This is the year food my dreams are being realized ?

I have a large list of recipes that I want to make for our website, and over the last 6 months, I’ve made more of a point of actually making the recipes that have been on my list forever.

So you may have noticed several posts that say “I’ve been meaning to make this recipe for a while and I finally got it done” since I’m rather proud of actually getting it done haha!

One of the recipes that has been on my recipe list for a while has been Oreo truffles. I had never really made them before and I thought it would be so much fun to come up with an allergy friendly version.

Low and behold, the Oreo company just released their gluten free Oreos recently and the timing was perfect. I ordered some from the Walmart website, then right after I got them I found them at our local Albertsons.

I knew exactly what I wanted to make out of the gluten free Oreos: gluten free dairy free Oreo Truffles!

How to make gluten free Oreo truffles

Our allergy friendly Oreo truffles are crazy easy to make. There are a few different versions of Oreo balls out there, but I decided to make ours with SunButter since it’s easier for people to find than dairy free cream cheese, plus SunButter and chocolate taste great together!

We used a food processor for this recipe and I think it gives the best results. If you don’t have a food processor, you can try using a blender or putting the cookies in a bag and crushing with a rolling pin. But a food processor makes this much easier and more consistent.

Here are the steps for making our gluten free and dairy free Oreo truffles (the full recipe card is at the end of the blog post):

  • Place the sandwich cookies in a food processor and process until crumbs form.
  • Add the SunButter to the cookie crumbs and process again until mixed well and everything begins to stick together.
  • Take tablespoonfuls of the mixture and press together and roll into 1-inch balls.
  • Put in the fridge to chill the balls while you melt the chocolate for dipping.
  • Melt the chocolate (whichever kind you choose to use) either in the microwave for 30-60 seconds at a time until melted, or in a double boiler.
  • Using a dipping fork, dip the Oreo truffles into the chocolate and drizzle with more chocolate or add sprinkles on top.
  • Chill until the chocolate is set and store at room temperature in an airtight container once cooled completely and set.

These are quite rich, so you can make these even smaller if you want. We made these about 1 inch in size and they take about 2 bites to eat, but you can make smaller 1-bite truffles with your batch if you’d like.

You can decorate these for just about an party or occasion, like Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, etc. Just add your favorite special sprinkles!

Dairy free white chocolate options

If you’re not sure what kind of dairy free white chocolate is available, here are the ones that I use mostly (these are available in my local stores):

There are a few other brands of dairy free white chocolate, but these 2 are the ones that are more readily available in my stores. I prefer the texture of the Great Value allergy friendly white chocolate chips out of the 2 of them.

We also listed some other dairy free white chocolate options in our post on how to replace dairy in your cooking and baking.

We really like the Nestle Simply Delicious semi-sweet chocolate chips for plain chocolate. They are the best tasting ones we’ve found so far. Our second choice is the Enjoy Life semi-sweet chips.

Gluten free sandwich cookies

We used the new gluten free Oreo cookies in this recipe and we also tested this with the Kinnitoos cookies. But here are some other options for gluten free sandwich cookies if you wanted to try something else instead.

The Oreo brand sandwich cookies and the Kinnitoos don’t have dairy, eggs, or soybean oil or soy flour. But some of the other cookies listed here do have soy, milk, or eggs, so we added notes on those.
