Chocolate Covered Strawberry OREO Heart Truffles

When I think of February (I’m already thinking ahead), I think of love + chocolate and what better way to combine the two than these Chocolate Covered Strawberry OREO Heart Truffles. They are just like the original decadent, diet-busting truffles you love except re-vamped for Valentine’s Day. You could make these and the Homemade Valentine’s Day Mints and your loved one would be very happy :)

First, beat 8 oz. of cream cheese (Strawberry cream cheese would be fitting as well!) Dice up about 1/2 cup fresh strawberries…. or more if you like, and combine the two. Take one whole package of regular OREOS and place them in a ziploc bag and crush. Add those to the cream cheese mixture.

Next, spray a jelly roll pan with cooking spray and spread the OREO mixture smooth about 3/4 an inch. (You don’t need to get all technical here, just eyeball it. However thick you put this in the pan, that’s how thick your hearts are going to be).

Then, place the pan in the freezer for several hours until hard. Meanwhile, melt 16 oz of Almond Bark or Bakers chocolate. Take out the OREO mixture when it’s hard to the touch and use a heart cookie cutter {like these} to cut out the truffles and dip in the melted chocolate to cover.

I have found that the heart truffles are easier to make then the original round balls because it takes much less time to cut out the truffles than it is to roll each ball.

When dipping the hearts, it’s easiest to place the truffle in the melted chocolate with your fingers and then cover it with chocolate using two forks. Use a fork to remove the truffle and tap the fork to remove excess chocolate. Then place the truffle on parchment paper and top with sprinkles. I like to store these in an airtight container in the freezer, but you could also store them in the fridge.

Chocolate Strawberry OREO Truffles for Valentine's Day!

How cute would these truffles be wrapped up in cellophane bags for Valentine’s day treats?! Although I’m going to probably make these year round ;)

Chocolate Covered Strawberry OREO Heart Truffles

8 oz. cream cheese (regular or strawberry)
1/2 cup fresh strawberries, diced
1 package of OREOS
16 oz. Bakers chocolate or Almond Bark
Sprinkles

  1. First, mix the cream cheese and diced strawberries. Transfer the OREOS to a Ziploc bag and crush. Add the crushed OREOS to the cream cheese mixture and spread in one side of a greased jelly roll pan, about 3/4 inch thick. Place the pan in the freezer for a few hours to harden. Once the OREO mixture is hardened, melt the chocolate or almond bark.
  2. Cut out each truffle with a heart cookie cutter and then dip in the melted chocolate with a fork. Be sure to tap off the excess chocolate and transfer the truffle to parchment paper and top with sprinkles if you desire.
  3. Store in an airtight container in the freezer or fridge.

  1. These are ADORABLE and I absolutely love the flavor combinations. Wow!

  2. I think I just gained 5 lbs looking at them…they look so yummy and surprisingly easy!

  3. These sound and look amazing! How beautiful and so easy to make. Thanks for sharing :)

  4. How can you not think about Valentine’s Day when it’s already all over in stores?! I like the idea of these better than rolling into balls and I bet the added strawberries are great (maybe that makes them healthier :) ).

  5. Thanks! I typically only make desserts like this for special occasions, but these took less time than the regular Oreo truffles! I have no patience rolling out twenty little balls :) The heart fabric is actually wrapping paper in the dollar section at Target right now!

  6. Mmmmm – these look fantastic. But I think I would like them more, if someone else made them for me. I just wouldn’t have the patience. ;-) I also really like your photography and the heart fabric. Really cute!

  7. I’m completely ready for Valentine’s Day too. These are adorable and I’m definitely going to make these…..so cute! Thanks for sharing Emily :)

  8. These look and sound delicious Emily! What a great idea!
