Its such an easy treat to make that you’ll want to get your kids involved in creating these adorable goodies! My 6-year-old son help me make these.

Here is the easy OREO Cookie Ball Recipe:
- 1 pkg. (8 oz) brick cream cheese, softened
- 36 OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 3 cups)
- 4 pkg. (4 oz. each) semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted
- Mix the cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended. Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 minutes. Dip the balls in the melted chocolate; place in a single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan. Customize it with your own ingredient additions or decorative skills. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
To turn these classic OREO Cookie Balls into a delicious fall or Thanksgiving treat, I made a few simple adjustments to give them a fun fall flavor to mimic a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Instead of the traditional OREO’s I substituted Golden Oreos. To the crushed OREOS and cream cheese, I added a bit of instant coffee granules (1 tsp.) and pumpkin pie spice (1/2 tsp.). Additionally, instead of using the traditional Bakers Semi-Sweet Chocolate on the outside of the ball, I used orange candy melts (a 12 oz. pkg) flavored with a bit of pumpkin pie spice (1/2 tso.). I then topped them with melted white candy melts(about 4 oz.) to simulate whipped cream, and then sprinkled with a little extra pumpkin pie spice.
I cut traditional straws into thirds, yielding a 2 1/2 – 3″ mini-straw. I inserted the straws into the OREO Cookie Balls right after rolling them. I froze the balls with the straws inserted, which made dipping the balls into the candy coating really easy.
This Thanksgiving, make a batch of these fun, delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte OREO Cookie Balls. They are a great way to celebrate the season and give thanks for the many blessing we have in our life. Enjoy!
