OREO Cookie Balls are one of my all time favorite treats! I’ve been making them for years! I’ve always thought it would be fun to try and make different shaped balls, and with the big game coming up, I decided I’d give it a try! Today, I’m sharing these fun Football OREO Cookie Balls with you.
While I was out doing my grocery shopping at Wal-mart I picked up some OREO cookies. I always like to have some of these on hand.

Here is the OFFICIAL OREO COOKIE BALL RECIPE:
- Make it!
- MIX cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended.
- SHAPE into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 min. Dip balls in melted chocolate; place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan.
- CUSTOMIZE it with your own ingredient additions or decorative skills.
- REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.
- Share and enjoy!
I gathered all of the ingredients that I needed and got to work.
When it was time to shape the balls, I shaped them into a football like shape, but with flat sides. Then they were ready to dip in the melted chocolate. I dipped them and then I used melted white chocolate in a zip closure bag, with the corner cut off, to draw the football threads on them (this is completely optional).
Making these into football shapes turned out better than I could have imagined! I love the way they turned out, and they are as yummy as ever!
To dress them up just a bit more, I decided to make some fun football tags to go along with the Football OREO Cookie Balls. Package these up for a little after game treat to send home with your friends! To make these tags, you’ll need to cut out your supplies. I used my Cricut Explore to cut these.
Glue the ball together.
Then glue it to the tag.
Place your Football OREO Cookie Balls in a box, and tie it up with some baker’s twine and add your tag. It’s the perfect little packaging for these!
You’ll have the best treats at the big game party if you make up some of these Football OREO Cookie Balls!
So tell me, what are some of your favorite treats to eat during the big game?
