How to make Pumpkin Oreo Balls
Step 1: Add the Oreos to a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs.
Step 2: Add the vanilla, pumpkin spice, butter, and cream cheese with the crumbled Oreos and blend together.
Step 3: Use a cookie scoop to scoop out the cookie dough batter. Roll the dough into a ball and place the cookie dough balls onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper.
Step 4: Place a pretzel stick into the top of the Oreo balls. (Be sure that you leave space to dip the balls into chocolate later.)
Step 5: Once all the cookie dough balls are added to the baking sheet, place the baking sheet into the freezer for 30 minutes.
Step 6: Once there are just 5 minutes left of the freezer time, melt the candy melts according to the directions on the packages.
Step 7: Dip and cover and add the sprinkles before the chocolate becomes too hard.
Step 8: Once the pumpkin balls are assembled, add the green leaves by piping them on. Put the balls into the fridge for 20 minutes.
You can actually store the Oreo balls for up to 3 weeks in the fridge. Just keep them in an airtight container.
I think that these do have a better flavor when they’re at room temperature, so when you’re ready to eat one (or two), just take them out and give them a few minutes to warm up.
FAQS & HELPFUL TIPS
Can I dip the Oreo balls before freezing them?
No, they need to be frozen before being dipped into the chocolate. This helps the chocolate stick and form that perfect crunchy texture.
What is the best way to dip Oreo balls?
I like to use a fork and dip the cookie balls down into the chocolate and then pull it out and let the excess chocolate drizzle off, back into the bowl.
