And you really can’t go wrong with a 3-ingredient no-bake treat, especially during the busy holiday season! They are almost too easy to make…and for sure too easy to eat:)
How to Make Oreo Balls
Oreo balls are fun, easy to make, and will remind you of a chocolate truffle, but instead of a chocolate filling, you get a rich, decadent Oreo cream cheese filling. Oreo truffles are insanely delicious! Here are a few tips for making the perfect Oreo truffles.
- Use the whole Oreo cookie, crisp chocolate cookie and white filling.
- Place the cookies in a food processor and pulse until you have small cookie crumbs. Make sure there are no big cookie pieces.
- Make sure your cream cheese is soft. If it is too cold, it won’t mix into the Oreo crumbs easily.
- Use a mixer to combine the Oreo crumbs and cream cheese. I like to use my stand mixer, but a hand mixer works well too.
- Roll the Oreo cream cheese mixture into small balls and place on a baking sheet or tray that has been lined with parchment paper or wax paper. Freeze the balls for 15 minutes. You MUST freeze them so you can dip them in chocolate. If you don’t, you will have a mess.
- Melt the chocolate wafers in the microwave in a small microwave safe bowl. Follow the instructions on the package. You can also melt the chocolate using a double boiler on the stovetop. You can use candy coating or almond bark too. Chocolate chips don’t work as well because you want a thicker coating to cover the Oreo balls. I like to do a mix of chocolate and white chocolate. You can do just one chocolate if you wish.
- Dip the balls into the melted chocolate, making sure the balls are completely covered. I like to use a fork to lift them out of the chocolate, then I shake from side to side to remove the excess chocolate.
- Place the Oreo balls back on the lined baking sheet or tray. You can decorate the tops with a drizzle of extra chocolate, crushed Oreos, sprinkles, crushed peppermint, or chopped nuts. Or you can leave them plain!
- When they are all dipped and decorated, place the baking sheet or tray in the refrigerator and chill for at least an hour.
How to Store
Make sure you store the Oreo balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator. If you leave them on the counter, the chocolate will get soft. You want to make sure they are chilled until ready to serve.
The Oreo balls will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. You can also freeze the Oreo balls for up to 2 months. If you are going to stack the Oreo balls, make sure you put parchment paper or wax paper in between the balls.

- 38 Oreo cookies
- 8 oz cream cheese at room temperature
- 1 cup chocolate melting wafers or candy coating
- 1 cup white chocolate melting wafers or candy coating
- For decorating: melted chocolate, Oreo crumbs, sprinkles, crushed peppermint, or chopped nuts, if desired
- Place Oreo cookies in a food processor. Pulse until they are fine cookie crumbs.
- Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until it is smooth, about 1 minute. Add the Oreo cookie crumbs and mix until well combined.
- Roll the Oreo mixture into small balls and place on a baking sheet or tray that has been lined with parchment paper or wax paper. Freeze the Oreo balls for 15 minutes.
- Place the chocolate wafers (or candy coating) in a small microwave safe bowl. Place the white chocolate wafers (or candy coating) in a separate small microwave safe bowl. Melt according to instructions on packaging.
- Remove the balls from the freezer and dip the balls into the melted chocolate. Make sure you cover the balls completely in chocolate. I like to use a fork to shake the excess chocolate off of the Oreo balls. Dip half of the balls in the chocolate and half in the white chocolate. Place the dipped balls back on the baking tray with parchment paper or wax paper. Decorate with a drizzle of chocolate, additional crushed Oreos, sprinkles, crushed peppermint or crushed nuts, if desired.
- Place the baking sheet with the Oreo balls in the refrigerator and chill for at least an hour. Keep stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The Oreo balls will keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. You can also freeze the balls for up to 2 months.

These cookies ( truffles or cake pops ) are a sleeper ! I don’t know how many times I just passed them up in the past thinking “only a few ingredients , can’t be worth it “ . Well this year I added them to my cookie tray for Christmas ! They were loved by all and everybody said they tasted and looked like they would be so complicated to make . The white chocolate were my favorite ! If you have Oreo lovers they will go crazy over these ! Happy New year everyone !
is the texture supposed to be soft or crunchy?
soft, the chocolate coating will add a slight crunch, but I wouldn’t call it crunchy. Think truffle like.
Have you ever tried this with chips ahoy instead of Oreos?!
No, you might need more cream cheese because the Oreos have a cream filling that helps bind everything together.
How far can in advance can I make these?
Oreo balls freeze really well. You can make a month in advance without issue. Refrigerated, I wouldn’t trust them for more than a around 3 days, since the cream cheese will go bad.
I used this with lemon cookies dipped in white chocolate oh so good
Easy to follow recipe..I just made them.
