The holiday season has officially started and I couldn’t be happier! Now that the weather is cooler and the leaves are changing, I can’t wait to start pulling out our decorations and spending time with family and friends.
This year, our gatherings might not be as big, may be spaced out, or may include tons of video calls instead of home visits, but we can still celebrate our traditions all the same!
One of my favorite traditions is decorating our Christmas tree.
When my husband and I were first engaged, we decided that we would give each other a Christmas tree ornament that represented our year together.
But these would be the only ones that we would hang on the family tree. The tree was pretty sparse looking those first few years with only a handful of ornaments.
As our family grew, our tree filled up pretty quickly and now we are running out of space! My heart and my tree are full every year.
So, in honor of our family ornament tradition, I am sharing a recipe for OREO Cookie Ball Ornaments!
These are super fun and easy to make and everyone can get involved. The best thing about them is they are so delicious and perfect for sharing with your friends and family. I also love that they are so quick to create!
Maybe you can tell them about your favorite holiday traditions, like our ornament one, while you share an OREO Cookie Ball Ornament with them!

How to make OREO truffle balls
STEP ONE: Place the OREO cookies in the bowl of the food processor. Pulse until the cookies are fine crumbs.
STEP TWO: Add the cream cheese to the crushed OREO cookie crumbs and pulse until completely blended.
STEP THREE: Scoop the dough into 1 inch balls (1 tablespoon) and place on a baking sheet with parchment paper. Once all the dough is scooped, roll the balls to smooth out the circle shape. Chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to 1 hour.
STEP FOUR: Melt the candy coating according to package directions. Dip the dough balls one at a time into the candy coating, letting the excess chocolate drip off and the candy start to set.
STEP FIVE: Roll the candy dipped truffle balls into desired sprinkles to coat. Place back on baking sheet and let set up completely. Add candy decorations if desired. Store in the refrigerator until ready to share! Quick and easy!
Tips for perfect OREO Cookie Balls
- Don’t freeze the truffles just chill them in the refrigerator. Having them too cold will make the candy-coating crack after they set.
- Use plenty of plates and bowls for your decorations. Once I double dipped the balls, I would add some sprinkles on top, then roll it upside down into the bowl of sprinkles. Then shake or roll to completely coat them.
- If the sprinkles aren’t bright enough, buy some glitter spray to fill in the gaps.
- Purchase your ingredients from the cream cheese, OREO cookies, and candy coating at your local Publix. You can find the OREO cookies in the cookie/cracker aisle!
- Use white chocolate chips or almond bark if you can’t find the candy wafers.
- Don’t place these on wax paper as the melted candy coating will stick to it.
