3 Ingredient Oreo Balls Recipe
3 Ingredient Oreo Balls
These are the easiest and yummiest treat using 3 ingredients. You can make these 3 ingredient oreo balls for any season or occasion! These are made with a Halloween theme.
- 1 pkg Oreos You can use any flavor to change up the flavor of the oreo balls. Make this recipe GLUTEN FREE by using gluten free Oreos!
- 8 oz cream cheese
- melted chocolate, white chocolate, or melting wafers to dip the oreo balls in
Begin by crushing the Oreos either in a food processor, blender or by hand with a rolling pin.
Add the Oreos to a large bowl and then add the cream cheese to it. You can also use a stand mixer to mix this up. I simply use a wooden spoon to mix the two ingredients together.
Once you have the oreos and cream cheese mixed together thoroughly take the mixture and put it in the fridge for about 10 minutes to harden it up just a bit.
When you are ready use a cookie scoop to scoop out equal balls. Roll them into nice, smooth balls with your hands and place them on a piece of parchment paper on a pan.
While its cooling in the fridge, prp your chocolate or candy melts. Since these were made for Halloween I used 3 different colors of candy melts. I use the microwave to melt the chocolate, 30-second intervals, making sure to stir in between.
I also added some to a small pastry bag. You will now need to act fast before the chocolate hardens up.
Using a fork to hold your oreo ball, lower it into the chocolate and cover the entire ball. Use the fork to lift out the ball and let the extra chocolate drip off. Placem the oreo ball onto the parchment paper carefully and move on to the next.
Now you can leave them as is or if you are making them for a Halloween or Christmas treat you can add a couple cute things to make them appropriate for the season. I drizzled orange, black and blue chocolate over the tops of the Oreo balls and then I added some googly eyes to them. They are perfect for Halloween.
Once they harden completely you can put them in the fridge to store them. We keep ours in the fridge always. We prefer them cold, and they are ore firm that way.
Store them in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
