Reese’s Oreo Balls

Indulge in these decadent Reese’s Oreo Balls, a delightful fusion of creamy peanut butter, rich chocolate, and crunchy Oreo goodness. Perfect for any occasion, these treats are sure to impress.


  • 1 package Oreos (14.3 oz, preferably peanut butter Oreos)
  • 1 package cream cheese (8 oz, softened)
  • Peanut butter cups (one for each Oreo ball)
  • Chocolate Candiquik or almond bark
  • To top Oreo balls: chopped Reese’s pieces and/or peanut butter candy melts


1. Prepare the Ingredients Allow the cream cheese to come to room temperature.

2. Crush the Oreos Place half of the Oreos in a food processor or blender and pulse until you have fine Oreo crumbs. Add the remaining Oreos and pulse again until all are finely crushed.

3. Combine with Cream Cheese Transfer the Oreo crumbs to a mixing bowl. Add the softened cream cheese and use a hand mixer to blend until well combined.

4. Form the Oreo Balls Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat. Use a small cookie scoop to form uniform Oreo balls. Place a peanut butter cup inside each Oreo ball, roll it into a ball, and place it on the baking sheet. Refrigerate the Oreo balls for 20 minutes.

5. Melt the Chocolate After 20 minutes, melt the chocolate Candiquik or almond bark in a small pot over low heat, stirring occasionally until completely melted.

6. Dip the Oreo Balls Remove the Oreo balls from the fridge. Dip each Oreo ball into the melted chocolate using a fork, allowing the excess chocolate to drip off. Place the dipped Oreo ball back on the silicone baking mat. Continue until all Oreo balls are coated. Let each Oreo ball sit for about 1 minute before sprinkling with chopped Reese’s pieces to ensure they adhere properly. If drizzling with peanut butter candy melts, allow the chocolate to set completely before doing so.

7. Final Touches Allow the Oreo balls to harden at room temperature. Serve and enjoy.

Serving Tips

  1. Presentation: Arrange the Oreo balls on a decorative plate or tiered dessert stand for an eye-catching display. Garnish with extra chopped Reese’s pieces for added flair.
  2. Accompaniments: Serve with a variety of drinks such as milk, coffee, or hot chocolate to complement the rich flavors of the Oreo balls.
  3. Temperature: These treats are best enjoyed at room temperature. Allow them to sit out for a few minutes if they’ve been stored in the fridge.

Storage Tips

  1. Refrigeration: Store the Oreo balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. This helps maintain their texture and freshness.
  2. Freezing: For longer storage, freeze the Oreo balls in a single layer on a baking sheet. Once frozen, transfer them to a freezer-safe bag or container. They can be frozen for up to 2 months.
  3. Defrosting: When ready to enjoy, remove the Oreo balls from the freezer and let them thaw in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. They can also be enjoyed slightly chilled straight from the freezer for a firmer texture.
  4. Preventing Moisture: Place a piece of parchment paper between layers of Oreo balls in the storage container to prevent them from sticking together and to absorb any excess moisture.
  5. Avoiding Odor Absorption: Ensure the container is tightly sealed to prevent the Oreo balls from absorbing any unwanted odors from the refrigerator or freezer.
