ingredients to make Oreo Eyeballs

What are Oreo balls made of?

  • Cream Cheese – We suggest full fat cream cheese for the best flavor.
  • Oreo Cookies – You can use regular Oreos or Halloween Oreos. Do NOT use double stuffed. The extra filling makes the Oreo balls too soft.
  • Candy Melts – You will need white melts, at least 1 color for the irises, black candy melts, and red candy melts. I found all the colors I needed at Michaels but you can also order them on Amazon.

You’ll have extra candy melts but they won’t go to waste. Make these easy Halloween rice krispies treats with them!

Easy Oreo Balls Recipe

Step 1 – Crush Oreos. You’ll want to finely crush your Oreos. We put them in a gallon freezer bag and hit them with a rolling pin but you can also put them in a food processor and pulse until they are finely chopped.

Step 2- Mix. In a large bowl combine the softened cream cheese and the Oreo cookie crumbs. Use your hands to thoroughly combine the two together until they make a kind of dough.

Step 3 – Roll and Chill. Roll the mixture into 1 inch balls. Make sure to get them as smooth as you can so the chocolate will cover them better in the next step.

Place the rolled balls on a wax paper or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Once you have finished rolling place the baking sheet in the freezer and let the balls chill for at least 30 minutes.

Step 4 – Melt chocolate. Once the Oreo truffles have chilled for 30 minutes you’re ready to start decorating. Put the white candy melts in a microwavable bowl or mug and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir well and then microwave for 10 seconds at a time, stirring in between each, until the chocolate is fully melted.

Step 5 – Dip. Take 5 Oreo balls out of the freezer (leave the rest in there so they stay cold). Place 1 Oreo ball on a fork and dip it into the melted white chocolate.

When you lift it out of the chocolate tap the fork gently against the side of the mug several times to get off the excess chocolate.

Place the dipped ball on flat surface lined with wax paper or parchment paper. Repeat until all balls (including the ones still in the freezer) have been dipped in white chocolate. Let them sit until the chocolate is fully hardened.

Step 6 – Decorate. To decorate your cookies melt colored melts in the microwave in the same way you did for the white candy melts.

You’ll want at least 1 color for the eyes, black for the pupils, red for the veins.

Place the melted chocolate in a sandwich baggie and snip off the tip of one corner. Use the chocolate to draw the iris of the eye on the Oreo cookie balls. Just make a solid circle. Do this for all of the balls.

Next place the melted black candy melts in a separate bag and snip off the corner. Place a dot of black in the center of each colored circle.

Finally, place the melted red candy melts in a separate bag and snip off the corner. Draw on the veins onto your eyes.

Let chocolate harden completely.

Step 7 – Serve or store. Once you are done decorating you can serve immediately or you can place the finished Oreo balls in an airtight container. Place a piece of wax paper between each layer. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or store in the freezer for up to 2 months.

Do You Put Oreo Ball in the Fridge or Freezer?

Yes, you will put the Oreo balls in the freezer when they are chilling before dipping and you can store them in either the refrigerator or the freezer once you have finished.

Do Oreo Balls Have to Stay in the Fridge?

Yes, because Oreo balls have cream cheese in them they should be stored in the refrigerator before serving. The FDA says that cream cheese should not be out at room temperature for more than 2 hours.

If you’re serving them at a party we suggest putting a portion of them out on the table for guests and refilling as needed so that the excess can remain in the refrigerator.

How Long Can Oreo Balls Be Left Out?

Oreo balls can be left out at room temperature for up to two hours.
