Oreo cookie balls are one of my personal favorite desserts for special occasions. The base recipe I use is the same, and they are so easy to customize by changing the shape of the truffle, the toppings, and the color of the chocolate.

I make a version of these for game days, Christmas, Fall, and New Year’s!

How to Make Easter Oreo Balls

This no bake recipe makes 20 Easter white chocolate truffles and only takes 30 minutes to prepare before chilling. Get the full directions in the recipe card below.

Blend into cookie crumbs. Using a blender or food processor, pulse the oreo cookies into crumbs.

Make the cookie mixture. Add Oreo crumbs to a large mixing bowl. Add in the softened cream cheese, vanilla and salt. Using an electric hand or stand mixer, blend the mixture until smooth.

Prepare baking sheet. Prepare a large baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

Form mixture into balls. Use a small cookie scoop to scoop the cookie mixture from the large bowl and form it into tight, round, smooth balls. Place the balls on the prepared baking sheet and continue until the mixture is gone.

Create egg shapes. Use your fingers to create the small egg-shaped balls. Flatten the ball slightly. Then pinch the top of the ball into a rounded point. Gently pinch the bottom of the ball into a less rounded point (this will be the larger, bottom portion of the egg). Then pinch and shape the top and sides of each ball, refining your egg shape.

Chill the eggs. Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator to chill for 1 hour. Alternatively, you can put them in the freezer for 30 minutes.

Melt candy wafers. Near the end of the chill time, begin to prep your candy wafers. Add all of the wafers to a large bowl. Microwave on 50% power / medium heat for 1 minute. After, stir gently and add shortening to thin the mixture. Return to the microwave and heat on 30-second bursts, stirring in between, until silky smooth. Add more shortening if needed to create a soup-like mixture.

Color the chocolate. Divide the melted chocolate into 4 even bowls. Add food coloring gel to three of the bowls and mix until you have the desired color.

Dip eggs in chocolate. Using two forks or dipping tools, dip each truffle into the melted chocolate, covering completely. Work one truffle at a time, placing it back on the baking sheet after it’s covered.

Top with sprinkles. Immediately top each dip truffle with sprinkles. Drop the sprinkles onto the truffles in a line formation from side to side, creating a decorated Easter Egg look.

Dip, top and repeat. Repeat the process, working one truffle at a time and alternating chocolate colors and sprinkle combinations.

Let chocolate set. Allow the chocolate to set completely.

Enjoy your Easter candy!

Tips for the Best Golden Oreo Truffles

Choose nonpareils sprinkles. Nonpareils sprinkles work best with this recipe.

For best results, do one color at a time. The candy wafers work best when silky smooth, very warm, and soup-like. It’s easier to keep them this way when you are only working with one color at a time, rather than alternating between different colors.

Use 4 sets of tools. If you do alternate between colors, be sure to have 4 dipping tool sets out or 4 sets of forks for each color.

Top with sprinkles immediately. Be sure to top the Easter egg truffles with sprinkles immediately after each truffle is dipped. Do not wait longer than 2-3 minutes.

Use a silicone mat. I love using silicone mats for oreo balls because they are easy to remove. Place your oreo truffles on a silicone mat to chill in the fridge before dipping. Then return the balls to the mat after you dipped them. Once the chocolate sets, they are easy to remove!

Substitutions & Variations

  • Vanilla Almond Bark. You can use vanilla almond bark in place of the candy-melting wafers.
  • Colored candy melts. You can buy colored candy melts instead of dying the chocolate yourself.
  • Different flavored Oreos. Change up the flavor of Oreos. There are so many flavors!
  • Use frosting. You can sub 8 oz of frosting for the cream cheese.

FAQs

How do you store Easter Egg Truffles?

Store the golden oreo truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Do oreo egg truffles need to be refrigerated?

Oreo balls should be kept in the fridge until you serve them. Plus, most people think oreo balls taste best when cold. However, oreo balls can be left at room temperature. According to the FDA, cream cheese can be left at room temperature for up to 2 hours.

Why are my Oreo balls falling apart?

If your Easter oreo balls are falling apart, you may have used too many oreos or too little cream cheese. You can adjust by adding a little more cream cheese to the mixture.

Why are my Oreo truffles so oily?

If your oreo balls become oily, it may be because they have been left out at room temperature for too long, allowing the oils from the cream cheese to seep out. Simply put them back in the refrigerator or freezer to cool for a few minutes.
