Super Bowl Snack For a Crowd: Oreo Truffle Footballs

Earlier, we brought you a Super Bowl Buffalo Chicken Dip big enough to feed a game day crowd. Now for the sweets (I mean, you need something to counteract all of the spicy wing dip and beer, right?). With only four ingredients, these Oreo Truffle Footballs are delicious, so simple to make and even easier to shop for.

A sort of heaven-sent hybrid between a cake ball, a cookie and a truffle, these little guys make the perfect bite-size sweet.

Here's how to make them:

Oreo Truffle Footballs recipe adapted from

  • 1 package of Oreo cookies
  • 1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tube white decorating icing


    Finely crush a package of Oreos (including the cream in the center) in a food processor or in a large Ziploc bag.

    Mix crushed cookies with package of softened cream cheese.

    Roll the mixture into small football-shaped balls and place on a wax paper-covered cookie sheet. Freeze for at least 10 minutes before coating.

    Melt chocolate chips as directed on package and dip the footballs into the mixture. Tap off any extra chocolate and place back on cookie sheet to dry.

    Once the coating has dried, use icing tube to pipe on adorable little laces.

    Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    If you want to get crazy, use any variety of Oreos (mint chocolate, perhaps?) or a dark chocolate for coating.

    Enjoy...and go NEW YORK!
