Rudolph Oreo Balls is a super Christmas treat to give out for the holidays. Coated in Ghirardelli’s chocolate and decorated adorably these reindeer balls are delicious.
Takes just a few ingredients to make these Rudolph treats. Ghirardelli’s dark chocolate melting wafers, candy eyes, pretzels, red M&M’s, Oreos, and cream cheese.
Firstly blend the Oreo cookies in a blender or food processor. If you use a blender like I did you will have to do about 5 or 6 cookies are a time. Pour the cookie crumbs into a bowl.
Once all the Oreo cookies are processed it’s time to make the balls. Add cream cheese to the Oreo crumbs and blend well with a hand mixer. Make sure the cream cheese isn’t super cold so that it mixes well.
Secondly using a one tablespoon scoop, scoop out a tablespoon full and roll into a ball. Set on a plate that will go in the fridge. Continue this until all of the mixture is rolled into balls.
Place the plate into the fridge for at least one hour. I usually leave them overnight to make sure they are good and solid before dipping. Melt the chocolate wafers as directed on the package.
How to Decorate the Rudolph Balls
Roll the balls in the melted chocolate using a fork. Lift up and let the excess chocolate drain from the ball. Place onto parchment paper. Add the M&M nose, candy eyes, and broken pretzel as antlers right away. Let dry before serving.
Keep the Rudolph Oreo balls in the fridge until ready to serve. Taste best when used with two weeks. The pretzels can get stale pretty quickly in the fridge.
These Oreo balls are great for serving up at a parties on charcuterie boards. Make a treat board with cute reindeer treats for holiday fun.
