Oh. My. God. These Oreo Baileys chocolate truffles are EVERYTHING. Gooey, chocolatey, bite-sized truffles from heaven, perfect for St Patty’s Day! I brought a whole tray to a party and not even a single one was left over. And that was well before the night was done. Not going to lie, everyone who I saw take a bite of these immediately closed their eyes in bliss. If those weren’t enough of a clue that these desserts are bomb, everyone seemed to be asking “who made these?!! I need the recipe!” So… YOU. ARE. WELCOME.
The best part is these Oreo truffles are so easy to make. I almost wasn’t going to share the recipe because of how simple they are to prepare. But for how many people asked, I can’t and won’t gatekeep these. And if it’s winter, you’re going to love my peppermint Oreo truffles!
Oreos – this recipe calls for a party size pack of Oreos and that is the perfect amount for a party. You can easily halve this recipe though if you get a smaller pack.
Cream cheese – regular ole cream cheese, room temp. If you don’t have time to let this sit out of the fridge to get to room temperature, you can cut up the block of cream cheese and put it in the microwave for about 15-30 seconds.
Baileys Irish Cream – I made these bad boys for a St Paddy’s day party so of course Baileys was the main ingredient I was looking to use! The taste comes through pretty faint and really just helps add moisture, sweetness, so this is a yummy dessert all year round.
Melted chocolate – To coat the truffles of course. I prefer dark chocolate but you can absolutely use milk or white chocolate if you prefer. You can also switch it up within a batch!
Neutral oil – The oil added to the melted chocolate will help the coating keep slightly soft, and not become rock hard after coating the truffle. We like when the chocolate retains structure and doesn’t just crack off after taking a bite. I use safflower oil, but you can absolutely use canola or coconut oil too!
How to make these Oreo Baileys Chocolate Truffles
- Use a food processor to turn the Oreos into a “flour.”
- Add the cream cheese and Baileys and pulse in the food processor until fully combined. You can use a stand mixer or a spatula here too!
- Roll the dough into balls and pop them into the fridge
- Coat the Oreo Baileys chocolate truffles with the melted dark chocolate and allow to cool before serving!
So here they are: the dessert that will make you the most popular person at the party!
Oreo Baileys Chocolate Truffles
- 1 party-size pack of Oreos 1lb 4oz, or 566g
- 8 oz cream cheese room temperature
- ¼ cup Baileys Irish Cream
- 12 oz dark chocolate melted (milk or white chocolate would work too)
- 3 Tablespoons neutral oil such as safflower, canola, or coconut oil
- Pulse Oreos (cookie and filling) in a food processor until fully blended.
- Mix the room temperature cream cheese with the Oreo crumbs. You can mix it by hand or in a stand mixer.
- While mixing, add in the Baileys until fully combined
- Place a piece parchment paper over a 9 x 13 baking sheet. Scoop out 1 tablespoon of dough at a time and roll into a ball. You can make the balls smaller or larger than this, or have a mix of sizes like I did. Keeps it fun!
- Once the dough is all rolled out, place the baking sheet in the freezer for the balls to take shape. Leave in for about 15 – 20 minutes
- Meanwhile, melt the chocolate. Once melted, add in the oil and stir. (The oil helps the chocolate stay soft and not crack when bitten into).
- Take the truffles out of the freezer. Using two forks, or a spook and a fork, dip one truffle at a time in the chocolate until fully covered, then place back on the rack to dry. Once all truffles have been coated, return to the refrigerator or freezer before serving. If these will be left out at a party I prefer to cool with the freezer.
