Quick Video Tutorial:

You all completely BLEW me away with how much you loved the last Halloween Oreo Truffles (see here: bat, mummy, pumpkin, and monster oreo balls) so there absolutely had to be a sequel. And I’ll admit right now, these have taken my favorite spot for Halloween Oreo truffles. I hope you all like them just as much! 

There are full written recipes for each truffle below. Please note that each recipe is for making an entire batch of ONE type of truffle. If you want to make all four or an assortment then you’ll want to make a regular batch of the Oreo truffles and then scale down the decoration parts to exactly how many of each Oreo truffle you want. The quantity of truffles you get of course depends on the size you roll them out. WITCH OREO BALL: Four different ways to dress up an oreo ball for Halloween -- a witch, spider, frankenstein, and an owl.

First up, WITCH TRUFFLES.

These are my all time favorites! A witch hat has always been my last minute go-to Halloween costume each year when I’ve procrastinated my costume decisions and spent time figuring out the boys costumes instead. So, basically, I’m going to most likely be a witch this Halloween. 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) regular Oreos
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) Dark Green Candy Melts
  • 36-40 Large Edible eyes
  • 1 package black licorice
  • 18-20 Thin Oreos
  • 18-20 Hershey's kisses
  • Optional: small green sprinkles, vegetable oil

Instructions

  • Pulse the full oreos (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 Oreos and cream cheese together until well combined.
  • Roll the mixture into balls.
  • Chill the balls, covered tightly, for an hour in the fridge.
  • Once the balls are chilled, melt the 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 oreo truffles well.)
  • Unwrap a kiss and dip the bottom of it into the melted chocolate. Press the kiss into the center of the oreo Thins.
  • Place an Oreo ball on a fork and then spoon the melted chocolate evenly over the ball. Tap the fork holding the ball to remove excess chocolate.
  • Slide the ball carefully onto parchment paper and immediately (it hardens quickly) press the hat on to the top of the oreo ball. Hold the edible eyes into the center. Press a "wart" small green sprinkle below the eye.
  • Cut the licorice into small pieces and attach as "hair" below the hat.
  • Allow to dry.

SPIDER OREO BALLS via chelseasmessyapron.com

Next up, SPIDER TRUFFLES. These are actually a recipe I shared last year, but they get a spot in the video tutorial this year. 🙂 The one thing I get asked is where to find black licorice. I’ve always found it in candy aisle with the individually wrapped “gourmet” candies (instead of with regular black and red licorice). I’ve also found it in gas stations (ha!) and if all else fails it’s always somewhere online!

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) regular Oreos
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) milk chocolate chips
  • 2-3 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 bag black licorice
  • 36-40 edible eyes
  • Optional: brown jimmies sprinkles

Instructions

  • Pulse the full oreos (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 Oreos and cream cheese together until well combined.
  • Roll the mixture into balls.
  • Chill the balls, covered tightly, for an hour in the fridge.
  • Once the balls are chilled, melt the chocolate chips 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 oreo truffles well.
  • Place a ball on a fork and then spoon the melted chocolate evenly over the ball. Tap the fork holding the ball to remove excess chocolate.
  • Before it dries, sprinkle the top of the ball with brown sprinkles and then press two candy eyes onto each ball.
  • Cut the licorice with scissors and press into the cookie ball. Do this before the chocolate has a chance to harden. It's helpful to insert two legs (one on each side) at a time to get leverage to press the legs fully in.
  • Allow the chocolate to harden and dry.

Third, FRANKENSTEIN TRUFFLES.

These guys crack me up — so cute and super easy to make! I used a different green candy melts color, but if you are making the witches at the same time, that green will work great for these.

  • Top the Frankenstein with sprinkles.

OWL OREO BALL: Four different ways to dress up an oreo ball for Halloween -- a witch, spider, frankenstein, and an owl. Easy and delicious treats that are perfect for a party! via chelseasmessyapron.com

Last, but definitely not least, OWL TRUFFLES. 

I had a hard time coming up with the last Halloween truffle and as soon as I thought of an owl, I had a blast trying to make it. The big eyes are just miniature oreos pulled apart with an M&M pressed into the center. The beak is also just an M&M! These are probably the easiest ones to make and the ingredients are super simple to find.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) regular Oreos
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) milk chocolate chips
  • 1 large box miniature Oreos
  • 36-40 blue M&Ms

Instructions

  • Pulse the full oreos (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 Oreos and cream cheese together until well combined.
  • Roll the mixture into balls.
  • Chill the balls, covered tightly, for an hour in the fridge.
  • Once the balls are chilled, melt the white chocolate in the microwave in bursts of 15 seconds, stirring in between each burst until melted. (This is technically another ingredient, but 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 oreo truffles well.)
  • Place a ball on a fork and then spoon the melted chocolate evenly over the ball. Tap the fork holding the ball to remove excess chocolate.
  • Slide the ball carefully onto parchment paper. Sprinkle some chocolate jimmies sprinkles on the head of the owl if desired.
  • Separate miniature oreos in half and use some more melted chocolate to attach blue M&Ms to the miniature oreos. Press into the oreo ball right below the sprinkles.
  • Place an orange M&M in between the two "eyes"
  • Allow to dry.

    1. Hi! You can freeze the oreo balls before dipping them in chocolate but they won’t taste or look good frozen after being dipped and decorated. Enjoy!
