Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mix cream cheese and crushed cookies in a large bowl until well-blended.

  • Use your hands to shape mixture into 48 (1-inch) balls; place on a tray and freeze until thoroughly chilled, about 10 minutes.

  • Dip balls in melted chocolate; place in a single layer in a shallow waxed paper-lined pan.

  • Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.


Snowmen Oreo Cookie Balls: Give your cookie balls variety by decorating them as snowmen. Substitute white chocolate for 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 cookie balls as Christmas trees. Substitute white chocolate for 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 cookie ball into melted chocolate; shake off excess chocolate then place on waxed paper. This may leave a small hole on top that can be covered with a tiny dab of chocolate.
