I’m about to make a big statement…
If you try one thing from my blog this year, try these Oreo raspberry truffles. There. I said it.
Big statement right? But it’s so true!!
These oreo raspberry truffles have graced many a lip during their testing phase, and there wasn’t a single person that ate them that didn’t fall head over heels in love!
And this is perfect timing, too, because well… the season of love is upon us! And these Oreo Truffles with Raspberry are the perfect sweet end to a sweet night with your sweetie.
When I asked my boyfriend how he felt about these Oreo truffles, he responded: “I ate them and I felt just straight up… happy.”
Okay, okay that ain’t half bad, people! If you want to make your hunny feel just straight up happy on Valentine’s Day, perhaps these truffles are the way to go 😉
What Exactly are these Oreo Truffles?
Basically just four ingredients that combine to make heaven. Oreos grind into crumbs and then combine with cream cheese to make a delicious and soft filling. This filling rolls into balls with a single raspberry in the center and then dip in melted chocolate.
Biting into these truffles is magnificent. The first bite is rich and sweet and creamy. Just when you’re wondering if it might be a teense too sweet, you’re hit with a wonderfully tangy taste of fresh raspberry. It’s perfect!

Put your oreos in a food processor and pulse until small crumbs are formed.
Add softened cream cheese into the food processor and pulse again. A creamy mixture will form. It will be slightly soft, but that’s okay!
Take a small amount of the mixture and flatten it in your hand. Place a raspberry in the center of the flattened disk and form a ball around the raspberry. The ball should be slightly smaller than a golf ball.
Lay each of the balls on a cookie sheet and place in the fridge for about an hour.
Create a double boiler on your stove. To do this, place a pot on the stove filled with water. Bring the water to a boil. Then place a glass bowl over the pot, so that the heat from the water in the pot touches the bottom half of the glass.
Add the chocolate chips into the glass bowl and allow them to melt all the way.
Remove the truffle balls from the fridge and use two forks to turn the balls in the chocolate until they are fully coated.
Lay a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet and place each chocolate-coated ball on the wax paper. Allow to chill for another hour in the fridge before enjoying.
How to Dip Oreo Truffles in Chocolate
Dipping the truffles in chocolate can be a bit difficult if you don’t know the right method!
To dip my truffles in chocolate, I first plop the truffle down into the chocolate. Then I use two forks to turn the truffle to make sure that the entire outside is coated in chocolate.
When all of the truffle is covered in chocolate, I use the forks to lift it out and allow any excess chocolate to drip off.
Using Your Instant Pot to Dip Your Truffles
Using your Instant Pot to melt your chocolate is so easy! Choose a bowl that is slightly larger than the rim of your Instant Pot. The bottom of the bowl should fit slightly inside the instant pot. The rim of the bowl should be slightly larger than the rim of the pot so that your bowl doesn’t fall inside.
Fill the Instant Pot with water, but make sure that it’s not so full that the water is touching the bottom of your glass bowl. Fill the bowl with chocolate chips.
Turn your Instant Pot to the NORMAL Saute setting. This will bring the water to a boil. Stir the chocolate in the bowl occasionally until it melts completely. It should take about 5-10 minutes.
Once your chocolate is melted fully, hit the CANCEL button to turn off the Saute feature. Then hit “KEEP WARM”. This will keep your chocolate melty for as long as you need! Dip the truffles according to the above tips.
Can Oreo Truffles be Made Ahead of Time?
Yes! In fact, I would recommend it. Your truffles will need a few periods of resting time before enjoying. If you’d like to make them a day in advance, they will be perfectly edible the next day. Making your Oreo truffles ahead of time will give them enough time to harden before you eat them.
Plus, in my opinion, these truffles get better with time. The first day that you eat them, the raspberries are perfect and whole in the middle of the truffles. But, as the days go on, the raspberries begin to form a jelly-like consistency in the middle of the truffle. It is DE-LISH-IOUS!
How Long are Oreo Truffles Good For?
Because these Oreo truffles have fresh fruit in the middle, I wouldn’t keep them for more than 4 days. As I mentioned before, the longer the raspberries are in the center of the truffles, the more they break down every day.
This is delicious because it makes a sweet, wonderful jelly in the middle of the chocolate. However, you don’t want to keep them for so long that they go bad. 4 days would be the max for me before I threw these out.
Do Oreo Truffles Need to be Refrigerated?
Yes! These Oreo truffles have cream cheese as a main ingredient. For safety purposes, they should always be kept refrigerated. The same is true of the fruit in the middle… it will stay fresh longer when kept in the fridge.
Keeping your truffles in the fridge means that the chocolate on the outside is very hard.
If you’d like the chocolate to soften a bit before serving the truffles, you can leave them at room temperature for about an hour. This is enough time to soften the chocolate, but not so long that the cream cheese will go bad.
