Oreo Truffle Bites

I’ve been seeing a lot of posts recently about Oreo Truffles. I guess chocolate and the month of love just go so well together that recipes such as this one are a wining combo!

But what I love about this recipe is the convenience. Only and handful of ingredients. Would that make my friend Elle happy or what? Besides the fact that she’s completely addicted to chocolate. Oh, come on, Elle, you know it’s true!

And another thing I love about this recipe is the Oreo cookies. I didn’t realize that vegans were known to have such an affinity for the accidentally vegan fare. A friend who was originally from the East coast recently told me that in college all his vegan friends loved Oreo cookies. I guess it was the only vending machine snack food they could eat.

Vegan Oreo Truffle Bites are a tasty treat for Valentine's Day

Even vegans enjoy comfort food from time to time.

So three ingredients, easy to make, and Oreo cookies. What more could a girl ask for? Well, a super high metabolism would be nice. I’ll take one of those, please!

Tasty vegan oreo truffles are a bite-size snack!

I have a feeling I’m stuck with the metabolism I’ve got. That’s why I made these truffles bite-size. That way I can feel like I’m eating lots of them, but really I’m not. I have to engage in this kind of trickery with myself. Good for me I’m so gullible!

Vegan Oreo Truffle Bites in a pretty Valentine's Day Box - a perfect gift.

I saved my red velvet heart-shaped Valentine’s Day box from last year. These bite-size Oreo Truffles look so pretty in that box, don’t you think? Don’t worry, honey, you can still get me some vegan chocolates for Valentine’s Day. I’m sure these will be long gone by Monday anyway!

Vegan Oreo Truffle Bites

Ingredients:

  • 1 package Oreo Cookies (regular or double-stuff is fine)
  • 1 8 oz package of Vegan Cream Cheese (I used Tofutti’s)
  • 2 Cups dairy free chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • Sprinkles (optional)

Directions:

Put the Oreo cookies in a food processor and pulse until finely crumbled. Pour the crumbs into a bowl and add the container of vegan cream cheese. Stir together. This will be a bit sticky, but the next step will solve that. Put the container in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. I used a teaspoon to measure out bite-size truffle balls. Roll them between your hands to get them nice and evenly sized. Place finished balls on a cookie tray lined with wax paper. When done, place the tray in the fridge for another 30 minutes or so.

Use your preferred method for melting chocolate chips. I melted mine over very low heat in a small saucepan. Add the Coconut Oil and mix together. Drop the truffle balls into the chocolate and place back on the wax paper lined cookie tray to dry. If you want to add any decorations (like sprinkles), now is the time to do it – before the chocolate firms up. Once all the chocolate is coated, place the tray back in the fridge to allow the chocolate to harden.

  1. This is definitely my go-to treat when in a pinch! They’re so easy, and we almost ALWAYS have Oreos in the cupboard!

    • You’re much better than I am. I’d love to say we always have Oreos in the cupboard. That sounds like a good new year’s goal though!

  2. I’m picking up the ingredients tomorrow! YUM!

    • I promise, you won’t regret it! Just don’t let your husband eat them all!

  3. Oh, so yummy! Gorgeous presentation too!

  4. I canNOT get enough of oreos with peanut butter! But only once a year, of course;) I think I will substitute some of the cream cheese for pb!

    • You know, I thought about that when I was making these – adding some peanut butter to the mix. I was worried that the peanut butter flavor would overpower. But tell me how your experiment goes – I might want to try that too!

  5. Yum! My mother-in-law makes these and non-vegan. I want to make them now.

  6. I LOVE these and have yet to try vegan cream cheese. What is the texture like?

    • It’s been awhile since I’ve had cow’s milk cream cheese, so it’s always hard for me to answer a question like this. To me, I don’t notice a difference in either taste or texture. I’ve prepared dishes for my omnivore friends/family and they agreed it tastes good. Some even liked it better because it’s not as filling. My favorite brand of vegan cream cheese is Tofutti. I’ve tried others and they didn’t measure up in taste.

  7. Wow, I have to do this! These look effortless. I’m just kind of scared I won’t stop eating them and I’ll get sick. I could save them for my co-workers maybe. Maybe.

  8. Awesome recipe…so easy to make. I will try it soon !

  9. really amazing!

  10. Yummeee………….these look amazing Marly! These would make a great teacher’s gift don’t you think? Loving the basketful, definitely would need that around here.

  11. Perfect Valentine’s treat. I would love to receive a box of these!

  12. is there an alternate to coconut oil? i’m an incredibly broke college student and coconut oil is super expensive and not sold in bulk where i live.

    • Oh, I have known those days! You could very easily replace coconut oil with non-hydrogenated shortening. That should work just fine!

  13. These are beautiful, Marly! I need to get some coconut oil and oreos;-)

    • What a combination, eh? They are sweet, but eaten in small doses (since they’re bite-size) helps.

  14. I love Oreo truffles…your vegan version sounds so yummy! BTW, I love your site, it’s so cute!

  15. Hi! These look so wonderful!! I was thinking about making them for an Easter treat, but was hoping you’d be able to tell me how long they’d stay fresh for? If I were to make them tomorrow would they last until Sunday? (6 days) Or should I eat them right away?

    • Ooh, that’s a tough question. I think I would do a batch today, eat them, and then make another batch for your dinner on Sunday. That way you can tweak the recipe if you want to. You know, it’s good to be a thorough cook!
