If you remember my last few recipes, like Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars and Nutella Cheesecake, and now these truffles, maybe you have noticed that all are no-bake recipes. Maybe you are thinking that I’m getting a little lazy (well, there is some truth in that) but it is not the main reason for my choice. I’m a real Oreo Cookies addict (like many of you) and I totally love every dessert which is made of it. Oreo Cream Cheese Truffles have been seen numerous times, especially on Christmas cookie plates, but as for me, it’s never enough!

Since we are closer and closer to Valentine’s day, I came to the idea to make an interesting twist with this classic treat, and make my Oreo Truffles in the shape of a heart. I was a little suspicious that my idea to cut the truffles with a cookie cuter will not be successful. But not only was it successful, it turned out that it is much quicker and easier than to roll dozens of balls with your hand. It is really a piece of cake, you ground  the Oreo, mix it with creme cheese, spread the mixture onto a baking paper, place in the freezer for awhile (so you could cut the truffles more easily) and then dip the hearts  into melted chocolate.Oreo Truffles now in a new, special Valentines day Edition :).

I dipped these truffles into chocolate twice so I would get the thick lair of crunchy shell(just as I like it), but it is your choice if you will make this additional step. Although, it has one advantage, besides looking better and being tastier, you don’t have to be so careful when you dip the truffles into the chocolate, because if don’t cover them perfect with the first layer, you will surely cover it with the second. You can add some sprinkles for festive looks, and also, they add extra crispiness and are in a perfect harmony with the creamy texture of the truffles.

Don’t be scared, maybe they look complicated, but these Oreo Truffles are so simple and easy to make, so tasty, that there is no chance you will regret the work you put in. Although, they have one downside, when you serve them, they disappear in the blink of an eye.

Oreo Truffles Valentine's Hearts

3 ingredients heart shaped Oreo Cream Cheese Truffles covered with white chocolate, perfect for Valentine's Day

Save Recipe

Ingredients

24 Oreo cookies-crushed into fine crumbs

5 oz. softened cream cheese

12-14 oz. high quality white chocolate (you can use white chocolate candy coating or vanilla almond bark)

Heart shaped sprinkles-optional


Instructions

  • Line a tray with baking paper.
  • Crush whole Oreos with the filling in a really fine crumbs and combine it with softened cream cheese.
  • You can do this by hands, press it with a back of the spoon, or use a mixer with paddle attachment(the mixture is really thick and I prefer to knead it by hand).
  • When it’s all evenly combined transfer the mixture onto baking paper and spread it in an even layer about 1/2 inch thick (or more, depending how large is your cookie cuter).
  • Place the tray in the freezer for 45 mins (or more) until it’s harden enough for cutting.
  • Cut out the truffles with heart shaped cookie cuter and place them back in the freezer for 20-30 mins(truffles must be frozen before dipping into chocolate).
  • Line another tray with baking paper and set aside.
  • Take a few hearts from the freezer ( so the rest won’t soften while you are working) and dip one frozen hearts at the time into melted chocolate with a fork. Tap off the excess chocolate and transfer the hearts onto baking paper and top with sprinkles (if you don’t want to dip them twice in the chocolate). If you want to cover the truffles with second layer of chocolate( like I did), then after first dipping into chocolate, place chocolate covered hearts in the freezer to harden the chocolate faster and repeat the dipping process, and then top with sprinkles.
  • Work in small batches because the heart must be frozen when place them into melted chocolate.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge(or freezer for longer storage).
  • This recipe makes 16-20 small (about1.5 inch) hearts.

  1. Hi, I have a question, when the oreo cookie with cream cheese mix , you must remove the cream that brings inside, the oreo cookie, or it is also part of the mix.

    1. If you use toll house chocolate chips I recommend adding some lard when melting. The chocolate chips harden faster than other chocolates while you dip the truffles! Reheating constantly. ?

  2. I’d like to make these for a graduation using a graduation cap cookie cutter. Because the Oreo mix is the same color as the graduation cap I don’t want to dip in white choc. Maybe dark choc is ok, bu

  3. Sorry my comment get cut off. Do you think the Oreo and cream cheese mix would be tasty enough on its own, without the chocolate? Thanks!

  4. I’m about to make these right now. My only question is do they have to stay refrigerated or can they be left out?

    1. Hi Scarlet, you can left them out but not too long because they have cream cheese, and it’s safer to keep them in the fridge.

  5. Hi,

    I was wondering if you have any advice on melting the chocolate. I have the worst time with that. I get it so close, and then BAM! over done. I tried a glass bowl sitting in hot water, as well as a glass bowl in the microwave (heating at something like 10 seconds at a time). I’m looking forward to trying this out and appreciate your advice. Thank you!

  6. Hi, I’m wondering if you think these would last for a few days in the mail? If I packaged them and shipped them, approximately how long do you think they could stay good for?
    Thanks!

  7. HI! this recipe is awesome! I loved it, Im just wondering how to melt the chocolate? and do you think that I can melt it with hershey chocolate bars or something like that??? Thank you very much!

  8. Hi, made these today. Turned out great, bit it was super tricky when I was putting om the chocolate..! Thanks, great for Valentine’s Day! ☺️
