Improving on Perfection: The Oreo Cookie Ball for the Cookie Exchange


“Oreo truffle” by Madlyn (2011) via Morguefile.

I still remember the first time that I had one of these. My niece who was twelve at the time had come over to my parents’ house with a tray of them. I bit into the crunchy, chocolate shell which gave way to a luscious Oreo cream cheese center. It was an experience. Oreos are perfection, but this little cookie might even be an improvement on them. One cookie turned into two and then four and I sat wondering how I many I could get away with eating before somebody noticed!

A word of warning from your sister in Christ: their compact size really lends to their eatability, so beware if you find yourself alone in a room with these!

Recipe from


-8 oz. cream cheese, softened

-40 Oreos, finely crushed, divided

-4 pkg (4 oz. each), semi-sweet baking chocolate, broken into pieces, melted


-Mix cream cheese and 3 cups cookie crumbs until blended.

-Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 minutes. Dip balls in melted chocolate; place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan. Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.

-Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
