Melted Snowman Oreo Balls are a fun and festive way to make Frosty in edible food form. These mini desserts are a delicious DIY craft for kids using Oreo cookies, cream cheese, frosting, and candy coating.
12ouncesvanilla almond bark(1 ½ cups or 6 squares)
Prepare two sheet pans by lining them with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix the crushed Oreo cookies, cream cheese, and vanilla frosting together until fully combined.
Roll into 1-inch balls and then place on a sheet pan. Put the sheet pan in the freezer or refrigerator to chill for 15 minutes.
While the Oreo balls chill, use a double boiler or microwave to melt the vanilla almond bark until smooth and creamy.
Once the Oreo balls are chilled, dip each ball into the vanilla almond bark and then place them back on the sheet pan to set.
Before the chocolate sets completely, decorate the Oreo balls by creating snowman hats with the Rolo candies and mini-Oreos. Take half of the mini-Oreo and place it on top of the Oreo ball as the hat brim.
Then place the Rolo candy on top with the narrow side pointing down. Use extra vanilla almond bark to make sure all the decorations stick together.
Use the assorted sprinkles to create a face for the snowman and then place in the refrigerator to chill for another hour, optional.
Plate and serve cold.
To Store: Store your Oreo balls in a container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. For softer treats, you can keep them at room temperature for about a week.
If you don’t have Rolo candies, you can use just the mini Oreos instead.
If you don’t have mini Oreos, you can just use Rolo candies instead.
When using assorted sprinkles, find sprinkles that can make a snowman face. Look for some black circular sprinkles for eyes and orange nonpareil sprinkles for the nose. You can also use black and orange icing for the faces.

Use a spoon to roll the Oreo balls into the melted almond bark, then lift them back out onto the parchment paper.
Dip the narrow part of the Rolo into the melted almond bark before sticking it onto the mini Oreo so that it stays better.
Once you’ve dipped your Oreo balls, let the coating pool at the bottom to give you a melting snowman look.
