Peppermint Oreo Truffles – No bake truffles made from peppermint oreos and topped with white chocolate and a crushed candy canes! These truffles are perfect for the holidays or as a dessert for any party!
Peppermint Oreo Truffles
Oreo truffles are one of those desserts that is a must on my holiday baking list every year. Since they are just a few ingredients and no bake, they are about the easiest thing to make. I think that something about turning an oreo (which is already delicious) into a truffle makes it taste even more incredible. For this version, I simply use peppermint oreos to make them festive and filled with peppermint flavor. Now personally, I coat the truffles in white chocolate because I think it looks more like a classic oreo but you are totally welcome to coat them with chocolate instead or do a mix of some with white chocolate and some with normal chocolate. You can’t go wrong with these truffles!
Common Questions About Making Peppermint Oreo Truffles
What are peppermint oreo truffles?
Peppermint oreo truffles are a simple no bake dessert made by blending peppermint oreos and cream cheese before rolling out balls and covering them with white chocolate and crushed candy canes.
Can I use chocolate instead of white chocolate?
You sure can! You could also roll them in a mix of chocolate and white chocolate or even just drizzle them with chocolate.
Can I freeze the truffles?
Yes, freezing the truffles until you are ready to serve them works great.
What can I decorate peppermint oreo truffles with?
I use crushed candy canes to add more peppermint flavor but sprinkles or a drizzle of a festive color of candy melts or chocolate are great too!
Can I use regular oreos instead?
You sure can! I chose to use peppermint oreos so that I could give the oreos the peppermint flavor I wanted but alternatively, you could just use regualar oreos and some crushed candy canes in the filling.
Where can I get peppermint oreos?
Most grocery stores carry them (or peppermint bark oreos, either works) around the holidays.
What should I do if my truffle filling isn’t forming together?
If your truffles filling (peppermint oreos and cream cheese) is loose and isn’t forming into balls, try adding a bit more cream cheese and blending again. That helps them form together more.
Do you remove the cream when making oreo truffles?
No, leave the cream in those oreos and blend them up! They wouldn’t be oreos without the cream!

Can you use a blender to make oreo truffles?
