Easy & Delicious, 3 Ingredient, Oreo Truffles. Vegan, Gluten free & Nut free.

One of the things that I love about allergy-free baking is the challenge. I enjoy taking a recipe that is known and loved and turn it into a treat that my son, and others that share his allergies can have. I also love being able to hear my friends rave over something and then hear their shock when I tell them it’s vegan.

Like Vegan Oreo Truffles.

Did you notice in the title it says “Oreos”?  Oreo cookies are vegan, which means they are free of dairy and eggs as well as any other animal products. Now don’t mistake vegan for healthy, however, it won’t kill my kid, and so in that terms, it’s healthy enough.  (I used regular Oreos, but read the labels, because some DO contain milk and may be in a facility that also produces peanut products).

Oreo Truffles go back a long time; I couldn’t even tell you where it originated from or who gets credit for the original recipe. You may have seen them served on a platter at a party or may have even tasted one (or 3) before. Basically, it’s crushed Oreos, mixed with cream cheese then coated in chocolate or candy coating. Tastes amazing, but absolutely NOT what you want to hand anyone with food allergies or certain restrictions. Here’s where I come in…. making this something you now CAN eat.

Oreo Truffles with only 3 ingredients.

  • Chocolate Sandwich Cookie –  Oreos OR make this Gluten-Free by using KinniToos version
  • Cream Cheese- Tofutti Brand is yummy but Daiya Cream Cheese is completely Top 8 Free
  • Chocolate Chips – Enjoy Life brand or allergy-friendly chocolate chips of choice

And a few easy steps

  • In a food processor, pulse cookies into a fine crumble (like you’d crush graham crackers when making a crust).
  • Stir in the softened cream cheese using a sturdy spatula.
  • Roll dough into 1” balls and place on wax paper covered sheet.  (You may need to freeze 10 minutes before moving to the next step).

You’re almost done making your Oreo Truffles

  • Melt chocolate in 30 seconds intervals until nice and smooth. I like to add a teaspoon of coconut oil just to keep the chocolate nice and shiny.
  • Dip cookie balls into the chocolate, tap off excess chocolate and set aside on a wax paper covered cookie sheet. Decorate with sprinkles, crushed peppermint or edible glitter …because who doesn’t love glitter?
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.

      Laura, I actually have a recipe for SunButter Cups (and you can use PB if you prefer) but those turned out wonderful. It’s an older post so the pics aren’t as pretty but they sure are delicious.

      We make them GF for friends, so I it is nice having that flexibility. Thanks for the note of Ktoos. We just have to avoid eggs as well, so sometimes that’s hard to find something that fits all the allergens.

    Hi! I really want to make these as gifts, do you think I could freeze them until Sunday/Monday without them getting weird? Or do you know how long they will keep for?

    • Nicole Dawson

      They will last for at least 2 weeks if refrigerated. At least that is how long mine have lasted since I made a huge batch and hide the extras in the back :). Freezing them would be another great idea, just refrigerate the day you’ll be serving to let thaw without getting melty.
