Oreo balls ingredients:

Oreo cookies- we used Oreo cookies for this cake because we like the chocolaty taste of Oreo cookies, but you can use any kind of chocolate sandwich cookies. Use the regular Oreos for this recipe and not the double stuffed ones.

Cream cheese- use full-fat cream cheese, and make sure that it’s at room temperature. We suggest using whole-fat cream cheese for this recipe.

Candy melts- we used a combination of semisweet chocolate and white chocolate candy melts. Make this recipe your own and use your favorite flavor of candy melts!

How to make oreo balls:

Start by crushing the Oreos. The best way to crush Oreos is in a food processor or in a blender. If you don’t have a food processor or a blender, place the Oreos in a ziplock bag and smash them with a cup until fine crumbs form.

Transfer the Oreos to a medium-sized bowl and set aside.

Add the room temperature cream cheese into a big mixing bowl, and mix with an electric hand mixer for 2-3 minutes or until the cream cheese is creamy and silky.

Add the oreo crumbs to the cream cheese and mix until well combined.

Use a small cookie scoop to scoop out the oreo balls (or about 1 tbsp). Roll them into balls using your hands and place them onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Freeze the balls for about 20 minutes so they will not crumble when you dip them into the chocolate.

After you place the oreo balls in the freezer for about 30 minutes, take them out of the freezer. Melt the chocolate and mix it until it’s smooth and silky without any lumps. Place each oreo on a fork or a spoon and gently dip it into the melted chocolate. Use a spoon to drizzle more chocolate on top.

My favorite trick to make these smooth and flawless is to dip each ball into the melted chocolate, drizzle the melted chocolate with another spoon until it’s nicely coated, and then tap the excess chocolate by tapping the fork or the spoon on the side of the bowl.

Carefully place each oreo ball onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. I like to use a small skewer to help place the oreo balls on the baking sheet.

If you are using oreo crumbs for decoration, immediately sprinkle the crumbs on top of the oreo balls so the crumbs will stick to the chocolate.

Place the chocolate-coated oreo balls in the fridge to firm up for about 30 minutes.

Serve these as is or drizzle melted chocolate on top of the oreo balls. We like to drizzle white chocolate on the semisweet chocolate-covered oreo balls and on the white chocolate-covered oreo balls.

How to melt chocolate for dipping?

There are a few ways to melt chocolate. We like to use the microwave. If you will use the microwave, you will have to be careful that the chocolate won’t burn. Before I knew how to melt chocolate in the microwave, I burned it a few times and I didn’t understand what happened.

Simply microwave your chocolate or candy melts in small bursts. Really small bursts 10-20 seconds each time. Stir the chocolate in between every burst until the chocolate is nice and melted.



Can I use regular chocolate for this recipe?

Yes. If you don’t want to use candy melts, you can simply use chocolate bars. We suggest using the highest quality chocolate that you can find and afford.

Can I make these without a food processor or blender?

Yes! if you don’t have a food processor or a blender, place the Oreos in a ziplock bag and smash them with a cup until fine crumbs form. Mix the softened cream cheese with a whisk or a wooden spoon until it’s creamy, then add the oreo crumbs.

Make sure that there are no big oreo pieces in the oreo crumb mixture.

Tips for this recipe:

  • Add some of your favorite add-ins! Make this recipe your own and add your favorite muffins add-ins: chocolate chips, chopped walnuts, chopped pecans, chocolate chunks, M&M, caramel sauce, white chocolate, kinder, toffee, and more! Be creative!
  •  Make sure you line your baking pan with parchment paper to prevent the oreo balls to stick to the pan.
  • Make sure that your cream cheese is at room temperature. An hour or two before making these treats, take the cream cheese out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature. The cream cheese should be soft to the touch. If your cream cheese is too cold, it will be harder to mix and there will be lumps in the batter of the oreo balls.
  • Use a cookies scoop to scoop out the balls, that way you will have even-sized balls, plus it ensures that your balls cool evenly.
  • Keep the oreo balls chilled in the fridge before serving. if you place the oreo balls at room temperature, the chocolate may melt.
  • Use whole fat cream cheese. Don’t use low fat in this recipe. light cream cheese can be not as rich in flavor and not as creamy.
  • Use regular oreo for this recipe. Don’t use double stuffed Oreos for this recipe, the double stuffed Oreos contain too much stuffing and it will ruin your oreo balls.
