Oreo Cake Balls Recipe - Can you eat just one?

Do you really think that you could just eat ONE of these? If so then you are a better person than I! My girls know that  these will no longer be made at "SusieQTpies Cafe" by me!  I've banned them from my kitchen!

Of course this isn't true but they should be illegal.  I've made a few different cake balls but these by far are the easiest and most deadly!  They truly melt in your mouth.

Oreo Cake Balls (Happy 100th Birthday Oreo 3/6/12)


1 pkg. Oreo cookies
3/4-1 pkg cream cheese, soften to room temp.
1 pkg. white almond bark

*Finely crush the entire Oreos.  Put aside 1/3 cup and the rest goes in a large mixing bowl. 
(Instead of topping with the crushed oreos you can also top with colorful sprinkles)


*Drop in 3/4 of the cream cheese brick and mix well.   The mixing does best if you put on disposable kitchen gloves and mix with your hands.  If you don't feel that the mixture is wet enough, use more cream cheese.  The first time I made these I used all the cream cheese.  I feel the best texture is a little less... approx. 3/4 of the brick.  These need to roll up into balls.  So do a test and if you think it keeps the ball shape then you have enough cream cheese.  
* Roll into equal bite-sized shaped balls. Put them on a cookie sheet or container that will fit in your freezer.  You might need to use 2 containers.  I keep them close but not touching.  If you want to skip the freezer step then at least put them in the fridge so they chill and don't fall apart when you dip them. 
*Freeze for 1-2 hours before dipping in melted chocolate. I stick a toothpick in each ball right before dipping.  Once I put the dipped cake ball on the pan I pull out the toothpick.  Sometimes it doesn't come right out so I use another toothpick to help guide it out. (click here to see photos of dipping the cake balls)
*Melt chocolate in the microwave or in a little electric melting pot.  I only melt 1/4-1/2 pkg at a time so it doesn't harden while I'm dipping.  Over the coarse of dipping, you can rewarm and melt more in the same container.  Sometimes, if needed, I'll add no more than 1 Tbsp of cooking oil over the coarse of the entire bar of almond bark to keep it smooth.  For this one batch you probably will only use about 1/4 of the bar but you always have to melt more than what is needed so you have enough to dip.

*As you finish dipping, put each one on a aluminum foil lined pan.  This will allow the cake balls to come off easily when dried.  Top each ball with a little bit of Oreo after you put on pan.  


Here are a few photos.  If you have any questions on these, don't hesitate to ask.  If you have made some of these or any other flavor of cake balls then link them up below!  
 
 
So do you think that you can stop at one?

  6. Hmmm, looks interesting. May just have to try them. Could they be dipped in chocolate chocolate instead of the almond bark? Or would that be overkill?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Martha... funny that you should ask that question. When I was making them my youngest said that they (her and her sisters) don't like the white almond bark and can I please use the chocolate. Weeeellllll I said, sorry mom is going to use the white.
    The white is perfect for these "but" you can use chocolate.

    The girls and their friends love it when I make the chocolate cake/chocolate covering and the yellow cake/chocolate covering a lot.
    Everyone loved these, too.

  9. Do you use the oreos with the white stuffing or can you buy them without?

    ReplyDelete
  10. YES you crush the entire oreo...with stuffing. You need all of it. Just put in food processor and crush! Great question. Susie

  12. I realize these are older comments but I wanted to add that I make them with nutter butter cookies and OMG just as good as reese cups, maybe better.. I made about 120 of each (Oreo's & Nutter Butter) one week, of course they were gone in just couple days, I was giving them to friends and I ate my fair share too, but they are soo good, love the Oreo's dipped in milk choc too.

  18. I actually just made these last week! I found them ever so slightly too sweet (can't believe I've just typed that...TOO SWEET?!), but they were very popular with everybody else. And don't get me wrong...I certainly had my share of them! But I'm going to experiment with some variations on a basic cake ball this week, AND I'm gonna try your Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ball recipe tomorrow or the following day. MMMM!!

  19. Hi Heather!

    Yes, cake balls are too sweet! lol The ones made with the cake mix is less sweet. We love it with the yellow butter cake mix: http://cafescrapper-scrapsoflife.blogspot.com/2010/05/melt-in-your-mouth-cake-balls-recipe.html

    Thanks for stopping back in!

  20. We like them made with strawberry filled Oreos and coated in chocolate. But we call them Oreo Cheesecake Balls because they taste like a no bake cheesecake (which is the most commom sort here in Australia)

  21. Hi I wanna make these Oreo balls. I don't have a food processor, whats the best alternative to crush Oreos? Also, when I'm ready to store them, do they need to be refrigerated or just in a container at room temp? Thx

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hi JP- just put them in a baggie and smush with your hands, meat mallet, rolling pin, etc. They never last long enough to make it to the fridge! haha If they are going to be eaten within a day I would say that they don't need to be in the fridge.
    GOod luck! They are so easy to make!

  23. One more thing, once you dip these in the chocolate, u leave them on the pan to dry for how long? Im gonna make these for my hubby to take to work and I wanna give myself enough time. Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hiya!! These lil' things dry really quick. So while you are dipping them and putting them on the tray some will already be drying. It goes quick.

    Yay! Susie

  25. I would love to make these! They look absolutely delicious! Any suggestions to make without the cream cheese? I have a family with allergies.

  26. I just stumbled across this recipe. Thank you so much for posting! I'm making some for a friend's birthday.

    Approximately how many do you get when you personally make them (i.e. what is the yield)?

    Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hello! I was wondering how many this recipe yields? I am making tins of these for Christmas for family and friends and just needed to know how much supplies to buy! Thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  32. No, I'm quite sure I could not stop at just one. They're far too yummy.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I hate OREOS but these look Yumm-O! Thank you for sharing.

  34. How did yall crush the oreos? I was thinking to just put them in a plastic baggy and run a rolling pin across it since I dont have a food processor.

    ReplyDelete
  35. How did yall crush the oreos? I figured I could put them in a plastic baggy and use a rolling pin over it since I dont have a food processor.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yes Raegan you can crush with a rolling pin or a food processor! Whatever works best for yoU!!! nom nom nom

  37. Ive made these before, but with strawberry cream cheese and golden oreos instead

    ReplyDelete
  38. These look absolutely amazing and combine two of my favorite things: oreos and cake balls! That said, I don't think I could make these... I get oddly obsessive about Oreos and will eat them all immediately (so I never buy them). I imagine if I made these I would sit down and eat them all in one sitting. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I made them. And it was sooo sticky like frosting consistency..I added mkre orreas..no help..they are in the fridge now hoping they will harden a bit so I can roll them...any suggestions? I mixed it in the food processor and not by hand..maybe that was the problem ? Help !!!
