Ingredients You’ll Need + Notes/Substitutions:

Here’s an overview of the ingredients you’ll need for this gluten-free Oreo balls recipe.

(For exact measurements, please scroll down to the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post.)

  • Oreos: I used gluten-free Oreo cookies to keep this party favorite gluten-free. Alternatively, you may also use other gluten free chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Glutino cookies) if you prefer. If you are not Celiac or gluten intolerant, go ahead and use regular Oreos instead.
  • Cream Cheese: Cream cheese helps to bind the ingredients together, so make sure to add it in. If you are lactose-intolerant, you can use dairy-free cream cheese instead.
  • Chocolate Chips: I like using semi-sweet chocolate chips, but you can use dark chocolate chips, regular chocolate chips or even white chocolate chips if you prefer.
  • Coconut Oil: I prefer using refined coconut oil (which has a more neutral flavor) as opposed to extra virgin coconut oil (which has a stronger coconut taste and smell). You may also use another neutral vegetable oil (such as sunflower oilcanola oil etc).
  • Chocolate sprinkles: I like to sprinke some chocolate sprinkles on top of the truffles (either plain brown sprinkles or Christmas sprinkles for a more festive feel).

How to Make Gluten-Free Oreo Balls (Step by Step):

1. Pulse Gluten-Free Oreos into Fine Crumbs

In a food processor or high-speed blender, pulse the gluten-free Oreos until you get very fine Oreo crumbs.

3. Scoop Out Dough

Using a cookie scoop, scoop out 2 tablespoons of dough per truffle and place dough in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or wax paper so the truffles don’t stick to the pan.

Repeat until all the dough is used up.

4. Freeze Until Hardened

Place in the freezer to harden for 10-15 minutes.

5. Roll into Round Balls

Once the dough has hardened a little, use your hands to roll the dough into smooth round balls.

6. Melt Chocolate Chips

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips in 30-second increments in the microwave until melted. If you don’t have a microwave, you may use a double boiler instead.

Add in coconut oil or vegetable to help thin out the chocolate, mixing well until you get a smooth melted chocolate.
