  • Baking Sheet
  • parchment paper or wax paper
  • food processor
  • knife
  • cookie scoop or small ice cream scoop
  • airtight container


  • 16 ounces Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
  • 8 ounce cream cheese softened
  • 16 ounces melting chocolate candy melts, or almond bark
  • Sprinkles


  • Prepare a baking sheet with waxed paper.
  • Place the cookies into a food processor and pulse until the cookies become fine crumbs.
  • Cut the cream cheese into chunks and add the cream cheese to the food processor. Pulse until the mixture is well blended and forms a large ball.
  • Using a small cookie scoop, portion the cookie dough into 1-inch balls and roll into a smooth ball.
  • Place baking tray in the freezer for at least 20 minutes.
  • Melt the chocolate and candy melts according to the package directions
  • Dip each ball into the melted chocolate and tap to remove the excess chocolate. Place the cookie ball on the prepared cookie sheet and immediately decorate with sprinkles.
  • Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for about 1 hour or until firm.


These Oreo balls need to be stored in the fridge or freezer until you are ready to serve. 
If you are not using candy melts, then I recommend that you temper the chocolate or almond bark by adding coconut oil or vegetable shortening so that it stays smooth. 
To freeze:
Prepare the cookie balls as directed and place on the baking sheet.
Put the baking sheet into the freezer until the cookie balls are frozen.
Transfer the cookie balls to an airtight container. Seal and freeze for up to 6 months.
