One of my favorite little treats for Thanksgiving are these fun OREO Cookie balls. I have wanted to make these cute little Turkey balls for a few weeks now. They are super cute and the kids love to help make them. If you want to entertain the kiddos while on school break and have fun doing it, grab this easy recipe.
OREO Cookie Balls
I love how easy the original OREO Cookie Balls recipe is, because it only take three ingredients. Just a few things mixed together, and then DELICIOUSNESS!
This OREO Cookie ball recipe only calls for 3 ingredients:
- 36 OREO cookies finely crushed (about 3 cups)
- 1 package (8oz.) cream cheese (softened)
- 4 (4oz.) semi sweet baking chocolate (melted)
Grab your cookies and break them up into cookie crumbs.
Mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended well.
Shape the mixture into about 48 (1′ inch) cookie balls.
Freeze for 10 minutes. Then dip the balls into the melted chocolate and then place onto a pan covered with wax paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
Once you have the cookie balls made, it’s now time to make the OREO cookie balls into OREO Thanksgiving Turkey Cookie Balls. You will need a few extra ingredients to finish off the turkeys.
- candy corn
- candy eyes
- tubed icing (to help things stick together)
Remove the OREO Cookie Balls from the refrigerator (only cooling for about 10 minutes) and grab your supplies. I just simply grabbed 5 Indian colored honey flavored candy corn and add them to the back of the cookie ball.
Then take your icing and add a few dabs to the back of the candy eyes and place on the cookie ball.

I then took a candy corn and cut of the white tip and used this for the nose. I cut the orange piece in half and used those for the feet. After placing the candy corn on the back for the feathers and finishing up, I placed them back in the fridge to completely cool.
I think they turned out really cute! What a fun way to change things up and decorate the already delicious original OREO cookie balls as Thanksgiving Turkeys.
