These Oreo Truffles Balls are so simple to make and they make for a perfect candy to gift during the holidays.
We are HUGE truffle fans, especially around the holidays. These Oreo Truffles are my favorite. They are so simple to make and they are delicious. I actually made these to share with all of you couple years ago and forgot to put them up on the blog. When I found the pictures, I wasn’t too happy, lol.
I made them again today to take new pictures. My kids were excited to see I was making a batch. The were just a bit disappointed they were not ready before they headed out for class. I expect this batch I made will go quickly.
We like to gift food for gifts during the holidays. This year, I plan to gift some of our Chocolate Covered Cherries, Homemade Peanut Brittle, our Chocolate Caramel Dipped Pretzels, and also these easy Oreo Truffles.
Gifting food to neighbors, family, and friends is perfect. I like to pickup inexpensive Dollar Store tins and boxes or cellophane bags work great too.
Since these Oreo truffles are so stinking easy, I can make them quite quickly. The only ingredients needed are Oreo cookies, cream cheese, and melting chocolates. For Christmas, I usually throw on some sprinkles to make them a bit festive.

8 oz softened Cream Cheese
