There is nothin' better than a chocolate covered oreo cookie ball! These oreo balls are rich and decadent. I may try using Neufchatel cream cheese the next time. I think, as with most of these cake pops, they taste better the next day or so. If they can last that long! :)

How To Make chocolate covered oreo balls

  • 1
    In a food processor or blender, grind the oreo cookies until fine.
  • 2
    In a large bowl mix oreo crumbs, confectioners sugar and cream cheese using an electric mixer, until well blended.
  • 3
    Roll into walnut-sized balls, place on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper and refrigerate for an hour or when it is firm.
  • 4
    While you are waiting, bring water to a boil in a double boiler. Remove from heat and melt 3 to 4 chunks of chocolate bark, stirring constantly. Be sure that there are no lumps.
  • 5
    If you are making bonbons, stick a toothpick into the oreo ball and dip it into the melted chocolate bark.
  • 6
    Let the excess drip off and place onto a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper to set.
  • 7
    If you are using lollipop sticks, dip the tip of the stick into the melted chocolate and insert it into the oreo ball no more than half way.
  • 8
    Dip the oreo ball into the melted chocolate, be sure that you cover the base of the ball and 1/4 of an inch up the stick.
  • 9
    This helps secure the ball to the stick while the coating sets.
  • 10
    Gently tap the stick on the side of the bowl to get the excess off.
  • 11
    Sprinkle candy or tiny candy decorations onto the oreo ball while it is still wet.
  • 12
    Place the oreo ball into a styrofoam block to dry and set.
