Oreo Cookie Balls

What can I say?  The treat that we must have at the holidays also happens to be one of the easiest recipes I know.  How about that?!

My sister-in-law is usually in charge of supplying these addictive little sweets, but I always make sure that it’s on her list.  If she’s not bringing them, I will!


Oreo Cookie Balls

  • 1 package Oreo Cookies
  • 8 oz. cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1 package almond bark or chocolate chips (white or semi-sweet)
  • sugar sprinkles or decorator icing
  1. Crush oreos in a food processer, blender, or with a rolling pin.
  2. Mix cookies and cream cheese until well combined and smooth.
  3. Roll into balls.  I use my cookie scoop and then the kids help me roll.
  4. Melt chocolate.
  5. Dip balls in chocolate.  Sprinkle with colored sugar or decorate with icing.
  6. Place on wax paper lined cookie sheet.  Refrigerate until set.

**This is a great recipe to make with the kiddos.
**It’s easy to tint the white almond bark to fit any holiday theme.
**Mint oreos and peanut butter oreos take these treats to a whole new yumminess!

  17. I had forgotten all about these until I saw them on your site. Years ago someone made these for a family reunion and one of my uncles just loved them. I can’t wait to try them out.

    I have been making these for a couple years and LOVE them! They are also great with different flavorings added, such as orange extract, almond extract, mint extract, etc.

  19. There goes my weight loss plan! I’m afraid to try out the recipe for fear that I’ll want to make it again and again! Seriously though, these would make great holiday gifts to neighbors, hostess gifts, teachers, etc. Thanks!

  20. I’ve made these several times and they are always a hit!! YUM! I have a craving for them now. LOL! 😉

  21. Have you tried them with Nutter Butters?! I figured if it worked with Oreos that Nutter Butters would be good too. Same deal, but I prefer them with milk chocolate almond bark.

    We actually like these better than the Oreo ones.
    Merry Christmas!

    • @Jenni Rom, Brilliant! I never would’ve thought of that, but we love Nutter Butters. It’s been years since I’ve had them… but I remember them fondly. I bet they’d taste a lot like buckeyes. Yum!

  22. I have made these before for Christmas and they went fast!

  23. You had me at Oreo, but these look fabulous. And easy enough to make along with other cookies!

    I am slightly confused with this recipe.. Do you crush the whole cookie, filling included? Or just the chocolate halves, removing the filling? Please let me know? As no recipe makes this point clear.
