Oreo Truffles – An Easy & Perfect Halloween Treat

The grocery store near me is open until midnight.


Do you ever wonder who actually does their grocery shopping at midnight? Yeah… that would be me.

It’s not how I prefer to do it, and not something I do regularly, but honestly, some days are just too much. I literally got the the end of my day and realized that I had nothing to put in my kids sack lunches for the next day, and nothing available for breakfast or dinner either. Not grocery shopping was really just not an option.

I wanted to bake something yummy and fun, too, but what I ended up doing was grabbing a bag of Oreo cookies during my midnight trip to the store, and mixing them up into these quick and easy no-bake truffles.

They’re just as tasty as any other treat, but with only 3 ingredients and no baking, they’re way easier.

Plus they look really cute rolled in Halloween themed sprinkles.

Let me walk you through how easy this is.

The hardest part is making the Oreo crumbs. I used a food processor, but if you have a good blender, that would probably work too. I put a bunch of cookies in the food processor and hit go, and tah-da! I had Oreo crumbs.

Measure out about 2 1/2 cups of these crumbs and mix that with 1 can of sweetened condensed milk. Let that mixtures set in the fridge for 20-30 minutes. Then it will be ready to shape into balls.

I used my favorite cookie scoop to scoop some balls and roll them in sprinkles. Halloween sprinkles, to be precise.

You could also roll them in sugar, coconut, nuts, graham cracker crumbs, peppermint candy pieces, whatever you want.

You’ll be done making these so quick, you’ll have plenty of time to get the grocery shopping done during the day!

  1. These look awesome! I’m going to make them for scary movie night with my friends. I was just wondering how many Oreo truffles this makes?

  2. Do you do this with or without the frosting from the Oreos?

  3. I did it with the frosting. Who wants to take time to remove it? 😉 Also, it doesn’t make a ton, but it will depend on what size you make them. I would estimate I ended up with about 2-3 dozen.

  4. Hi, I’m going to try these for the first time for a bake sale this Saturday, how far in advance can I make them? Thanks!

  5. Do these have to be served from the fridge, or can they be at room temp?

  6. Hi, these look so good! How far ahead of time can you make them?
