Melted Snowmen Oreo Balls
Melted Snowmen Oreo Balls are festive and a great addition to any holiday party. I guarantee they’ll be the first to go. Most people know these as chocolate Oreo Truffles but whatever you call them, these Melted Snowmen Oreos Balls are a Christmas dessert recipe that is always a hit.
MELTED SNOWMEN OREO BALLS
Oreo truffles are one of my all time favorite desserts. I can pop about 20 and then start to feel guilty.
I always bring them to parties because people just can’t get enough. Nabisco asked me to make their holiday version of these and these melted snowmen Oreo balls couldn’t get any cuter.
Start by making your Oreo truffles. Mix the cream cheese and crushed Oreos and form them into balls. Place them in the freezer to get hard. You can do this step way ahead to save time.
Once they’re frozen, dip them in your melted candy coating. In the past I’ve dipped mine in milk chocolate so I didn’t have to mess with getting any of the Oreo in the white coating.
But for these snowman we obviously want to use a white coating like Candiquik or almond bark. Melt it in batches so you don’t leave the trail of Oreos in the coating after a lot of dipping. Usually with Oreo truffles you have to dip them and then shake off the excess coating to get a nice round ball. The great thing about these is you don’t have to worry about that.
Once you’ve dipped them let the coating pool at the bottom to give you the melting snowman effect. These mini Oreos work perfectly for the snowman’s hat. You can decorate the faces with frosting or even use sprinkles for the eyes and nose. I used the frosting in the tubes in the baking aisle.
Just make sure after you decorate them, stick them in the fridge so the faces can harden. These take a little time but my kids loved them!

Melting Snowman Oreo Balls
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 36 OREO Cookies, (regular size), finely crushed
- 16 oz vanilla candy coating, , melted (like Candiquick or almond bark)
- 48 Mini OREO Bite Size Cookies
- decorations: decorating icing or gel; multi-colored sprinkles
- Mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs until well blended. I like to crush the Oreos in a food processor and then add the cream cheese and process it together. It can also be done by hand though.
- Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls; place in single layer in shallow pan. Some readers have stuck toothpicks in the top before freezing for easier dipping later. Freeze for at least 20 minutes. They can be frozen for longer. Dip balls in melted coating (see note); I do this by using a fork and tapping the fork on the bowl of my candy coating to remove some of the extra coating. If you used the toothpick option dip balls and then gently remove the toothpick and fill in the hole with melted candy coating. Place in shallow waxed paper-lined pan, allowing excess coating to pool at bottom of each ball.
- Chill balls until coating is set.
- Decorate with remaining ingredients as shown in photo. You can use the candy coating to adhere the hat to the head. Place in the fridge immediately to set up the decorations.
- Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Keep refrigerated.
I like to divide my coating into half or fourths so that if for some reason dark oreo bits get in one bowl you have others as back up. You can even dip them twice. Once in a layer and if it has oreo bits, oh well. The second time dip them in a fresh melting coating bowl and then there are no crumbs to worry about. I only had to dip these once but in the past I've had oreo bits sneak in my white coating
This is offensive. Why do you make a white dessert instead of offering a Black option? Instead you stick some brown hat on a white snow whatever it is.
This blog is so racist. This Jim Crow snack.
Black Lives Matter and Black Desserts Matter!
Can’t you make a brownie instead of stuffing white stuff in my face?
When Black Power takes over this country whitebread people like you and your hidden racist recipes will be banned.
What do you use for the eyes and mouth? I used writing icing and it doesn’t harden so if you touch it it rubs away.
That’s what I use. I guess I wasn’t planning on people touching or rubbing just eating?
Making these a few days ahead of time. Do they need to remain refrigerated once they are finished?
I refrigerate them
Do these have to stay refrigerated?
They should yes
Mine didn’t come out looking like yours. I made a half-batch of these, using generic vanilla (yellow colored) cookies, 1/2 package, and a half block (4 oz) of Neufchetel Cheese, the 1/3 less fat cream cheese. I also put a teaspoon of peppermint flavoring in there. I didn’t seem to get a nice layer of chocolate, so I drizzled additional chocolate over the top. It hardened before it could run down the sides, so it looks like they have hair. I colored some of them with colored frosting to make it look more like hair. Mine are HILARIOUS looking. I’m sure they will be well received.
Oh my gosh I wish I could see
How long do these last? I’d like to make a couple of days in advance of a party. TIA.
They don’t last long if they are in my fridge. Yes they are that tasty!
Can you use white chocolate as the outside??
Yes, it just doesn’t melt as well. I would add oil or butter to thin out the white chocolate.
can you use golden oreo’s intead of the chocolate ones ?
Yes! That would be great.
SIMPLY ADORABLE, BUT – ANY CHANCE THERE IS A GOOD SUB FOR THE
CREAMCHEESE??????????????? MAKING FOR BROTHER THAT REALLY
DOESN’T LIKE CREAMCHEESE…………………………IDEAS????????????????
I ENJOY YOUR RECIPES/SITE VERY MUCH!
I going to try this with a little vanilla pudding to hold them together, or cool whip or both lol. My boys wont do cream cheese either
Cream cheese makes me. I promise they won’t know it’s in there.
You don’t taste the cream cheese
Mascarpone cheese and whipped heavy cream sweeten with powered sugar if you’d like
Can we use graham crackers instead of oreos?
Yes. Different result but you could.
So the recipe never said if you crumble the WHOLE OREO COOKIE (outer chocolate cookie AND the inner white cream part) or if you crumble ONLY the outer chocolate cookie part.
PLEASE CAN YOU LET ME KNOW?
Sorry Ramona if it was unclear. The ingredients list Oreo cookies and that means whole unless specified. So yes, use the entire cookie crushed.
I plan on making these for this coming weekend. Can I make the ball part Friday? And decorate Saturday? After they freeze for the hour to harden, should I move them to the fridge until I am ready to decorate. Also if I wanted to make the whole thing on Friday will they still be tasty come Sunday? The hat Oreo won’t go natsy ?
When you say you can freeze these, do you mean completely done, faces and all, or do you just freeze the Oreo balls and then dip them in the white chocolate and decorate just when you need them? I’d love to be able to make them up completely now and then just pull them out to add a few to a cookie plate.
You can do it either way, You can freeze the balls for a while. The toppings might be a little harder to keep in tact.
Can i make these. And keep them in a jar until Christmas 🌴
I would freeze them!
Making them is super easy. I made them with my three-year-old grandson and he loved making them. decorating is more of a challenge with young kids but still fun.
I love theses not only are they cute as can be, they are very good. The first time I made them was for my daughter’s preschool Christmas party and there was two left. I’m going to make them got my work Christmas party!
Awesome. A bit of work but delightful!
Has anyone tried the golden Oreos?
How long in advance can you freeze the balls?
Love the melted snowmen recipe, I had not heard of Oreo truffles, but sound delicious. If anyone opts to use the toothpick dip method, just push the toothpick in at the angle you are going to place the mini oreo hat and you will not have to worry about filling in the hole. The hat will cover it.
Great tip. Thanks!
I go to a thing at church on tuesday call In-joy and we are going to have a christmas party and this is the perfect thing to bring. Should I make the snow man eyes black or blue like you have them. I’m asking because I never seen blue eyes on a snow man before. One more thing should I put black dots for the mouth or just a smile face? Please help me and tell me. Thanks
I would do black if that’s what you think snowmen have. The face is up to you.
can you use anything besides cream cheese to mix with oreos
Sorry no. It’s kind of the base of the whole recipe and they won’t stay together without it.
I wonder if buttercream frosting would work as a substitute? I haven’t tried it, but it works for cake balls. Might be worth a shot if you can’t use cream cheese.
If I do these a few days in advance and leave in the fridge, will the coating melt if my daughter brings them to school in the morning and are not refrigerated? Her bake sale is in the afternoon.
Nope. The coating is hard and will not melt.
Question: do you chop the entire Oreo, or do you have to remove the venter frosting?
Center frosting. Sorry!
The whole cookie
Take the entire Oreo and crush it to fine crumbs.
Thank you very much christmas is coming so i want to try this recipes. I will be willing to make my family happy by using this as a reference of what i have to make. thank you
I love the description at the top of the recipe:

These Baked Chicken Chimichangas are a healthier twist on the old classic chimichanga.
I didn’t know they were chimichangas! 😂
On the other hand these look delicious.
Bug in the recipe card. Looks like it pulled the description from another recipe.
My daughter and I made these tonight for a Christmas party. Not only were they fun, but they were a huge hit! We will definitely be making them again.
Would love to see a pic of them!
I’ve been wanting to try to make these since I saw them and finally decided to give them a whirl. I too had trouble getting the coating smooth. They were smooth enough tho to decorate and i think look a bit more like they are melting with the imperfections. I ll make them again because they are just so darn cute, and I imagine practice will make perfect. Thanks for sharing.
What kind of coating did you use?
I just made finished making them an put in the fridge to set icing I need them for tomorrow should I put then in the freezer overnight?
Fridge is fine for a couple of days.
Just made these for a cookie exchange, and won! Thank you so much for a tasty and easy recipe!
Amazing! You must be talented!
Can these be frozen for a week? Thank you 🙂
Yes, they can totally be frozen.
How do you put the face on? I’m a novice. 🙄😕😂
I used gel frostings. They’re in the baking aisle.
Today we’re going to talk about MINI RED VELVET CHEESECAKES.
I share your article on my site.
Good post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon everyday.
It’s always useful to read content from other writers and use something from other web sites.
I make Oreo balls year round, yet have never observed any so innovatively done. I get a kick out of the chance to utilize the red peppermint cream Oreos that can be found in the stores soon to give a merry turn to mine.
I have another article like this observe here
I share your article on my site.
Great christmas :p I love it
This site truly has all of the information and facts I wanted concerning this
subject and didn’t know who to ask.
I would like to make these so they don’t have to be refrigerated. What could I use instead of cream cheese?
The cream cheese is what makes these so good.
Instagram is a mobile, desktop, and Internet-based photo-sharing application and service that allows users to share pictures and videos either publicly, or privately to pre-approved followers.Are you frustrated that you don’t have many Instagram followers? If you want to get Instagram famous, you need to focus on ways to get your photos noticed. When I first signed up to Instagram, I really struggled to get my first 30 followers. Even my best photos were getting only a few likes, and I wasn’t getting any feedback on my photos. That’s when I decided it was time to get popular on Instagram and get the site to Instagram followers.
Very interesting and yummy recipe.
Looks like I can not eat it, these are so cute.
I love all your recipes. You are a fantastic baker. How do you get the white chocolate to look so smooth. Maybe the chocolate melts are different here in Newfoundland Canada. I can’t get them looking good at all It seems like the coating are too thick.
I am from Newfoundland Canada. You may have heard about us during the 911 crises.
You are a fantastic baker!
I definitely have the best luck with Almond Bark or Candiquik vanilla coating. I do not like the melts as much.
How do you get the gel to dry? When I use those tubes it never drys to touch.
If you freeze them it will set.

Could you use the vanilla Oreos or the lemon Oreos? You wouldn’t have to worry about the chocolate getting in the white. Have you tried this and if so were they as good?
You totally can!
