Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour


  • 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


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


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.
