These tasty little truffles look fancy, but they come together quickly and only require a few simple ingredients. They have a rich and creamy center, satisfying chocolate coating, and can be decorated so many different ways!

Though I typically make these during the Christmas season, you can definitely customize these for absolutely any holiday. Use orange and black chocolate melts for festive Halloween truffles. Or use red, white, and blue candy melts for the Fourth of July.

The possibilities are endless!

It’s very easy to make Oreo balls gluten-free. Just wap regular Oreos for gluten-free Oreos, and you’re in business.

Ingredients You’ll Need

Gluten-free Oreo truffle ingredients on a countertop
  • Gluten-free Oreos: Remember to buy gluten-free Oreo cookies to keep this recipe gluten-free. Regular gluten-free Oreos are best (not double stuff). Learn more about gluten-free Oreos.
  • Chocolate: Use high quality chocolate baking bars (like Ghirardelli or Guittard) for dipping these gluten-free Oreo truffles. It makes all the difference in the flavor! I prefer a mix of semi-sweet chocolate and white chocolate, but you could also use dark chocolate or milk chocolate. Baking bars work better than chocolate chips in this recipe.
  • Oil: You can use vegetable oil or coconut oil for these truffle balls. Don’t use olive oil or an oil with a strong flavor.
  • Cream cheese: Full-fat block cream cheese is best for these cookie balls. (I don’t recommend fat free cream cheese or cream cheese substitutes.) Soften to room temperature for best results.

How to Make Gluten-Free Oreo Balls

Make the Oreo Balls: Place the gluten-free Oreos in a food processor. Pulse until they are fine crumbs. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer and large bowl, beat the room temperature cream cheese until smooth, about 1 minute. Add the Oreo cookie crumbs and mix until well combined.

Shape the Balls: Using a Tablespoon or small cookie scoop, scoop out a spoonful of the mixture (about 18–22g each) and, using your hands, roll into a ball. Place the gluten-free Oreo truffles on plate or cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper or wax paper. Freeze the Oreo cream cheese balls for 15 minutes. 

Melt the Chocolate: Place the semi-sweet chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl or 2-cup measuring cup and the white chocolate in another. Melt in 20-second increments on 50% power, stirring between intervals until melted and smooth (or melt in a double boiler on the stovetop).

Dip in Chocolate: Let the warm chocolate sit for 5 minutes to slightly cool before dipping, otherwise it will melt the shaped gluten-free Oreo truffles. Remove the gluten-free Oreo balls from the freezer and dip the balls into the melted chocolate. I like to use this chocolate dipping tool! Dip half of the balls in the semi-sweet chocolate and half in the white chocolate.

Decorate! Place the dipped Oreo truffle balls in a single layer back on the parchment-lined baking sheet or plate. (A wire rack works, too.) Decorate with a drizzle of chocolate, additional crushed Oreos, sprinkles or crushed peppermint, if desired. Place the baking sheet with the Oreo balls in the refrigerator and chill for at least an hour.

Storage Instructions

Gluten-free Oreo truffles will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. You can also freeze the balls for up to 2 months. Keep stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
