Gluten Free “Oreo” Balls

Hey y’all!

It’s the holiday season, and sometimes it can be hard to find a good gluten-free dessert recipe to have at parties. I found this recipe from Hello Gluten Free, and I’m making these to have on Christmas day! Oreo balls have only 3 ingredients: Oreos, cream cheese, and white chocolate. Sadly, original Oreos aren’t gluten-free, but gluten-free options are available! I used Glutino cookies, which have SUCH good chocolate flavor. I think these are way better than Oreos, which are mainly just sugar. If you aren’t gluten-free, you can totally use regular Oreos with this same recipe! I haven’t tried it with plain Oreos (disclaimer), but I’m sure it’ll taste good!

Some things I noticed while making these:

The mix was pretty soft before rolling them into balls, so I refrigerated the mix in a bowl for 15 mins before rolling them into balls. This helped the mix to not stick all over your hands and turn into a gooey mess.

I used 33 cookies, but the recipe calls for 30. The last three I crumbled by hand and mixed into the bowl of already processed cream cheese and cookies to give it a little more texture.

Buy two packs of cookies! A pack only comes with about 20, so you’ll need the extra cookies unless you make half of a recipe. (Also means more cookies to eat plain… yes please!)

Buy two packages of white chocolate chips. I ran out of white chocolate about 2/3rd of the way through dipping the Oreo balls, so some ended up just being drizzled with white chocolate, then I used a little dark chocolate as well. They were pretty, but they needed more coverage.

That being said, let’s get started!
