Looking for an easy 3 ingredient holiday sweet treat? Well, these Christmas Oreo truffles are just that! Crushed Oreos mixed with cream cheese and dipped into chocolate – what’s not to love?
Sometimes the holidays require an easy-to-make sweet treat and this recipe is just that!
In fact, not only is it easy it’s ONLY 3 ingredients.
Seriously, that’s it.
Ok, maybe 4 ingredients if you could sprinkles but since I consider those optional I’m sticking with my 3 ingredient statement.
These little Christmas Oreo truffles give you a deep chocolate flavor all rolled up into a sweet ball dipped in chocolate and decorated with sprinkles.
Incredibly easy to make and even easy to eat! They will make the perfect addition to your holiday dessert tray!
What type of Oreo cookie should I use?
The great thing about this recipe is that it’s super customizable!
For this recipe, I used classic Oreo cookies BUT you could also use golden Oreos, gingerbread flavored Oreos, or even mint Oreos.
For summertime, I could see lemon Oreos as being a great substitution!
Just remember that the bulk of the flavor is coming from the cookie so just make sure if you replace the classic chocolate cookie with something different you’ll change the whole flavor of the cookie.
Why should I use room temperature cream cheese?
The reason we are using room-temperature cream cheese is that it will mix in and combine much easier than cold hard cream cheese.
In fact, I tried using cold cream cheese and it was impossible to get a smooth evenly distributed mixture.
If you forget to let your cream cheese soften you can microwave it for 10-15 seconds to help it soften. You don’t want to melt it though so keep an eye on it!
How to store Oreo truffles?
If you have any leftover Christmas Oreo truffles you’ll want to make sure to store them in an airtight container for up to a week.
I keep mine in my cold bedroom but the fridge also works.
You can keep them on the counter but I find if you have a warm house the chocolate stays soft and they stay fresher kept cold.
Can I freeze Oreo truffles?
Yes! But I like to freeze them without sprinkles as they can run when they start to defrost.
However, that is totally up to you!
