These oreo balls are perfect for Christmas!

Oreo balls are a crowd pleasing favorite made with just a handful of ingredients. Top these truffles with festive sprinkles or crushed candy canes for an easy no bake holiday dessert!

Have you had Oreo balls before? They are so delicious! Oreo balls are made using a package of Oreos crushed up and mixed with a block of cream cheese.

The result is a fudgy chocolatey truffle ball that tastes almost like cake batter!

While we love Oreo balls anytime of year, Christmas is the perfect occasion for dressing them up with some holiday themed sprinkles and serving for your parties.

They’re super easy to make, and a great dessert for little hands to help make. My kids love to help decorate their own oreo truffles!

These are so easy to make but absolutely delicious every time. One of my favorite truffle recipes!

ingredients needed to make Christmas oreo balls

How to make Oreo balls

Step 1: Add the Oreos to a food processor. Process the Oreos into crumbs as shown below.

If you do not have a food processor, you can crush up the Oreos in a ziploc bag using a rolling pin. You just want to get them as smushed up as possible.

Step 2: Add the softened block of cream cheese to the Oreos and pulse the food processor to combine.

If you are doing this without a food processor, use a rubber spatula to combine it by hand.

The Oreos will start to combine with the cream cheese and thicken up.

Step 3: Once the food processor has combined as much as it can, transfer the Oreo ball batter to a bowl and finish mixing it together by hand. A rubber spatula is the best tool to use for this.

Step 4: Use a cookie scoop to drop balls of batter onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Roll the balls with your hands to form the truffle shape.

Place the Oreo balls into the fridge or freezer to chill for 30 minutes.

Step 5: Melt the dark chocolate melting wafers until smooth. You can do this either in the microwave or using the double boiler method.

Dip half of the Oreo balls into the melted dark chocolate and place back onto the baking sheet. Top immediately with Christmas colored sprinkles.

Step 6: Melt the white vanilla flavored melting wafers until smooth.

Dip the remaining half of the Christmas Oreo balls into the vanilla melted chocolate and place back onto the baking sheet. Top with Christmas sprinkles.

Step 6: Place the Christmas Oreo balls back in the fridge to chill until set.

How to store

  • In the refrigerator: store in an airtight container or bag for up to 2 weeks
  • In the freezer: store in an airtight container or bag for up to 2 months

These truffles might be super easy, but the taste is incredible! Fudgy, rich, and so flavorful. I bet you can’t eat just one!

While these truffles can be left out for a bit if it isn’t too warm, they taste best chilled and should be stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve. They should not sit out longer than two hours at room temperature.

Oreo balls are the perfect treat for your holiday gatherings!
