I had a brush with fate the other day.  I went to Walmart  in search of a certain gift.  I don’t normally shop at Walmart so I was a little disoriented.  I wandered around aimlessly taking in the Christmas merchandise when I spotted Gingerbread flavored golden Oreos.  I stood there transfixed, I had to have these!!!  I skipped out of there hugging my yellow package of Oreos and completely forgot why I went to Walmart in the first place.

Shortly afterwards, I found myself at Michaels looking for gingerbread houses for the kids.  I hardly made it into the store before I noticed Gingerbread flavored Wilton Candy Melts.  Well, I’m not an astrologer but I know a sign from above when I see one!  Clearly I was meant to make Gingerbread Oreo Cookie Balls!

Would you believe I’ve never made Oreo Cookie balls before?  Crazy, I know!  It’s not often you get to use only 3 ingredients to create something spectacular!  I was surprised by how soft and creamy these cookie balls were.  I loved the spicy and sweet molasses flavor from the cookies and the boldness from the gingerbread candy melts.  These will be a holiday hit for sure!  Next year on Black Friday, while everyone else is fighting over tv’s I’ll be hoarding all the holiday Oreo’s I can because these Oreo Cookie Balls will be a new family tradition!   You can learn more about OREO cookie balls and find fun takes on the classic recipe at

Gingerbread Oreo Cookie Balls
  • 1 8 oz block cream cheese, softened
  • 36 Gingerbread Oreo Cookies, crushed ( roughly equal to 3 cups)
  • 2 10 oz bags Gingerbread flavored candy melts ( I used Wilton)
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • Sprinkles, optional
  1. Mix cookie crumbs and softened cream cheese in a bowl or a food processor until well blended. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place in freezer for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Heat candy melts in microwave according to package directions. Dip each ball into melted candy with a fork, allowing excess coating to drip off. Place cookie balls in a single layer on a wax paper lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for one hour or until coating has set.
  3. Place white chocolate chips in a sandwich bag. Microwave for 30 seconds, or until chocolate has melted. Snip a corner of the bag and drizzle chocolate over cookie balls. Cover with sprinkles if using. Return cookie balls to the refrigerator to allow chocolate to harden.
