These fun Oreo Easter egg truffles are a quick and easy 3-ingredient dessert that is perfect for any Easter celebration! They’re simple to make and fun to decorate, a great way to get the entire family involved!
Ever since I made my Christmas Oreo truffles, I’ve been totally addicted.
So I thought it would be fun to make some Oreo Easter eggs for the upcoming Easter holiday.
These taste just as good as the Christmas ones but they’re even cuter because they look like decorated Easter eggs.
Plus, they’re really fun to decorate. The last time we did this as one of our Easter activities and the kids all helped decorate their own!
These also make a great Easter gift! They would be perfect in these fun DIY Encanto Easter baskets I shared this week! Just do colors that match the designs of the baskets!
Or hand them out as party favors. Or have them as the treat at the end of this Easter scavenger hunt.
There are really so many ways to use them, so let’s get to the actual recipe!
Why You’ll Love This Recipe
- Simple – with just three real ingredients, these are easy as they get. Easy enough that kids can help – just make sure they don’t touch the candy melts when they’re really hot!
- No-bake recipe – you do need to freeze these for 30 minutes to make them easier to dip BUT they’re still no-bake, which means you can have them done in under an hour!
- Colorful – you can switch the colors, decorations, and garnishes on these to whatever you want them to be. It’s like dyeing Easter eggs – get creative!
- Candy melts – you can use any colors you want, I just like using Easter colors! Also, I don’t have a preference on brand, anything that’ll melt works great!
- White chocolate – you can either use white almond bark, white chocolate, or even just white candy melts. Or skip the white all together and just go with colors – I just think the white brightens everything up!
- Sprinkles – any sprinkles that are easy to eat are great on these – confetti sprinkles, nonpareils, jimmies, Easter sprinkles.
- Cream cheese – make sure your cream cheese is nice and soft. I also recommend the full fat cream cheese to get the creamiest Oreo truffles possible!
- Oreos – Use regular Oreos, not double-stuff, and not flavored. The mint ones work well in these Grinch Oreo balls, but I would stick with just regular Oreos for these!
How to make Oreo Easter Egg Truffles
These are seriously the easiest treat ever. You can see how easy in this fun viral TikTok video showing me making a set for my boys!
First, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Then it’s time to start the actual truffles. Put the Oreos into a food processor and pulse until you get them to a crumb consistency, no big pieces left.
Then combine the Oreo crumbs with the softened cream cheese (it has to be soft) in a large bowl with either a hand or stand mixer. This will take a few minutes – you want to make sure it’s completely combined and moldable before and it’ll take a few minute to really come together.
Use a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop a ball of the Oreo mixture. You can also just use a tablespoon and over fill it – I just prefer the ease of a cookie scoop.
Roll it into a ball then gently shape it into an egg shape with your hands. You can either do a flat back or a rounded back like an egg – either works.
And let’s be honest, these are going to be cute and look like eggs even if your egg shapes aren’t perfect. These will get eaten.
Place the the eggs on the prepared baking sheet and freeze for 30 minutes.
While the eggs are chilling, melt one color of the candy melts in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir, then repeat in 30 second increments until it is fully melted and smooth.
Now use two forks or a tool like this candy dipper to dip each egg into the melted candy melts. Allow any excess to drip off before placing it back on the parchment paper.
If you’re not drizzling with additional candy melts, top with sprinkles before the coating sets.
Do one color at at time so the candy melts don’t harden during the dipping process. Repeat melting candy melts and dipping for each different color until all eggs are coated.
Finish them off by drizzling the tops of the eggs with different colors of melted candy melts and adding additional sprinkles as desired.
You can get as creative as you want here, just like if you were decorating regular Easter eggs!
Once the candy melts have harden on the outside (they harden within minutes), these are ready to enjoy! I mean how good do these look?? Plus, they’re so pretty on the outside – the perfect combination!
Store any leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container since there is unbaked cream cheese inside of these.
Try these with different flavor Oreos to get a slightly different flavored inside!
Put the cookies in a zip lock bag and use a rolling pin to finely crush them if you don’t have a food processor. Or you can just buy Oreo crumbs here.
Double this recipe by simply using two packs of Oreos and two packs of cream cheese. You may need to use a larger bowl, but it works great doubled!
Oreo truffles are made of Oreo crumbs and cream cheese then coated with either melted chocolate, candy melts, or almond bark.
Oreo truffles can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three weeks in an airtight container. You can also freeze them for two months either before or after they’ve been dipped.
Oreo truffles made with cream cheese should be refrigerated because they contain raw cream cheese, which should be stored in the refrigerator.
