Why You Must Make

  • Oreo Ball are an easy no-bake dessert recipe needing only 3 ingredients!
  • My son, Nick, came home from college with a request from one of his roomies: Oreo Balls. Well, sure, I could make those. I wasn’t exactly thrilled since the ones I’d tasted in the past were unimpressive. But the first batch I made changed my mind!
  • I had the whole gang home for dinner the day I made these, and, boy, did they rave about these babies. I also made the Brown Butter Cookie Dough Truffles and tried to get a clear winner from the crew. They were fans of both no-bake dessert balls, one with a smoother, creamier filling, and the other with the yummy crunch of mini chocolate chips. If you’re up for a challenge, try both and let me know your verdict.

Ingredient Notes

  •  Original Oreos – A 15-ounce package
  •  Cream Cheese – Must be at room temperature for easy blending
  •  Ghirardelli White or Dark Melting Wafers – Grab a backup bag so you don’t run out.
  •  Sprinkles – Optional, for garnish

No-Bake Oreo Balls

Well, in a rush to get Nick back to campus, these easy Oreo truffles were left at home. The pumpkin bread, brown butter coyotas, and Italian pasta casserole all made it into the car. About 10 minutes into the trip, I realized the Oreo Truffles were still parked in the fridge.

But, coincidentally, the roommate who suggested these ended up behind us as we pulled off the beltway onto the highway leading to the university. I quickly called him to see if he’d take Nick on the next leg of the trip, and he immediately agreed. He saved me over two hours of driving time, so I HAD to mail the truffles as my thanks.

I think the Oreo cookie truffles lasted a matter of minutes when they finally reached their destination. I will definitely treat the boys to this easy no-bake dessert again soon! It was the perfect thank you gift!

Recipe Tips 

  • Since Oreo balls are made with cream cheese, they must be stored in the refrigerator. They will keep well for up to 3 weeks in a covered container. If you freeze them, they will keep up to 2 months.
  • There are three ways to crush your Oreos. Use your food processor, blender, or a Ziploc bag and a rolling pin to smash them. A food processor is by far the quickest and most efficient method for making Oreo crumbs. 
  • PRO-Tip: Do not use a box of Oreo crumbs. You must make crumbs from regular Oreos including the cream filling.
  • PRO-Tip: The cream cheese must be at room temperature if you want to have a homogeneous mixture when you blend.
  • After shaping the balls, chill for at least one hour or overnight to allow them to become firm. If you’re in a hurry, you can also freeze for 15 minutes.
  • Use a dinner fork or candy fork to dip your Oreo balls into the melted chocolate. They should be fully immersed.
  • Tap the fork on the side of the bowl to let excess chocolate drip off, then remove to a parchment-lined baking sheet. 
  • If you want to add sprinkles, you must work fast as the candy coating dries very quickly.
  • After garnishing, chill your Oreo Truffles for about an hour before serving.
  • For the holidays, just dust the truffles with appropriately colored sugar or sprinkles immediately after coating. 
  • You can also drizzle them with a contrasting color of melted chocolate or top with a few crushed Oreo crumbles, nuts, or crushed candies.
  • Wrapping a few in a cellophane bag tied with a coordinating ribbon makes a terrific hostess or holiday gift.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do You Dip Oreo Balls?

Use a fork, skewer, or a candy dipping tool to immerse the Oreo balls into the chocolate. Tap the fork on the side of the bowl so the excess chocolate drips off and place the coated ball on parchment or waxed paper.

Why Are My Oreo Balls falling apart or losing their round shape?

If the balls are not chilled well before dipping, they won’t stay round after dipping into warm chocolate. Chill for at least an hour or even overnight, covered with plastic wrap. If you’re in a hurry, you may freeze them briefly to help them solidify more quickly.
