  • Twizzlers Pull N Peel: These are fun, easy-to-eat candies with a unique texture that makes them an exciting addition to any easy recipe. They add a chewy consistency and a pop of color to the dish.
  • Mini Peanut Butter Cups: Packed with the creamy richness of peanut butter and the smooth sweetness of chocolate, these mini cups provide a delightful flavor contrast.
  • White or Colored Candy Wafers: These offer not just an additional sugary touch but also allow for creativity in decorating, giving the final product a visually appealing look.
  • Oreo cookies: These iconic cookies add a crunch factor to the recipe, complemented by their distinctive blend of chocolate and cream flavors.
  • Cream cheese: It contributes a velvety texture to the dish while introducing a mild tangy flavor that balances the sweetness of other ingredients.
  • Christmas Sprinkles: While not mandatory, these can be used to infuse a festive vibe into the dish, making it even more appealing to the eye and perfect for holiday gatherings.

Substitutions and Variations

  • Any color of chocolate you have available works great, from milk chocolate to white chocolate chips. Colored melting candy would also work.
  • Substitute Twizzlers with gummy bears, candy canes, or rainbow candy if you want a different look.
  • Sprinkles are not essential, but they do add a nice final touch.
  • Try mint Oreos for a little extra holiday flavor!

How To Make Christmas Oreo Balls

College of making Oreo balls.
  • Cut Twizzlers into one-inch sections. Crush 10 Oreos or blend in a food processor into fine crumbs. Mix softened cream cheese with Oreo crumbs until well combined. (Photo 1).
  • Form the mixture into 1-inch balls and freeze for 20 minutes. (Photo 2).
  • Insert a toothpick into a peanut butter cup, then into a chocolate ball. (Photos 3 & 4).

  • Melt white candy melts or almond bark as per package directions. If the chocolate is not smooth, add coconut or vegetable oil, one teaspoon at a time, until it is. (Photo 5).
  • Only dip balls (not the mini peanut butter cups) into the melted chocolate, and add sprinkles immediately. Remove toothpicks and replace them with Twizzlers. (Photos 6, 7 & 8).
  • Place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet to harden.

Expert Tips 

  • If working with small children or preparing a lot of these I found it easier to use a skewer (creates a larger hole) in the peanut butter cup.
  • After dipping the ball and adding sprinkles, place the completed peanut butter cup on the truffle and allow it to set in the fridge for 20 min on wax paper to prevent sticking. 
  • If the Oreo truffles start to soften too much when you are dipping them, then place them back in the freezer.
  • If dipping in white chocolate, be careful not to splash any of the melted candy onto the peanut butter cup. If it does happen, just wipe it off quickly before it dries with a damp paper towel.
  • Make sure you store them in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Storing Tips 

Place in an airtight container and keep refrigerated. They can be eaten immediately, but they taste best after sitting in the refrigerator overnight.

These Oreo truffles freeze really well. Make sure they are wrapped tightly in plastic wrap, and then place them in a freezer ziplock bag to prevent freezer burn.

What To Serve With Christmas Oreo Balls

These Christmas Oreo Balls can be served as a standalone dessert or paired with other holiday sweet treats. For a full dessert table spread, consider serving them alongside classic holiday cookies, gingerbread, and a warm beverage like hot chocolate or mulled wine. 

They also pair beautifully with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for an added indulgent touch. If you’re hosting a holiday party, these festive truffles can be part of a dessert buffet, complementing cheesecake, fruit pies, and a variety of holiday-themed cupcakes.

Recipe FAQs

Can I make these ahead?

Yes, you can make these several days in advance. Store them in an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Can I make these with other flavors?

You can use flavored candy melts if you want to add some flavor to this Oreo Truffles recipe.

What if I don’t have mini peanut butter cups?

If you don’t have mini peanut butter cups, you can substitute them with any bite-sized chocolate or peanut butter candy. Alternatively, you can omit it altogether — the truffles will still taste delicious!

Can I use regular cream cheese instead of low-fat cream cheese?

Yes, absolutely! Regular cream cheese can be used in this recipe. It may make the truffles slightly richer in flavor, but it won’t significantly affect the overall taste.
