4 adorable and festive Halloween Oreo Balls — monsters, pumpkins, bats, and mummies; each made with 5 ingredients or less!

I’ve kept the text brief on this one to basically include the ingredients and where I’ve found them. Please note that each recipe is for making an entire batch of ONE type of truffle. If you want to make all four or an assortment then you’ll want to make a regular batch of the oreo truffles and then scale down the decoration parts to exactly how many of each oreo truffle you want. The quantity of truffles you get of course depends on the size you roll them out.

First up, MONSTER TRUFFLES. These ended up being my favorite, so they get written about first in the line-up ☺️

Monsters, Inc. is one of my all-time favorite movies and these little guys definitely remind me of a monster you’d see from that movie! One big eye and some sprinkles on top — these couldn’t be easier to make! I’ve found the large edible eyes at different grocery stores (usually with cake decorating, sprinkles, or general baking aisle). The candy melts and sprinkles are hit or miss at grocery stores, but I’ve always had luck finding them at crafting stores. Also if you are local to SLC area, you can grab the sprinkles for a great deal at Orson Gygi which is one of my favorite places in SLC to find decorating supplies. They’ve got sprinkles of every color you could imagine.

In case you can’t find the ingredients in the store, or prefer the convenience of shopping online, here are links to the ingredients I used:

Monster Truffles

Cook Time 1 hour

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) regular Oreos
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) Lavender Candy Melts
  • Light purple sprinkles
  • 18-20 Large Edible eyes
  • Optional: vegetable oil you might want to add some to make the candy melts easier to work with

Instructions

  • Pulse the full oreos (no need to separate cream from cookie) in a food processor or blender until it is in crumbs.
  • Using a hand held mixer, beat the Oreos and cream cheese together until well combined.
  • Roll the mixture into balls.
  • Chill the balls, covered tightly, for an hour in the fridge.
  • Once the balls are chilled, melt the candy melts according to package directions. (This is technically another ingredient, but you may need a teaspoon (or a few) of vegetable oil to get the chocolate thin enough to dip in. Every chocolate is a little different so if needed, I'll just add the oil slowly until it coats the oreo truffles well.)
  • Place a ball on a fork and then spoon the melted chocolate evenly over the ball. Tap the fork holding the ball to remove excess chocolate.
  • Slide the ball carefully onto parchment paper and immediately (it hardens quickly) press and hold an edible eye into the center.
  • Sprinkle the sprinkles on top of the ball.
  • Allow to dry.

PUMPKIN OREO BALLS 4 adorable and festive Halloween Oreo Balls -- monsters, pumpkins, bats, and mummies; each made with 5 ingredients or less! via chelseasmessyapron.com
Next up, PUMPKIN TRUFFLES. When I first was thinking about doing a post of Halloween truffles, I came up with 8 different ideas. I sent all 8 ideas in a text message to my sisters and had them vote for their top 4. The only one that got all 4 votes was a pumpkin! It definitely surprised me, but they did end up cute so I’m glad they made the cut. πŸ˜‰

These little guys have pretty standard ingredients that aren’t too hard to find. Pretzels, M&M’s, and orange candy melts. Especially since it’s Halloween time, I’ve seen orange melts at lots of different grocery stores. But, just in case you can’t find the orange melts in the store, or prefer the convenience of shopping online, here is an Amazon link for them:

BAT OREO BALLS 4 adorable and festive Halloween Oreo Balls -- monsters, pumpkins, bats, and mummies; each made with 5 ingredients or less! via chelseasmessyapron.com

Third, BAT TRUFFLES.

These little guys again, have pretty standard ingredients that aren’t too hard to find. In fact, these should be the easiest πŸ™‚ Regular milk chocolate (or dark or semi-sweet — whatever you like best!) and more oreos for the wings! I suggest using the thin oreos since they hold up better, but if you don’t want to buy two different kinds of oreos, the regular will work okay.

Again, in case you can’t find the edible eyes in the store, or prefer the convenience of shopping online, here is an Amazon link for them:

MUMMY OREO BALLS 4 adorable and festive Halloween Oreo Balls -- monsters, pumpkins, bats, and mummies; each made with 5 ingredients or less! via chelseasmessyapron.com

Last, but definitely not least, MUMMY TRUFFLES. The idea of mummies to me is super creepy, but they are one of my favorites to make into food. (See here: mummy bark and mummy milanos) These truffles get drenched in white chocolate and then you let them completely dry. After they are dry is when you’ll pipe on extra white chocolate to give the “bandages” more of a defined look. I also like to pipe a little bit of chocolate over the eyes to make them seem more encased in the “mummy”.

Again, in case you can’t find the edible eyes in the store, or prefer the convenience of shopping online, here is an Amazon link for them: Alternatively, you could use 2 mini chocolate chips put in upside down into the truffle!

  • Cut off the tip of the bag and pipe stripes around the oreo ball to resemble a mummy. Press 2 edible eyes onto the stripes and then pipe a little on the top of the eyes to make it look more like a mummy. (See video tutorial),
  • Allow to dry.

        1. If you aren’t going to eat them same day then I would store them in the fridge πŸ™‚ Thanks for asking Bob; enjoy!

    1. I’ve never tried dipping an oreo ball in frosting and while I think it could maybe work, the chocolate is definitely your best bet.

    1. Awe, thank you so much Pam! I list under each photo where I have luck finding the products (or link to where you find them online). I usually have luck finding both the eyes and candy melts at craft stores or grocery stores near baking/cake decorating products. Enjoy!

  1. So if I wanted to make these and ship them overnight to my grandson – probably not a good idea, huh? They are SO adorable.

    1. Oh man, unfortunately I don’t think they’d do great πŸ™ I wish these would ship well! Thank you for your sweet comment D!

  2. Thanks for posting these!! What a great idea! They look delicious and super fun to make! I definitely be making these and having my nephew help to decorate them! He’s going to have so much fun.

  3. Our annual Halloween party is around the corner!!
    My Grandkids and I are making bats and mummy’s!
    These are so cute!!
    We can’t wait!????
    Thank you in advance!

  4. Question: This is my first time trying to make ANYthing like these. I’m having trouble mixing the cookie crumbs and cream cheese together, any suggestions? Thank you

    1. Is the cream cheese softened to room temperature and the cookies finely crushed? Try using a stand mixer or hand beaters and that should help the process along πŸ™‚

  5. I cannot get the candy coating to the right consistency for dipping even with using veg oil. I am using Wilton candy melts and following the directions for microwave melting. Help! I have ugly and naked Oreo balls!

    1. Is the chocolate completely melted? Can you give me a little more detail so I can help you out? Make sure the chocolates are totally melted and then add vegetable oil a teaspoon at a time until it thins a bit. It will still seem pretty thick and should be thick. I don’t actually dip the balls in either. Hold an oreo ball on top of a spoon or fork over the bowl of melted chocolate and then using another spoon, spoon the melted chocolate over the ball, and then tap the fork on the side of the bowl. See the video for more help. Good luck!

  6. 5 stars
    Wow, really, I can’t get over that delicious taste! So simple and yet – sooo great. Thank you for this recipe – it’s a real keeper

  7. Throwing a monster themed baby shower tomorrow. Making these in different colors for the favors. If I put 3 or 4 together in little plastic baggies do you think they Will smudge?

    1. I think they might (especially if you’re in a hot area!) I’d recommend serving them in a plate or platter. Sounds like a fun shower!

  8. I love these simple truffles, and they are always a big hit when I make them. Thank you for the creative spooky theme ideas.I was wondering if you have tried this recipe using the flavored oreos and if so how did they work out for you. I was thinking of using the peanut butter, lemon,vanilla or any of the newer ones on the market. I have used the mint ones to make a melting snowman and they came out great.

    1. I’ve made lots of oreo truffles with different flavors of oreos and they always work out great!! Definitely a fun idea πŸ™‚

  9. 5 stars
    Question, i wanna make these with my 12 yr old nephew, but if he saw that i was putting cream cheese in them, he would run in the opp direction. He is that kind….he won’t even try it. So, is there an alternative you might suggest?
