Peppermint Oreo Truffles

  • Prep Time: 10
  • Total Time: 10
  • Yield: 20 1x



  • 2 sleeves of regular Oreos 
  • 6 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup crushed candy canes


  1. In a food processor, pulse Oreos to a fine powder. Add cream cheese, peppermint extract, and salt and pulse until everything is fully incorporated. Do not over mix.
  2. Scoop a rounded spoonful of the mixture into your hand and roll into a ball. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. In a microwave-save bowl, melt the chocolate and vegetable oil in the microwave in 20 second increments until melted.
  4. One at a time, place a truffle onto a large fork and carefully dip in the melted chocolate. Coat the truffles completely, shake off any excess chocolate, and transfer back to the parchment lined baking sheet.
  5. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes or peppermint candies and place back in fridge until fully hardened, about 30 minutes.
