While there is something really heartwarming about slaving away in the kitchen making homemade chocolates, I gotta tell you that these Oreo truffle recipes are a heck of a lot easier. 

The first 8 years of our marriage, I made Gabriel homemade chocolates every Valentine’s Day. You know, the ones where you make a buttercream caramel and let it cool on granite before mixing it for hours, until it turns into the kind of candy that you buy for $20 a pound from a high scale chocolate store. 

And, I loved doing it! But since I discovered the simplicity of oreo truffle recipes, I haven’t made him homemade chocolates even once! 

Mint Oreo Truffle

It was the 9th year we celebrated Valentine’s together when I was 32 weeks pregnant with the twins that I had to break from tradition. I was tired and I couldn’t stand in one place for more than 5 minutes. For that reason, I was almost tempted to buy Gabriel chocolates, but it broke my heart to think of totally eliminating this tradition.

Instead of slaving away at old fashioned cream filled chocolates, I opted for Cookie Truffles! Oreo Truffles, Mint Oreo Truffles, Nutella Oreo Truffles, the list goes on! 

Now that the twins are older, maybe I’ll get back to doing it the old fashioned way and teach them the trade, but until then these are such a great alternative!

When Making Oreo Truffles do you Remove the Cream?

No, you definitely do not want to remove the cream when you make Oreo truffles. Place the whole cookie in the blender and mix until pulverized. The cream in the Oreo cookie will add the depth of flavor to the truffle that you want!

These Oreo truffles will last a lot longer than you have the willpower to keep them in the pantry! Stick them in the fridge for about 3 weeks, or freeze them for a later date.

  1. I've made the Oreo truffles several times and they're always a big hit even though I don't love them. I think your variations all sound delish!

    I don't have a sweetheart so didn't do anything, but have lots of ideas for when/if I ever do. 🙂
