We love Nabisco’s OREO cookies, the delicious chocolate cookie on the outside and the soft creamy center are pretty hard to resist! I love trying new desserts, and making these chocolate OREO truffle balls was on the list. I am not a huge fan of cream cheese, which I have seen in every other OREO truffles recipe, so I thought I would try something else to help hold the crushed OREO cookies together – BUTTER.

Butter is such a magical ingredient, it worked, y’all! I cannot wait to make different holiday themed flavors (check out this white chocolate peppermint OREO balls recipe), you know that they make all different kinds of OREOs – cookie dough, s’mores, cinnamon bun, pumpkin spice, birthday cake, watermelon – the possibilities are endless! All you need is a package of OREO cookies, dark chocolate and butter and you’re on your way to one of the most decadent desserts I’ve had in a while! Here’s how to make no-bake dark chocolate OREO truffle balls without cream cheese, perfect to serve at parties and events!

No bake dark chocolate OREO truffles recipe


  • 1 package Nabisco OREO cookies
  • 1 stick butter, slightly softened (or use a butter substitute)
  • 12 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips, melting dark chocolate, or cocoa chips (non dairy)

You’ll also need:

Crush the OREOS – Remove about 5 cookies from the package and set aside. Place the remaining cookies into your food processor and crush those things!

Add butter – cut up the stick of butter and add to the food processor. Blend until completely mixed.

Making dark chocolate OREO truffle balls without cream cheese, only 3 ingredients!

Roll into balls – Scoop out tablespoon sized balls and form with your hands. Set on parchment paper lined cookie sheet and freeze for about 20 minutes.

Dip OREO truffle balls into melted dark chocolate

Dip in melted chocolate – Melt your chocolate in the microwave or using a double broiler. Using a fork, carefully dip the balls into the melted chocolate, making sure they are completely coated. Place each ball back onto the cookie sheet.

Making dark chocolate dipped OREO truffles balls, sprinkle crushed OREOs on top

Sprinkle crushed cookies on top – Remove cream center from the 5 OREO cookies you set aside and crush the cookies. When all balls are dipped, sprinkle crushed OREOs over the top of the truffle balls and freeze again for another 20 minutes. The result? Rich, chocolaty deliciousness!

  • Hi, can they be left at room temperature for days? Im making it for a festive season thus it cant be kept in a refrigerator.

    • Hi! I made these 3 years ago.
      They were fantastic!
      Yes! You can keep them cold by taking a clear container half- filled with ice cubes, & place the plate that your using for your truffles on top of the ice.

      Have a great time!

  • Hi, thanks for sharing your recipe. How many balls would one recipe yield? I eant to use it as gifts but not sure how much ingredients to get id I’m making 5 dozens.

    • Thanks, you’d have to substitute the butter for a non-dairy one – olive oil based spreads, some margarines, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, etc. Sorry, I should have mentioned that specifically in the post.
