Oreo Balls: Easy No-Bake Cookies

Oreo Balls require no baking, and they are also easy to make.

Your food processor is the star in this show. Use it to crush chocolate crème cookies and blend in cream cheese.

The dough will be thick, but hey, that makes the cookie balls easier to roll and easier to dip into melted chocolate before chilling.

With a double dose of chocolate and the smoothness of cream cheese, watch out. These little confections can be addictive.  

Oreo Balls

Prep time: 20-30 minutes

Chilling time: 60 minutes

Makes about 4 dozen balls


1 package (16 ounces) chocolate and white crème sandwich cookies, like Oreos

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese

3-4 cups (18 - 24 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips or chocolate almond bark

2-3 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Using a food processor with a steel blade, crush the chocolate sandwich cookies until fine.

  2. Slice cream cheese into the food processor bowl. Pulse the cream cheese with cookie crumbs until they are well combined. The m

  3. Roll mixture into scant 1-inch balls. Place balls on a baking sheet line with waxed paper.  Set baking sheet in the refrigerator. Chill for one hour.

  4. Place the chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt chips in the microwave, heating them at 50% power for 30 second increments and stirring them with a spatula in between. Check melted chocolate consistency with a spoon to make sure it is not too thick. The chocolate should drip easily and smoothly from the spoon. If the consistency is too thick, add an additional 1 -2 teaspoons at a time and mix thoroughly until the chocolate flows. (Read more about melting chocolate chips successfully.)

  5. Use a spoon or a toothpick to dip balls into chocolate. Shake off excess chocolate. Set coated balls on waxed paper. Chill balls in the refrigerator until firm.

  6. Store balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Special Baking Tip for Oreo Balls

You may wish to coat Oreo Balls with a white chocolate coating rather than semi-sweet chocolate. You can also sprinkle extra crushed chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs on the coated cookies.
