Food 105: Oreo Balls Recipe

I'm a sucker for sweets, so whenever I'm in the kitchen 55% of whatever I'm making is some sort of desert. Whenever there are fundraisers, parties, or club meetings the top requested items are Oreo balls. Unlike most treats it's very easy to make and requires only 3 ingredients!

For the materials you will need:

-microwave safe bowl

-regular large bowl

-food processor

-wooden spoon

-plastic gloves (optional)

For the ingredients you will need:

-1 package of regular oreos

-1 package of cream cheese

-1 package of white almond bark

1) In your food processor shred the oreos into a powdery substance. It's best to only do a handful of oreos at a time as opposed to the entire package at once. While you are doing this it's best to leave out the cream cheese to thaw out.

2) Carefully pour the oreo powder into the large bowl, then mix in the cream cheese with a wooden spoon or you can put on some plastic gloves and mix them with your hands. Mix until it's a thick and even consistency.

3) Form the mixture into meatball sized circles.

4) Melt the almond bark in the microwave and just follow the instructions on the package!

5) Dip and cover the entire oreo ball in almond bark, then place on parchment paper to dry. Repeat until all the oreo balls are done!

Again with these you can take as much decorating liberty as you would like! You can put them in cupcake cups, add sprinkles, glitter, decorative toothpicks, whatever you want! I hope you guys enjoy this quick and tasty treat!


  1. This is a really excellent blog.

    I'm definitely following.

    Are there any plans to turn this into a proper magazine, or is it going to stay as a blog? You pull of what you're doing with enough panache to do the former, so I reckon it's something to think about.

    Have a look at my blog. We write about similar subjects even though the content is quite different.


  2. My family was introduced to Oreo Balls at a marching band competition and my mom got the recipe from another band mom. Ever since, Oreo Balls are one of the top attractions of every holiday get-together we have with our friends!
