Ferrero Rocher is nothing compared to this super easy 3-ingredient recipe. A sweet hazelnut coating surrounding a decadent, classic OREO filling. No baking required. Perfect for Valentine’s Day!
One Friday evening, as I was researching on cute cake pops designs on Google in preparation for my baby’s 1st birthday, I came across this super easy no-bake recipe. I couldn’t even believe that this recipe only requires 3 ingredients!
That only means I can do it without damaging kitchen tools or potentially burning the house. FYI, I am not a kitchen-buddy. I consider the kitchen as my enemy. That’s even more insane, right?
However, since I was given a small family to raise, I have been learning some cooking here and there. Eventually, that talent will unfold in the future as I do have a great taste palate.
The no-bake OREO truffles recipe I found on the web only has three ingredients- that is, if you skip the extra topping:
Sure, melted chocolate excites my taste buds. However, I wanted to take it up a notch so I used a hazelnut spread like Nutella as coating instead. Who doesn’t love Nutella?
Since Valentine’s day is coming up, you may want to try this simple, but tasty recipe and give it to a loved one. You can never go wrong with this!
So here’s Nikkah’s version of the OREO truffles recipe:

- Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Place cookies in a food processor or blender. Another alternative, which I used, is placing the cookies in a ziplock bag and using a rolling pin or any hard object to crush the cookies finely.
2. Place the crushed cookies in a large bowl together with the cream cheese bar. Mix until well blended. Roll cookie mixture/ dough into balls and put them in the baking sheet after. I used an ice cream scoop to achieve size consistency. Chill the rolled cookie balls in the freezer for an hour.
3. Transfer Nutella or the hazelnut spread into a microwave-safe bowl and heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds to melt/ liquify it; stir.
4. Remove the balls from the freezer. Using 2 forks, dip and roll each ball into the bowl of hazelnut. Place the coated balls on wax-paper covered baking sheet. Optional: throw in the sprinkles on top. I used a crushed white Toblerone chocolate for this.
5. Put in the freezer until firm for about an hour or so. Once firm, remove the balls from the freezer and transfer it into the paper cupcake liners.
6. Pair it with your favorite coffee drink or give it to your children as snack treats!
