Ingredient Notes for Oreo Balls

Crushing the oreos in the food processor.

Step 1: Crush Oreos for this Easy Recipe and then add the Cream Cheese

First, place cookies in a food processor fitted with a blade attachment. Pulse until cookies become fine crumbs. Then, add the softened cream cheese to the crushed oreo and pulse until completely combined to create the Oreo mixture.

Step 2: Make Oreo Balls

Use a tablespoon cookie scoop to roll the Oreo crumb mixture into 1-inch balls. Place the oreo balls on a prepared baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Move the balls to the refrigerator for about an hour, or the freezer for about a half an hour, to allow them to harden.

Step 3: Melt the Chocolate for Chocolate Coating

Next, melt chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl. Then, add the peppermint extract to the melted chocolate.

Dipping the ball in the chocolate.

Step 4: Dip and Place the Oreo to Allow the Chocolate to Set

Then using a fork, coat the Oreo balls in chocolate. Allow the excess chocolate to drip off the fork prongs, and wipe off the excess coating on the edge of the bowl. Finally, return to the prepared baking sheet and top with crushed candy canes. Allow to harden until the chocolate is set. Lastly, store truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
