These Oreo balls are made with sweetened condensed milk instead of cream cheese. The results are everything you would want for the to be. Make a batch this Christmas to see for yourself!
Oreo balls are a fun, rich, no bake treat that are a must have at the holidays. This version uses condensed milk to make them extra delicious.
They are just as easy to make as the original cream cheese version but they are even more delicious. The texture of the filling is amazing too.
You know we are big fans of condensed milk around here, so of course we had to use a can to make cookie truffles. It was such a great way to hold all of those cookie crumbs together.
Making the Oreo truffles
Start with a family size pack of Oreos or similar chocolate sandwich cookies. We used double stuf, but you can use whatever you have.
Pulse them in your food processor until the cookies are crumbs. Now start by adding about 3/4 cup of condensed milk.
Keep adding condensed milk and pulsing a few times until the mixture comes together into a dough like consistency. Try rolling a bit into a ball, if it holds together you’re ready to proceed.
If the mixture crumbles when you roll it, add a little bit more condensed milk and try again. You want to stop as soon as it holds together, adding too much condensed milk will make for sticky hands later!
Now use a small cookie scoop to portion out 1 Tablespoon of the mixture. Roll it into a ball and place it on a wax or parchment paper lined sheet pan.
If you don’t have a cookie scoop, don’t despair. The balls don’t have to be perfect, make them any size you want.
Once the balls are all rolled, put the pan in the freezer for at least a half hour. Then it’s time to dip.
We always use either white chocolate or almond bark for Oreo balls. But you can use milk or dark chocolate if you prefer.
I like to use a double boiler to melt the coating. It allows me to keep it warm throughout the whole process despite the truffles being frozen.
You can microwave the chocolate if you prefer. Just be sure to warm it slowly, it is easy to scorch chocolate in the microwave.
If you notice the chocolate is getting too thick after dipping several, just put it back in the microwave for 10 seconds or so and get back at it.
Place the dipped balls back on the wax or parchment paper and top with sprinkles if desired. Then allow to set up completely before moving to a storage container.
You can store the Oreo balls at room temperature for up to three days. Refrigerate them for up to three weeks or freeze for up to three months.
