Prepare for assembling: Add parchment paper to two baking sheets and set aside for later.
Assemble the truffle base: To a food processor, add the Oreo cookies and process them until small crumbs form. Then add the softened cream cheese, cocoa powder, and vanilla extract and process until a "dough" is formed.
Assemble the truffles: Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls using your hands. Roll them in a bowl of chocolate sprinkles until coated, then place them onto the prepared cookie sheet and chill them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Decorate the truffle bats: Take the second package of Oreos and remove the cream in each. Use a sharp knife to cut the cookie in half.
Features: Press each piece into the side of each truffle to create the wings, then press on the candy eyes and glue them on with some decorating icing.
Store in the fridge in a sealed container.
If you don't have a food processor, don't worry! You can simply crush the Oreos by putting them in a ziplock bag and crushing them with a rolling pin.
Be sure to use full-fat cream cheese for best results.
Let the chocolate truffles set in the fridge for at least half an hour before adding the Oreo wings, so they have time to firm up.
Use a sharp knife to cut the Oreo cookies to keep them from crumbling or breaking apart.
For a fun twist, try using different flavored Oreos like pumpkin spice or mint.
You can also dip the truffles in white chocolate and decorate them with orange and black sprinkles to make ghost truffles.
If you want to make this recipe even easier, you can use store-bought truffles and just add the oreo wings and candy eyes.
Change up the flavor extract you use to add different tastes to your oreo truffles. Some good options are almond, mint, vanilla, or orange extract.
Storage & Freezing
To store, add them to a sealed airtight container and keep them in the fridge for up to a week.
You can also freeze them for up to two months; just be sure to thaw them in the fridge overnight before serving.
If stored in an airtight container in the fridge, they should last for up to a week. Keep in mind that the truffle will dry out over time as well as the cookie wings.
If you're looking for a dairy-free option, you can use a vegan cream cheese like Daiya. Marscarpone also works well as a dairy substitution.
Yes, you can! In fact, they actually taste better if you make them a day or two in advance. This gives the flavors a chance to meld together and the truffles have time to firm up in the fridge. Make the base of the truffle, then add wings and eyeballs when you're ready to serve.
