Halloween Bat Oreo Cake Balls

Halloween Bat Oreo Cake Balls


The most amazing thing happened today. My bomb co-worker, Danielle, brought these amazing cake balls (aka truffles) to the office today. I’ve been eating them all day, trying to pace myself at one every hour. I haven’t had any real food yet, and I’m not sorry.

This recipe comes from Chelsea’s Messy Apron. Bottom photo is courtesy of Danielle Davis at Vanilla Lime Photography.

Okay, so these don’t really have cake batter in them, but they have the same consistency, and that is why I call them cake balls. The word truffle confuses me, because I feel it means different things to different people. Cake ball is pretty straight forward. I know it goes in my mouth and I’ll love it.


Halloween Bat Oreo Cake Balls


  • 1 package 16 ounces regular Oreos
  • 1 package 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 bag 12 ounces milk chocolate chips
  • 40 edible eyes
  • 5-10 THIN Oreos depending on your breaking skills


  • Pulse a whole package of regular Oreos in a food processor or blender until it is 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 one hour in the fridge.
  • Once the balls are chilled, melt the chocolate in the microwave in bursts of 15 seconds, stirring in between each burst until melted. (You may need a teaspoon or two of vegetable oil to get the chocolate thin enough to dip in, especially if you end up reheating the chocolate over and over.)
  • 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.
  • Separate the thin Oreos and remove the cream (you can eat this part hehe) and then break the cookies in half.
  • Slide the ball carefully onto parchment paper and press half of 1 cookie into each side of the Oreo truffle.
  • Press and hold two edible eyes onto the truffle.
  • Allow to dry.
