Definitely the tastiest, possibly the easiest truffles ever made! These Nutella Truffles are made with just 4 ingredients and have a distinct Nutella taste!!
My eleven year old sister recently went to the doctor for her yearly check up and left with a prescription for Nutella.
Andi’s tiny, so tiny some days you think she’s years younger than 11 and you wonder if she might blow away in the breeze, but my siblings and I have all gone through our preteen years scrawny and borderline skeletal.
I used to get picked on by my neighbors for being so small, and I hated it. I’d force myself to eat TWO sandwiches for lunch, and actually complain to my mom about how tiny my arms and especially wrists were (the things you take for granted as a kid…).
My doctor at the time suggested I eat more rice. Andi’s suggested Nutella.
I passed on the rice, but Nutella has without a doubt cured me of any complaints I once had about being “too skinny”, and I’m sure if Andi tackles the jar with as much enthusiasm as I do, it’ll help her, too.
But since man cannot live on Nutella alone, I take any excuse I can to mix it up into something new.
I’ve loved pairing Nutella with Oreos recently here and here, and since I had nearly a whole package left after making my peanut butter pie dessert shooters, I decided to combine them once more in these Nutella Truffles.
I knew that I wanted to use Oreos as a base for these truffles because they’re so incredibly easy and no-fuss to make. Thanks to the Oreos, these Nutella Truffles only use a handful of ingredients (four, to be exact).
Pulverize your Oreos, mix ’em with Nutella and cream cheese, and dip ’em in chocolate.
The Nutella flavor here shines through boldly for a fudgy, rich, chocolate hazelnut treat, all without the guilt of licking Nutella straight off the spoon (for those of us that aren’t actively trying to add on some pounds).
And while we’re on the subject, I’ve always wondered, is the right way to pronounce it “Nuh-tell-a” or “Noo-tell-a”? I’ve heard both and now I’m always worried to say it out loud in case I’m pronouncing it wrong.
Either way, enjoy these Nutella Truffles!!
- 24 Oreo cookies
- ½ cup Nutella (153g)
- 6 ounces cream cheese softened (170g)
- 10 ounces dark chocolate melting wafers (you could also use 2 cups melted semisweet chocolate chips but it will take longer to set and the chocolate doesn't go on as smoothly) (284g)
- Optional: pulverize 3-4 additional Oreo cookies for garnish
- Using a food processor (though you could also do this by crushing the cookies in a Ziploc bag using a rolling pin—just make sure they are crushed very fine), pulse oreos until very fine crumbs.
- In KitchenAid (or in a large bowl using an electric mixer or spoon) stir together cream cheese and Nutella until well-combined.
- Add in cookie crumbs, stirring until well-combined (pause regularly to scrape down sides of bowl).
- Roll into 1 Tbsp-sized balls and place on wax-paper lined cookie sheet (if filling is too messy to roll, refrigerate first for 10-15 minutes).
- Transfer rolled filling to freezer and freeze for 15 minutes.
- Once truffles have chilled, prepare your chocolate by heating it in the microwave according to package instructions.
- Dip truffles in melted chocolate (my preferred technique for this is to balance the truffle on the width of a butter-knife blade, use a spoon to ladle chocolate evenly over the tops and sides, and then use another knife to slide the truffle back onto the wax paper) and return to wax-paper. Immediately after dipping each truffle, sprinkle with crushed Oreo cookies, if desired.
- Return to refrigerator and allow chocolate to harden before serving.
- Keep uneaten truffles refrigerated in an airtight container.

Can we use chocolate oreos?
That should work just fine here. 🙂
Hi what’s the brand you use for the chocolate melting wafers ? I don’t think we have those in Dubai.
I like to use Ghirardeli. I find they provide the best results. You can also use chocolate chips with a little bit of shortening. 🙂
Awesome recipe! I loved it, thanks a lot!!! I am going to try it for a very special occasion. This recipe will help a lot, thanks again!
I hope everyone loves them, Lavanya! 🙂

The combination of cream cheese and nutella gives it a unique flavor.
Keep it up!
I am so glad everyone enjoyed the nutella truffles, Shweta! 🙂

Love, love, love this recipe!! They are so addictive! This is my go to recipe when I bring dessert to a friend’s house and it is always a hit.

The only issue about this recipe is that every time I made them for a group of people they’d want me to make MORE!! Ha! They’re so delicious and always a hit! Thanks for the recipe!
😂 I hate when that happens! I am so glad everyone enjoys them. 🙂
I tried making these at home and they where horrible.
Disappointed to hear that, what was horrible about them, maybe I can help troubleshoot!
I love these! They are always a hug hit!
Quick question… How long can these be stored in the refrigerator?
Hi Dawn! I am so glad you enjoyed them. They will be ok in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. ☺️

Hi, do these truffles use all of the oreo biscuits including the cream. Thanks.
Yup, the whole cookie including the cream 🙂
Looks relish! Will make it real soon! BTW, Thank you for the metric measurement! It’s Deeply appreciated!
I’m glad they are helpful to you, Sharon!! 🙂
Can these be frozen and defrosted for later? I’ve seen other oreo truffles able to be stored in an air tight container in the freezer for 3 – 4 weeks, then let to defrost in the fridge for the night before. Any experience here? Thanks!
I haven’t tried it but think that would be fine. Maybe someone who has tried this can chime in!
I will be making these for my granddaughters 16th birthday party. Her name is also Sam. Bib Nutella and Oreo fan. Thanks.
