Recipe Variations

  • Instead of milk chocolate, you can use dark chocolate or white chocolate.
  • Feel free to use any flavor of Oreo that you’d like. For example, sometimes around the holidays, I like to use mint or peppermint Oreos.
  • You can make these for any holiday or celebration by changing the sprinkles.

Storage Tips

SERVE: These set up fairly quickly because the Oreo filling is frozen prior to dipping them into the melted chocolate. This means you can serve the Oreo Balls right away, or store them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve them.

STORE: Store the Oreo Balls in an airtight container and place in the fridge. They will stay fresh for up to three weeks. You can also leave the container on the counter at room temperature for up to three days. 

FREEZE: Place the Oreo Balls in an airtight container and place the container in the freezer. They will stay fresh for up to two months.
