Easter Egg Truffles
While traditional truffles are made with a chocolate ganache mixture these Easter Oreo balls are a bit different and could not be any simpler to make. They are made of a mixture of crushed Oreo cookies and cream cheese which gives them a sweet, creamy, rich, filling that practically melts on your tongue. These colorful truffles are sure to become an instant household favorite.
Why you should make Easter Oreo Balls
These easy Oreo truffles have so many great reasons to make them but here are a few of our favorites:
- You can use ANY flavor of Oreo cookies. Don’t feel obligated to stick with regular Oreos or golden Oreos because you can honestly choose any of their flavor varieties (and they have a lot of options!) Some great choices for Spring include strawberry, lemon, or carrot cake-flavored Oreos.
- This recipe is easy enough to get the kids involved. Place a few chairs around the tables and divide the tasks amongst the kiddos to make this recipe a family experience. They will love everything from sampling the filling to decorating the eggs.
- They come together really easily. The steps are as simple as crushing cookies, blending ingredients, rolling into balls, and dipping into melted chocolate. No “hard work” is required because electric mixers, microwaves, and a food processor do most of the legwork.
Easter Oreo Balls Ingredients
Cream cheese: You will need 8 ounces of softened cream cheese for this recipe. This is what will give us a creamy rich center in every one of the Easter Oreo truffles.
Oreo cookies: Use one standard size (19.1 ounces) package of Oreo cookies. Any flavor variety will work great for this recipe.
Chocolate: You can use a package of almond bark (white or chocolate flavor) or you can use a package of colored candy melts. You can even use a combination of the two and make some pretty unique designs.
Sprinkles: You will want to add some fun and festive Easter-themed sprinkles over your chocolate-dipped truffles to help celebrate the holiday.
How to Make Easter Egg Oreo Balls
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, make sure this sheet will fit easily into your freezer as that is a future step in this recipe.
Begin by add your Oreo cookies to a food processor and pulse until the cookies are finely crushed into sand-like crumbs. The finer the crumbs the better, so try to avoid leaving larger chunks behind.
Then, combine the Oreo crumbs and cream cheese in a large mixing bowl and blend together with an electric hand mixer until the mixture is fully combined.
After that, use a 1 ½ tablespoon-sized scoop to portion out the filling and roll them into little balls. Roll them until they are smooth looking and then gently adjust the shape to look more like an egg.
Next, place your egg-shaped truffles onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Repeat until all eggs have been shaped.
Then, place the baking sheet into the freezer for about 30 minutes to harden.
Melt your chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second increments in the microwave, stirring between each until smooth.
Now, using 2 forks, dip each egg into the chocolate and gently shake off any excess chocolate back into the bowl.
Place the chocolate-dipped eggs back onto the sheet of parchment paper and then immediately add your festive sprinkles to the top of each egg. The eggs are chilled so the chocolate will set quickly so the sprinkle application should not be delayed for too long.
Repeat until all of the eggs have been covered with chocolate and sprinkles.
Then, allow the eggs to rest until the chocolate has set.
Serve and enjoy!
How to Make Oreo Balls Without a Food Processor
You can still make these delicious white chocolate Oreo truffles even if you do not have a food processor handy but it will require a little more effort on your part. Simply place the cookies into a large Ziploc bag and place it onto a hard surface or counter. Use a rolling pin to roll over the cookies until they are finely crushed. Then use as directed.

How long are Easter Egg Oreo Truffles good for?
These truffles can keep well for up to 3 weeks if kept stored in an airtight container in the fridge. This should give you plenty of time to make them in advance for any holiday party or to enjoy the leftovers for weeks to come.
Can I Freeze Easter Oreo Truffles?
Yes, these truffles can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months and they taste really good while still frozen. Do note that your chocolate will sweat as they thaw to room temperature and your sprinkle colors may run and bleed due to the excess moisture. This is normal and to be expected.
Decorating Ideas for Easter Egg Candy
You can dip your eggs in a solid color like white almond bark or melted chocolate and then drizzle colorful melted candy melts over the top. Additional decorations besides sprinkles would include cookie crumbs or sanding sugar. You can make your own sanding sugar by mixing regular sugar (about 1 cup) with a drop (or less) of food coloring until well blended in the hue you’re looking for.
