Get ready to make the easiest dessert ever-super indulgent Dark Chocolate Oreo Mint Truffles!



  • 1 package Mint Oreos
  • 8 oz package of cream cheese (the recipe turns out just as good with light cream cheese)
  • 10 oz bag of dark chocolate morsels
  • sprinkles (optional)


  1. Place Oreos in a food processor and pulse until finely crumbed.
  2. Transfer crumbs to a stand mixer (affiliate link) and add cream cheese, mix on medium speed until well blended, scraping sides as needed.
  3. Roll cookie/cheese mixture into 1.5″ balls and place on wax paper lined plate.
  4. Freeze balls for 20 minutes.
  5. In a small bowl, microwave dark chocolate morsels 45 seconds at a time, stirring afterwards, until melted.
  6. Use a fork to dip the truffles in the chocolate and turn to coat.
  7. Scoop the truffle out using the fork (don’t pierce it, just scoop the fork underneath) and tap on the side of the bowl a few times to remove excess chocolate.
  8. Set the truffle on a wax paper covered plate to firm up. If you want to add sprinkles as I did, do it immediately after dipping before the chocolate hardens.
  9. Place truffles in the freezer 45 minutes to completely harden before serving.
  10. Keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
