Salted Peanut Butter OREO balls are the ultimate easy-to-make no-bake Christmas treat!

Some of my favorite holiday treats to make are cut-out cookies, buckeyes (or peanut butter balls for you non-Ohioans), and OREO Cookie Balls.

OREO Cookie Balls are easy to make, only requiring three ingredients. You can head to your local Walmart and pick up OREOs, cream cheese, and chocolate for the coating.

If you’re feeling fancy like I was, pick up some peanut butter and coarse salt to make a Salted Peanut Butter version, although you can use whatever flavor of OREOs and cream cheese your heart desires.

In reality, running to the store for the ingredients will probably take longer than actually making the Oreo Cookie Balls.

Pulse the OREOs whole in the blender until finely ground, mix them with the cream cheese, roll into balls and coat with chocolate. It’s that simple!

I highly recommend waiting until the next day to eat them, as it gives the cream cheese time to melt into the OREO crumbs, creating an incredibly smooth center.

Oreo Cookie Balls make perfect gifts for neighbors and friends and look cute on Christmas treat trays.

      I use a deep container and melt the chocolate in the microwave in 10 second intervals. Then, I dunk the balls in an lift them out with a fork and tap it on the edge to let the excess drip off. Getting the off the fork onto the parchment paper is the trickiest part. I usually shake the ball to the end of the tines and then push it off with another for. Good luck and happy dipping!
