Oreo Cookie Balls

They are great for the holidays or anytime you want a sweet treat and who doesn’t like Oreo cookies. These little Oreo cookie balls would make a wonderful gift for friends, neighbors and family. You won’t be able to stop eating them!

Oreo cookie balls are good anytime!

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (5.2 ounce) box Oreo cookies or about 13 cookies, crushed (could add more)
1/2 cup nuts, crushed. (pecans or walnuts)
2 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening like Crisco

Put cookies in a large plastic bag and crush with rolling pin. (Some will stick to the bag. Just turn wrong side out and scrape off with a spoon) Do the same thing with the nuts. Combine cookie crumbs and crushed nuts in a large bowl along with the cream cheese. Mix with mixer. Roll into balls about the size of a small walnut with your hands. I got 20 cookies from this. Place in freezer for 10 to 15 minutes on a cookie sheet. Melt the chocolate chips and shortening together in the microwave. I usually melt for 1 minute and then stir until smooth but microwaves vary so be sure and watch so you don’t burn. You can use a toothpick and dip cookies in melted chocolate or just drop in with a spoon and cover. Place on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper and put in fridge for about an hour. Store in air tight container. I keep these in the fridge but they will keep in a cool place. Makes 20 cookies. Enjoy!

Note: You could double this recipe or use regular chocolate chips instead of the white. You can also add a little red food coloring to some of the melted white chocolate and decorate with a little red for Christmas. You can leave out the nuts but I think they make them so much better. You could drizzle the cookie dough with bourbon if you like alcohol. This recipe is very versatile and easy so have fun experimenting.

  1. Delicious. Followed recipe exactly but I don’t classify as a cookie…more like a creamy fudge confection to die for.

  2. Love this one, a keeper! Look so pretty! <3
