Buckeye Oreo Truffles

Combine the rich peanut butter flavor of Buckeyes with the creamy chocolate goodness of Oreo Truffles with these easy Buckeye Oreo Truffles for the holidays!

I like to think that I have pretty sophisticated taste. I’ll eat just about anything and I tend to like the finer things when it comes to food. BUT these Buckeye Oreo Truffles are my weakness.

I remember the first time I had an Oreo “Truffle” I scoffed at the idea shortly before I was in a puddle of deliciousness on the floor. I mean, What’s not to like? It’s like you took an Oreo and soaked it in milk and dipped it in chocolate. YUM. 

My second favorite Pinterest-famous ball is Buckeye candy. I have been making these for YEARS. I used to give them as Christmas gifts or include them in cookie exchanges all the time and they were always a huge hit.

Again, what’s not to like? It’s basically a big ball of Reese’s! My only issue with these is that they can be a bit toooo cloying. Enter: these Buckeye Oreo Truffles. When I had the idea to combine my two favorite basic chick desserts, I couldn’t get to the store fast enough to test them out. Guys. They’re so good.

This no-bake dessert is perfectly peanut buttery (just enough that my peanut butter hating husband was actually obsessed with them), chocolatey, creamy, and sweet. Everything you want in an easy holiday treat. 

Buckeye Oreo Truffle Ingredients & Subs

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Oreos — Can I use original Oreos? You betcha! Will the flavor be slightly less peanut buttery? Yep! But still delicious I’m sure. There is also just a peanut butter Oreo that has the traditional chocolate cookie if you prefer that option but I’m not entirely sure if they’re permanent in the Oreo line or if they were limited edition. 
cream cheese — Plain, brick-style cream cheese, and full-fat. Philadelphia is the way to go.
creamy peanut butter — Put away your all-natural PB for now. We need the classic skippy or jiffy for this job. 
8 oz melting chocolate — You do have options here. If you’re going to use melting wafers, I prefer the Ghiradelli dark chocolate wafers. I prefer these to chocolate chips because chocolate chips are meant to hold their shape in cookies and have added ingredients to ensure that happens. But you can definitely use them if you have to. Bar chocolate is also an amazing option.
colored candy melts, sprinkles, or additional chocolate for decorating

How to Make Oreo Truffles

Place Oreos, cream cheese, and peanut butter in a food processor and process until completely the cookies are completely crushed and the dough begins to ball. You don’t want there to be any chunks of cookie.
Roll mix into 1-inch balls and place on a lined baking sheet. Freeze for at least 15 minutes or until completely firm. This is essential.
Melt 8 oz of chocolate according to package instructions. I like to microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between. Coat the truffles with chocolate and place back on the lined baking sheet.
You can either leave as is, decorate with sprinkles while they’re wet, or pop in the freezer for a second to harden the chocolate and follow up with another drizzle of chocolate or colored candy melts. I prefer these served chilled, but you can serve room temp as well.

 

Hot Tip

If you’re having trouble dipping your Buckeye Oreo Truffles, make sure they are frozen solid. If they’re defrosted at all, they may start to fall apart into your chocolate. Be patient and give yourself plenty of time to dip. And if you’re worried about it, check out this dipping kit

Can I make Oreo Truffles without a food processor?

Totally! I would put the Oreos in a Ziplock bag and crush them thoroughly with a rolling pin or another heavy object. You want very very fine crumbs. I would almost pop them in a blender for a second after that as well. Then mix very well with the cream cheese and peanut butter.
