What are Oreo Balls:

They are a kind of truffle. The cookie crumbs are bound together by the cream cheese to form the center which will be coated with melted chocolate.

How to make Oreo Balls:

  • Crush: Put Oreos into a food processor and turn them into fine cookie crumbs.
  • Form: Mix the cream cheese with the cookie crumbs. Once fully incorporated, scoop out a portion and roll in between your palms to make a small ball. Place it on a baking sheet. Repeat until you finish the mixture. Freeze them.
  • Melt: Place each of the chocolate melting wafers (or candy coating) in separate microwave-safe bowls, one for the chocolate and another for the white ones. Melt using the microwave oven as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Coat: After 15 minutes, take out the balls from the freezer and start dipping each piece in the melted chocolate. You can decorate each piece at this point.
  • Chill: Put the baking sheet in the fridge for one hour before serving.

How to dip Oreo Balls into chocolate:

Simply put a piece into the melted chocolate. With a fork, shake off the excess by letting the melted chocolate drip as you pick up and hold the ball on its side over the bowl.

Another easy way is to simply poke a piece with a toothpick and use it to hold the ball as you dip it. Just cover the small hole that will be created as you take the toothpick out with chocolate.

Do they need to be refrigerated:

Yes! This is because of the cream cheese. Refrigerate them so that the shape and texture will be maintained and for food safety.

How to store:

  • Refrigerate: Keep them refrigerated in an airtight container and consume them within 3 weeks.
  • Freeze: Freezing them will make them last for up to a couple of months. Just put parchment paper in between the balls before putting them in a freezer bag.

Recipe Tips:

  • Use flavored Oreos like mint-flavored ones and add a drop of green food coloring in the white chocolate. They will be nice to serve on St. Paddy’s Day. Another way is to simply add crushed candy canes in this basic recipe to achieve the mint flavor.
  • Add crushed nuts, chopped peanut butter cups, or even nut butter, in the crumb mixture.
  • Others replace the dairy with nut butter, Nutella, or butter.
  • They make for a nice present, just put them in a jar or any small container.
