These EASY Gluten-Free Oreo Truffles are a perfect addition to your holiday cookie platter or anytime you want a sweet treat (hello Game Day or any holiday or event)! They are only 3 ingredients, No Bake and fun to make + eat!
So excited to finally add this Gluten-free Oreo Truffles recipe to the website!
This may not seem like a big deal because it is a classic recipe but this is our first time making them as we can finally purchase GLUTEN-FREE Oreos! (more below)
It is a super EASY gluten-free cookie recipe (just 3 ingredients + no bake) and so yummy!
A perfect addition to a gluten-free holiday cookie platter!
And you can make them extra festive with colored sprinkles or some white chocolate drizzle.
A little background…
I was first introduced to Oreo Truffles a few years ago at a holiday brunch/ cookie exchange. I look forward to this party hosted by a friend each year… it is always a good time and while cookies are rarely gluten-free (other than the ones I brought obviously), I love the opportunity to look for new cookie ideas!
Each year one friend showed up with Oreo Truffles and each year I enjoyed a few (remember I don’t have to eat gluten-free, my son has celiac disease so I choose to eat gluten-free in support of him at home and when I am out with him, but on an occasion like this, I will try other dishes or cookies!)
When she told me how simple they are to make, I knew I wanted to try them as soon as Oreo launched a gluten-free version! So here it is!
I don’t know the origins of the recipe and online there are hundreds, mostly the same. So this our version, based on my friend’s recipe, quantities adapted for gluten-free Oreos.
So let’s make them!
All you need 3 Ingredients for the truffles:
1 package (13.9oz) Gluten-Free Oreos
cream cheese and
chocolate chips (we used semi-sweet, you could use dark as well)
and for optional toppings:
white chocolate chips or a white chocolate bar, and
A few notes about Gluten-Free Oreos…
First, they are really yummy and taste exactly like the original oreo in our opinion!
The gluten-free package contains less oreos than the original oreos… this is often the case with gluten-free items.
And, this is a fun one… the gluten-free oreos actually say “gluten-free” on the cookie! So if you are ever somewhere where they are being served and you aren’t sure they are gluten-free, just look at the cookie!
The truffles comes together super quickly!
All you do is:
Place all the cookies in a food processor and pulse until they are cookie crumbs. Don’t have a food processor, place them in a ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
Add softened cream cheese to the crumbs and pulse until a truffle batter forms. If you don’t have a food processor, you can do this step with a stand or hand mixer.
Roll into balls and freeze for 15 mins!
While the truffles freeze (this step is important otherwise they will become a mess when you dip in chocolate), melt chocolate, (preferably using a double boiler – amazon affiliate link).
As an aside, we love our double boiler!
It is the best way to melt chocolate in our opinion as the chocolate stays smooth and doesn’t seize. If you have the kitchen space to store it, it is worth it, especially if you make a lot of recipes calling for melting chocolate.
Then all you do dip the cooled truffles in the chocolate, making sure they are fully covered.
If you decide to decorate with sprinkles, place the spinkles on after the chocolate has started to set but it still warm so that they sprinkles stick. If you put them on while the chocolate is super warm, the will melt into the chocolate.
If you are adding a white chocolate drizzle, let the truffles set fully, then add the drizzle.
Either way, they are festive, fun and yummy!
Sure to be a hit whether part of a holiday cookie tray, served in their bowl or gifted to a lucky friend!
And they are not just for the holidays!
These gluten-free Oreo Truffles can be decorated with any color sprinkles making them perfect for Game Day, anyholiday (we love our Valentine’s Day sprinkles!) or event!
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper* and set aside. (*I place all the truffles on one 1/2 size baking sheet, approximately 9.5 x 15 inches for freezing the truffles; but use 2 smaller or 1 full size baking sheet to place them once dipped in chocolate so they have space to cool and set)
Place all the Oreos in a food processor* and pulse until they become cookie crumbs (Note: this is the entire Oreo - cookie and cream)
Add the softened cream cheese and pulse until well combined.*
Using a tablespoon, scoop out batter and roll into approximately 1 inch balls. Set on the prepared baking sheet.
Place truffles in the freezer for 15 minutes.
While truffles freeze, melt the chocolate, using a double boiler ideally as it melts the chocolate evenly and keeps it warm and smooth.
After 15 minutes, remove truffles from freezer and one at a time, dip in the chocolate using a spoon or fork, make sure they are fully coated and let any excess drip off. Place back on a baking sheet to set.
Optional toppings: If using sprinkles, add while chocolate is still slightly warm. If adding a white chocolate drizzle, melt the white chocolate while the truffles set completely, then drizzle with white chocolate.
Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator for a week. They can be left out for a few hours for serving but because of the cream cheese, store in the refrigerator.
If you don't have a food processor,
place the Oreos in a large ziploc bag and crush them using a rolling pin,
then combine the Oreo cookie crumbs and cream cheese in a mixing bowl using a stand or hand mixer.
