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!
Gluten-Free “Oreo” Balls from Hello Gluten Free

- 8oz cream cheese, softened
- 1 package white chocolate chips (I needed two bags)
|Using a food processor, blend together cookies and cream cheese until smooth.|
|Roll into 1 inch balls and place on wax paper, then set in the freezer for 30 minutes or so.|
|Melt white chocolate chips and roll each ball in the melted chips to cover. Place on wax paper to cool and serve. Best kept in the fridge or freezer.|
