Truffle Treats

As a college freshman, I’ve experienced the infuriating annoyance of being equipped with only a fridge and microwave. As a result, I’ve become quite an experienced “no-bake chef.” There are a number of oven-free recipes in circulation, and while some of them are awful, this Oreo Truffle recipe is quick, easy, and delicious!

Oreo Truffles
(adapted from Kraft foods)


1 package of Oreos (the “Double Stuff” work best)
1 8-oz. block of cream cheese
1 12-oz. bag white chocolate chips


Crush the whole bag of Oreos until finely crumbled. Mix Oreo crumbs and block of cream cheese together into a well-blended paste. Roll the mixture into marble-sized balls, and place in the freezer to harden. Meanwhile, melt a bag of Chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl (I used white chocolate, but dark and milk work well too!)

After 5 or 10 minutes, take the semi-hardened balls out of the freezer and quickly dunk into the melted chocolate. For decoration, sprinkle some of the remaining Oreo crumbs on top of the truffles, and place back in the freezer for a few minutes to harden.

This recipe should yield roughly 40-50 truffles, depending on their size.
