We Love These Bites!

These no-bake Oreo cream cheese balls are always the first thing to disappear at parties!

What’s not to love about them?!:

  • 3 Ingredients. It doesn’t get any simpler than that! Just three easy ingredients.
  • Flavor. They’re creamy, and chocolatey and remind me of biting into a slice of Oreo Cheesecake – only with even more Oreos.
  • Make-ahead. You can easily make these ahead of time, which is perfect for serving them at parties and showers.

I love making a batch of these along with Buckeye Balls and these Peppermint Truffles for the ultimate bite-sized dessert spread.

Only 3 Ingredients

You only need 3 ingredients for these Oreo cheesecake balls:

  • Oreo cookies – I don’t recommend using Double-Stuffed Oreos because they have too much filling for the balls to hold together.
  • cream cheese – Make sure to use full-fat, brick-style cream cheese. Reduced fat, spreadable, or whipped won’t work for this recipe.
  • white chocolate candy melts – or vanilla almond bark. Use high quality candy melts like Ghiradelli.

How to Make Oreo Balls

  1. PREP. Line a cookie tray with parchment paper or wax paper. Place the Oreos (wafers and filling) in a food processor and pulse until they’re fine crumbs. Note, making crushed oreos using a rolling pin won’t lend to the same texture. I highly recommend a food processor or blender.
  2. COMBINE. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat together the cookie crumbs and cream cheese until there are no lumps of cream cheese.
  3. SHAPE. Using a cookie scoop, form the mixture into round balls. I made mine a little smaller than a golf ball and got 24 total. Place on the lined cookie sheet and freeze until firm (about 20-30 minutes).
  4. COAT. Melt the chocolate candy melts according to package instructions. Using a fork or candy dipping tool, dip each ball in the melted chocolate and place back on the lined baking sheet. You want the truffles to stay cold and firm as you do this. So if they start to soften, pop them back in the fridge to harden again.
    • Optionally, melt the white chocolate candy melts. Then drizzle the melted chocolate over the top of each truffle. Use the ½ cup of Oreo crumbs to sprinkle on the top of the balls before the coating sets.
  5. CHILL + SERVE. Place the truffles in the fridge to harden for 1 hour. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Recipe Tips

  • Dipping. I use a fork to dip my truffles in the chocolate. You can also use a candy dipping tool if you have one.
  • Chill. Make sure the truffles are cold and firm when you dip them in chocolate. I usually do ½ at a time and leave the other half in the fridge so that they don’t start to soften.
  • Variations. There are so many delicious variations when making these best Oreo truffles! Here are just a few of my favorites:
    • Christmas. Use red & green candy melts!
    • Peppermint Oreo balls. Add 1½ teaspoons of peppermint extract to the filling mixture, and decorate the truffles with crushed candy canes.
    • Easter. Use white candy melts for the coating. Then add a few pastel sprinkles on top.
    • Sprinkles and candy bits are an easy way to change them up for different holidays and occasions.

Storing Info

  • STORE. To store truffles, place them in an airtight container and keep them in the refrigerator. They can stay fresh for up to 7 days when stored properly. Enjoy them chilled whenever you’re ready for a delicious treat!
  • FREEZE. Once they are fully hardened in the refrigerator, transfer them to a freezer-safe container or zip-top bag. Make sure to separate the truffles with parchment paper or wax paper to prevent them from sticking together. They can be stored in the freezer for up to 2 months.
    • When you’re ready to enjoy them, simply thaw them in the refrigerator before serving.
