Gluten Free Oreo Truffles
Last year, my cousin’s girlfriend brought Oreo Truffles to a family party. But alas, they were not gluten-free so my husband couldn’t enjoy them while we all raved about them. We weren’t trying to rub it in; they’re just so darn delicious you just can’t help yourself by proclaiming it every 3 seconds.
I felt really bad because he was definitely feeling like he was missing out on something good (he was). So, these Gluten Free Oreo Truffles were born. And if I didn’t tell you, you’d never know the difference.
These Gluten Free Oreo Truffles have a soft, gooey and decadent chocolate interior. It’s creamy, smooth and everything you want a truffle to be.
The chocolate coating is optional, but definitely recommended. Alternatively, you can roll the truffles in more crushed chocolate cookie crumbs. I think the chocolate coating makes them a little bit more special, especially if you’re making these for holiday gifts or to bring or serve at a party.
While there aren’t actual gluten free Oreos from Nabisco, there are several other brands of gluten free chocolate sandwich cookies that are readily available. I use Glutino cookies but Wal-Mart has recently released their Great Value brand of gluten-free products, including chocolate sandwich cookies. You can use whatever brand you prefer.
I make a lot of cookies and fudge every year as Christmas gifts for family and friends and every year I make chocolate covered Oreos because they are one of everyone’s favorites. This year I’m going to switch it up and make these gluten free Oreo truffles instead.
I’m pretty sure nobody will miss the old version because these are just so much better.They’re also fairly easy to make so these truffles should be right at the top of your Christmas cookie list this year! And when I say easy, I mean really easy.
There’s no baking or cooking involved, which is nice because I feel like my oven is on 24/7 during the month of December. I use a food processor to crush the cookies and to mix in the cream cheese and scoop the mixture onto parchment lined baking sheets right from the food processor bowl.
Dipping the truffles into the chocolate is really the only ‘work’ that goes into these. Just make sure your truffles are very cold when dipping. It’ll be much easier to coat them.
And a little tip if you’re having trouble with your chocolate being too thick to dip: add a tablespoon of vegetable shortening to help give it a better/thinner consistency.
Whether you make these gluten-free truffles to give as gifts or as a special dessert to accompany your holiday spread, I guarantee they will be a hit. Enjoy!

- 36 Gluten Free Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
- 8 ounces Cream Cheese, Room temperature
- 12 ounces White Chocolate Chips, or Dark Chocolate Chips
- Gluten Free Sprinkles, For decorating (optional)
- Add the chocolate sandwich cookies to a food processor and pulse until all the cookies are crushed into crumbs. Cut the cream cheese into the crumbs and pulse until completely combined. The consistency will be like mud.
- Scoop the mixture into balls about 2 inches big and drop onto a parchment or silicon mat lined cookie sheet. They should be about the size of a ping pong ball. I used a medium cookie scoop filled 2/3 of the way and got 18 truffles.
- Freeze for 15 minutes. Once the truffle balls are cold, roll into round balls and freeze for an additional 10 minutes.
- While the truffle balls are in the freezer, melt the white chocolate or candy melts according to package directions.
- Use a fork to dip the truffle balls into the melted chocolate and place on a clean piece of parchment paper.
- Garnish with sprinkles immediately. Repeat for the remaining truffles. Refrigerate at least 10 minutes or until ready to serve.
- Store the gluten-free Oreo truffles in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. They can also be frozen.
