Ingredients For the 4 Ingredient Oreo Edible Ornaments Recipe
- Oreos: Stick to the classic Oreo cookies for this one, or choose a festive-flavored one like Mint Oreos if you really want a bit of extra flavor.
- Cream cheese: Room temperature, softened cream cheese is what you’re looking for. This will act as the binding agent and will help you shape the crushed Oreos into balls.
- Candy melts: White or colorful chocolate candy melts will form the coating for the Oreo balls. I used red and dark green ones.
- Mini Reese’s cups: Mini Reese’s cups will act as the topper for the edible ornaments that you’re making.
- Candy Sprinkles: (Optional) Use whatever sprinkles you think are pretty. These are optional, and you’re Oreo cookie ornaments will still look adorable!

Tips & Variations for this Oreo Truffle Ornaments Recipe
- To get the most consistent, even Oreo truffle mixture, consider using an electric hand mixer.
- Use a cookie scoop to get the perfect, even-sized Oreo truffle balls.
- If you don’t have candy melts, opt for some almond bark instead, and use food coloring to get your choice of color into the coating mixture.
- If you’re using food coloring, make sure you use the powdered or gel variety and not liquid food coloring.
- If you don’t have candy melts or almond bark, you can use some melted chocolate chips to coat the Oreo balls too. Just remember to mix a teaspoon of coconut oil into the melted chocolate mixture to get it to solidify nicely.
- Use full-fat cream cheese instead of the low-fat variety. The flavor you’ll get with the full-fat version is unmatched.
- To bring a bit of festive bling into these ornaments, you can also use some edible gold glitter or spray to decorate them.
How to Serve these Sweet Edible Holiday Ornaments
Storage Ideas & Suggestions
If you have any leftover Oreo truffle ornaments, you can store them in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Just remember to transfer them to an airtight container to keep them fresh.
If you want them to last longer, you can freeze them too. Just use a freezer-safe container or a Ziploc bag, and you’re good to go. Remember to use some parchment paper or wax paper in between each ornament to keep them from sticking to each other.
For sure you can! As long as the weights are the same as the Philadelphia brand, and you enjoy the flavor of the store brand, you’re good to go!
