Monster Truffles

Monsters, Inc. is one of my all-time favorite movies and these little guys definitely remind me of a monster you’d see from that movie! One big eye and some sprinkles on top — these couldn’t be easier to make! I’ve found the large edible eyes at different grocery stores (usually with cake decorating, sprinkles, or general baking aisle). The candy melts and sprinkles are hit or miss at grocery stores, but I’ve always had luck finding them at crafting stores. Also if you are local to SLC area, you can grab the sprinkles for a great deal at Orson Gygi which is one of my favorite places in SLC to find decorating supplies. They’ve got sprinkles of every color you could imagine.



  • 1 package (16 ounces) regular Oreos
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) Lavender Candy Melts
  • Light purple sprinkles
  • 18-20 Large Edible eyes
  • Optional: vegetable oil you might want to add some to make the candy melts easier to work with


  1. Pulse the full oreos (no need to separate cream from cookie) in a food processor or blender until it is in crumbs.
  2. Using a hand held mixer, beat the Oreos and cream cheese together until well combined.
  3. Roll the mixture into balls.
  4. Chill the balls, covered tightly, for an hour in the fridge.
  5. Once the balls are chilled, melt the candy melts according to package directions. (This is technically another ingredient, but you may need a teaspoon (or a few) of vegetable oil to get the chocolate thin enough to dip in. Every chocolate is a little different so if needed, I’ll just add the oil slowly until it coats the oreo truffles well.)
  6. Place a ball on a fork and then spoon the melted chocolate evenly over the ball. Tap the fork holding the ball to remove excess chocolate.
  7. Slide the ball carefully onto parchment paper and immediately (it hardens quickly) press and hold an edible eye into the center.
  8. Sprinkle the sprinkles on top of the ball.
  9. Allow to dry.
