Heart Oreo Truffle Ingredients

  • Oreo cookies: Regular Oreos; don’t use Double-Stuf.
  • Cream cheese: Full-fat, brick-style here.
  • Chocolate: High-quality bars or melting wafers for smooth melting.
  • Coconut oil: The oil thins the chocolate; vegetable oil works too.
  • Optional toppings: Oreo crumbs for texture, white chocolate for a drizzle.

Tips For Making Heart Oreo Truffles:

  • Cream cheese: Soften to room temperature for smooth mixing.
  • Press evenly: Compress and flatten the mixture in a pan with a measuring cup.
  • Chill well: Proper chilling keeps shapes firm during cutting and dipping.
  • Hot cookie cutter: Run the cutter under hot water and dry quickly for clean edges.
  • Work in batches: Dip in batches, keeping others chilled.

Ingredients

  • 36 regular Oreo cookies, leave in creme
  • 8 ounces full-fat, brick-style cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups (12 oz.) milk, semi-sweet, or dark chocolate melting wafers (Note 1)
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • Optional: Oreo crumbs for topping, white chocolate for drizzling on top

Instructions

  • PREP: Line an 8x8-inch pan with parchment paper or foil, ensuring an overhang for easy removal. Set aside. Line a large sheet pan with a silicone liner or parchment paper. Set aside.
  • BLEND OREOS: Place the whole Oreos (cookie and filling) in a food processor or blender. Pulse until you achieve a fine crumb. Re-process any large pieces. Transfer crumbs into a large mixing bowl.
  • MAKE FILLING: Combine the Oreo crumbs with softened cream cheese. Use a stand mixer or electric hand mixers to beat until well combined.
  • CHILL: Press the mixture into the prepared pan, compressing to an even layer. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or freeze for 1 hour if short on time.
  • CUT: Once chilled, lift the mixture from the pan using the overhang. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out shapes. (You can re-roll any leftovers into small balls.)
  • MELT CHOCOLATE: Combine the chocolate and oil in a glass bowl. Microwave in 15-second increments, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. Allow to cool for ~5 minutes to prevent melting the truffles when dipping.
  • DIP TRUFFLES: Dip each heart truffle into the melted chocolate, ensuring an even coat. Lift out with a fork, tap to remove excess chocolate, and use a toothpick to eliminate any bubbles. Use a table knife to gently slide the truffle onto a lined sheet to set.
  • OPTIONAL: Immediately sprinkle with Oreo crumbs if desired, or let the chocolate set slightly before drizzling with melted white chocolate.
  • SET & STORE: Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow the chocolate to set. Store in an airtight container, separated by parchment or wax paper, in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. (Due to the cream cheese, these truffles must be refrigerated.)

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Chocolate:  We recommend chocolate made for melting like good quality baking bars (such as Baker's, Lindt, or Ghiradelli) or good quality melting wafers (such as Ghiradelli) for best results. (Both bars and melts are found in the baking aisle of the store--we like using melts best for ease!). Use whatever flavor of chocolate you like best!
Make Ahead and  Freeze: You can prepare the shaped balls a couple of days in advance (store in an airtight container). Freeze the finished truffles for 2-3 months and thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
