Last weeks SWEET - Oreo Balls

A couple of weeks ago, I was reading one of the blogs that I follow ( I can't remember which one and I can't find the post but I think it was a fellow etsymom), and I came across this yummy sounding recipe for Oreo Balls.

I immediately went to the store and got the stuff I needed and proceeded to make only 1/2 of a batch.  I didn't want to make the whole batch in case we didn't like them.  But boy, that sure wasn't something that I needed to worry about.
My son LOVED them.

Here is the recipe:

Oreo Balls

1 - 8 oz. package of cream cheese
1 package of oreos
chocolate chips for melting

Pulverize the entire bag of Oreos in your food processor.  Dump in the whole 8 oz. of cream cheese.  Pulverize some more until it's all blended together and lumps up.  Roll mixture into small balls about 1 inch or so in diameter.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour until they are good and chilled.  Melt chocolate chips in microwave - don't forget to add in shortening so they will melt well for dipping.  Dip oreo balls in chocolate until covered then put on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper.  Refrigerate again until chocolate sets.
Decorate with melted white chocolate or icing in a tube that's available in stores.

I used fat free cream cheese and reduced fat oreos and it was still decadent and yummy!  These are so rich that I couldn't eat more than 1 or 2 at a time.  They're a great quick and easy treat.  So good in fact, that I actually made them 2 weeks in a row. 

If the etsymom whose blog I saw this on is reading this now, please feel free to leave a comment and take credit for your yuuuuummmmmyyyy oreo balls.  This will definitely be something that I make again.  It's also a great recipe to make if you have sweet little helpers because they could help you roll the balls and decorate.


  1. That would be my recipe from that I posted during the EtsyMom blog hop!! I'm so glad you liked them! If you like mint, next time make them with mint oreos!! (I'm also planning to try them with nutter butters!! YUM!!)

  2. Thanks so much Heather!!!!

    I looked through blog after blog and could not find the post. UG!

    And my son says thank you - I think they're his new favs. :)


Thanks so much for reading my blog and leaving a comment. I read every comment and try to reply to most of them although it may take me a couple of days - I'm a bit slow.
