Oreo Truffles are an absolute MUST for my Holiday treat trays every year! I remember my first Christmas with food allergies I was determined to figure out how to make Oreo Truffles (what is life without Oreo truffles, right!?).

Well, gluten free and dairy free chocolate sandwich cookies were one of the first things I found after going gluten free and dairy free and they made life a little easier.

I knew those would work great for this recipe. The cream cheese part was a little more difficult for me that first year. I hadn’t really found a dairy free cream cheese I liked so I decided to just make them with some gluten free and dairy free vanilla frosting.

It worked perfectly! Since then I have found a dairy free cream cheese I like (“Kite Hill” brand) so most of the time I make them with the dairy free cream cheese.

If you aren’t a fan of dairy free cream cheese then just use the frosting like I did that first year. They are AMAZING both ways!

So let’s talk about how you make these delicious dairy free and gluten free “Oreo” Truffles!

DAIRY FREE AND GLUTEN FREE OREO TRUFFLES RECIPE INGREDIENTS:

  • Gluten free and dairy free chocolate sandwich cookies: I use “K-Toos
  • Dairy free cream cheese: I know dairy free cream cheese can be hit or miss for some so if you don’t want to use cream cheese, you can use vanilla or chocolate frosting instead.  If I make these with dairy free cream cheese, I use “Kite Hill” dairy free plain cream cheese.
  • Dairy free chocolate chips: I use “Enjoy Life Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • Coconut or avocado oil: this is optional but helps the chocolate coat the truffles easier
  • Sprinkles for decorating: I love Sweetapolita gluten free and vegan sprinkles

HOW TO MAKE DAIRY FREE AND GLUTEN FREE OREO TRUFFLES:

  1. Crush the Cookies: Add chocolate sandwich cookies to a food processor and pulse until the cookies are a crumb consistency.  If you aren’t using a food processor, you can crush the cookies in a resealable bag using a rolling pin.
  2. Mix in Dairy Free Cream Cheese: Place the cookie crumbs into a large bowl or stand mixer with a paddle attachment.  Beat the cream cheese (or frosting) into the mixture 2 oz at a time until the mixture can be rolled into balls.  This can also be done by hand if your cream cheese is very soft.
  3. Roll Into Balls and Freeze: Use a cookie scoop to scoop out the mixture and roll into balls.  Place the balls onto a sheet tray lined with parchment paper.  Place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  4. Melt Dairy Free Chocolate: Add the chocolate chips and oil to a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second increments stirring each time until they are melted.
  5. Coat Truffles in Chocolate: Dip each truffle into the chocolate mixture and roll gently with a fork to evenly coat.  Use the fork to scoop up the truffle and allow the excess chocolate to drip off into the bowl.  Place the truffle onto the parchment paper and repeat for remaining truffles.
  6. Decorate: Top the truffles with sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet.
  7. Refrigerate and Store: Place in the refrigerator to harden.  Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.  These also freeze really well!

These gluten free and dairy free “Oreo” Truffles are SO decadent and taste incredible! They taste just like traditional Oreo truffles and are perfect for your next Holiday party!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 10.5 oz package (about 18-20) gluten free and dairy free chocolate sandwich cookies (I use “K-Toos“)
  • 24 oz dairy free cream cheese (or 1/2 cup vanilla or chocolate frosting*)
  • 5 oz dairy free chocolate chips (I use “Enjoy Life Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips“)
  • 12 tsp coconut or avocado oil (optional but helps the chocolate coat the truffles easier)
  • Sprinkles for decorating (I love Sweetapolita gluten free and vegan sprinkles)

Instructions

  1. Add chocolate sandwich cookies to a food processor and pulse until the cookies are a crumb consistency.  If you aren’t using a food processor, you can crush the cookies in a resealable bag using a rolling pin.
  2. Place the cookie crumbs into a large bowl or stand mixer with a paddle attachment.  Beat the cream cheese (or frosting) into the mixture 2 oz at a time until the mixture can be rolled into balls.  This can also be done by hand if your cream cheese is very soft.
  3. Use a cookie scoop to scoop out the mixture and roll into balls.  Place the balls onto a sheet tray lined with parchment paper.  Place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and oil to a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second increments stirring each time until they are melted.
  5. Dip each truffle into the chocolate mixture and roll gently with a fork to evenly coat.  Use the fork to scoop up the truffle and allow the excess chocolate to drip off into the bowl.  Place the truffle onto the parchment paper and top with sprinkles immediately.  Repeat for the remaining truffles.
  6. Place in the refrigerator to harden.  Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.  These also freeze really well!

Notes

I know dairy free cream cheese can be hit or miss for some so if you don’t want to use cream cheese, you can use 1/2 cup of vanilla or chocolate frosting instead.  If I make these with dairy free cream cheese, I use “Kite Hill” dairy free plain cream cheese.
