How to Make Christmas Ornament Oreo Balls

Step 1: Begin by adding half of the Oreos to a food processor, half of the cream cheese cubes, the rest of the Oreos, then the rest of the cream cheese. Pulse together on high until combined and smooth, scraping down the sides of the processor as needed.

Step 2: Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Using a 1-inch cookie scoop, scoop out uniform spoonfuls of the Oreo mixture. Roll each scoop into a smooth ball and place them on the lined baking sheet. Once full, put the baking sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes for the Oreo balls to firm up.

Step 3: Next, lay the Reese’s mini cups on wax paper with the widest end down, and spray each one with edible gold spray. Set aside.

Step 4: About 3 minutes before the Oreo balls are done chilling, melt the almond bark and candy melts in separate microwave-safe bowls according to the package instructions. Set them on your counter along with the chilled Oreo balls.

Step 5: Doing so one at a time, dip each of the Oreo balls into either of the chocolate barks or candy melts, covering them completely, then place them on the baking tray. Top each ball with a gold mini Reese’s and decorate with sprinkles before the chocolate hardens.

Step 6: Once decorated, place them back in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to allow the Oreo balls set completely.

Storage and Re-heating Notes

These delicious Christmas Ornament Oreo Balls store well for weeks, and are an easy treat to serve. 

IN THE FRIDGE: These treats keep for up to two weeks when stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I recommend storing them in one flat layer to avoid messing up the decorations. 

IN THE FREEZER: Store these Oreo balls in the freezer for up to two months in a freezer-safe bag or container.

Helpful Tips & Substitutions

The package didn’t come with instructions. How do I melt candy melts?

If there are no package instructions, microwave for 1 minute on full power, stir and continue microwaving for 30-second intervals until melted.

How long does it take for the chocolate to harden?

The chocolate will harden quickly, so be sure to decorate each Oreo ball right after dipping it in the chocolate.

Can I freeze Oreo balls?

These Christmas Ornament Oreo Balls can be frozen for up to two months.

Equipment

  • Food Processor
  • Baking Sheet
  • Wax Paper
  • Microwaveable Bowls

Ingredients

  • 14.3 oz Oreos about 35 cookies
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened and cubed
  • 6 oz white almond bark
  • 6 oz chocolate almond bark
  • 12 oz green candy melts
  • 20 Reese's mini unwrapped cups
  • edible gold spray paint
  • Christmas sprinkles

Instructions

  • Begin by adding half of the Oreos to a food processor, half of the cream cheese cubes, the rest of the Oreos, then the rest of the cream cheese. Pulse together on high until combined and smooth, scraping down the sides of the processor as needed.
  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Using a 1-inch cookie scoop, scoop out uniform spoonfuls of the Oreo mixture. Roll each scoop into a smooth ball and place them on the lined baking sheet. Once full, put the baking sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes for the Oreo balls to firm up.

  • About 3 minutes before the Oreo balls are done chilling, melt the almond bark and candy melts in separate microwave-safe bowls according to the package instructions. Set them on your counter along with the chilled Oreo balls.

  • Once decorated, place them back in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to allow the Oreo balls set completely.

Notes

  • You can also use red candy melts instead if you prefer.
  • I like using two smaller baking sheets when making this recipe. They fit in my refrigerator easier, and it allows me to work in batches. While one tray chills, I can decorate the other one.  
  • I recommend taking these out of the fridge about 30 minutes to 1 hour before serving. The Oreo balls hold up well but are easier to eat when the chocolate has softened a bit.
