  • Red Candy Hearts – Feel free to use any type of red heart candy to add to the design of these truffles.

Step by Step Instructions:

Step 1 – Line a cutting board or baking sheet with parchment paper. Finely crush Oreos in a food processor.

Step 2 – Combine cream cheese and crushed cookies until well blended in a large mixing bowl.

Step 3 – Form mixture into 1″ balls and place on a prepared sheet. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes. This will make it easier to dip the balls in the coating.

Step 4 – Stir well.  Then continue to heat in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval until the almond bark is completely melted.  Add in the gel green food coloring and stir until you have your preferred color.  

Step 5 – Using a fork to dip each ball into the green candy coating to completely coat. Shake off excess and return to the baking sheet.  

Step 6 – Place a heart sprinkle on each truffle before the almond bark sets.  Let the truffle completely sit at room temperature until the almond hardens.  Then the truffles are ready to serve and enjoy! 

Recipe Tips:

  • Food Coloring – Make sure to use gel food coloring in this recipe. Liquid food coloring will cause the almond bark to seize.  
  • Freeze Oreo Balls – Freeze the Oreo balls prior to dipping. It will make them more manageable.
  • Crushing Oreos – If you do not have a food processor, place the Oreo cookies in a ziplock bag. Crush with the back of a spoon or rolling pin.
  • Coating Oreo Balls – The easiest way to coat the truffles is to use a fork to tap the excess chocolate off the Oreo balls.
  • Scooping Dough – Small Cookie scoop make it so much easier to form the balls. The process goes faster and they all will be uniform.
  • Line Baking Sheet – It is helpful to line the baking sheet with parchment paper before adding the Oreo balls. It will make cleanup so much easier. You can just toss the paper when you are finished.
  • Melting Chocolate – Microwave the almond bark in increments. It is important to stir in between each increment and continue melting in increments. This will prevent it from burning.

How to Dip Oreo Balls in Chocolate:

The best way we have found to dip the Oreo Balls into the melted chocolate is with a fork. You want to make sure to not skip the step to freeze the Oreo Balls.

As this makes it a lot easier to dip into the melted chocolate. The Oreo Balls will stay together and not fall apart.
