Oreo balls are a simple, three-ingredient recipe that requires no baking or cooking.
- Serves: 30 persons
- 36oreos ( 1 package of regular oreos)
- 1(8 ounce) package cream cheese (softened)
- 16ounces vanilla candy melts
- Optional: chocolate candy melts
Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Crush the Oreos (filling included) in a food processor until you have fine crumbs.
Step 3Add the softened cream cheese and blend until smooth and thick.
Step 4Scoop the mixture using a small cookie scoop and then roll each scoop into a ball between your hands. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and chill for 15 minutes in the freezer.
Step 5While chilling, melt the vanilla candy melts in the microwave: Place in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 1-minute increments, stirring in between each heating, until melted and smooth. (If the mixture is too thick for coating the balls, you can add a little vegetable or coconut oil to thin it out.)
Step 6Place a frozen Oreo ball on the tines of a fork. Carefully dip each Oreo ball into the melted white chocolate candy. Roll around until coated and use the fork to pick up each ball. Carefully shake off the excess chocolate coating.
Step 7Carefully place each coated ball on a parchment-lined baking sheet by gently jiggling the ball off of the fork until it is on the parchment paper.
Step 8To decorate, top with additional crushed Oreos while the coating is still wet. Alternatively, allow the white chocolate coating to harden, melt the chocolate candy melts using the same method used for the vanilla candy melts, and then drizzle a little of the chocolate over the top of each ball.
