Time: 2 hours
Difficulty: Medium
When: Dessert | Big Dinner | Potluck

My Experience

I learned a few tips making this recipe:

  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler (or use two pots on top of each other)
  • Do NOT get any water on the chocolate chips or it will turn out clumpy when melting (wipe your pot dry)
  • Quickly dip the oreo balls into the melted chocolate before it turns clumpy

Ingredients

  • 1 Pack Mint Oreo’s (14.3oz)
  • 1 bar cream cheese (8oz)
  • 2 packs chocolate chips (~24oz total)

Directions

  1. Grind oreaos in a blender or magic bullet
  2. Add cream cheese and mix together oreos and cream cheese by hand into a BIG ball.
  3. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  4. Turn big ball into small balls. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  5. Melt chocolate chips using a double boiler or the microwave
  6. Drop the small ball of oreo goodness into the pot of chocolate. Remove with spoon.
  7. Freeze.

  1. I love how simple this recipe seems; it makes me think that I can make it – and I’ve never made dessert, in my life. And yay for cream cheese!

    • Grace it is very simple! The hardest part is melting the chocolate and working quick enough so it does not harden / become clumpy. Good luck and please let me know how it goes!

  2. These truffles are absolutely wonderful. Easy to make and taste great! I’ve never tried mint Oreo, but I’ve done lemon cookie with white chocolate coating and it tastes very refreshing. I’d love to try peanut butter someday, I just haven’t bothered yet.

  3. Wow I have to try those! Thank you for stopping by my blog. Just to let you know neither link to Chef Tess or Be Prepared Channel. That’s been corrected so please stop by and check them out. So much good information about food storage, recipes etc. Thanks again:)

  4. Sounds like you might have over heated your chocolate just a bit It shouldn’t get lumpy like that so fast. I have a tip for you. Next time add in just a bit of oil suck as vegetable oil to thin things out. It will also keep the chocolate from hardening up to fast on you. I know chocolate is temperamental! But besides that…
    This recipe sounds REALLY GOOD! I will have to try it out.
