Peppermint Oreo Truffles

I think these may just be better than slutty brownies. I know. It’s crazy. But they will literally rock your world.


Peppermint Oreo Truffles. Holy crap. I can’t even begin to tell you how fast you need to make these. They will change your life. And if you make them for your boyfriend, my guess is he will propose on the spot. And if you make them for your honey since you’re already married, expect really amazing gifts because of the Peppermint Oreo Truffles.

It’s quite simply the best and easiest thing to make on earth. I saw Oreo truffles hit the Internet a few years ago – and then last week I picked up a box of the peppermint Oreo cookies from Trader Joes and went to town. You guys. I ate 10 of these in less than 5 minutes. I couldn’t be stopped. I had to literally send them away to work with Thomas.

Make these immediately. And give them to your friends, family and neighbors. Oh and your boss. You’ll get a raise. You just need peppermint Oreo’s (from Trader Joes), cream cheese and some white and dark chocolate for dipping. See? Easy.

If you can’t find peppermint cookies, you can use regular Oreo’s and throw in a candy cane to give it that minty freshness. The cookies and cream cheese go into a food processor and then less than 1 minute later you’ll have the insides gooey deliciousness that is going to make your truffle. From there, you just roll them into bite sized balls and then dip them in chocolate and sprinkle with a little crushed Oreo. Done. Put them in your mouth and be happy. Trust me on this one. You need to make these immediately.

I give you…. Peppermint Oreo Truffles

Peppermint Oreo Truffles


  • 1 package Trader Joes Candy Cane Joe Joe's - about 16 ounces (or 1 package of regular oreos and 2 candy canes)
  • 1 8oz. package cream cheese (softened)
  • white chocolate
  • dark chocolate


  1. In a food processor, pulse 7 of the whole cookies until they are finely ground. Transfer them to a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Add the remaining cookies to the food processor and pulse for 1 minute until everything is finely ground. Add the cream cheese and pulse until fully combined.
  3. Remove the mixture from the food processor, it should be sticky by this point and roll it into little 1" balls. Place the rolled balls onto a piece of parchment paper. Freeze for 30 minutes to harden.
  4. Melt the white and dark chocolate separately, according to the package directions.
  5. Dip half of the balls in white chocolate and transfer them back to the parchment paper. Repeat this for the remaining balls and the dark chocolate.
  6. Sprinkle the reserved oreo crumbles on top to garnish and then let the chocolate set in the freezer to dry and harden. Once dry, refrigerate the truffles and serve as needed.

  1. These look SO good! I’m headed to Trader Joe’s this weekend and I’ll definitely be picking up their Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s so that I can make these. Thanks, Gaby!!

    1. I am also headed to TJ’s to get some. Question…it looks as though you dipped the entire ball in the chocolate but the recipe says dip 1/2.?

  2. I knew I should have worked up a recipe when I bought those Joe Joe’s a few weeks ago. Those things were pretty dangerous to have around…

    Although in truffle form it probably would have been even worse! They look gorgeous, Gaby.

  3. I’m sorry, but if I even thought of purchasing Peppermint Jo Jo’s and trying to hide them for some wonderful thing like this, my kids would sniff them out and the box would be gone and only crumbs left. Too bad TJ’s isn’t open at midnite when they’re sleeping!!!!

    Sounds delish – going to try tonight!!!

  4. Oh Man! These look absolutely fantastic. I am headed to TJ’s tomorrow and they better still have these. I am already drooling!

  5. Do you refrigerate or freeze the oreo balls before you coat them in chocolate? I tried a few and they all fell apart.

  6. Gaby, I discovered these last holiday season and they were a big, big hit. I also had to get them out of the house as quickly as possible because, after tasting just one, I knew I could finish the entire batch myself in less than 30 minutes.!

    1. Hi Tina! You could form them into the balls and then refrigerate them for 30 minutes so they chill a bit – and then dip them into the chocolate!

  7. I might try again another time. I used about 10 Oreos with the cream cheese, and 8 Oreos for the crumbles. Was that enough?

  8. OMG…made these yesterday…they were out of this world! Even my hubby, who is not a sweet lover, dug these and ask me to put them on the favorite list. Going to add to my holiday baking treat list for the years to come. Thank you so much for this awesome combination!
