What is undeniable is how delicious, crunchy and versatile they are, creating opportunities such as Oreo Fudge, Oreo Slice and Oreo Cheesecake.
The photo below shows you the ingredients you will need to make the recipe:
As you can see, the recipe calls for:
- Oreo biscuits: in Australia they are called Oreo Biscuits, in USA and other parts of the world, they can be known as Oreo cookies. They are the chocolate biscuits with cream layer which are hugely popular!
- cream cheese: these is the ingredient we need to ensure our Oreo balls stick together. You can purchase either the block or the spreadable tub. There is not a lot of difference between the two!
- chocolate sprinkles: we take the hard work out of this recipe by making Oreo balls that don't need to be coated in chocolate. Instead, we roll the balls in chocolate sprinkles, for a simple, no bake, easy decorating idea!
We use 2 standard size packets of Oreo cookies for this recipe.
If you are after a budget friendly option, you can get a cheaper 'Oreo inspired' version of similar biscuits at Aldi, which are called Chocolate Sandwich Cookies.
Here are the step by step instructions to make the recipe. We start by adding the biscuits (cookies) to the bowl of a food processor as shown in the photos below.
- add Oreos to the bowl of the food processor (photo 1)
- blitz the Oreos for 10 - 15 seconds to form fine crumbs (photo 2)
- add cream cheese to the blitzed biscuits (photo 3)
- blitz the biscuits and cream cheese together till combined (photo 4)
The aim when blitzing the biscuits is that they become a fine crumb and that there is no big bits of biscuits left.
This will only take 10 - 15 seconds and you can remove the lid of the food processor and visually check to see that they are blitzed enough.
Once you have blitzed the biscuits, dollop in the cream cheese and blitz again.
The mixture will form one large soft mix and when the cream cheese is consistently mixed into the biscuits, you can remove and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
- transfer biscuit mixture to mixing bowl (photo 5)
- use a cookie scoop, portion the mixture and roll into balls (photo 6)
- drop the Oreo balls into the sprinkles (photo 7)
- coat each ball in sprinkles and repeat for all balls (photo 8)
I like to portion out all of my Oreo balls with the cookie scoop and then roll them into the round balls. This saves time as you can simply do 1 task other the other.
Here is a photo to show you what I mean:
I recommend using a mini cookie scoop as it will make all of your balls the same size and it is also a great way to make the recipe and know exactly how many balls you can make and save that information for the next time and each other time you make them in the future.
These balls can be rolled in the sprinkles like in the above photos and then refridgerated until you need them.
They will last a couple of days in the fridge, but as they are seriously addictive this will depending on how much you can resist the temptation of them!

- use a mini cookie scoop to ensure all of your balls are the same size
