Instructions Checklist

  • Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 min. Dip balls in melted chocolate; place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan. Decorate with remaining ingredients to resemble snowmen.

  • Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Keep refrigerated.

How to Easily Dip Cookie Balls

To easily coat cookie balls with the melted chocolate, add balls, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2 forks to roll balls in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove balls with forks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Place balls in prepared pan; let stand until chocolate coating is firm.

Variations

Customize your own OREO Cookie Balls this holiday season! Substitute semi-sweet chocolate or milk chocolate for white chocolate. Or, tint white chocolate with red or green food coloring before coating cookie balls. Drizzle with additional melted chocolate or icing to make fun holiday decorations.

So easy and fun to do. I made two batches. One with Andys peppermint chocolate to dip them in and one following the directions. Both are scrumptious! Thank you for the recipe. Read More

They look adorable but are extremely time consuming and messy. I am not a huge fan of the flavour either. Cream cheese and Oreo cookies is not all that pleasant. They took much more chocolate to coat than the recipe calls for and were not a clean ball as illustrated. The White chocolate gets muddied with the cookie balls so I had to melt the chocolate in small batches. In the end I didn't even bother to decorate them because it was just too long a process. A disappointing endeavour. UPDATE: January 2016-my son decided he loved these so I made another attempt. Using suggestions by others I stuck a toothpick in each ball which I formed after rubbing my hands in veg oil so the muck didn't stick. Then I dipped them in the White chocolate and there was minimal transfer and they actually didn't look too bad. Keeping the balls well chilled helped and I set the chocolate in a hot water bath to keep it liquid. He loves the flavour so he got the whole batch to share with his work friends. Read More

I have been making these for years and they are a HUGE hit with everyone. I have made them for Easter with pastel colors in the chocolate Halloween with orange and black for Christmas I have not done the "snowman" idea but have used red and green chocolate as well as sprinkles on the white chocolate before it sets. You get a lot of balls out of this recipe because you don't want to make them too big as they are very rich. Read More

I agree with other reviewers that these were difficult to coat. They are quite time consuming but here are a few changes I made to make the decorating easier. I froze them a bit longer and only took half out of the freezer at a time. I also kept the chocolate in smaller batches to keep it "clean". Finally I used a toothpick in the ball to use for dipping. It's easy enough to fix that small spot with either more frosting or decoration than if you are using your hands to dip these. Read More

Made this for Christmas dessert. The family ranted and raved over it! We couldn't stop eating them although very very rich. The key is to pulverize the oreos to a dust like consistency. This is what makes the dessert creamy. No one was able to guess what the ingredients were. They were amazed when I told them how simple they are to make. Read More

I will not make this again. I thought it would be easy as stated but this dessert was a hot mess. The chocolate got muddy from the cookie balls & it was very hard to get these balls coated. I made two pans of balls & was only able to coat one pan of cookies & not all of those were coated before the chocolate seemed to get hard. I was so disappointed since I wanted to take these to a party. I have to agree with the comment Beth made. Read More

Easy to make....Not!!!!!! Sorry be these were an absolute nightmare on Christmas Eve! I do not own a food processor so crushed the Oreos with a pestle. Then the remaining pellets by hand. That took time. I oiled my hands so forming the dough with the mixture w/softened cream cheese was fine but time consuming. I must not have an ounce of patience!! Then comes the nightmare. I used white baking chocolate like the recipe says. I did not have a Pyrex bowl so used a small measuring cup and heated small batches of chocolate. The chocolate seemed to take an eternity to melt. Then applying the chocolate to the frozen balls was nuts!! Tried two forks a toothpick a spoon. It is all in the timing. This is a very messy recipe & might be okay once you figure out what works best and the timing. The chocolate turns to glue quickly. You have to work really fast. Maybe Almond Bark would work better. I knew going into this it might be a fiasco but never dreamed it would be this bad. Ain t nobody got time for this!! Or if you do you are a Saint. This recipe was exhausting. I was looking for something no bake because my oven is broken. Next time I will do something with Jello. Merry Christmas signed The Grumpy Grinch. Read More

I ve been making these for years! I sometimes do different variations with other flavors of Oreos. They are always a hit. They are simple to make. My 3 year old granddaughter can even do this with help! They are a bit time consuming but if you like to bake it s no big deal. I read some of the not so great reviews and I m convinced those people either can t bake or don t enjoy it. These are delicious! In my opinion anyone who doesn t like them has no palate. Read More
