Melting Snowman OREO Cookie Ball Recipe

These Melting Snowman Oreo Cookie Balls will be the easiest and cutest addition to your cookie tray!

My kiddo’s most favorite thing that I make are truffles…and by truffles I mean Oreo Cookie Balls.

You know the ones…one package of OREO cookies and one block of cream cheese covered in melted chocolate?

 

MY OTHER RECIPES

Yep.

All good stuff.

 

So he has been begging me for so long to make more Oreo Truffles.

This past weekend we went for it.

 

My one complaint about making truffles, is trying to make them look perfect.  So the two of us came up with an idea to make them where they could look a little messy and “melty” and have it all be part of the master plan.

 

Enter the Melted Snowman.

When I make truffles, I always seem to get the little pool of chocolate around the base, where it drips off…so we decided to take that up a notch!

We loved making these together…so fun!

Just crush your OREO cookies in a zip-top bag and pour the crumbs into a large mixing bowl.

Mix in a softened block of cream cheese and roll them into balls.

Chill the balls for a bit before dipping them.

While they were chilling we made little Snowman hats using a mini OREO and a Rolo candy…

When you’re ready get your melting candy ready.  I dropped about a tablespoon size onto parchment paper and created a little pool.  The I dipped the OREO ball in and tapped off the excess, placing the ball right on top of the “candy pool”…

We immediately used mini chocolate chips to create a face and a mini orange candy to make a nose…

You could place the hat on top of the Snowman’s head or even next to him.  We did some of both.

    Thank you for sharing! I was looking for something easy and stress free to make.I made with my daughter for a Girl Scout troop cookie exchange. We cut up Fruit Rollups to make scarfs around the next.

    Thanks for the adorable recipe. I did today and it came out great. Just wanted you to know I used the cherry licorice string as the scarf and it looks cute too 🙂

    Hi brill idea love it but I have never had cream cheese – what does it taste like?? Is it sweet or cheesy lol? Trying to judge who would like them that I know! X

    1. Shelly

      haha! It’s not cheesy, I promise and in the truffles you can’t taste it at all.. all you taste is the Oreo and the cream cheese gives it a little extra richness 🙂

    Do these need to be stored in the refrigerator at all times? I wanted to use them for a cookie exchange party, but don’t want them to go bad if people don’t put theirs in the fridge when they go home.
