 Who loves to celebrate the big game?!  Who doesn’t even know what’s going on in the game but LOVES to get together with friends and eat all the fun game day foods?!  That’s the group that I belong with.  I am a foodie through and through.  Any opportunity to get together with others and share food!  And what better food to share than OREOs?  Not to mention OREOs that are crushed up, mixed with cream cheese and decorated to look like footballs! These OREO Cookie Balls are a sure win!

These little treats are super cute.  And super easy!  All the ingredients can be found at Walmart.  Here’s a little picture of the lovely OREO display that Walmart offers.  So many options to choose from!  I went with a Peanut Butter OREO.  But really, you could use any OREO flavor that you want.  They have so many to choose from, and I always love trying out their seasonal flavors that they offer.

Give the OREOs a little time in the food processor to get them all crumbled up.  If you don’t have a food processor you could alleviate some stress by going at them in a sealed plastic bag and a rolling pin.  Either way, we need them in nice, fine crumbs.  Mix that up with some room temperature cream cheese.  This will give you a nice texture, they will be easy to shape and mold into whatever shape you want!

I took about a tablespoon of the cookie mixture and shaped them into little footballs.  Set them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and place them in the freezer to set for about 10 minutes.  Follow the directions on the chocolate to melt it, and just dip the OREO cookie balls into the chocolate.  I find the best way to do this is with a fork.  Then tap it against the side of the bowl to remove any excess.  Place the chocolate covered OREO cookie balls back onto the wax sheet to cool and set.

Once I had all the #OREOcookieballs dipped into the chocolate, I melted the white chocolate, again just follow the directions on the box.

Then using a piping bag filled with the white chocolate, and a Wilton 3 tip put the white laces on to look like a football.OREO Cookie Ball Footballs!  Get ready for the Big Game with these fun treats! #OREOcookieballs #ad

I was so happy with how cute these turned out.  And they were apparently a huge win because they didn’t last long around here!  Can’t wait to make another batch when it comes time for the big game!

5 from 2 votes

Ingredients

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 36 OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 3 cups)
  • 3 (4 oz) semi sweet chocolate bars, coarsely chopped
  • 1 ¼ tsp coconut oil, divided
  • 4 oz white chocolate, coarsely chopped

Instructions

  • Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet. Set aside.
  • Add cookies to a food processor and pulse until only crumbs.
  • MIX cream cheese with a hand mixer until smooth and creamy, then add in the cookie crumbs and stir together until combined.
  • Roll cookie truffle dough into 1-inch balls, using approximately 1 tablespoon of dough, and shape into an oval football shape. Place on prepared baking sheet. Continue until all truffle dough is used. You should have about 32-35 balls total. Place in freezer to chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • MELT the chocolate during the last few minutes of the chilling time. You can melt it in a double boiler or the microwave. If using the microwave: place the chocolate and 1 tsp of oil in a medium heat-proof bowl. Melt in 20 second increments stirring after each time increment until completely melted and smooth. Let the warm chocolate sit for 5 minutes to slightly cool before dipping.
  • Remove cookie truffles from the freezer. Working with 1 at a time, dip into the chocolate, then carefully lift out using a fork. Tap the fork gently on the side of the bowl to remove excess chocolate. Use a toothpick or another fork to help you slide the truffle off of the fork and back onto the baking sheet.
  • Melt the white chocolate by adding to a small heat-proof bowl with 1/4 teaspoon of coconut oil. You can melt in a double-broiler or the microwave. If using the microwave follow the same instructions from melting the chocolate.
  • Add the white chocolate to a piping bag fitted with a small tip, then draw the lines on top of the football truffles to decorate.
  • Refrigerate the truffles for at least 30 minutes before serving.
