WHY USE OREOS?

Oreo cookies provide a classic cookie crumble, and the filling helps all those fine crumbs stick together. Cookies and cream is also at the top of many people’s “favorite flavors” list. As a busy mom, and especially at this time of year, I like to find quick recipes with a wide appeal like this to create fun treats for parties and gatherings.

This Christmas cake ball recipe is so much fun to make! These bite-sized treats are also really easy to customize for all kinds of parties and events! I have taken to making them and immediately hiding them in the freezer, so that they don’t all get eaten right away – they are just that good!

7. Remove the dough from the fridge and roll into tablespoon sized balls. Tip: a small cookie scoop can help to get uniform-sized balls.

8. Place balls in the freezer for at least 1 hour to chill.

9. Melt the white candy wafers in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 15 to 30 second intervals, checking and stirring each time so that the chocolate doesn’t burn.

10. Remove the cake balls from the freezer and dip them in the melted white chocolate. Tip: use a fork for dipping to help the excess chocolate coating drip from each ball.

11. Place cake balls on the prepared baking sheet and immediately top with Christmas sprinkles, before the coating sets.

12. Place the chocolate balls in the fridge and allow them to harden completely before serving.

Turn this recipe into easy Christmas cake pops by adding a little bit of melted chocolate to the end of a cake pop stick, placing the stick into the ball, and then dipping the entire cake ball into the melted chocolate chips.

TIPS FOR MAKING THESE SWEET TREATS:

  • Use Wilton candy melts for best results, the wafer chocolate melts the best. Add one teaspoon of coconut oil to other melted chocolate chips to help them melt and pour better.
  • Place the chocolate covered treat on a parchment lined baking sheet for easy moving and transporting before the chocolate has hardened.
  • Place the chocolate balls in the fridge or freezer to completely cool before serving.

SOME OF MY KITCHEN ESSENTIALS:

Easy Christmas Oreo Cake Balls

Tips and tricks:

  • If you don’t have a stand mixer, use a hand mixer or an electric mixer.
  • For perfect cake pops that maintain a nice ball shape, stand the lollipop sticks up in a styrofoam block while the coating is setting.
  • Make reindeer cake pops using a dark chocolate coating, pretzel antlers, and a red M&M for the nose.
  • You could also try making snowman cake pops or even Christmas trees!
  • Don’t want to use Oreos? Make a boxed cake mix. Crumble cake and add store-bought or homemade frosting, mixing well. This mixture can then be used in exactly the same way.
