Gluten-free Vegan Oreo Truffles with paleo and Keto options! EASY, no-bake, 3-ingredients.

It doesn’t get any easier than these no-bake Gluten-free Vegan Oreo Truffles! A makeover of one of our all time favorites, with a gluten-free and dairy-free twist. They used to be a go-to and I literally taught classes on how to make this delicious, fancy, yet EASY dessert.

Why We Love These Gluten-free Vegan Oreo Truffles

First, they are SO easy! No baking involved. Simply mix in a food processor, roll and dip. Even my friends who don’t like to bake find these approachable!

Plus, they only use three ingredients! Cream cheese, cookies, and melted chocolate. See the Ingredients section below for my favorite products and how to make them fit your dietary needs.

Additionally, they are super flexible based on your dietary needs. Want a Paleo option? I’ve got you covered! Or, need a low-carb Keto option? We’ve got that too!

Finally, they freeze wonderfully and ship great! Make ahead and stick in the freezer for any big event or holiday on the horizon.

I also ship these all the time to friends and family. When I gift them or ship them, I put 3 truffles in mini cupcake wrappers and then put them in these candy boxes from Amazon. See below – the perfect fit! Looks beautiful but is budget-friendly.

Ingredients

  • Chocolate Sandwich Cookies – For just a gluten-free and vegan option, use Gluten-free Oreos, which you can find at Walmart, Target, or Winco. Grab the regular ones, not the double stuffed. If you need Paleo, use Simple Mills Crunchy Cocoa Sandwich Cookies for simple grain-free ingredients (Note: You will need two boxes of Simple Mills cookies to make a full batch). Or, for Keto, use a low-carb cookie like Catalina Crunch (vegan but not gluten-free).
  • Dairy-free Cream Cheese – I love using Violife, as it’s also nut-free. But if you need a cream cheese with Paleo ingredients, use Kitehill Cream Cheese, which is Whole30 Approved (but is nut-based). Both of these brands have the best flavor, IMO.

  • Chocolate chips or white chocolate chips – My go-to brand for Dairy-free chocolate chips is Enjoy Life. I prefer the White Chocolate, as it pairs best with the already very chocolatey Oreo center. But, I can only find the dairy-free Enjoy Life White Chocolate on Amazon, and it’s cheapest in bulk. Or, use a semi-sweet or milk chocolate chip that works for you. Enjoy Life semi-sweet chips can be found at Walmart and Target. For a Paleo option, use Hu Chocolate Chips (cheapest at natural food stores like Whole Foods or Sprouts).
  • Mint or Peppermint Extract (Optional) – Love mint? You can drop some mint or peppermint extract into these to rock a minty version!

Dipping Tips

Dipping things in chocolate sounds simple but can sometimes be frustrating. Here are some tips for dipping these Peppermint Oreo Truffles from someone who has done it thousands of times.

  1. First, the chocolate consistency should be thin and smooth. If you burn chocolate, it gets thick and lumpy, and there’s no going back. For most consistent results, melt your chocolate on low heat on the stove instead of the microwave. If the chocolate isn’t burned but is still too thick, you can add 1-2 tablespoons melted coconut oil to thin it out.
  2. Second, make sure the truffles are frozen solid before dipping. This allows them to dip into the hot chocolate without falling apart or sliding off the toothpick.Peppermint Oreo Truffles - Gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, vegan. EASY and always a hit! Freezer friendly.
  3. Thrid, use the toothpick method (above). Many people use two forks when dipping. Which works, but is finicky IMO. I just insert a toothpick into each frozen truffle and dip them into the melted chocolate. Once the chocolate is cooled and solid, then remove the toothpick and cover the hole with a dab of leftover melted chocolate with the back of a spoon or clean finger.Peppermint Oreo Truffles - Gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, vegan. EASY and always a hit! Freezer friendly.
  4. Finally, use the cup method. (below) Once the chocolate is melted, I line a mug with a sandwich-sized ziplock bag (see below!). Pour the melted chocolate into the bag. This creates a nice deep well to dip your truffles into. Plus, when you are done dipping, you can use the leftover chocolate to create decorative squiggles on top.

Ingredients
 

  • 30 gluten-free, dairy-free chocolate sandwich cookies *see notes
  • 4 oz dairy-free cream cheese we love Violife or Kitehill
  • 1 10oz package dairy-free chocolate or white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon mint or peppermint extract optional

Instructions
 

  • Pulse cookies in a food processor until just crumbs. Add cream cheese, cut into smaller cubes, and extract (if using) in the food processor. Pulse until mixture is combined and forms a large ball. Mixture should not be crumbly and hold together, but not be too sticky to form into balls. See notes if not the case.
  • Form small balls of cookie mixture (*a great part to let kids help with!) and place them on a tray sprayed with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Freeze until hard, 30 min-hour.
  • Remove from freezer. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave or on the stove. Dip each frozen cookie ball in the melted chocolate and place back on tray. We make this process easier by stabbing each frozen ball with a toothpick for dipping, then removing once placed on tray and covering up the hole with a small dab of melted chocolate.
  • Repeat with all frozen cookie balls. Top with decorative chocolate, nuts, or melted chocolate squiggles. Store in the freezer or fridge.

Notes

*If using Gluten-free Oreos, use 1 full package of regular-stuffed Gluten-free Oreos.
To make these Paleo: Use Simple Mills chocolate sandwich cookies. You will need 2 boxes.
If you have mixed the cream cheese and crumbs in the food processor and it's dry, add a little more cream cheese. If it's too moist (not clumping into a non-sticky ball), add more cookie crumbs.

    These are honestly SO decadent – everything a truffle should be! Creamy, soft, sweet, and incredibly satisfying. Autumn obviously spent time to get the recipe just right, like she does with everything she posts.

  7. Yum yum yum!! I can’t even describe how delicious these are (you just have to try them)! Can’t wait to make these for family and friends. They give the wow factor in both taste and design. I’m already imagining all the holiday-themed versions we can make and gift, if they make it out of my kitchen.

    I’m not an Oreo person. Or a truffle person. Or much of a dessert person, to be honest (don’t @ me). But these truffles are a household favorite. They’re the perfect bite-size, my son LOVES them, and they’re so easy to make, even with my lackluster baking skills. (Because there’s no baking!) These are a must-make for your next gathering, dinner party, or kid’s playdate… or for no reason at all, because for me, they’re always worth it.
