Cherry Oreo Cookie Balls

1 hour 30 minutes

20 minutes prep


  • 1/3 cup finely chopped candy canes (about 6 small), divided
  • 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 36 Oreo Cookies, finely crushed
  • 4 oz package semi-sweet chocolate broken into pieces, melted


  • Reserve 1 Tbsp chopped candy cane. Mix remaiing candy cane with cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended.
  • Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 minutes.
  • Dip cookie balls in melted chocolate, place on waxed paper- covered rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with reserved candy cane.
  • Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.

*I used cherry candy canes, peppermint would be a great classic option.

*I used the food processor to process Oreo cookies, then mixer to combine cookies, with cream cheese and candy cane.

I used almond extract to intensify the cherry flavor. You could use any flavor extract if you didn’t have candy canes.
