I normally prefer homemade cookies to store bought, but there is something about an Oreo Cookie Balls that no one can recreate. I love most desserts that include Oreos and this dessert recipe is no different.

It’s only 3 ingredients and so easy to make.  Also, everyone loves these 3 ingredients Oreo balls when I make them.  You can’t go wrong with this easy and delicious dessert recipe. If you love Oreo balls, you might also like Peppermint Oreo Balls.


Ingredients needed for Oreo Truffles - Oreos, cream cheese, melting chocolate
  • Oreos – I love using the regular Oreos for this recipe. You don’t need anything fancy and I don’t recommend the double stuff as it’s too much cream for this recipe.
  • Cream Cheese – Do not use the reduce fat cream cheese and let the cream cheese soften at room temperature. Usually sitting at room temperature for 2-3 hours works perfectly.
  • Melting Chocolate – Melting chocolate, baking chocolate or chocolate chips all work great to make the candy coating for these Oreo balls.

For the full list of ingredients and recipe, scroll to the bottom for the recipe card.

Variations Ideas

  • Change up the Chocolate. – This recipe would be great with dark, milk or white chocolate for the candy coating on these Oreo balls. You can also do a mixture for more variety for serving.
  • Use Different Types or Oreos. – I use traditional Oreos for this recipe but there are a variety of Oreos that you can choose from. Peppermint Oreos would be perfect for Christmas and Vanilla Oreos would be great with white chocolate.
  • Use different type of Sprinkles – You can easily make these for any holidays with different type of festive sprinkles. These are perfect for any event or holiday because they are always a crowd pleaser.
  • Make Mint Truffles. – Add some peppermint extract to the Oreo and cream cheese mixture. Then top with crushed up candy canes to make delicious Mint Truffles.

How to Make Oreo Truffles

  • Step 1 – First I like to line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper for easy clean up.
Crushing Oreos in a food processor

Step 2 – Finely crush the package of Oreos in a food processor. I prefer the Oreos to be crushed into fine crumbs as they mix easier for this recipe.

Mixing cream cheese into the Oreo Crumbs

Step 3 – Then put Oreo cookie crumbs in a large mixing bowl and add the softened block of cream cheese. You’ll want the cream cheese to be softened so that it’ll combine well with the Oreos

Rolling the Oreo crumbs into balls and placing on a baking sheet

Step 4 – Once the Oreos and cream cheese are thoroughly combined, roll small amounts into individual 1-inch balls.  I use a small cookie scoop to assist in creating the mixture into the ball shapes.  Then place the Oreo balls on the prepared lined cookie sheet and freeze for about 30 minutes.

Melting the chocolate and the Oreo balls with a fork

Step 5 – During this time melt the chocolate. Heat the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals (stirring after each interval) until the chocolate is fully melted.

Dipping the Oreo Balls into the melted chocolate

Step 6 – Then remove the Oreo crumb balls from the freezer and dip them into the melted chocolate. Use a fork to dip them into the chocolate and allowed the excess chocolate to drip off of the fork.

Drizzling the melted chocolate over the Oreo Balls on the baking sheet

Step 7 – Then place the Oreo balls back on the baking sheet. Then drizzle the truffles with your favorite sprinkles or additional crushed up Oreos. Place the Oreo balls in the refrigerator until the chocolate sets (usually around 15 minutes to 20 minutes).  Then they are ready to enjoy!

Expert Tips:

  • Cream Cheese – Don’t use light cream cheese, the full fat one is the best option for this recipe.
  • Freeze – Be sure to freeze the Oreo balls before attempting to dip them in the chocolate.
  • Food Processor – Use a food processor or a blender to crush the Oreos so that they blend more evenly with the cream cheese. However, if you don’t have a food processor, you can crush the Oreos in a ziplock bag with a rolling pin.
  • Harden Chocolate – If the chocolate begins to harden while you’re using it put it back in the microwave for 5-10 seconds.

How to Store:

Refrigerate these no bake Oreo balls in an air tight container for up to 1 week. You can keep them at room temperature for 2-3 hours when serving.

Can you Freeze these Oreo Balls?

Yes, these Oreo truffle balls can be frozen in an air tight freezer safe container or bag for up to 2-3 months. Defrost them out in the refrigerator overnight and then they are ready to be enjoyed.
