Where has the time gone?? It’s been two and a half months since I started my new job. I feel like I’ve learned a lot in that time — about my work itself, of course, but also about my workplace and my colleagues. Like for example everyone’s tea drinking habits. And how we’re a ‘biscuit’ office — we’re crazy for our biscuits, and we start getting jittery when the biscuit tin starts looking empty. We’re also a boozy office, but that’s a story for another time…
One of the partners in my office told us about the chocolate truffles his fiancée makes — Oreo chocolate truffles. Why I never thought of trying that recipe myself, I don’t know. Who loves chocolate + Oreos more than me? So I set to work and created a super easy vegan version.
3 ingredients, 20 minutes hands on time, and voilà: creamy, irresistible Oreo chocolate truffles!

‘Nuff talk, more chocolate please.
Oreo Chocolate Truffles
- 300g (10.5) oz dairy-free dark chocolate chips
- 6 tbsp full-fat coconut milk OR coconut cream
- 6 Oreos, crushed to fine powder/pieces
- Smash the Oreos to pieces, either by hand or in a food processor. You want a coarse powder with larger pieces through it.
- Place a heat-proof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Add the chocolate chips and the coconut milk/cream to it and gently let them melt together, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Fold in the Oreo powder, then set aside to cool before placing in the fridge for about an hour to set.
- When the chocolate has set, scoop up a teaspoonful and roll the chocolate into a small truffle size.You could make 15 medium-sized truffles, or 20 smaller ones.
- Store them in the fridge for up to a week – maybe more, but they’ve never lasted that long in my house!
I love making chocolate truffles, so leave me your suggestions in the comments for what kind of chocolate truffle I should make next!
