My Favorite Truffle Recipes!

Every year, there's a fun holiday that we love to celebrate--Truffle Day! I love making homemade truffles, about once a year (similar to how I like to make pies each year at Thanksgiving, but they're so much work, I usually only do it about once a year).



Today I wanted to share my four favorite truffle recipes that I've found and tweaked until they have become everyone's favorites! The flavors are Oreo, peanut butter, lemon, and strawberry.




Oreo Truffles


1 batch homemade Oreos (can use package of store bought Oreos)

1 block of cream cheese, softened

1 bag of chocolate chips, melted

White chocolate, melted


Crumble Oreos into a bowl. Cream cream cheese with Oreo crumbs. Using a tablespoon, spoon out balls onto a cookie sheet with a silicone sheet or parchment paper underneath. Freeze for about 30 minutes.


Melt chocolate chips with a spoonful of coconut oil. Using a fork, cover each ball with chocolate and place back onto silicone sheet. Drizzle white chocolate (melted with a spoonful of coconut oil) over the top of the balls. Place in the fridge to harden.



Homemade Oreos


1 cup butter, softened

1 ⅓ cup sugar (I use evaporated cane juice)

2 large eggs

¼ cup milk

2 cups white wheat flour

1 ¼ cup cocoa powder

2 tsp baking soda

¼ tsp salt


Beat butter, sugar, and eggs together. Combine dry ingredients. Alternate adding flour with milk. Mix until combined. Chill at least 1 hour. Roll into balls.


Bake at 350 for 9-10 minutes.




Lemon Truffles


1 baked lemon cake (from cake mix)*

Juice of one lemon

Zest of one lemon

1 block of cream cheese, softened

1 bag white chocolate chips, melted


Crumble the baked cake into a bowl. Add zest and lemon juice to cake and mix with hands. Add cream cheese and mix until all mixed together. Using a tablespoon, spoon out balls onto a cookie sheet with a silicone sheet or parchment paper underneath. Freeze for about 30 minutes.


Melt white chocolate chips with a spoonful of coconut oil. Using a fork, cover each ball with white chocolate and place back onto silicone sheet. You can color the white chocolate yellow, drizzle with yellow colored white chocolate, or sprinkle with yellow sprinkles. Place in the fridge to harden.

Strawberry Truffles

1 baked strawberry cake (from cake mix)

½ cup frozen strawberries

1 block cream cheese


Crumble the baked bake into a bowl. Reheat frozen strawberries in microwave and mash them with a potato masher. Combine cake crumbs and strawberries. Add cream cheese and mix until smooth. Using a tablespoon, spoon out balls onto a cookie sheet with a silicone sheet or parchment paper underneath. Freeze for about 30 minutes.


Melt chocolate chips with a spoonful of coconut oil. Using a fork, cover each ball with chocolate and place back onto silicone sheet. Drizzle white chocolate with pink food coloring (melted with a spoonful of coconut oil) over the top of the balls. Place in the fridge to harden.




Peanut Butter Truffles


2 cups natural peanut butter, creamy

3 - 3 ½ cups powdered sugar

¼ cup butter, softened

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 tbsp milk

Chocolate chips, melted


Mix peanut butter, butter, and sugar. Add milk and vanilla. Mix until creamy. Using a tablespoon, spoon out balls onto a cookie sheet with a silicone sheet or parchment paper underneath. Freeze for about 30 minutes.


Melt chocolate chips with a spoonful of coconut oil. Using a fork, cover each ball with chocolate and place back onto silicone sheet. Put crushed nuts over the top while chocolate is still melted. Place in the fridge to harden.
