OREO Witch Cookie Balls Recipe


  • 30 OREO Cookies, divided
  • 4 oz. brick cream cheese, softened
  • 8 oz. green candy coating wafers, melted
  • 3 oz. black string licorice, cut into 1-inch lengths
  • 1 Tbsp. candy-coated chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp. sprinkles or confetti candy
  • 24 chocolate candies
  • 24 foil-wrapped milk chocolate pieces


  • Split  12 cookies; remove and discard creme filling.
  • Crush  remaining cookies; mix with cream cheese until blended. Shape into 24 (1-inch) balls; place on waxed paper-covered rimmed baking sheet. Refrigerate 20 min.
  • Dip  balls, 1 at a time, in coating, turning to evenly coat each ball. Return to baking sheet, allowing excess coating to pool at bottom of each ball. Immediately decorate with licorice, candy-coated chips and sprinkles to resemble witch heads as shown in photo.
  • Refrigerate  30 min. Top with cookie halves and chocolate candies for the witches' hats, securing all pieces with remaining candy coating. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Keep refrigerated.

Recipe Tips

Size WiseSweets can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.

How to Easily Dip Cookie BallsKeep the cookie balls refrigerated until ready to dip in the melted coating. Then, add balls, in batches, to bowl of melted coating. Use 2 forks to roll balls in coating until evenly coated. Remove balls with forks, letting excess coating drip back into bowl. Place balls in prepared pan; let stand until firm. If coating becomes too thick, add up to 1 tsp. shortening to each 8 oz. of candy wafers.

SubstitutePrepare using 2 pkg. (4 oz. each) white baking chocolate tinted with a few drops of green food coloring.
