Easy and fun no-bake Ghost Oreo Balls are perfect for a Halloween party. With just four ingredients, they’ll be ready in no time!
I have made these Oreo Balls before, but I’m never quite sure what to call them – bon bons, balls, truffles? See Christmas Oreo Bon Bons, Chocolate Chip Oreo Bon Bons, Easter Egg Oreo Truffles, or Peanut Butter Cup Oreo Bon Bons.
Ghost Oreo Truffles
Whatever you call them, they’re easy and delicious.
This time, I dressed them up as ghosts.
My girls loved them and they’d be really cute to put a few into a little cellophane bag as a Halloween treat.
I first made these in 2017 and forgot to post them so when I found them on an old SD card, I reshot them and here we are.
Below is a list of the ingredients you’ll need to gather to make this recipe. Scroll all the way down for the full recipe card.
These balls are so easy to make. They’re no-bake and you just need three main ingredients – Oreos, cream cheese, and a chocolate coating.
To turn them into ghosts, you’ll also need either black decorating gel, or you can just melt some chocolate chips to draw on the faces. I gave a few candy eye balls as well. It is fun to give them their own personalities.
Equipment you’ll need
- Food Processor – I’ve had this mini food processor for years (it’s all I have room for) so I have to do most things in 2 batches, but it works great!
- Mixing Bowls – I love these grippy bottom mixing bowls so they don’t slip around.
- Small Cookie Scoop – This cookie scoop holds about 1 TB of the mix. Depending on which size scoop you use, will determine how many cookie balls you make.
- Baking Sheets – You’ll want lipped baking sheets so the balls don’t roll all over.
How to make Ghost Oreo Bal
- STEP ONE: Crush up your Oreos in a food processor. [If you don’t have a food processor, you can add the Oreos to a large freezer bag & crush the cookies with a rolling pin]. Pour the crumbs into a large mixing bowl and add the softened cream cheese. Use a hand mixer to fully combine the two.
- STEP TWO: Use a cookie scoop to scoop out the Oreo Balls and line them onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Once you have them all scooped out (it should make about 40 balls), pop them into the freezer for at least 30 minutes to chill.
- STEP THREE: Melt your chocolate wafers in a heat safe bowl. Poke each Oreo ball them with a toothpick, then dip them into the melted chocolate. Let the excess drip off then set them onto parchment paper to harden.
- STEP FOUR: Once hardened, use either melted chocolate or decorating gel to draw on the faces. Add on candy eye balls if you want.
What kind of chocolate should I use for the coating?
I used white vanilla melting wafers that Ghirardelli makes. I’ve seen them at most markets and even a giant bag at Sam’s Club that would easily get you though the holiday season.
You could also opt for white chocolate candy melts or Vanilla CandiQuik.
They melt down really smoothly so you shouldn’t have any issues. If it starts to thicken up, microwave it for a few more seconds, or add a bit of coconut oil or vegetable oil to thin it out a bit.
While you’re at it, you can easily make some Halloween Haystacks.
How to store them
Since these Oreo Balls have cream cheese in them, you should store them in an airtight container in the fridge. They’ll keep for a week (if they last that long!).
Can I freeze them?
Yes, you can freeze these balls and honestly, they’re delicious to eat frozen! Place them in a sealed freezer bag and they’ll last for a month or so.
