This oreo truffles recipe is soooooooo fun! I obviously didn’t make it up, as they’ve been around forever (and almost always my fave item on a cookie tray!), but I did want to share a fun holiday version, so these cute Halloween oreo truffles are it! These 3-ingredient truffles come together quickly and are beyond delicious. I’ll show you how to turn these into a Halloween treat, but I’m also sharing other ideas for different holidays below.

  • Oreo cookies – You’ll obviously need oreos to make oreo truffle balls! Use regular oreos for a classic version, but if you want to switch up the flavors, you can use whatever flavor you like.
  • Cream cheese – Use full fat cream cheese for best results.
  • Candy melts – You’ll need a white “chocolate” that melts. You can use candy melts, white chocolate chips or almond bark.
  • Writing gel or candy eyes – This is what you’ll use to decorate the truffles to look like ghosts.

Coat truffles. Using a fork, dip truffle into white chocolate and fully submerge so it’s totally covered. Let excess chocolate drip off and then set back on parchment paper. Add eyes. If using eye candy, place them on while chocolate is sticky, otherwise let chocolate harden and then draw on eyes with the writing gel.

Yes, this recipe can be used all year long and once you try it, you’ll want to make them on a regular basis. 🙂 Simply shape into balls and then you can decorate however you like! Here are some ideas:

  • Halloween Monster truffles – Similar to my monster cookies, you can use bright colors and monster eyes.
  • Christmas – Sprinkle with Christmas sprinkles while the chocolate is still tacky. Or drizzle with a red and green candy melt.
  • Valentine’s Day – Use a pink candy melt and top with heart sprinkles.
  • Birthday – Add bright and colorful sprinkles.

Units Scale



  1. In a food processor or blender, process the Oreos until you have fine crumbs.
  2. Add in the cream cheese and process until combined.
  3. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop the dough into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes until the dough has firmed up. (This makes it easier to work with.)
  4. While the Oreo truffles are in the freezer, melt the candy melts, white chocolate chips or almond bark. You can use the microwave, microwaving in about 15 second increments and stirring in between or use a double boiler on the stove. 
  5. Remove the truffles from the freezer, roll each ball of dough out into the shape of a ghost. Then, using a fork, coat the entire truffle with melted white chocolate, tap off excess chocolate, and set back onto the parchment paper lined sheet pan. If you are using candy eyes for the eyes, be sure to place them on while the chocolate is still tacky.
  6. Allow the chocolate layer to harden. Once the chocolate is firm, use the black writing gel to draw the eyes and the mouth.
