Bunny Oreo Balls
Bunny Oreo Balls are an easy no-bake dessert that is perfect way to welcome Spring. Oreo mint cookies, white melting candies, and mini marshmallows are used to create the cutest bunnies. Such a fun and festive idea for the kids to help make, too.
Servings: 50 truffles
- 1 package (16 ounces) mint flavored Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
- 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 16 ounces white chocolate or white candy melts, melted
- miniature marshmallows (ears)
- Pink sugar crystals (ears)
- pink nonpareil sprinkles (nose)
- small candy eyes
- white candy coated chocolate pearls (tail)
Make the bunny ears by cutting miniature marshmallows in half diagonally. Immediately press the cut side into pink sanding sugar. Set aside.
Prepare a baking sheet with waxed paper.
Place the cookies into a food processor and pulse until the cookies become fine crumbs. Cut the cream cheese into chunks and add the cream cheese to the food processor. Pulse until the mixture is well blended and forms a large ball.
Using a small cookie scoop, portion the cookie dough into 1-inch balls and roll into a smooth ball. Optional: For best results, freeze the oreo balls prior to decorating.
Dip each ball into the melted chocolate and tap to remove the excess chocolate. Place the cookie ball on the prepared cookie sheet. Tip: If using candy melts, add vegetable shortening or coconut oil to the candy as it melts. This makes the candy spread move evenly and creates a smoother shell around the truffle.
Once the chocolate is set, decorate the bunny features using the remainder of the melted chocolate and a toothpick.
Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for about 1 hour or until firm.
To freeze: Prepare the cookie balls as directed and place on the baking sheet. Put the baking sheet into the freezer until the cookie balls are frozen. Transfer the cookie balls to an airtight container. Seal and freeze for up to 6 months.
