I was first introduced to OREO Cookie Balls over seven years ago at my sister-in-law’s baby shower. It was love at first bite! Since then I have always found occasions to whip these up and bring. They are quick and easy but look like you slaved all day. When it comes to the Big Game, you tend to think about snack food and appetizers to serve during the game. Your standard nachos and cheese dip come to mind. But you very rarely ever think about serving something sweet. Until now.
When you are planning your Big Game party, don’t forget the sweet stuff! It won’t take you forever to make OREO Cookie Balls and you can even dress them up for the big game. All you need is some OREOs and Cream Cheese.
Get the kids involved and let them smash the OREOs.
Mix it all together! If you want to dress your OREO Cookie Balls up for the football game, you can shape them into helmets. I rolled mine into a ball and then used a skewer to create an indent for the helmet.
Once you have all of your balls rolled, place them in the freezer to harden. While you are waiting, get your decorations ready for your party!
Game Day Photobooth
Photobooths are always a party hit! You don’t need to be overly creative or spend a lot of money to make one. All you need is a plastic tablecloth, some duct tape, and props! Lay your table cloth down on the floor and use white duct tape to create the lines on your football field.
Hang on the wall or from a backdrop stand and decorate with a football banner!
Grab some props like helmets, footballs, and foam fingers.
Let the kids loose to have some fun!
Game Day OREO Cookie Ball Helmets
Now that you are all decorated for your party , it’s time to turn your OREO Cookie Balls into Helmets! I decided to make mine into pops so it would be easier to dip. Dip your helmets into melted chocolate. Place a broken pretzel on the front as the mask of the helmet. Make sure you do this quickly before the chocolate hardens!
- 1 pkg (8 oz.) brick cream cheese, softened
- 36 OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 3 cups)
- 4 pkg. (4 oz. each) semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted

- Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 min. Dip balls in melted chocolate; place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan.
