Oreo Birthday Cake Cookie Balls Recipe…

When I was younger, ever couple years we would visit my grandma and grandpa in Michigan. We would go a few days before Christmas and usually stay until after my cousin’s birthday, just three days after. I always felt bad for her because no matter what Christmas overshadowed her birthday. Though my aunt and uncle did their best to make it stand out making sure not to give her combined gifts and what not. But just like how my birthday falls around 4th of July and people were not around, the same goes for her birthday.

So when Oreo contacted me about making cookie balls for them I originally thought something holiday festive. Then I got to thinking about my cousin and anyone else who has a birthday during the holiday season. I also thought about the fact that the Oreo’s we eat the most in this household are the Birthday Oreo’s. While I prefer the Golden Birthday Oreo’s I actually did a mix of each kind since a package of Oreo’s (at least that flavor) only has 30 per package. So I used half golden and half regular.

For something with so few ingredients this are highly addictive. I mean highly. The teens loved them. MDP loved them. They were just in awe that they were basically crushed cookies and cream cheese. The hard part of course is the dipping. I am not a good dipper I know this. I am in awe of those who get cake balls and cookie balls looking so perfect. It’s definitely and art form I have yet to perfect.

So if you have someone in your life that has a birthday between now and the New Year show them a little extra love and make these Birthday Cake Oreo Cookie Balls. I’m sure they would appreciate it more than you know.

  1. Love these!! Golden Oreos are my favorite too. Also…my birthday is exactly 2 weeks after Christmas…just short enough that it creeps up on everyone right as they are recovering. I always wanted a Summer birthday so bad!!

  2. Love that you stuck a candle on top of one.

  3. This is amazing!! My sister’s birthday is one week before Christmas and she’s pregnant, so we’re planning on throwing her a birthday party/baby shower! She would love these! Thanks for the idea! :)

  4. Golden Oreos and regular Oreos? Sooo, we’re talking marble birthday cake. :D They sound delicious. How is it that I’ve only ever made Oreo truffles once? I nee to rectify this situation.

    It was funny hearing you say you used to visit your grandparents in Michigan around Christmas every couple years, because when I was younger, my family used to…go visit my grandma and grandpa…in Michigan…around Christmas…every couple years. Are you secretly future me?

    My childhood best friend was born three days after Christmas, but her parents always threw her a giant party separate from the holidays. I love parents that do stuff like that to make their kid feel special. My birthday falls on Cinco de Mayo and I never had birthday parties growing up, so the only thing I’ve ever really registered about it, living in southern New Mexico, is that the restaurants are always too crowded to go out to eat. :P

  5. First of all, congrats on having the Oreo folks reach out to you. You’re hitting the big time and you deserve it!
    I’m one of those December babies too. I love the sprinkles. These are so cute

  6. I love these!! My sister’s birthday is a week after Christmas and we all struggle to make it stand out but almost always fail. These cake balls will definitely help!

  7. I love cookie balls and this post! Probably, since my birthday is usually the week of Thanksgiving, and growing up I would have to celebrate my birthday in January, because everyone was always out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday. However, since Thanksgiving is later this year, I get a whole week of birthday celebrations all to myself! : )

    These looks yum as. Been following you since I lived in Seattle and now have lived in New Zealand going on 4 years. Wish I could make these right now, but we are heading into Summer and heating up.

  9. Cute idea! There’s nothing better than a simple recipe.

  10. As someone who can totally relate to your cousin (my birthday is 8 days from Christmas), I love that you made something special to celebrate her birthday!! I hope she would enjoy these cookie balls as much as I know I would. LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!

  11. If you love mint, the mint oreo cookie balls are heaven! I also tried the strawberries and cream oreos in this recipe and WOW!! Just WOW! You’re right, these are simple but people seem to be amazed. ; ) Guess it’s not a secret anymore!

  12. YES I love these! And they are so easy to make festive for any event. My favorite is to make them with mint Oreos and color some vanilla almond bark a light green color and sprinkle some shamrock sprinkes on top. Perfeclty festive St Pats day treats!
    Another yummy variation is to use peanut butter instead of cream cheese………drooling
