Oreo Truffle Reindeer Noses & Printable

The holidays are crazy busy. No matter how much I prepare or shop or do in advance, I am always trying to whip up a gift or a treat or a dish the day of. It.never.fails.

Anyone else?

I still remember the first time I had Oreo truffles. It was a few years back–my mom made them for a party. My mind was blown. They are so unbelievably delicious! The best part is they are so stinking easy. Seriously.


You need a package of Oreos, 8 oz of softened cream cheese and some melting chocolate. For this I used brown and red.

I threw my Oreos in our blender (food processor was broken). What ever works for you–they just need be finely crushed. Then you work the Oreos and cream cheese together. I just used my hands. It was kind of fun. Once I had a nice chocolatey clump I started breaking off bits and rolling it into nice little balls.

I think the truffles hold up to the coating process better if you chill them first.

Heat up the chocolate according to directions. Drop the balls in to coat them and the set them on wax paper to harden. Store in the refrigerator.

These are so yummy and so simple. You can make them super festive with fun colors or sprinkles. I made reindeer noses.


I think these make the best little gift so we have a little printable so they can be packaged with care.


If yours are party food you can still rock the printable.

Hi, I'm Megan--the crazy mom of three behind this blog. Please don't be intimidated by the name. Note it doesn't say BALANCED Home. We hardly have it all together, but together we have it all. Or at least that is what I tell myself. I love rearranging, decorating, creating, crafting, celebrations, family, and holidays. I share a little bit of all of that and more on Balancing Home. I am married to my college sweetheart (Is that a thing? Well now it is.) and he is a very talented designer. I use him for his skills so I can offer up sweet printables to all of you. If you want to learn more randomness about me or my blog, stop by my about page.

    These Reindeer Noses truffles are so cute! I don’t find the link to print label, maybe needs to be refreshed? I am enjoying surfing you site, so clever.

      I completely forgot to add the link!! I’m a little reliant on the hubs for that so hopefully he can help me on his lunch break. I feel like such a dork for forgetting.

    Thanks for sharing this cute idea! I’ve been perusing Pinterest for gift ideas for my hubby’s coworkers and came across your Christmas tree word art printables that I decided were perfect and will frame for them. But I wanted a little treat to go along with it and these are great and such a creative way to package them. Thanks for sharing your talents! I’m so excited that my last minute endeavor for gifts is coming together.
