How To Make Oreo Balls Without Cream Cheese
A full printable version of this recipe with ingredient measurements is available at the bottom of this post.
STEP ONE: In a food processor, crumble your cookies until the texture is a fine crumb.
STEP TWO: Slowly add the condensed milk to the food processor, mixing until it reaches the texture of cookie dough.
STEP THREE: Use a cookie scoop to measure, then form your truffles by rolling them in your hands. Lay them on a lined baking sheet, place a toothpick in each one, and refrigerate for an hour to set.
STEP FOUR: Once the truffles have chilled, melt your milk chocolate. Then, using the toothpick as a handle, dip the truffles into your melted chocolate before placing them back on the lined baking sheet.
STEP FIVE: Refrigerate for 30 more minutes until the chocolate is set.
STEP SIX: Remove the toothpick. Dip your finger into the chocolate and add a dab to seal the hole from the toothpick.
STEP SEVEN: Melt your white chocolate, pour into a Ziploc baggie, and cut the tip of a corner off. Use as a piping bag to create your white drizzle.
STEP EIGHT: Allow to set in the refrigerator for 30 more minutes, then serve.
What Can I Use As A Cream Cheese Substitute For Oreo Truffles?
The trick is to make the Oreo balls with condensed milk instead of cream cheese! Combined with the filling of Double Stuf Oreos, we get the perfect truffle center!
I recommend using Double Stuf Oreos because the extra filling helps bind the truffle together. It also balances the condensed milk and keeps the recipe from being too rich.
For me, cream cheese always seems to overpower the flavor of my truffles. But these Oreo truffles with condensed milk hit the spot every time!
How Do You Crush Oreos for Oreo Balls?
I think using a food processor is the most effective way to blend up the Oreos. You just pulse until you have the perfect texture.
However, if you don’t have a food processor or want to avoid the extra dishes, that’s no problem! Toss your Oreos in a gallon-sized bag and crush them with a rolling pin until you get that fine crumb.
How to Melt the Chocolate for Oreo Truffles
A double boiler is one of the easiest ways to melt chocolate, but a microwave will do the trick as well.
I usually lower the power setting on my microwave to half power, then microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between each one until I reach my desired consistency.
How to Dip Oreo Balls in Chocolate
By sticking a toothpick in the truffles before letting them chill in the fridge, we set ourselves up for easy dipping!
Once the truffles are set and chocolate has melted, just grab hold of the toothpick, dip the truffle, and voila. So easy.
What is the Best Chocolate to Use to Make Oreo Cookie Balls?
I love the Ghirardelli Melting Wafers, but there are a few other options that make for great Oreo balls!
I recommend avoiding normal semi-sweet chocolate chips when possible. If you do need to use them, add a tiny amount of coconut oil to the chocolate before melting to help with the texture and consistency.
How Long Will Oreo Truffles Keep in the Refrigerator?
These tasty treats will stay fresh in the refrigerator for about a week… if they last that long! Just make sure to store them in an airtight container or gallon zipper bag.
Can I Freeze these Oreo Truffles Without Cream Cheese?
Absolutely! Place them in an airtight container or gallon zipper bag, then store them in the freezer for up to three months.
When you’re ready to eat them, I recommend letting the Oreo balls thaw in the refrigerator overnight. After that, these delicious treats will be ready to enjoy!
How Can I Turn these into 3 Ingredient Oreo Balls?
When it comes to simplicity, nothing beats a 3 ingredient recipe!
I love using milk chocolate for the shell with white chocolate for the drizzle. It gives the Oreo truffles such a nice color effect.
However, if you’re looking for an easier solution, you can leave off the white chocolate drizzle.
