To make egg-shaped Oreo balls, you will press the truffle mixture into a mold or shape them by hand. Both methods are easy to do and turn this classic Oreo treat into a fun addition to an Easter dessert table.
The egg-shaped truffles are then covered in white chocolate, a drizzle of pink chocolate, and nonpareil sprinkles.
Ingredients for making Egg Shaped OREO Truffles
- OREO cookies – regular or gluten-free Oreo cookies are crushed into fine crumbs as the main ingredient in this recipe. Golden Oreos and Lemon Oreos make a great alternative for a Springtime treat, as long as they have the regular amount of filling. Double-stuffed Oreo cookies will not work with this recipe.
- Cream cheese – softened room temperature cream cheese is mixed with the Oreo cookie crumbs. This enhances the flavor while also helping bind the cookie crumbs into a truffle-like texture
- Chocolate – white chocolate or colorful candy melts are melted to dip the egg-shaped truffles into.
- Optional: melt a different candy-coating color on top to decorate a drizzle over the eggs.
- Sprinkles – nonpareils or Easter-shaped sprinkles decorate the top of the eggs to give them a pop of color.
