Many of the Easter Chocolate Truffles recipes I see make the truffles in an egg shape. You can certainly do that if you want to make Easter egg truffles. I found that making them in a ball was much simpler.

It’s one of my favorite easy recipes because it uses just a few ingredients.

This recipe uses Golden Oreos so that they match the Easter theme. If you use traditional Oreos, you will have a dark center. This would work well with peppermint and dark chocolate for Christmas.

How to make Easter chocolate truffles

  • In a food processor, place Oreos and grind them into fine crumbs. Depending on the size of your food processor, you may need to do this in two batches.
  • Add in room-temperature cream cheese once you have all the crushed cookie crumbs. If cream cheese is not at room temperature, you can microwave it for 20-30 seconds. You want to make sure that the cream cheese is not hot to the touch, or your mixture will come out runny.

  • Combine the crushed cookies with the cream cheese. When the dough comes together in a ball, stop combining.

  • If you are using food coloring, add it at this time. You may need to add food coloring two or three times to achieve the right coloring.

Tips for making Easter Chocolate Truffles recipe

If your chocolate is a muddy color, you have cooked it too long.

If you are using food coloring, add it slowly until you achieve the desired color.

Gel food coloring will make more vibrant colors rather than pastels.

Use a fork or candy dipping tools to dip the Oreo truffles into the chocolate mixture.

Let the excess chocolate drip off before placing the dipped Easter egg Oreo truffles back on the parchment paper.

Make vibrant swirls on the top using piping bags filled with the remaining chocolate dyed different colors.

Be sure to place the Oreo truffles in the fridge for the chocolate to harden completely.

For Easter egg Oreo truffles, you need to use this mold.

For marbled Easter egg truffles, dip them into two different candy coating colors.

Remove from the fridge about 15 minutes before serving so that they are not too hard.

You can store these Oreo truffles in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.

How to decorate truffles like Easter eggs

I love using candy melts and a piping bag to make designs on top of the chocolate. You can also use a toothpick to swirl the colors around.

If you want to add more color to this recipe, mix some colored sugar in a small bowl. Then dip the truffles in the sugar after dipping in the chocolate.
