What’s better than a Golden Oreo? A Golden Oreo Truffle! These simple, no bake treats are perfect for any party or gathering–dessert has never been this good, and this easy!
GOLDEN OREOS ARE MY FAVORITE.
I discovered them last year and literally am not the same. I mean, don’t get me wrong, the classic Oreo is, well, classic. I am still happy to have my cookies and cream ice cream and anything else with the chocolate goodness, but the Golden Oreos just get me.
It’s amazing what the world of Oreos has turned into. Growing up, we had, well, Oreos. That meant chocolate sandwich cookies and that was it. We had cookies and cream ice cream and if it included the REAL Oreo cookie, then it was extra, EXTRA. Other than that, chocolate cookies with white cream was it.
Nowadays (yes, I am playing my ‘kids these days’ card right now), Oreos come in just about every flavor you can imagine! Carrot Cake Oreos, Lemon Oreos, Peanut Butter Cream Oreos–you name it, I bet it’s out there.
But none of them have made me quite as happy as the Golden Oreos. They are EVERYTHING.
One bite into these white chocolate dipped, cream cheese cookie goodness will have you in a whirl of happy, tasty joy! These are the kind of treats that are even more fun when you get to share–and they are poppable and perfect for just that–well, no one said you HAVE to share them. But surely you will have a lot more friends if you do!
THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS GOLDEN OREO TRUFFLE RECIPE:
- While I suggest the golden Oreos, any sandwich cookie similar to an Oreo should do the trick. I know that Oreos have a lot of flavors out there these days so feel free to play around!
- These can easily be made for any holiday: Valentine’s Day? Red and pink sprinkles for the win! Easter gathering? Pastel sprinkles. Change the color of the sprinkles to literally make these work for any special occasion!
- I love to use the double boiler method when melting chocolate but a microwave can be great as well. Definitely go with your favorite method.
- While the recipe says to stir in the cream cheese, I have used the food processor to mix it in with very little issue. You just have to really break up the cream cheese into pieces and make sure it’S somewhat soft.
Little bites your thing when it comes to snacking and treats? Well look no further– I have got plenty for you as well! Check some of these out!

Golden Oreo Truffles
- 1 14.3 oz. package Golden Oreos
- 1 8 oz. block of cream cheese, softened
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 12 oz. white melting chocolate
- In a food processor, add oreos and process until fine crumbs.
- Transfer to a bowl and add cream cheese (broken up into small pieces) and vanilla. I am going to say use a spoon to combine well but what I really mean is use your hands, hands work best here. Just make sure they are washed.
- Roll into small, bite sized balls. (pop a few while you are at it, these are soooo good!) For best results, freeze for about 10-15 minutes.
- Melt white chocolate using either double boiler method or package instructions. Roll each truffle in chocolate to coat evenly and place on parchment paper. Sprinkle with desired color of sprinkles.
- Repeat with remaining balls and allow to cool and dry before eating--or don't, I certainly couldn't wait! Store in the fridge for up to one week.
