    I’m not sure who first invented this idea of combining Oreos with a soft filling, but kudos to them because the idea is GENUIS! 

    What do Oreo balls taste like?

    If you imagine a chocolate cheesecake, with a soft almost mousse like texture, that is what these Oreo balls taste like! Sounds incredible right?!

    They’re super decadent, and the crack of the hard dark chocolate on the outside adds a great, indulgent texture to the Oreo ball. Trust me, it’s a winner!

    How to make these Oreo balls

    These Oreo balls are SO EASY to make! Using only 3 ingredients, they come together so quickly.

    Start off by lining a tray with some baking paper and set that aside. Use a tray that will fit into your freezer.

    Next add your Oreos to a food processer, and process until they resemble fine bread crumbs.

    Add your crushed Oreos to a bowl, along with some room temperature cream cheese. You want to use the firm type not the spreadable type (see note 1 on recipe card below).

    Using a hand mixer, mix until well combined. Avoid overmixing otherwise your mixture may become too soft.

    Next add heaped tablespoons of the mixture onto the tray that you prepared earlier. Then use the palm of your hands to roll them into balls.

    This will give you approximately 12 large Oreo balls, but you can make them smaller if you wish. Place them into the freezer for 15 minutes to firm up.

    In the meantime, melt some dark chocolate melts in the microwave for 20 second bursts at a time, mixing in between each burst until fully melted.

    Once melted, coat the Oreo balls with the melted chocolate.

    I like to use two forks to roll the Oreo balls in the chocolate and then lift them up and let any excess chocolate drip off (see video below for demonstration).

    Finish off by decorating the Oreo balls however you like. While the chocolate hasn’t set, you can sprinkle crushed Oreos or desiccated coconut on top. I like to make a zig zag shape with melted white chocolate on the top of mine.

    To do this, melt some white chocolate melts in the microwave for 20 second bursts at a time, mixing in between each burst until fully melted. Next place the melted chocolate into a piping bag and then cut a very small bit of the tip off. Then pipe the white chocolate over the Oreo balls in a zip zag motion (see video for demonstration).

    Servings: 12 large oreo balls

    IMPORTANT: For accuracy, I would recommend using the gram measurements provided as those are the exact quantities I use. Cup measurements are given as estimates (based on US cup measurements) to make it easier for those who do not have a scale.

    Ingredients
     

    • 28 Oreos - 2 small packets, regular (not double stuffed)
    • cup (150 g) cream cheese - room temperature, firm block type (see note 1)
    • 2 cups (340 g) dark chocolate melts - see note 2
    • cup (56 g) white chocolate melts - optional for decorating

    Instructions

    • Begin by lining a tray with some baking paper and set aside. Use a tray that will fit into your freezer.
    • Next add your Oreos into a food processor and process them until they resemble fine bread crumbs (see note 3 if you don't have a food processor).
    • Add your cream cheese to your Oreos and using a hand mixer, mix until well combined. Avoid overmixing as this can make your mixture too soft (see note 4).
    • Add heaped tablespoons of the mixture onto your lined tray from earlier. You should end up with about 12 large oreo balls. You can make them smaller if you wish, which will result in more Oreo balls.
    • Use the palm of your hands to roll the mixture into little balls (see note 4 if the mixture is too soft). Place the tray of Oreo balls into the freezer for 15 minutes.
    • In the meantime, melt your dark chocolate melts in the microwave for 20 second bursts at a time, mixing in between each burst until fully melted.
    • Coat the Oreo balls in the melted chocolate. I like to use two forks to roll the Oreo balls in the chocolate and then lift them up and let any excess chocolate drip off (see video for demonstration).
    • Once they're covered in chocolate, you can decorate them however you like, but I like to decorate mine with white chocolate. To do this, melt your white chocolate melts in the microwave for 20 second bursts at a time, mixing in between each burst until fully melted. Next place the melted chocolate into a piping bag and then cut a very small bit of the tip off. Then pipe the white chocolate over the Oreo balls in a zip zag motion (see video for demonstration).
    • Let the chocolate fully set and then they're ready to eat! You can place them into the freezer for 5-10 minutes to speed up the process 🙂

    Notes

    Note 1. You want to use a firm block type cream cheese not the spreadable type, otherwise your Oreo balls will become too soft. If you can only access the spreadable type, then you will need to reduce the amount of cream cheese. Note that your Oreo balls will be sweeter as a result. 
    Note 2. You can get away with using slightly less chocolate (about 1 and 1/2 cups), but if you end up making smaller Oreo balls then you will need the full 2 cups of chocolate as you will have more Oreo balls to cover. You can use regular chocolate too (not melts or baking chocolate), but it will need to be tempered, otherwise the chocolate will begin to melt easily in your hands as you're holding the Oreo balls. 
    Note 3. If you don't have a food processer then you can place the Oreos into a sealable sandwich bag and then crush the Oreos with a rolling pin until you have fine crumbs. 
    Note 4. If you find that the mixture is a little soft and sticking to your hands, then pop your tray into the freezer for 10-15 minutes and then roll them into balls.

      Love these! Oreo balls are always my go-to treats to make for parties or potlucks.

      Fun tip that a lot of people don’t seem to think of: you can use any kind of Oreo and any kind of melting chocolate (dark/milk/white), and the recipe will otherwise stay the same and be just as delicious. My favorites are golden Oreos and mint Oreos with white chocolate/candy melts.

        Hi Sam! Yess I absolutely love how easily Oreo balls can be chopped and changed 😀 I’ve never tried the mint Oreos before! I’ll have to give it a go next time 🙂
