If you want to make Oreo balls without cream cheese, then you are at the right place. This article will answer every question you have about Oreo balls.


How To Make Oreo Balls Without Cream Cheese


  • 1 package of Oreo cookies (regular or Double Stuf).
  • 1/2 cup of butter, melted.
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar.
  • Chocolate chips or candy melts for coating.


  • Crush the Oreos into fine crumbs using a food processor or by placing them in a plastic bag and crushing them with a rolling pin.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, vanilla extract, and salt.
  • Add the powdered sugar to the bowl and mix until well combined.
  • Add the crushed Oreos to the bowl and mix until the mixture is thoroughly combined and all the crumbs are coated with the butter-sugar mixture.
  • Roll the mixture into small balls (about 1 inch in diameter) and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Place the baking sheet in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes to firm up the balls.
  • Melt the chocolate chips or candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl or on a double boiler.
  • Remove the Oreo balls from the freezer and dip them into the melted chocolate to coat.
  • Place the chocolate-coated Oreo balls back on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet and allow them to cool and harden.
  • Store the Oreo balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Are There Oreos Without The Cream?

Traditional Oreo cookies always come with a sweet cream filling sandwiched between the two chocolate wafer cookies. However, there are other types of Oreo cookies that may have different flavors of cream filling or different textures, such as Double Stuff Oreos, Thins, or Fudge Covered Oreos.

If you prefer a chocolate cookie without a cream filling, other brands of chocolate wafer cookies are available on the market. Many people who enjoy Oreo cookies without the cream have requested that Nabisco produce a version with just the chocolate wafers. However, Nabisco has not provided information about developing plain Oreo cookie wafers. 

So, if you prefer just the wafers, you will have to manually scrape off the cream filling to enjoy them that way. One advantage of not eating the cream filling in Oreos is that you can reduce your intake of calories, carbohydrates, and sugar in a single serving. This makes it ideal for a low-calorie yet satisfying snack or dessert. 

Can I Freeze These Oreo Truffles Without Cream Cheese?

You can freeze Oreo truffles for up to three months. To do this, place them in an airtight container or gallon zipper bag, and store them in the freezer. When you want to enjoy your Oreo truffles, take them out of the freezer and let them thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Once they are thawed, they will be ready to eat and enjoy.

Exercise caution when freezing Oreo truffles, as it depends on your recipe. If the recipe does not include cream cheese, it may be possible to freeze the truffles. However, if the recipe includes other perishable ingredients like heavy cream, it’s important to be cautious when freezing the truffles.

Keep in mind that freezing Oreo truffles can alter their texture. When frozen, they may become slightly softer or lose some of their crunches. Therefore, testing a small batch before freezing a large batch is recommended to determine if the texture and taste are still good.

How Long Will Oreo Truffles Keep In The Refrigerator?

Oreo balls can last up to three weeks when stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. To keep them fresh, it’s important to store them properly. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator, as leaving them on the counter can cause the chocolate to soften. It’s best to keep them chilled until ready to serve.

Alternatively, you can freeze them for up to two months. If you plan to stack the Oreo balls in the container, it’s important to place parchment or wax paper in between the balls to prevent them from sticking together.

However, the actual shelf life of Oreo balls may vary depending on the specific recipe and storage conditions. Therefore, it’s essential to check for any signs of spoilage, such as a change in color, texture, or odor, before consuming them. If you notice any of these signs, it’s best to discard the Oreo balls to prevent the risk of foodborne illness.


If you don’t have cream cheese on hand, don’t worry – plenty of Oreo truffle recipes don’t require it and are just as delicious. With a variety of options to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect one for your next party or get-together. And if you’re looking for even more Oreo recipes, there are plenty of options to explore!
