If you need a simple treat that everyone goes crazy over, it’s OREO BALLS! They’re super easy to make and they taste incredible. You can top them with Oreos and a swirl of chocolate like I do here, or you can be festive and top with holiday sprinkles.

Oreo Balls Recipe with Cream Cheese

Only 3 ingredients for an amazing bite sized, no-bake dessert! All you have to do is crush up the Oreo cookies and mix them with the cream cheese and then shape the mixture into balls. Freeze the balls for about 20 minutes and then dip them in melted chocolate. For this recipe, I chose to use vanilla almond bark, but you could also use regular semi-sweet chocolate if you prefer that.

What’s that 3 pronged fork you use to dip your Oreo Cream Cheese Balls?

The 3 pronged fork I use to dip each Oreo Ball is ahandy Wilton Dipping tool.It’s part of a 3 piece set that make it so incredibly easy to dip candy, or cookie truffles like these, in chocolate.

What chocolate is best for dipping?

When making candy like this I really find thatdipping chocolate just works best. However, you can use chocolate chips instead. I find it works best when you add a small amount – about 1/2 tsp- of shortening or coconut oil to the chocolate chips when you melt them in the microwave.

How do you melt chocolate in the microwave?

Melting chocolate in the microwave is easy if you go slowly. Always use a glass or ceramic bowl and chocolate that’s not old. To melt 1 cup of chocolate chips I’d begin with 1 minute in the microwave. After the 1 minute, let chocolate sit for 2-3 minutes. Then, gently stir and see if chocolate begins to melt smooth. If it’s still really solid, add 20 seconds in the microwave, then let it sit again. Often chocolate looks like it’s not melted when it really is, and you don’t know for sure until you gently stir it. If your chocolate melts but it’s too thick to work with, try adding 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil or shortening, then letting it melt and stirring it in.

Oreo Balls Ingredients

Here’s what you need to make our classic Oreo Balls:

  • 1 package OREO Cookies, finely crushed (15.25 oz. pkg) (reserve 1 cookie for sprinkling on top of completed Oreo Balls)
  • Cream cheese, softened (to soften, you can either let it sit on the countertop for an hour or two, or you can microwave a clean wet cloth for 30 seconds, then wrap the cream cheese in it and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Repeat if necessary, until cream cheese is soft.
  • Melting chocolate, white chocolate and semi-sweet

How to Make Oreo Balls

Here’s how to make Oreo Balls:

Crush the OREO cookies

I used a blender, but you can use a small food processor, or you can place the cookies in a sealed plastic bag and smash them with a meat mallet! I found that the blender worked best when I did half the cookies at a time, rather than trying to crush all 36 at once. Use a fork to stir the mixture up between blends to get the finest consistency.

Combine with Cream Cheese

Mix the crumbs with the cream cheese until well blended.

Scoop Oreo Balls

Use a cookie scoopto measure out about 1.5 TBSP of the cookie mixture and roll each scoop into a ball. Place Oreo balls on a parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheet.

Chill to retain shape

Freeze the balls for about 20-30 minutes before dipping. Don’t skip this step! The balls need to be chilled before you dip them in the melted chocolate. If they aren’t chilled, you will end up with a lot of crumbs in your melting chocolate and they won’t look quite as pretty! You’re welcome to divide the directions into 2 parts and make the truffles the day or night before, then dip them in chocolate the next day.

Dip the Oreo Balls in Chocolate

Melt the candy coating or melting chocolate in the microwave for about 1 minute 20 seconds. Stir gently until smooth, returning to the microwave in 15 second increments, if needed.

Dip each ball in the chocolate and place back on lined pan.

Decorative Toppings for Oreo Cream Cheese Balls

Place 2 TBSP white chocolate in one sandwich bag and 2 TBSP dark chocolate in another. Microwave for 30 seconds. Gently massage the bag. Snip a tiny corner of the bag and drizzle opposite chocolate onto each Oreo ball. Remove cream filling from reserved Oreo cookie.Place cookies in a bag and smash. Sprinkle each Oreo Ball with cookie crumbs.

Oreo Balls with Cream Cheese Recipe FAQ

How do you crush Oreos for Oreo balls?

Oreo Balls work best when the Oreo cookies have been ground fine and uniform. The best way to do this is by using a blender or food processor. If you don’t have one, you can place Oreos in a ziplock bag and pound them with a meat mallet or the bottom of a glass jar. Just make sure to turn the bag over often and pound the other side, to make sure you’ve gotten all the lumps out.

Can you put Oreos in a blender?

Yes, you can put Oreos in a blender! It’s actually my favorite way to make Oreo Balls. It’s super fast and easy, just put the Oreos in the blender, place the lid on and blitz for a few seconds. That’s it!

Can you mail Oreo balls?

Oreo Balls are made with cream cheese, so they should be kept chilled. You can mail Oreo Balls if you place them in a hard container (not glass!) to protect them, and mail them in an insulated container with cold packs.

How long do Oreo balls last in the fridge?

Oreo balls need to be stored in the refrigerator because of the cream cheese in the recipe. Make sure to put them in an airtight container. Oreo balls can be stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.

Can Oreo Balls be frozen?

Oreo balls can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 2 months.
