Kraft Kitchen Tips


    To easily coat truffles with melted chocolate, add truffles, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Then, use 2 forks to roll truffles in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove truffles with forks and allow excess chocolate to drip back into bowl before placing truffles in prepared pan.


    Sprinkle truffles with coloured sugar or sprinkles in addition to, or instead of, the cookie crumbs.


    Stir chopped nuts into remaining melted chocolate; spread onto waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm. Break into pieces. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.

Ratings & Reviews



I made these and an assortment of the other cookie balls for treats at work last year and they were a hit. Easy and tasty! Highly recommend!


Delicious! So easy to make and my husband loved them!


Delish! Quick and easy recipe!


Made them once and got requests afterwards to make them for others as gifts! They are a big hit for sure!



Igave this recipe to my friend Linda based on the favourable ratings. She made them and said they were horrible. So I'm deleting it out of my recipe box.


This is an awesome recipe, it's the same recipe as cookie balls from the christmas issue.


Delicious! Tasted just like cheesecake! However, I recommend using less cream cheese than indicated in the recipe as my batch was too mushy/soft to easily form and coat balls. Also I found it very difficult, even after freezing balls, to get a smooth, even, and professional-looking coat of chocolate.


These decadent truffles make you look like a professional! I've made them twice for 2 different crowds, and were praised both times. I also added the cream cheese to the food processor after the cookies were crushed. I like to add a tbsp of shortening to the chocolate for dipping - it makes the chocolate look smoother and shinier, and less melty too.


Very Good...offered these as Christmas presents and my family and friends enjoyed every last one


My sister made these and brought them on Christmas. They are probably the best dessert I've ever tasted! I made myself take the leftovers to someone else's house on Boxing Day, otherwise I would have pigged out and eaten them all! My sister said they were very simple to make.


This is a very easy recipe to follow and they turned out great


I made this with oreo crumbs...not so good. Would not make again :(


These are awesome and easy, made several batches coated in white and dark chocolate for a party-they were a huge hit and looked expensive!


Crushed the cookies using the food processor and when finely crushed, added cubes of cream cheese. Rolled in white chocolate. Very yummy!


An entire pkg of cream cheese was too much for my liking. The cookie balls were much too soft. I use 1/2 if the pkg with 350 g of cookies. I made two batches, one with oreos and one with chocolate chip cookies. They both turned out beatifully and looked like store bought. Delicious!


Completely sinful!


So, we decided to make candies this year, we did the oreos with white chocolate, the peanut butter ones with semi-sweet chocolate and the chips a-hoy ones with milk chocolate, they are great! They are like truffles inside, lots of fun..Did the peanut brittle too...thanks Krsft!!


This recipe was delicious and so easy to make. Brought it to family gathering and it was a great hit.


These are super easy to make and taste amazing!!! I make these only at Christmas and every year people ask "Are you making those Oreo truffles again?"


I may have misunderstood the directions, as I crushed the entire cookie including the filling. I found the result too soft to hold it's shape when dipping in the chocolate, even after freezing overnight. I will try again, with the filling omitted or with less cream cheese. I made these with peanut butter cookies & they were delicious!


I made these for a cookie exchange. They were super easy to mak and a huge hit at the exchange! I crushed the cookies in my food processor then added cut up chunks of cream cheese. Simple and delicious!



Very Easy and Everyone couldn't stop eating them! They were a huge hit!!!


Just made these today, as i need them for a party on Saturday. Had to hide them in the freezer so the rest of the family don't eat them all. Sooo.. easy to make. Made the mix, then put in freezer for an hour, as they were too soft to make balls. Then melted the chocolate. Only needed 8 squares, and added 1 spoon of shortening, as suggested by another reviewer, as the chocolate was too thick, and was running out quickly. Used a toothpick to dip it in chocolate, and another to get the first toothpick out. Used xmas coloured sprinkles on top, and they look amazing. put in freezer, and will take out about 45min before serving. Will make again for sure. soooo.... good!


OMG!! Absolutely wonderful !! These will be my GO TO recipe for now on.....


Melt-in-your-mouth fantastic! Made these last year at Christmas for the kids' teachers. I melted white chocolate chips and drizzled the chocolate on top. And I'm making them again this year!


This recipe is soo..decadent!!! I chilled the dough in the fridge for an hour. The devided means the 1 tablespoon to sprinkle on top of eac truffle. Thanks KRAFT for another amazing recipe.


I will most likely insert a marachino cherry into each ball. These are a hit in my house, and one ball is enough since they are so rich in taste.



Super easy! These are super rich...and quickly give you a chocolate fix. I kept everything in the freezer in between steps. I did everything in the food processor which made it speedy. I used a 1 tablespoon measuring spoon and a knife to pop the semi ball out of the spoon (this made it quick and clean. In under 2 hours I have 6 dozen made, frozen and the kitchen clean. great for baking exchanges :)


These truffles were so easy to make and even easier to eat!!!!


Absolutely LOVE these!! i made them with a bit of a twist though. I used white chocolate instead and they are brilliantly fantastic!! when i was almost out of white chocolate, i dipped them in the semi sweet then rolled them in the other to make them marbled. SO GOOD!


Best ever recipe!


This was so easy to make and they taste amazing!


EASY EASY EASY!!!! oh... and DELICIOUS!!! I made 'em with the Chips Ahoy cookies... next batch with Oreo...


Super easy to make and got rave reviews across the board!!



These were terrific! I will for sure make again, but I will try to put the mixture in a piping bag with large tip and squeeze them out, as they were to messy to roll. I put the cookies into a food processor and chopped them very fine, then put the cream cheese in and blended til smooth. Very creamy.


I made these once with oreo crumbs and bittersweet chocolate. When I made them the second time I used crushed oreos and milk chocolate chips. Made a HUGE difference! Would definitely recommend the second recipe.


Everyone loved these, and asked for the recipe. Definitely messy, but worth the mess!!


Soooo messy to make and ended up using 12 chocolate squares and could have used more... will never make again.


These go over so well at parties. I've had requests to make more of them.



Everyone at work asked for the recipe


What a hit! We made a batch of oreo truffles, but also made another using coconut instead of the oreo and they were super yummy! We also melted choc chips instead of using bakers choc. =)


I want to make this recipe for my boyfriend on valentines day,I was wondering if milk chocolate for the coating would be too rich/ sweet? or should I just stick to the bitter-sweet?


Very messy to make, and WAY too sweet for my liking.


Great recipe!! Really easy to make to! I found if you substitute the oreo cookies for just oreo cookie crumbs and mix it all together it works wonderfully. Also I always hated working with melted chocolate but it wasnt to bad. To dip the balls just stick a tooth pick in the top, and dip it in the chocolate! Also if you leave the toothpick in it makes a great party finger food treat!!


I made these to add to my Holiday candy list. They were super easy to make, a little messy yes, but worth it! I refrigerated the mixture to firm it up and then formed the balls. I then froze the balls for about 30 mins before dipping. I used molding wafers for dipping. These were delicious and a huge hit! I'm going to try the vanilla oreos with white chocolate next.


super easy to do with amazing results - just remember to use better brand chocolate when dipping for a smoother appearance.


Made the recipe and then had to give my "secret" away!!! My great nephew had a not so nice name for them (a teenage no less) but said they tasted really good and proceeded to eat several! I will definetly be making them again.


Yummy! Served with a dollop of whipped cream on top and it was a huge hit!


Way too sickening sweet for my liking. Did not go over well at our Christmas.


VERY EASY!! I made some with white chocolate and some with semi-sweet chocolate. We all prefered the white chocolate. I chilled the dough before forming the balls which helped.


This was a great recipe, you don't really need that much oreo cookies. They do make the batter very rich, so you can always substitute with oreo crumbs. Also, I found that putting the batter in the fridge to let it set helped with forming the truffles. I also put them in the freezer to set before I dipped them in the chocolate. Other than that, great recipe, very quick!


Fantastic!!!!! I did these for the second time today....I did some with white chocolate drizzled with milk chocolate & milk chocolate and drizzled with white chocolate. Very easy & it looks like I spent a lot of time on them and I didn't!!!!


Easy easy easy, and scrummy-yummy!! These are not finished yet but are chilling for dipping... the reviewer who said they taste like oreo cheesecake was SPOT. ON. Decadent and rich BUT they are small so a very sweet treat in just the right portion size. Thank you Kraft for this! (I'm trying another batch but with gingersnap crumbs intead of oreos too).


Tasty! I sprinkled crushed candy canes on the top of mine. They are yummy! I would put a tablespoon of shortening in the melted chocolate next time as it was hard to coat them and have them look as nice as the photo. I can't wait to share them!



They are really yummy but VERY chocolatey! Super easy to make, and they look very impressive if you put some festive red and green sprinkles on top.


I am not a baker, I will cook anything but I always buy desserts. I made these last night for a Christmas potluck and they were amazing!!! So easy and taste delicious! I put red sprinkles on top of mine to make them a little more festive.


OMG.. HEAVEN!! These are so delicious. I made one batch and froze some for the holidays, but we keep digging into the frozen stash. I have to make more now.


These are fantastic! Very easy to make, especially if you have an emulsion blender with a chopping attachment. The cookies were crumbled in no time at all!


The recipe is easy and even those who do not like Oreo's raved about this.


These are amazing!!!! If you want them about the diameter of a toonie I would recommend using 2 bricks of philly instead of just the 1. I am definitely adding this recipe to my go-to list!!


Very easy and tasty! I just used oreo crumbs instead of crushing up a bag of oreos, they seemed to turn out well, my family thought they were great!


Very tasty and easy to make. Would like to clarify recipe asks for "Oreo Cookies" finely crushed, should be Oreo baking crumbs. I used a pastry blender to incorporate crumbs into cream cheese which worked very well.



Made these for work and family...everyone LOVED them! So easy too. Mine didn't look as smooth and round as picture but no one seemed to mind (lol). Also dipped some in white chocolate instead of semi-sweet.


If your a chocolate lover, this one is for you!!!


i think that next time in order to save time that I would buy oreo crumbs


My son made these last year at Christmas and they were excellent and if he can make them alone without any help anyone can make them.


These were a hit! I bought the oreo cookie crumbs instead of crushing the whole cookies. Very, very easy and they taste amazing.


This easy recipe was a hit. Made it with my seven year old son on Monday and they are all gone only two days later.


Simple, rich, delicious! I used a food processor to break cookies, then added cream cheese. Dropped spoonfuls onto wax paper. Refrigerated until a bit firm. Rolled into nicer ball shapes. Dipped in chocolate. Sprinkled with chocolate sprinkles. Could use crushed candy canes, etc.


I loved this recipe it was so quick and easy to make and everyone loved them!


This recipe is wonderful! I have made them twice and there has been none left after our morning coffee break. I am going to make them for our workplace cookie exchange. I was told they look professionally ordered not homemade.


Very Yummy. Big hit with the kids and the adults.



I made this recipe and took it to work. Everyone LOVED it. Will be making it again for my family Christmas dessert exchange. Thanks Kraft



This was a fun recipeand very easy to make. I find that they are better if you add orange extract to them.


Made these for my co-workers~ even the ones who don't eat sweets had "some"!!!


I made this yesterday and was quite disappointed. It's not as tasty as it looks. I followed the recipe to the dot.. the mixture is easy to make but it's quite tough to actually dip the balls into the chocolate and get that smooth shell. (tip.. the 2 forks advice that is given at the bottom of the recipe is not too practical if you actually want a smooth shell).


I thought it was excellent. Simple, tasty. Tasted great frozen.


I made this recipe for the holidays to give away as treats. Everyone at the office thought they were excellent and was sure they took a long time to make. I was absolutely amazed by the texture the crushed cookies and cream cheese, they were like little cheesecake balls. No one believe it was only 2 ingredients for sure! The most time consuming part was the dipping and decorating but it was all certainly worth it. No doubt, I will need to make them again next holiday after them being such a hit!


Recipe is excellent. Time consuming to dip but well worth it. I used all the crumbs in with the cheese and it was fine. The first batch I dipped in milk chocolate. I made a second batch the next day and added chopped marashino cherried and almond extract to the dough. I rolled them and put them in the fridge. I later dipped them in white chocolate and sprinkled with some finely chopped almonds while the chocolate was still wet. Everyone loved both batches but I loved the cherry ones the best.


Very easy to make and delicious!


This is an excellent recipie! I dumped the oreo's into my food processor until a fine crumb, then processed again with the cream cheese. This makes is quite soft but still "rollable", so I rolled them in my hand then placed onto a cookie sheet into the freezer for about 15min. Then I rolled them in the chocolate and popped them in the fridge. Definatly a crowd pleaser. So easy, I made this recipie 3 times in one week for 3 different occasions. **very sweet, so it's not necessary to make the truffles really big, I would recommend the size of a giant gum ball-no bigger**


This was awesome! I almost felt that 3 cups of cookies was too much, I'd reduce it to about 2 1/2c and see what it looks like from there. also add about a tbsp of shorting to your chocolate when you melt it, it thins it out a little bit to make dipping eaiser - doesn't change the taste! YUMMY!
