Best Birthday Cake White Chocolate Oreo Balls

Birthday Cake Oreo Balls are bite-sized sweets that easily upgrade a classic sandwich cookie into indulgent chocolate confections. I’ve taken the best of my original Oreo Balls recipe and revised it to include vanilla frosting, so that the insides of these Oreo balls are extra sweet and moist and make it taste like a cake pop, but without the extra work.  

This recipe is simply a combination of crushed birthday cake flavored Oreo cookies that have been pummeled into crumbs, mixed with cream cheese and frosting, rolled into balls, coated in melted chocolate then covered in colorful sprinkles. Biting through the hard candy-coated shell into the soft cake-like center is the best birthday treat in the form of a tasty truffle!

If you love converting Oreo cookies into decadent desserts, my 2-Ingredient Oreo Mug Cake, Oreo Peppermint Bark, Oreo Milkshake, Deep-Fried Oreos, and so many more are delicious!

Ingredients / Shopping List

  • Birthday Cake Oreo cookies: Feel free to try this recipe with another kind of Oreo cookie if you would like. If you don’t have birthday cake Oreos at your store, use regular stuffed Oreos instead.
  • Cream cheese: Replace the cream cheese with more vanilla frosting if you don’t have any cream cheese.
  • Vanilla frosting: This recipe works with 8 ounces of cream cheese and no vanilla frosting. However, I love the frosting because it makes these Oreo balls taste more like cake pops, but without all that extra work!
  • Vanilla almond bark: You can use white chocolate chips or baking bars instead of almond bark. It can be a little tricker to melt, so keep some shortening on hand to maintain the consistency if you decide to go that route. (But to be frank, almond bark is way easier and more forgiving!)
  • Rainbow sprinkles: I used a combination of rainbow jimmies and nonpareils. You can use both or choose between the two.

Substitutions and Additions

  • Try Fun Toppings: Try rolling these truffles in different toppings before allowing them to set. You could use rainbow jimmies, nonpareils, coconut, or crushed nuts. Or add a drizzle of chocolate,
  • Create Holiday Happiness: You can use a variety of colored sprinkles to make festive Oreo balls for any holiday. Add rainbow sprinkles for a birthday-themed party; red and green sprinkles for Christmas; pink and red sprinkles for Valentine’s Day; pretty pale colors for Easter.
  • Festive Flavors: Feel free to create your own customized Oreo Ball. Some ideas include:
    • Red Velvet Oreo Balls: Use red velvet Oreos and sprinkle the top with red and white sprinkles for Valentines Day.
    • Mint Oreo Balls: Crush mint Oreos for a mint Oreo ball and top each ball with red and green sprinkles for Christmas.
    • Fourth of July Oreo Balls: Use some red, white, and blue Oreos for a fourth of July celebration. Make sure not to leave off the red and blue sprinkles with these! 
    • Caramel Coconut Oreo Balls: When you get your hands on the caramel coconut Oreo Balls, sprinkle some coconut over the top of each ball and enjoy!

How to Make Birthday Cake Oreo Balls

It is so easy to make these no-bake Birthday Cake Oreo Balls, simply by crushing cookies into crumbs, mixing them with cream cheese and frosting, rolling them into balls, then dipping them into chocolate with a drizzle of sprinkles. These handheld delicious treats are so much fun to eat, they’ll make you want to throw a party even when it’s not your birthday!

  1. Pulse the Oreos in a food processor or blender until they resemble fine crumbs.
    Pro-Tip: If you don’t have a food processor, you can place the Oreos in a ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin.

  2. Combine Oreo crumbs, cream cheese, and vanilla frosting to form a mixture.

  3. Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls and place them on the chilled sheet pan.
    Pro Tip: I find it easiest to use a 1-inch cookie scoop for this step.

  4. Place the Oreo balls in the refrigerator or freezer to set for 30 minutes. 
    Pro-Tip: Make sure you refrigerate or freeze the dough balls before dipping them in chocolate. Otherwise, the hot chocolate will melt the dough, and the balls will have a difficult time keeping their shape.
  5. Melt the vanilla almond bark in the microwave, stirring in 30 second increments.

  6. Dip each ball into the vanilla almond bark, one at a time to coat thoroughly, and place back on the parchment paper.
  7. Sprinkle each ball with sprinkles while the vanilla almond bark is still warm.
    Pro Tip: I used a combination of rainbow jimmies and nonpareils. If you want to add toppings or sprinkles, make sure to do that before the chocolate sets. If all you want to do is add another chocolate drizzle, wait to do so until after the chocolate has set completely.
  8. Chill the decorated Oreo balls in the refrigerator or freezer for 30 minutes or until the chocolate hardens.

  10. Enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions

What do birthday cake Oreos taste like?

Birthday cake Oreos are sweeter than the original cookie. The creme filling, flecked with rainbow sprinkles throughout, tastes like birthday cake batter and frosting.

Do my Oreo Balls need to be refrigerated?

Oreo balls should be kept in the fridge until you serve them. I personally think they taste best when cold. However, they can be left at room temperature. According to the FDA, cream cheese can be left out at room temperature for up to 2 hours.

Can I use a different kind of chocolate to coat my Oreo balls?

I prefer to use almond bark for coating these Oreo balls. However, you can use candy melts, chocolate chips, or other melting chocolate.

Can I make my Oreo balls in advance?

These treats are perfect for making ahead because they can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to a week or in the freezer for up to 6 weeks.

What is the easiest way to dip my Oreo ball in chocolate?

I like to use a fork or dipping tool to dip it in chocolate, then use a spoon to pour more chocolate over them, then lift and let excess runoff.
