Five different ways to dress up an OREO Cookie truffle for Christmas — Santa’s hat, Reindeer, Ornament, Snowman, and Christmas hearts. These easy and delicious Christmas OREO Cookie truffles are perfect for a party, to gift to neighbors, bring into work, or enjoy with your family!

Oreo Cookie Truffle Tip:

Please note that each recipe below is for making an entire batch of ONE type of truffle. If you want to make all five (or an assortment of some of them) then you’ll want to make 1 batch of the OREO cookie truffles and then scale down the decoration ingredients to exactly how many of each truffle you want. (The total quantity of truffles you’ll end up with depends on the size you roll them out.)Image of the Santa hat Oreo truffle for these five Christmas Oreo cookie truffles

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) regular OREO Cookies
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) red candy melts
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 18-20 miniature marshmallows
  • White Nonpareils Sprinkles
  • Optional: vegetable oil to make the candy melts easier to work with

Instructions

  • Pulse the full OREO Cookies (no need to separate cream from cookie) in a food processor or blender until it is in crumbs.
  • Using a hand-held mixer, beat the cookie crumbs and cream cheese together until well combined.
  • Roll the mixture into balls. Form those balls into tall triangles; the shape of a hat.
  • Chill the triangle balls, covered tightly, for an hour in the fridge OR place in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  • Once the triangles are chilled, melt the red candy melts according to package directions. You may need a teaspoon (or a few) of vegetable oil to get the chocolate thin enough to dip in. Every chocolate is a little different so if needed, I'll just add the oil slowly until it coats the truffles well.)
  • Place the triangle OREO Cookie truffle on a fork and then spoon the melted chocolate evenly over the ball. Tap the fork holding the truffle to remove excess chocolate.
  • Slide the truffle carefully onto parchment paper and immediately (it hardens quickly) press the miniature marshmallow on top of the hat. Allow the truffle to harden completely.
  • Once hardened, melt the white chocolate in bursts of 15 seconds, stirring in between each burst for 15 seconds until completely melted.
  • Dip just the marshmallow into the melted chocolate (just barely coat) and then dip in a bowl of the white sprinkles. Shake off the excess.
  • Repeat for the  base -- dip in melted white chocolate (or spoon it on) and then dip in the bowl of sprinkles. Allow to set up at room temperature.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

Depending on how quickly you work and/or how fast the chocolate hardens, you might have to re-melt the chocolate a few times.

A few quick tips

  • Use high-quality chocolate chips. My favorites are Ghirardelli® and Guittard® (not sponsored). The higher the quality of chocolate used, the tastier your Oreo Truffles will be.
  • You can use a red Mini M&Ms or Red Hot Candies for the nose!

Ornament Oreo Cookie Truffles

A few quick tips: 

  • I’ve found it’s easiest to place the Oreo ball on top of a large fork and to spoon chocolate over. Tap that fork against the bowl a few times to make the chocolate nice and smooth and then slide the fork against the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate.
  • You can buy mini Reeses unwrapped to save time!

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) OREO Cookies
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 package (12 ounces) green candy melts
  • 18-20 red heart sprinkles
  • Optional: vegetable oil if needed to thin the chocolate

Instructions

  • Pulse the full OREO Cookies (no need to separate cream from cookie) in a food processor or blender until it is in crumbs.
  • Using a hand held mixer, beat the OREO Cookie crumbs and cream cheese together until well combined. Roll the mixture into balls. Chill the balls, covered tightly, for an hour in the fridge OR freeze for 20 minutes.

  • Press a red heart candy in the center.
  • Allow to dry at room temperature. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

There are a few options for the "heart" center -- heart sprinkles, miniature heart cinnamon candies, or piping on the shape of a heart with red candy melts. If you're making the Santa hat along with these truffles, it might be easiest (and saves you from buying another ingredient) to transfer some melted red chocolate into a small plastic bag, cut off the tip, and pipe on the shape of a heart.
