An easy, fun, no bake Christmas dessert — these White Chocolate Peppermint Oreo Truffles are only 4 ingredients and are perfect for those holiday baking trays!

So even though I asked my Facebook group about whether they’d like to see a Turtle, Chocolate Mint, or White Chocolate Peppermint dessert up here for the holidays, and the answer was a resounding, “TURTLE!”, I’m here with a White Chocolate Peppermint recipe anyway.

This was my first ever batch of Oreo truffles. I think I’ve only actually eaten one in my life! I mean, until this batch. Because Oreos. And truffles. And white chocolate peppermint! It’s the perfect easy, no fuss Christmas treat you need right now 🙂

It’s not like I don’t have some Turtle flavored goodies coming for you, so now I’m here with one of my favorite holiday combos: mint and chocolate (any kind of chocolate!).

I have to say though, I think my body is happy January is coming.

In November and December, all I want to do is bake. I can’t get enough cookies, candies, bars, desserts…. all of it. But I will definitely be bringing you some healthier recipes come January!

How about you guys? Do you go overboard in the baking department once fall hits? Do you turn over a new leaf for New Years?

*One thing to note with these is that they’re probably not going to be perfectly round. Your chocolate is going to drip a little, your balls may not be perfectly round, and your chocolate may not cover completely — that’s okay! That taste incredible, and that’s what counts.

No Bake White Chocolate Peppermint Oreo Truffles

No bake White Chocolate Peppermint Oreo Truffles are only 4 ingredients and SO easy! Perfect for your Christmas baking.
Prep Time 30 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Total Time 40 mins
Cuisine American
Course Dessert
Servings 24 balls
Calories 125cal

Ingredients

  • 300 grams package Golden Oreos 27 regular sized
  • 2 peppermint candy canes
  • 4 oz 1/2 package cream cheese
  • 226 grams good white chocolate about 1.5 cups, just enough to coat your truffles
  • Garnish: 3 crushed peppermint candy canes

Instructions

  • In a food processor, process Oreos and candy canes until fine crumbs. Add the cream cheese and process until the dough comes together (it will form a large ball).
  • Line a baking sheet with plastic wrap or foil. Roll Oreo mixture into balls and place on the baking sheet. Freeze at least 2 hours or until solid.
  • In a double boiler (a small pot with a glass bowl sitting on top will work just fine, as long as it is far off the bottom of the pot), melt the chocolate: add 1 inch of water in the bottom and bring to a simmer. Place bowl on top and add the chocolate to the bowl. Simmer over low heat, stirring constantly, until white chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Dip Oreo balls in white chocolate, sprinkle with crushed candy canes and set back on baking sheet to set up. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve, or freeze for up to 6 months. (Truffles will be fine out at room temperature for quite some time, but for longer storage I would store in the refrigerator)

Notes

* The number of balls you get will only be dependent on how big you roll them. Mine were about 1″ in diameter.
* Do not add anything to the chocolate while melting it! If you do, it will not firm up and coat the balls. Chocolate melting wafers would also work well.

    These look so great! I can’t wait to try them myself! My daughter is so excited she wants to help with making them! Thank you for posting this recipe

  2. Sharon says

    My sons aren’t fans of vanilla flavored treats. Do you think I can mimic this with chocolate Oreos and dark chocolate for the coating?

  3. Lindsey says

    These are so amazing! They look so yummy and taste even better! Everyone in my family is in love:-) I made them for the first time yesterday but had one small problem. My dipping in the white chocolate did not go so well. I tried tongs first but they left marks. Then I used a spoon to dip but that picked up so much extra chocolate that I didn’t have enough to finish. Any helpful tips to get the nice smooth finish. Thank You!

    • Ashley Fehr says

      Thanks Lindsey! I replied before but it doesn’t look like it worked so I’ll try again! Mine definitely didn’t look perfect. I used a fork to dip and let the excess drain through before placing them on the sheet, but I had to use my finger to slide them off of the fork, so I just place the prettiest side up and sprinkle with lots of candy canes! I hope that helps 🙂

  4. Lee Ann says

    I was just wondering how these are stored? I see where you said you can freeze them, but if I was to make them for Christmas to use this year would they be stored in the fridge or can they be left out at room temperature? I imagine they need to be refrigerated because of the cream cheese, but wanted to make sure.

    • Ashley Fehr says

      Hi Lee Ann! Sorry about the confusion. I’ll be sure to add a note on the recipe. I would definitely store them in the refrigerator because of the cream cheese (and it keeps the coating nice and firm!), but they can be left out on the counter for some time while you’re serving them no problem.

  5. Gina says

    Hi, This recipe is on my list for sure!!! I’m just wondering if it can be made early and frozen? If not, how long do you think it will last refrigerated?

  6. Liz S. says

    This recipe sounds great; and thank you for hosting the giveaway! I’m a little confused though – is there a specific giveaway entry prompt or form? Or is the giveaway entry just to leave a comment? I can’t seem to locate that information – I apologize.

  7. Wendy says

    I’ve read through your blog, & recipe, but I haven’t found anywhere where you say how much peppermint candy, cream cheese, or white chocolate you use. I’ve tried finding the recipe online, but I haven’t been able to find your version of the truffles which sound to me to be just what I’m looking for. I’m looking forward to hearing from you as I am anxious to try these out. They sound YUMMY!!

  8. Marlene says

    Hey Ashley, these look festive and fun! But the recipe is incomplete – there’s only one ingredient, listed twice.. That’s what happens when we eat too many truffles, right? ?

  9. Dorothy Dunton says

    Hi Ashley! I now know what I will make for my son’s girlfriend for her Christmas treat! Thank you and she’ll be thanking you too! 🙂

    So – this might make me sound so depraved – but I had my first Oreo cookball last year and I’ve been obsessed – I use dairy free cream cheese mostly and cannot wait to try this flavor combo – simply adorable – glad you went with this flavor!

  11. ColleenB.~Texas says

    Truffles look wonderful. I haven’t found one that I haven’t liked yet.
    Thank you for this giveaway opportunity
