New Year's Eve Oreo Cookie Balls

When I think of New Year’s Eve the first thing that comes to mind is the Times Square ball drop. Well, maybe not the very first – but, it’s up there. The ball’s come a long way from its 1907 debut. Back then it was covered in 100 25-watt bulbs. The modern-day ball is covered with 2,688 Waterford Crystal triangles that are lit by 32,256 LED lights. To celebrate this over-a-century-old holiday tradition, have the kids make their own version.

When I say that the kiddos can make a New Year’s Eve ball, I actually mean an Oreo cookie ball. The well-known version of this tasty treat is an Oreo-cream cheese combo covered in chocolate to make a truffle. This recipe nixes the chocolate. I’m a fan of chocolate, but for this kids’ cooking activity it’s easier (and a tasty alternative) to use frosting. This means no heating and no waiting for the chocolate to cool before eating!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Oreos—We used the birthday cake kind as a ‘celebration’ treat.

·        6 oz. of softened cream cheese

·        Frosting

·        Gold crystal sugar or sprinkles

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Crush the cookies in a food processor. They should be the consistency of soil.

2.     Mix the cookie dust with the cream cheese. Your child can use her hands. Have her mush and mash the mixture.

3.     Create balls from the mixture.


4.     Place the balls on a piece of wax paper and pop them into the freezer for one hour.

5.     Take the cookies out of the freezer and coat them with frosting.

6.     Cover the frosting with gold sugar or sprinkles. Put the Oreo New Year’s Eve balls into a bowl and sprinkle the sugar on top. Keep rolling them until they are covered in gold!

  4. I never thought Oreo could be made this much more delicious. Honestly, I don’t need a new year to have something this good – I would have those any day of the week! As a writer providing Essay Editing Service to college students, my work gets pretty boring. I think I should always keep a plate full of them when I am editing essays - it may add some flavor to my otherwise bland work life.
