Easy Oreo Cookie Ball Recipe

This Oreo cookie ball recipe is so simple and easy to make! I’ve been making these for years for potlucks, holiday get-togethers, and just for fun! Making them with your kids is a fun and easy rainy or snowy day activity! Plus they are so easily adapted to any holiday making them one of my go-to recipes!

Cream Cheese – I use full-fat cream cheese for my oreo cookie balls but you can use 1/3 fat if you’d prefer.

Oreo Cookies – the regular package of Oreo cookies. Do not use double stuffed or the family-size package just the basic regular package of Oreos. You can use different flavored Oreos such as mint.

Melting Chocolate – I use almond bark but you can use any melting chocolate you prefer.

Step 1: Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Step 2: Crush your Oreos. There are two ways to do this. Add them to your food processor and crush them or place the cookies in a gallon-size zip lock bag and crush them with a rolling pin. While I love my food processor, my boys love crushing the Oreos with a rolling pin!

Step 3: Mix crushed Oreos with cream cheese. Again, you can use the food processor you just crushed the Oreos in or you can mix by hand. This time I mixed by hand since I had the littles helping!

Step 4: Roll the mixture into small balls about 1 inch each and place them on the prepared cookie sheet.

Step 5: Melt your chocolate (do not use chocolate chips for this instead be sure to get melting chocolate like Almond Bark). You can do this in a double boiler or the microwave. I usually just melt it per the package instructions in the microwave.

Step 6: Roll or dip the Oreo cookie balls in the melted chocolate and place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

Step 7: Before they harden fully, add any decorations – sprinkles, crushed Oreos, or whatever decorations you’ve decided to use. I usually do a few balls at a time decorating as I go. If the kids are helping, I decorate as they dip or roll.

Step 8: Once all of the Oreo balls have been covered in the melted chocolate place the cookie sheet in the fridge to allow them to harden. Pro tip – be sure to check the fridge before you start so you aren’t like me rearranging the fridge at the last minute!

Step 9: Enjoy! Can you tell which one of these is mine and which set was made by the twins? Personally, I think I’ll take the ones on the left to the pot-luck but the ones on the right are much tastier! These rich decadent Oreo cookie balls are sure to delight everyone!
