It’s not just Christmas without the themed desserts! Our family loves to make these cute Christmas Oreo Ornament Balls, and they’re such a hit with friends and family, too.

These Oreo truffles are a bite size, no bake dessert filled with soft Oreo cheesecake on the inside and coated with white chocolate goodness on the outside. They’re perfect for special occasions like Christmas parties, potlucks, school functions and more.

This is also a great make-ahead recipe, as you can make them in advance and store them in the fridge for up to 3 weeks until you need them (and 2 to 3 months in the freezer)!

They’re so fun to make, and even the kids can help with these sweet treat. This is also technically a no bake Christmas recipe, as you can melt the white chocolate in the microwave!

Ingredients Needed for Christmas Oreo Ornament Balls

All you need to make these Christmas Oreo truffles are a few simple ingredients you can find in your local grocery store. You can also scroll down to the full recipe card with all of the measurements and complete Oreo balls recipe!

  • 1 package of crushed Oreo cookies (regular Oreos are perfect)
  • Softened cream cheese
  • Mini white chocolate chips, melted
  • Mini Reese’s peanut butter cups
  • Red and green sprinkles (or the holiday color combo of your choice)

I also recommend using a small cookie scoop like this to make this recipe easier (and a little less messy).

You can experiment with different types of truffles for your sweet tooth by changing up the ingredients. For this easy recipe I used traditional Oreos for my crushed Oreos, but mint Oreos are a fun way to add an easy twist.

You can crush candy canes or peppermint to sprinkle on top of the melted chocolate dipped Oreo to create a peppermint version! You can also use green candy melts, red candy melts or white candy melts to form a candy coating instead of a chocolate one, or use food coloring to change up the color of the melted white chocolate.

This recipe calls for an entire package of Oreos.

How to Make Christmas Oreo Truffles

This recipe takes a little active time, but the payoff is so worth it with how adorable these turn out!

Start by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper and set aside.

Use a food processor to finely crush the Oreos. If you don’t have a food processor, you can also place the Oreos into a freezer bag and crush them into Oreo crumbs that way! The crushed cookies need to be fine crumbs to make the Oreo cream cheese balls blend together easily.

Blend together the softened cream cheese and crushed Oreo cookie crumbs until well combined.

Use a small cookie scoop like this to form the mixture into small balls (1 inch balls) and place in a single layer on the prepared cookie sheet. If you need to, you can roll them in between your hands to firm up the ball shape.

Transfer the balls to the refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour, or place in the freezer for 30 minutes to 60 minutes.

To melt the chocolate, place the pieces into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 20 second to 30-second intervals, stirring well in between. Continue until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

Dip each Oreo ball in the melted chocolate, moving it around to fully coat it. Remove the coated ball from the chocolate with a fork. Gently tap the fork on the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate, then transfer the coated ball onto a piece of wax paper.

Immediately top the dipped ball with one Reese’s peanut butter cup and decorate with red and green sprinkles.

Allow the balls to sit at harden in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes, then serve!

Store leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 2-3 weeks. These Christmas Oreos are the perfect treat to munch on throughout the holiday season, and can be packaged up to make a sweet Christmas gift, too.

I hope you love these Christmas Oreo balls!
