Recipe Hints & FAQ

Should I use full fat or light cream cheese?

Full fat cream cheese works best in this recipe. If you’re planning to freeze the cheesecake balls, then full fat cream cheese is recommended.

Do I need to chill the mixture?

If the mixture is too soft to roll into balls, place it into the fridge for 20 minutes and then roll into balls. Place the balls onto a flat tray and place back in the fridge for 20 minutes before dipping into the melted chocolate. Chilling the balls makes it far easier to coat in chocolate.

What kind of chocolate should I use for melting?

You can use any type of chocolate you like! I generally use milk or dark chocolate, but you can use white chocolate if you prefer. Check out my tips for melting chocolate in the microwave here. 

How long will Oreo balls last?

You can store Oreo balls in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. They can also be frozen for up to 1 month.

Can I use something other than Oreos in this recipe?

Absolutely! You can substitute the Oreos for any other chocolate cookie (if you’re in Australia, Tim Tams are a great substitute!). 

What’s the easiest way to crush the Oreos?

The easiest way to crush the Oreos is to use a food processor or a Thermomix. Alternatively, you can place the Oreos into a plastic bag and crush using a rolling pin.

What’s the best way to coat the Oreo Truffles in the melted chocolate?

Melt the chocolate and allow to cool slightly. Use 2 small spoons or 2 forks and gently dip the balls into the chocolate. Move the ball between the two spoons to allow the excess chocolate to drip off. Place the chocolate coated balls onto a baking paper covered tray. You can cut off any excess chocolate from around the balls once the chocolate has set.

Serving Oreo Truffles
