You’ve probably tasted a couple of cake balls before. And if you’re like me, you were probably intimidated. How could they pack so much deliciousness in one little cake ball? Then I found this recipe for Oreo Balls. I love that I can make these with my children—I’ve found that they love to get their hands dirty, and rolling the dough into balls provides some good dexterity practice. And I love that they don’t look—or taste like—my children made them. They have an elevated taste, which is not something you always hear in the same sentence as Oreos. Delicious, yes. Elevated? Not until I discovered this recipe.

While these are great desserts for festive occasions like Christmas, you don’t have to make them a once-a-year treat. Create a tray of various desserts and include these Oreo Balls, Chocolate Rum Balls, and some Pavlova. Or you could have a ball with a themed night, which the kids (and adults) might love: cheese balls for appetizer, Meatballs for the entree, and Oreo Balls for dessert. And, if you really want to stretch out the theme, a Whiskey Highball for sipping. For some, that might be too many balls in the air, but for me, I just like to keep the (Oreo) balls rolling.

Tips & Tricks for Perfect Oreo Balls

  • Leave half of the balls in the refrigerator to chill while you’re dipping the other half. This will make sure you’re not dipping sticky, warm-temperature balls.
  • You might buy a candy dipping tool, or you can use a spoon.
  • To drizzle chocolate, you can use a spoon or a squeeze bottle.

FAQs

What type of Oreos should I use?

Regular Oreos are best because they have the right proportion of sandwich to filling. You can also try the Mint Oreos.

What variations can I try?

Look in the pantry and let your imagination be the guide; options include chocolate chips, crushed cookies, mini marshmallows, cinnamon, or nutmeg.

Why are there cracks in my Oreo balls?

Chill—but don’t freeze—the Oreo balls.

Make Ahead and How to Store

These Christmas Oreo Balls have a present for you: they’re easy to prep ahead. You can make and store them in the refrigerator for several days and take them out when you need them. It’s the same drill for leftovers: store in an airtight container in the fridge and serve chilled.
