These are some heavily addictive cream puffs as they taste so incredibly good. They have the perfect balance of sweet, crunch and softness. They literally melt in your mouth!

What is a Flødeboller?

Flødeboller is Denmark’s version of a Chocolate Tea Cake, only BETTER! They consist of three layers: A biscuit base, a whipped swirl dunked in luscious chocolate.
These delightful little swirls are jam packed with cookies and cream flavour!

Instead of making a homemade biscuit for the base, simple use a Oreo cookie! It work’s an absolute treat!

These swirly Flødeboller treats are among my favourite bake’s to make. They’re not only absolutely delicious, but they’re extremely fun to make! They’d be great for kids to get involved in making.

They have become a very popular bake with my followers and on social media. My Vegan Biscoff and Classic Flødebollers have become some of my most popular recipes (for good reason). Check them out below:


How to make a Vegan Oreo Swirl (Flødeboller)

It all starts off with a base. I used Oreo cookies to base these treats. It makes things super easy, and all very delicious! You can’t beat Oreo’s can you?! – Haha.

The swirl- This cream is highly addictive, with its smoothness! It’s super easy to make and makes for a ultra creamy filling. Add in ground Oreo biscuits to make the cookies and cream flavour explode in these dreamy swirls!

It’s basically a super easy Italian meringue buttercream. I use this as the cream swirl as it’s very light, and gives a really scrumptious ‘cookies and cream’ flavour which isn’t too sweet! It’s the perfect filling for these treats.

Chocolate- It’s not a Flødeboller without dunking the swirl in some luscious chocolate! I opted for dairy-free dark chocolate, but you can use white chocolate if preferred. Why not sprinkle some ground up Oreos while the chocolate coating is still wet? It gives a really fun and unique effect!

Vegan Oreo Swirls (Flødeboller)


How to make quick and easy Vegan Oreo Flødebollers. Great treat for any occasion! 

Watch me make them here.


Units Scale

Ingredients for the base

  • 10 Oreo cookies

Ingredients for the swirl

  • 110g of chickpea brine (aquafaba)
  • 140g of granulated / caster sugar
  • 30ml of water
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar
  • 125g of dairy-free butter or vegan shortening
  • 25g of icing sugar
  • 10 Oreo cookies (ground)

Ingredients for the chocolate coating

  • 140g of dairy-free dark chocolate


Method (base and swirl)

  1. Pour the chickpea brine (aquafaba) into a small saucepan and place onto the hob, over low / medium heat. Allow to reduce to half of the original mixture. Check if you have the right amount by pouring it into a bowl over some scales, you want 55g of reduced aquafaba. Once ready, remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Add 100g of the sugar and all the water into a small saucepan, place onto the hob over medium heat and allow it to simmer/boil. You want the mixture to come up to 116°C (240°F). This will take around 10 minutes. Use a kitchen thermometer to get an accurate reading.
  3. In the meantime, pour the reduced aquafaba into a clean bowl and add in the cream of tartar. Whisk on high for 5-8 minutes until soft peaks form. I use a stand mixer with balloon whisk attachment but an electric hand whisk works great too.
  4. Add in the remaining 40g of sugar, continuing to whisk. After a few minutes, it should turn thick and glossy.
  5. When the sugar syrup has reached it’s temperature, turn down the speed of the mixer, slowly drizzle it into the bowl, turn up the speed again and whip until incorporated. You want to whisk the aquafaba mixture until the sugar syrup has cooled down. The bowl should be cool to the touch. If it’s too hot, the butter will melt when added so keep it whipping until its cool.
  6. Add in the dairy-free butter, little chunks at a time until it’s all in the bowl. Once all the butter has been added the mixture be thick like buttercream, continue to whisk on medium / high for 5 minutes.
  7. Add in the icing sugar and ground Oreo cookies, whisk again on medium / high for another 2 minutes to combine.
  8. Transfer the ‘cookies and cream’ meringue / cream filling into a piping bag fitted with a large round tip nozzle and pipe a high swirl onto each Oreo biscuit.
  9. Place them into the fridge or freezer to set whilst you melt the dairy-free chocolate for the coating. You want them to be firm enough that they don’t slide off the base when dunked into the chocolate.

Method (chocolate)

  1. Add the dairy-free chocolate into a heat proof bowl. Fill a medium sized saucepan 1/4 full with water. Place the saucepan on the hob over low / medium heat, and add the bowl on top. This creates a bain-marie.
  2. Pour the melted chocolate into a glass or bowl, deep enough to dunk the swirls.
  3. Once the chocolate is melted, dunk the Oreo cream into the chocolate. Allow excess to drip off back into the bowl/glass and place on grease proof paper. As the swirls are chilled, the chocolate will set quickly.
  4. Optional- While the chocolate is wet, sprinkle over some crumbled Oreo cookies).
  5. Place into the fridge before serving.


What is aquafaba? Aquafaba is the water from a can/tin of chickpeas. The chickpea water or brine as it’s called, acts as an amazing egg substitute for cakes, cupcakes and delicious meringue buttercream. You can also get aquafaba in a carton for easy use.

What vegan block butter to use? My two favourites are Naturli Vegan Block and flora Plant Based Block.

    Whoa. I’ve been eyeing this recipe for a while, but never really had the energy. Well, yesterday, I did it. I followed the recipe to the T and the end result- still shocked by it. So flavorful, so creamy, so Oreo-y. Absolutely divine and such a delicious treat! If you have the time, highly recommend making this! This ended up making more than 10 cookies for me, but I don’t think my frosting towers were as high…because I’m bad at piping lol but so good! I let mine sit in the freezer after dipping in the chocolate, and then moved it to the fridge, so that it’s soft enough to eat and the cream filling won’t be frozen!
