Coated Cookie Drops Recipe

"It's a good thing these no-bake drops are simple, because I like to serve them throughout the year," writes Amanda Reid of Oakville, Iowa. "Their moist, cake-like center and sweet coating satisfy the chocolate lover in everyone. I'm asked for the recipe time and time again."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling YIELD:90 servings


  • 1 package (15-1/2 ounces) Oreo cookies
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 15 ounces white candy coating, coarsely chopped
  • 12 ounces milk chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped
  • Red and/or green candy coating disks, optional


  • 1. Place the cookies in a food processor; cover and process until finely crushed. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and crushed cookies until blended. Roll into 3/4-in. balls. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • 2. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt white candy coating, stirring until smooth; dip half of the balls to completely coat. Melt chocolate candy coating and dip remaining balls. Place on waxed paper until hardened.
  • 3. Drizzle white candies with remaining chocolate coating and chocolate candies with remaining white coating. Or melt red or green coating and drizzle over balls. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: about 7-1/2 dozen.

"I made this for the chocolate lovers (myself included) for Christmas and none of us liked them so this recipe is not a keeper!"

"These are a cookie exchange staple at my house, people request them every year. We also call them "oreo balls". Although I make many Xmas candies these are definitely the easiest ones by far! Try them, you won't be disapointed."

"I made these for our son's wedding reception this year. I added green food color to half the white coating and red food color to the other half white coating before I dipped the the balls. Green & pink polka dots were the print of the flower girl dresses!!! The 'oreo balls'(as we call them) were a BIG hit."
