OREO Cake Balls

What you will need:

  • 14.3oz package of oreos OR 36 cookies
  • 8oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 16oz of your favorite chocolate for dipping (I’m using 8oz semi sweet and 8oz white chocolate)
  • sprinkles or 1/4 cup reserved cookie crumbs (optional)
  • mini ice cream scooper (optional)
  • wax paper
  1. Start by crushing your Oreos very finely. I put mine in my Ninja bullet and it crushed it into a fine powder within seconds. You can also put them in a ziplock freezer bag and beat them with a rolling-pin.
  2. Mix the softened cream cheese with your Oreo crumbs. Make sure it is well mixed.20171022_154340-1220643438.jpg
  3. Using your mini ice cream scooper, scoop out two balls and roll them together to make one medium-sized cake ball. You can also just use your hands to roll walnut sized balls if you don’t have a scooper. Place on waxed paper. Once finished making the cake balls place them into the freezer for 30 minutes.
  4. Melt your chocolate in a tall container (you want to be able to dip them all the way in). Remove cake balls (5 at a time) from the freezer. I just plop them into the chocolate and scoop them up with a fork. 20171022_1626271885711536.jpgGently tap fork against the container to get rid of excess chocolate. Place them on the waxed paper and decorate with sprinkles or reserved cookie crumbs immediately before chocolate hardens.
  5. Let cake balls harden completely before serving. They can be placed in the freezer to speed up process.
  6. Store finished cake balls in an airtight container up to 3 months. I use wax paper in between the cake ball layers to prevent them from freezing together.
