Tips

Snowmen OREO Cookie Balls: Give your OREO Cookie Balls variety by decorating them as snowmen. Substitute white chocolate for the semi-sweet chocolate and decorate with a snowman face using decorating gels and frostings.

Christmas Tree OREO Cookie Balls: Get in the holiday spirit by decorating the OREO Cookie Balls as Christmas Trees. Substitute white chocolate for the semi-sweet chocolate and decorate with a Christmas tree design using decorating frosting and a cinnamon candy on the top.

For Easier Dipping: Use a toothpick to dip the cookie ball into melted chocolate; shake off excess chocolate then place on waxed-paper. This may leave just a small hole on top that can be covered with a tiny dab of chocolate.

How to Store: Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.

Gift-Giving: Pack these delicious cookie balls in small containers. Then, add a colorful bow and gift tag to each container and you've got the perfect holiday or hostess gift.

The cookie-cream cheese mixture is yummy but the dipping into chocolate part is difficult. I made a few dipped in chocolate and then the chocolate got too hot and thick and wouldn't melt correctly. The few that I was able to dip were Way too chocolaty I couldnt even taste the oreos. I decided to roll the rest in powdered sugar and that was so much easier and tasted much better!!!!Also the recipe only made about 28 one inch balls so you may want to double it Read More

I make these every year and I need to keep making a large batch every year. This recipe is time consuming but simple. Notes I'd like to add: 1. Crush oreos then put into a food processor. Add the cream cheese but make sure it's softed to a spreadable state. The quickest way to do this is by throwing it in a microwave in a bowl. Mix until the mixture is nice and black. 2. Chill this mix in the fridge or the freezer. If planning on working on these in the same day the freezer works. 3. Ball up the mix. This stuff will be warm so put it in the freezer. 4. Coat with chocolate. Don't use almond bark or imitation people can tell the difference. Dark chocolate is rich; milk chocolate will taste like a hot cocoa ball; white chocolate has a great contrast. Most people who don't care for white chocolate like this one the best. 5. For dipping chocolate: warm up water to 180 degrees. If you have an electric tea kettle it works pretty well. I don't have a double boiler so I find a large pot and fill it with 2" of water. Then I have a metal mixing bowl to put the chocolate in. I don't take out all the balls from the freezer; instead take out about 20 at a time. They'll keep form better when dipping. I use a teaspoon to toss chocolate on then place onto parachment paper.

I thoroughly crushed the package of regular Oreos by placing them in a large ziplock bag and using the heel of my hand. I then hand-stirred the cream cheese and Oreos until evenly mixed. I used a tablespoon to scoop out the globs of Oreo and placed them on a wax paper-covered baking sheet. After placing them in the fridge for 30 min (or freezer for less) I hand rolled them into a nice round ball. Also using a double boiler is fantastic for melting chocolate. I added a small handful of chocolate chips at a time and stirred occasionally until it was all melted over low heat. I let the chocolate cool some and then put a couple of Oreo balls in at a time and rolled them around in the chocolate bowl with my fingers for even coverage. Chilled them again in fridge for a few hours and they came out perfectly. Read More

Love this recipe!!! I found that placing the balls in the freezer for about 20 minutes makes it much easier to dip this in the chocolate. This was a big hit with my family! Read More

I made the cream cheese/cookie balls and stuck them in the fridge overnight on waxed paper. They were hard enough to dunk in the chocolate and came off the waxed paper easily. I then put them back on the waxed paper and back into the fridge. AMAZING!!! Read More

Excellent - made dough entirely in food processor. I too used white chocolate to coat and sprinkled with jimmies so they were pretty as well. I followed a suggestion to use a tooth pick to dip and had to re-heat chocolate a few seconds half way through so it didn't get too thick. Very easy - So fudgey and yummy!! Read More
