We recommend Ghirardelli melting wafers for coating your truffles, since they coat evenly and smoothly. If you're unable to purchase these and opt for an alternative, adding 1/2 teaspoon of shortening for each ounce of chocolate when melting will result in a smoother, more manageable consistency.
With their silky chocolate coatings and creamy, fudgy centers, Oreo truffles are positively addicting! These delicious homemade truffles are shockingly simple to make and perfect for any occasion. They are also amazingly versatile -- adjusting an ingredient or two will make a world of difference.
Oreo truffles are easy to prepare, and they're just as easy to customize.
Many ingredients in our Oreo truffles are not suitable for all diets. However, there are substitutions available for those looking to prepare this simple dessert.
If you can't eat dairy, swap the Oreos for Back to Nature creme cookies. These are completely dairy-free cookies with no risk of cross-contamination with other dairy products. Substitute Enjoy Life mini semisweet chocolate chips for the melting wafers. Swap regular cream cheese for dairy-free cream cheese from Daiya.
If you're gluten-free, the following brands make great gluten-free alternatives to Oreos: KinniToos, Glutino, Great Value, and Trader Joe's. Avoid melting wafers by Ghirardelli or Wilton, since they may contain wheat. Use allergy-free chocolate, such as Enjoy Life mini semisweet chocolate chips.
These outrageously delicious truffles will make the perfect ending to any special occasion. Avoid the candy aisle and prepare these sweet homemade confections!
