Oreo balls dipped in dark chocolate and covered in orange and black sprinkles.

You read that correctly. Three ingredients. Plussss the sprinkles of your choosing. So does that technically make it 4 ingredients? Who really cares, right?

You’ll surely win “Best (insert your title) Award” if you make this Oreo balls recipe. My son thought it was so neat that I was making something that involved Oreos AND had sprinkles. Kid’s love sprinkles.

Adults too.

If you’ve never heard of Oreo balls (which should be a crime, I swear everyone knows about Oreo truffles by now), then lets cover some basic things you should know prior to making this painfully EASY Oreo balls recipe.

Oreo Balls ingredients

  • 1 package of regular Oreos
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • Chocolate for dipping.
  • Sprinkles for garnish

Obviously #4 is optional. But to make them Halloween appropriate, you’ve gotta add the orange and black sprinkles folks.

How to make Oreo Balls

Open 1 package (14.3 oz to be exact) of regular Oreos.

Place the Oreos in a food processor and pulse until they become a fine crumb.

Add the softened cream cheese to the food processor and pulse until the mixture comes together.

Shape into 1 inch balls and place the balls on a wax paper lined baking sheet.

Place the Oreo balls in the freezer for 10-15 minutes until chilled.

Meanwhile, melt some dipping chocolate. I opted to use dark chocolate, but white chocolate or even milk chocolate would taste amazing!

Remove the Oreo balls from the freezer and dip them in the chocolate and immediately place them back on the wax paper. BEFORE the chocolate sets be sure to sprinkle festive sprinkles overtop!

Ta-da! ?Halloween Oreo Balls!

  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Set aside.
