Our Oreo Mint Truffles recipe is easily made simply by combining crushed OREO cookies with softened cream cheese, rolling them into balls, coating them in melted chocolate, and decorating the with a drizzle of candy.

No-bake Oreo mint truffle balls are the perfect treat for Christmas parties, St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, or can be dressed up in sprinkles and festive colors for any other holiday.

These mint Oreo balls are my family’s favorite finger food!

With their soft and creamy texture and sweet and tangy taste, the flavor is similar to mint chocolate chip cookies and cream ice cream but served chilled as mint chocolate balls instead of frozen as scoops.

  • Only uses 3 ingredients plus optional decoration.
  • Soft, creamy mint Oreo cheesecake mixture in the middle and hardened chocolate coating on the outside.
  • Single-serving snacks are pre-portioned and portable.

How to Make Mint Oreo Truffles

  1. Make The Middle Mixture: Beat the cream cheese until smooth and then add the crushed cookies. Beat the mixture until well incorporated. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Roll Until Round: Scoop the mixture and roll it into balls.
  3. Melt The Chocolate: Microwave the almond bark for 1 minute, stir, and continue heating in 30-second intervals until melted and smooth.
  4. Dip And Decorate: Roll each truffle in the melted chocolate to completely coat. Decorate with a drizzle of melted green candy melts.
  5. Serve: Allow the truffles to harden completely before serving. Enjoy!

Tips for Making Oreo Truffles

  • Since Oreo cookies per package were reduced from 40 to 39, I use 38 cookies for this recipe.
  • If you are using a food processor to crush the cookies, I have found it much easier to crush the cookies in batches. The cookies are usually packaged in rows of 3, and that’s how I break up the batches.
  • Always make sure the cream cheese is properly softened to help avoid cream cheese lumps in the truffle dough.

How to Store Homemade Truffles

  • To Store: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • To Freeze: You can freeze the truffles for up to 3 months. Allow the truffles to thaw overnight in the refrigerator before serving.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do Oreo truffles need to be refrigerated?

Yes, truffles should be kept in the fridge until you serve them. I personally think they taste best when cold. However, they can be left at room temperature. According to the FDA, cream cheese can be left out at room temperature for up to 2 hours.

Can I use chocolate chips instead of almond bark to coat my truffles?

Either almond bark or candy wafer melts is the best option to coat truffles because they create a smooth texture. However, if you choose to use chocolate chips, you will need to add 1 tbsp of coconut oil to each 8 oz of chocolate chips you’re melting for a smooth finish.

What is the best way to dip truffles in melted chocolate?

The best method to coat these balls in chocolate is to use a fork and gently tap any excess chocolate on the side of the bowl. I like to use a toothpick to remove the excess melted wafer from the bottom of the fork and then gently push the ball onto the baking sheet.

How should I crush my Oreo cookies?

You can crush your Oreo cookies in a blender or food processor or you can place the cookies in a Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin. Make sure you crush the entire cookie and do not remove the filling! I used a food processor to crush my cookies and was able to get 4 cups of cookie crumbs.

Mint Oreo Truffles are soft and creamy in the middle and coated in chocolate, these bite-sized balls are festive for the holidays and make great gifts.
Prep Time 15 mins
Chill Time 1 hr
Total Time 1 hr 15 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 38 finely crushed mint Oreo cookies with cream centers, I used a food processor to crush my cookies. I was able to get 4 cups of cookie crumbs
  • 12 ounces chocolate almond bark
  • 1 cup green candy melts optional garnish

Instructions
 

  • Using either a stand mixer or a handheld mixer on medium-high speed, beat the cream cheese for 1-1½ minutes until smooth.
  • Add the crushed cookies and continue to beat the cream cheese mixture until well incorporated. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
  • Use a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop the Oreo mixture. Roll the scoops into balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Add the chocolate almond bark to a medium-sized heat-safe mixing bowl. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute, and stir well. Continue heating in 30-second intervals until completely melted and smooth.
  • Roll each truffle in the melted almond bark. Place the truffle on a fork and gently tap to remove any excess coating. Use a spoon to pour the coating over any bare spots. Use a toothpick to gently push the truffle onto the baking sheet.
  • Once all the truffles are coated, add the green candy melts to a small heat-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval until smooth. Use either a fork, a drizzle spoon, or a small squeeze bottle to lightly drizzle the melted green candy melts over the coated truffles. Allow the truffles to harden completely before serving.
