Ingredients

  • 24 Oreos
  • 4 oz softened cream cheese
  • 10 oz white candy melts (Ghirardelli brand)
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream use only if Candy melts need to be thinned out

Instructions

Mix Oreos and cream cheese

  • Place 20 whole Oreos into a food processor and mix them at high speed until they get crushed down to a coarse powder.
  • Then add in 4 oz of (softened) cream cheese and pulse it again until it becomes one smooth and uniform texture.

Shape the cake balls

  • Now remove the blades out of the food processor making sure to scrape off any extra cake ball “dough” back inside. Now begin scooping out cake balls using a medium cookie scoop
  • Shape the balls in your hand and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, then freeze for 15 minutes.

Melt the candy melts

  • Now melt 10 oz of white candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl in 20-second intervals. To thin the candy coating out you can use hot cream but dipping aid chips work best. If you use Ghirardelli brand, they don’t need to be thinned out at all.

Dip the cake balls

  • Then take each Oreo cake ball and dip them into the melted candy melts using a fork. Then carefully transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment and let the chocolate coating set.
  • You can decorate the cake balls with streams of melted semi-sweet chocolate or crushed Oreos. If you want to add the crushed Oreos on top make sure to sprinkle them while the chocolate coating is still wet. If you wait too long the chocolate will set and the Oreo crumbs will not stick to it.

Notes

How to crush the Oreos
The easiest way to crush the Oreos for these cake balls is by pulsing them in a food processor on high until they are a powder. If you don't have a food processor, then you can also place them in a ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
Can I substitute the candy melts with chocolate chips?
Candy melts and chocolate chips have similar, but very different, flavors. And they also melt differently. If you prefer to use chocolate chips, do this by warming them in a microwave-safe bowl at 20-second intervals. Always be cautious not to overheat and scorch the chocolate.
