These Oreo cookie balls take very little time to make but turn out fabulous. It is so easy with just cream cheese and crushed Oreo cookies in the middle.

The truffles are dipped in chocolate and topped with Christmas sprinkles. It is so yummy and really festive.

These no bake treats look stunning on the dessert table every year when I make them. We love to make a tiered tray of Oreo Balls, Buckeye balls and Red velvet cake balls, or Snowman Oreo Balls Recipe.

Why this recipe is a hit:

With only a few ingredients, it is very simple to make. No need to heat up the oven and the entire process is quick and easy. The rich filling and chocolate coating taste so decadent.

  • Oreo Cookies
  • Chocolate Dipping Chips
  • White Chocolate Dipping Chips 
  • Green Candy Melts 
  • Red Candy Melts 

You can find the complete ingredient list and instructions at the bottom of the post.

Variations:

  • Almond Bark. Substitute this for the chocolate chips if preferred.
  • Dark Chocolate. Try using dark chocolate to coat the Oreo Balls for another delicious flavor.
  • Sprinkles. Enjoy these year round by simply changing the sprinkles. The options are endless for sprinkles.
  • Candy Melts. Try other colors for holidays and other occasions. Pink and Red would be pretty for Valentine’s Day. Pastels for Spring or Easter.
  • Cake Pop. Insert a lollipop stick into the Oreo balls before dipping into chocolate. Kids will love these Oreo Cake Pops.
  • Crushed candy. Top each one with crushed candy canes or peppermints for a tasty mint flavor.
  • Oreo Flavors. Traditional is my favorite but it is fun to use other types of Oreo cookies in this recipe. Some ideas include the ones with mint filling or chocolate filling.
  • Crushed cookies. Crush a few extra Oreo cookies and top the truffles with Oreo crumbs. This especially looks pretty against the ones coated in white chocolate.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Cookie Scoop. I prefer to make the Oreo balls using a cookie scoop. It makes it easy to form and ensures they are the correct size.
  • Softened Cream Cheese. The simple mixture is easier to combine when the cream cheese has been softened.
  • Full Fat. Now isn’t the time to substitute reduced fat cream cheese. The Oreo balls will have the best flavor and texture using full fat cream cheese.
  • Food Processor. It is quickest and easiest to crush the cookies using a food processor. However, if you do not have one just crush them inside a ziplock bag. Seal the bag and pound with a rolling pin or back of a wooden spoon until finely crushed.
  • Parchment Paper. The baking sheet is much easier to clean if lined with parchment paper. This will help with any excess chocolate.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Dip Oreo Balls in Chocolate?

It is easiest to dip the Oreo balls if you freeze them for 15 minutes to 30 minutes. Then use a fork to dip each one into the melted chocolate.

Try to remove any excess chocolate by shaking the fork gently.

How to store Oreo balls?

Can you freeze Oreo balls?

Yes, you can freeze these. There are two options.

Freeze the coated Oreo balls. I would use wax paper in between the layers so they don’t stick. This will also help them to stay intact.

Freeze the uncoated Oreo balls. Make the balls ahead of time and freeze. When ready to use, finish dipping in chocolate and store in a single layer. This will save you some of the prep work during the holidays.
