As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I got a little (ok, a lot) photo-happy with these little Easter Egg Oreo Truffles. So today you’re getting a second post with our second round of truffle decorating using a slightly different filling — Golden Oreos!
That’s right! This batch is made with a simple 2-ingredient filling using cream cheese and the super-sweet, goldenlicious, why-didn’t-they-think-of-those-decades-ago cousin of the traditional Oreo. (Which I secretly love more than traditional Oreos — I know.) Then on the outside, my friend Meg and I dipped these babies in white almond bark and then drizzled on some pastel-colored almond bark for decor. I mean, I loved the brown and white version we posted yesterday. But you can’t have Easter Eggs in life with a little pastel. So for all of you who like color, this idea may be for you.
Oh, and just like yesterday’s batch, these babies only take simple ingredients to make (plus food coloring). Pretty egg-celent if you ask me. Here’s how to make ’em!
We begin with the rockstar ingredient of this batch: Golden Oreos.
Pop them all in a food processor and pulse until blended. (Or if you don’t have a food processor, just pop them in a large ziplock bag and pound/mash the heck out of them until they are crumbled.
Add in cream cheese, and pulse/mash until the mixture is combined and smooth.
Then form the mixture into small egg shapes. (You might need to pop the mixture in the fridge/freezer first to harden so that it’s a little easier to work with.)
Then place them back in the fridge/freezer again until they are completely hardened.
Meanwhile, melt half of your almond bark in the microwave or a double boiler until smooth.
(*You can also use white chocolate, but almond bark is way easier to work with and doesn’t not burn as easily.*)
Use a fork or spoon to dip the eggs in the melted almond bark until they are completely covered. Then lay them out to dry on a parchment-covered baking sheet. Once the eggs are all coated, pop that baking sheet back in the fridge/freezer one more time so that the chocolate can harden.
Then melt your remaining almond bark and color it with gel food coloring. I do not recommend drop/liquid food coloring for this recipe, as anything water-based can make melted chocolate seize and harden. Plus, the gel food coloring is much more concentrated.
At this point, you can either just drizzle the colored chocolate on top of the eggs with a fork. Or you can do what I did and transfer it to pastry bags for easy piping. I just snipped the ends off the pastry bags for this project, but you could also use your desired piping tips.
Then comes the fun part — decorate those eggs!!!
I think I’ve decorated Easter Eggs every single year of my life. So I’d had a little practice. But the sky is the limit on whatever designs and colors sound fun to you!
The name of the game is just to have fun with it. And make a big mess in the process and turn your hands all sorts of colors, because that’s what you do with Easter eggs, right? :)
These 4-Ingredient Easter Egg (Golden) Oreo Truffles are so fun to make, and filled with that creamy Oreo truffle mixture we all love!
1 package Golden Oreos
1 (8 oz.) brick cream cheese, softened
1 lb. white almond bark, divided and melted (*see note below)
gel food coloring
Add the Oreos to a food processor, and pulse until evenly crumbled. Add the cream cheese and pulse until the mixture is smooth and well-blended, stopping to scrape down the sides of the food processor once or twice if needed.
(If you don’t have a food processor, you can crush the Oreos in a large ziplock bag, and then stir/mix in the cream cheese by hand.)
Use a 1/4-cup ice cream scoop to portion the dough into 1/4-cup balls. Then roll by hand into egg shapes. Place the eggs on parchement-lined baking sheets, and chill in the refrigerator (or freezer) until hardened.
Once the eggs have chilled, carefully heat half of the almond bark in a microwave or double-boiler until melted and smooth. (*If the almond bark is too thick, add in a few teaspoons or shortening or coconut oil to thin.) Dip the egg in the melted almond bark, and roll around until it is evenly coated. Transfer the egg to another parchement-lined baking sheet and let cool. Repeat with remaining eggs. Then transfer to the refrigerator once more to cool until the chocolate has hardened.
Divide the remaining almond bark into separate bowls (for however many colors you wish to use), then stir in your food coloring until the almond bark reaches your desired shade. Either drizzle the colored almond bark on the eggs with a fork or use a piping bag to pipe the almond bark on in your desired design.
Serve immediately or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 1 week.
(I made a double batch for the photos, which I highly recommend doing.)
I didn’t think there was any way I could like these more than the two-tone truffles….but I LOVE them! These are so cute!
I love this idea! So easy, pretty and festive.
So pretty! I love the colors you made. Do they taste a lot like almonds?
I might make these but use the new Lemon Oreo’s they are so yummy!
What!? That is such a good idea! I didn’t even know they sold lemon oreos! I’m going to have to keep an eye out for them down here in the ATL!
hope you can find them! They are the best oreos ever! going to stock up since I believe they are seasonal only. :(
I love how you decorated these. So pretty and festive! I’ve been making Oreo truffles for years, but I’ve never used the Golden ones. I think I’ll be making these to put in a few Easter baskets.
This is such a great idea! I love how simple yet decorative this recipe is! You make me want to take out my pipping bags and start decorating! :D
Cheers for Easter fun! With a little cream cheese as you mention, they sound DELICIOUS!
These are almost too pretty to eat! Almost! I love your use of golden oreos! I secretly like them better than the original too! These are absolutely perfect for Easter! Pinned!
Ali! Once again, these are so adorable! I have to say they are even cuter in the pastel version! This is a fun treat that I can make with my nieces and nephews for Easter!

What about using half a plastic Easter egg to mold them??
Ooh, that could work!
Ohhh these sound amazing and look too darn cute! :)
These are so pretty!!
The truffles are beautiful! I love the colors you used to decorate them! I am definitely going to have to try this recipe! We featured this recipe for our Feature Friday post for 2- ‘Egg’stra Special Easter Desserts! Here is the link: https://returntothetable.net/recipes/20-eggstra-special-easter-desserts/ I hope you can stop by!
Hi. This is the first thing on pinterest I have ever tried to copy and I am disappointed that even though you claim “only 4 ingredients” you chose one ingredient that is impossible to find! I cannot find almond bark anywhere, in fact I went to two different Whole Foods and they have never carried it, and Trader Joes didn’t know what it was or what it was used for. Sadly I don’t get to try and make this recipe.
Sorry about that. It’s widely available in most other stores. You can use white chocolate chips as a replacement. They can just be a little trickier to melt — totally doable, but they burn easier, so just keep an eye on them. And if the chocolate is too thick, thin it out with some shortening.
Beware of the Waltons gel coloring, the first ingredient is water, I would recommend using a paste.
I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’ve made the chocolate ones for Christmas and it is always the first plate to be emptied
THEY LOOK SO YUMMY. I’m going to try to make them for Easter.
These are amazing, so cute and fun!!!
These and the dark ones look absolutely divine!! I was wondering which package size for the oreos you used? There is a wide variety of packaging anymore and I want the ratios to right. I want to make these tomorrow to take in to my husbands work tomorrow or Thursday. Lol and of course have some here at home!
Hi Ali! Can you please tell me which gel coloring you used? Are Wiltons “icing colors” ok? I also found drop gel colors from Wilton but you mention not to use drop coloring? Thanks!
Hi Ali :)
I made these last night with my siblings (who are triplets!). We had a lot of fun and they turned out great! I used regular oreos on the interior instead of golden oreos and they were delicious! You can see my pic at @ceilidhsmith on instagram. Have a great holiday!
Thanks! I’m so glad you guys had fun making them, and that you enjoyed them! Hope your day was lovely. : )
I LOVE this idea. I’ve made Oreo truffles in the past, and they were a huge hit, but these are a much, much cuter alternative to the traditional truffle. Also – love the idea of doing the golden Oreos! I’ll definitely be referencing this when I make my next batch.

Thanks Josh, I hope you enjoy them!
P.S. Love your blog — I love Kentucky!
Is Golden Oreos available now, if so where can I purchase them…
They should be, at most regular grocery stores.
You have a typo on the directions for the 4 ingredient golden eggs. “Baking” not ” backing” sheet.
Oooh my goodness, thanks for letting us know, we just fixed it! :)
Hello, how are you? I had feature your delicious recipe in my blog (www.myhousetucasa.com/en) , I hope you don’t mind. Have a nice day!
Wow! I absolutely loved the way that you have added so many beautiful pictures, it ust look so Yummy:)
About how many eggs does one batch make? Making for a picnic and don’t want to have too few, but also don’t want leftovers. They look perfect for an Easter picnic!
