Oreo Balls

Pin It Print Friendly and PDF
Warning: These are more powerful than self control. Might be a good idea to share them -- with your family, with friends, with strangers... In fact, Oreo balls are a great way to make friends.

Speaking of making friends... may I also suggest Thin Mint Truffles, Pumpkin Cheesecake Truffles, or Carrot Cake Pops?! 

For those of you who are on a more serious diet... don't cry! You don't have to feel left out of the truffle madness! Try these Cake Batter Truffles for only 100 calories... or these Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies (kid tested!) for a fiber-filled treat!

Like this recipe? Would you be a doll and...  Pin It

What You Need:
  • 1 package of Oreos
  • 1 package of softened cream cheese
  • 1 package of white candy coating
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (optional: for drizzling over the oreo balls)
What You Do:

1. Mash the heck out of those Oreos. I double bagged mine and then went to town on it with a mallet. 



2. Mix Oreo crumbs with package of cream cheese.  You'll probably need to use your hands for this one. 


3. Roll into small, 1 1/2 inch thick balls.


4. Melt white candy coating. Using spoons, dip each ball in the melted candy and roll it around until it is covered, then place aside on wax paper to harden.


5. [Optional] Melt chocolate chips and, using a fork, drizzle over oreo balls. Refrigerate to harden.
Note: If the chocolate chips are still chunky after melting, add a teaspoon of vegetable or canola oil and stir to harden.

  6. Oh I make these all the time at Christmas! :) Easiest way to crush the oreos is if you put them in a food processor...works perfect!

  7. Ok, these are also great covered in milk chocolate. You can also switch them up by using mint oreos!
    I also agree with Rhoda, use a food processor!!!! Then you can add your cream cheese to the food processor too!

  8. I make these every Christmas, they have become a tradition. I call them "Oreo Truffles", because, well, I like my family to think I worked a lot harder than I actually did. I add a tsp of vanilla to mine and I also use semi-sweet milk chocolate to coat and white chocolate to drizzle.

  9. You're right -- and if my food processor was functional, I SO would have used it! It's being ornery lately, though. Hasn't worked in a while :( Sadness!

  11. Yum! I made these at Christmas time using the special edition Candy Cane mint Oreos. Heavenly. Yes, they really were THAT good!

  12. Arolling pin works very well for rolling the heck out of those oreos in that baggie. I have been making this recipe for years. Chocolate almond bark is very good too. Usually make some white and dark.

  13. "Oreo Truffles" Sounds so much better than BALLS! But they are delicious! Won me second place in a bake-off a couple years ago. But I added some vanilla extract when I mixed in the cream cheese and white chocolate instead of white candy. Another good recipe is "Samoa truffles". Instead of oreas, you use Samoa girl scout cookies. Happy baking!!

  14. Making them w/Samoa's sounds awesome and now you don't have to wait for the Girl Scouts - Keebler makes a version! Gonna try it!!

Made some at Christmas for our neighbors, and they just LOVED them! Everyone does! .. I like to use white chocolate or vanilla almond bark at Christmas time and sprinkle them with crushed peppermint candy cane. :)

  22. I love these and have made them many, many times. I do always use a food processor to crush the oreos because the texture is just so much better. I find that the white chocolate almond bark works the best, just make sure to take it off the heat as soon as the chocolate starts to melt or it will turn to a frosting type consistency (I know this from experience). I have also used sprinkles to decorate them as well as drizzled chocolate. I have been asked for the recipe more times than I can count.
