I have always loved fun Halloween-themed treats, and these truffles are the perfect, easy Halloween treat! With only three ingredients and no cooking required, they are quick and easy but still creamy and decadent. Perfect for a Halloween party or potluck. Enjoy!
- 1 (8 oz) block of full-fat cream cheese
- 1 (14.3 oz) package regular Oreos
- 12oz white chocolate baking chips
- Small bag (1.69oz) of M&Ms
- Gel food coloring (red, blue and black)
- 2 tablespoons milk chocolate chips (optional)
- Place wax paper or parchment paper on a baking sheet and set aside.
- Crush Oreos into fine crumbs. You can do this in a food processor or place it in a zip-top bag and roll over it with a rolling pin.
- Place cream cheese and oreo into a medium mixing bowl and mix thoroughly until completely mixed and no streaks of cream cheese remain.
- Scoop with a tablespoon, roll in a ball, place on a prepared baking sheet, and freeze for at least 15 minutes
- Melt white chocolate (check out this article on how to melt chocolate). Dip the truffles in chocolate and place them back on the baking sheet, and chill until the chocolate is firm.
- Use a dot of melted chocolate to stick an M&M on the top of the truffle. Then use the gel frosting to pipe red "veins" onto the eyes. If desired, melt the milk chocolate chips and use a toothpick to put a small dot of frosting on the center of the M&M.
- Store in the fridge but allow for an hour of time at room temperature to warm up before eating.
You can use regular or "Double Stuf" Oreos in this recipe. I used Double Stuf when making this recipe, and the truffles turned out perfectly.
You may find your white chocolate is too thick and difficult to dip the truffles or pipe. To help thin it out, you can add neutral-flavored oil (such as vegetable oil) 1 teaspoon at a time until at the desired texture.
You can also use colored candy melts instead of coloring the white chocolate. You do have to use gel food coloring as liquid food dye can cause your chocolate to seize.

Due to the cream cheese, you should store Oreo truffles in the fridge. You can store Oreo truffles in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 weeks. Oreo truffles can also be frozen in an airtight container and should last 2-3 months though it may slightly change the texture of the chocolate coating.
The Best Way to Dip Oreo Truffles
Dipping Oreo truffles can be a bit tricky, and it is easy to end up with lumpy, messy chocolates. While there are various methods to make dipping chocolates easier, I prefer this method.
- Place the truffle in the melted chocolate and use a fork to cover it in the chocolate.
- Use your fork to scoop the truffle out of the bowl.
- Tap the fork against the side of the bowl, so the excess melted chocolate drips off of the truffle. Then use the side of the bowl to scrape off the extra chocolate on the bottom of the fork.
- Carefully slide the truffle off the fork and onto a tray lined with a silicone liner or parchment paper. I use a toothpick to slide under the truffle and slide it off of the fork.
