Dangerously delicious brownie truffles - Bring them to your next party and people will be begging for the recipe!



  • 15.25 oz brownie mix (1 box, make according to package)
  • 4 oz cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (melted)


  1. Bake brownies according to directions on package. Do NOT over bake. Allow to cool.

  2. Once cooled, scoop out brownies into a large bowl. If the edges are hard leave those out. Add in cream cheese and stir until combined.

  3. Line parchment paper onto a cookie sheet. Then roll your brownie mixture into balls and place on the sheet. Place in freezer for about 30 minutes or until firm.

  4. Melt chocolate in medium sized bowl in the microwave. Then place your truffle ball on a fork and dip into the chocolate. Spoon chocolate on top. Once the ball is covered tap the fork on the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate. Place ball carefully on the parchment paper. You can leave as is or top with sprinkles or crushed candy.

  5. Place pan in freezer until the chocolate hardens. These are best kept in the freezer. Remove about 5 minutes before serving.

  1. glad I am not the only one diving into the chocolate chips when I am having a chocolate craving. I have been also known to make hot chocolate in the summer if I am really desperate.

  2. Wowza! I’m a big fan of Oreo cream cheese truffles, but I’ve never tried them made with brownies instead. I bet they would be the best. Dangerous, even. I’m powerless to resist even frozen cookie dough, much less truffles. . . I’ll definitely have to give them a try. :)

  3. Can’t wait to try this ! I love brownies, cream cheese, and truffles!!!

  4. These look soooo yummy! Can’t wait to try! :)

  5. Yum! Looks delicious!

  6. I am sooo making this!!! TFS!

  7. oh I know those days… (don’t you need chocolate everyday though ??? I do ! I am a complete chocoholic)
    I will definitely have to give this recipe a go
    Thanks for sharing !

  8. I’ve had issues with freezing the oreo truffles because they sweat under the candy shell – do you not have this problem with the brownie ones? or are they not sitting out after being frozen, just eaten as fast as they come out haha

    • I kept mine in the freezer so they would last longer and stay hard, but once I took them out they were fine. It was about an hour. There weren’t left out long though because they were eaten. LOL! I think it really depends on the chocolate too. Hope that helps. They’re super yummy!

  9. These look delicious!

  10. What an easy and great recipe! I’m going to try it today…because I like that I can keep it in the freezer for those chocolate craving moments.

    love truffles and chocolate! how long will these last in the freezer?

  12. Do you use milk chocolate chips or semi sweet?

  13. I tried this recipe and it is great! I added some melted peanut butter to the chocolate for the coating. This, for me, turned out to be better than just the chocolate. Thank you for this recipe. I will definitely use this in the future.

  14. So easy & they looks amazing! I am def. going to have to try these out.

  15. Jamielyn – these look so incredible! I love your photos!

  16. What do you define as a “pan” of brownies? 9×13? 9×9? 8×8?

  17. Wow, these sound amazing. I just made truffles yesterday but really wish I would have found this recipe first. Definitely bookmarking this for next time!!!

  18. This looks delicious. Just one question – what is ‘pan brownies’? Is it a ready-made mix for making brownies? Or do you have a separate recipe for pan brownies? (I’m in the UK, so sorry if it’s a US thing and this questions seems dumb!)

  19. These look absolutely amazing! Thank you for sharing this recipe. I am definitely going to make them

  20. I love brownies, cream cheese, and truffles …i will try soon.. :) :) <3 <3 <3

  21. About how many would you say this makes?

  22. Just tried these today for my Momma for Mother’s Day…. Really easy to make and really Yummy..

  23. I’m wondering the same thing as Shannon above: what size pan of brownies do you use? 13×9, 9×9 or 8×8?

  24. Hi. I had a few questions. Do you use milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips and how long in advance can they be made and how long can they stay in the freezer? Thanks.

  25. Quick questions:
    How many truffles does this recipe yield?
    Do you make the box brownies cake like or fudge like?

    • How many truffles depends on the size you end up making them! If the box has two different instructions, I’d go with the fudge-y recipe, but that’s what I prefer – it will work either way! :)

  26. You saved my Valentines day! Thank you!! :)
