We are excited to with OREO on a sponsored campaign to feature their OREO Cookie Ball Recipe!
Are you getting ready for the holiday season? With Thanksgiving being later this year it feels like we need to get started on holiday planning a little earlier. The fall air here in Virginia has us longing for nights besides the fire place knowing it snowing outside. Brian and I both love snow. Even if I don’t love the drama and process the kids create when they want to go play in the snow, I love the snow. Since we live further out now, I have learned to love the sound of snow. You can step out on the porch and hear it piling up … that is one of my favorite sounds for sure.
To share our love of snow, we decided to put a twist on the OREO Cookie Balls recipe to make Snowy OREO Cookie Balls!
Snowy OREO Cookie Balls
- 1 pkg. (8 oz.) brick cream cheese, softened
- 36 OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 3 cups)
- 24 oz. (2 packages) semi-sweet white baking chocolate discs, melted
- 1 bag of Sweetened Shredded Coconut
MIX cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended.
SHAPE into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 minutes (minimum … I found that freezer for longer was helpful!)
SPREAD shredded coconut on the wax paper-lined cookie sheet.
DIP balls in melted chocolate.
SPRINKLE the OREO Cookie Balls with the shredded coconut.
REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.
We love how simple this recipe is. You can get the kids to help to break up the OREO cookies or you can take your holiday stress out on them! These are perfect for a party or to drop off to a friend as a great Christmas gift.

Oh these look and sound so good. You can never go wrong with Oreo’s. I like how you also dipped a few strawberries to add a little color to the plate. Thanks for the recipe. I can’t wait to try these.

I love the idea of using shredding coconut to simulate snow.
While I am generally morally opposed to crushing up a delicious cookie and using it as an ingredient in another recipe, I am somewhat intrigued by the idea. My concern would be that by the time I opened the oreos and stole a few here and there I would not have enough oreos left to make the recipe while still following the directions. I guess that means I will need two bags of oreos.
David – two bags of OREOs is key. We had two on hand for sure. We justified it as back-up but it was really back-up for the ones eaten while the cookie balls were in the freezer and fridge! 😉 Let us know if you try the recipe out!

Coconut and chocolate. That’s where you had me.
I like this recipe…looks like something we can do together. How are we going to wait an hour to eat them though? 😉
Ooh these sound delicious
Looks so yummy! I am going to make this this weekend
