Prep Time 30 minutes
Additional Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 45 minutes


  • 1 - 15.35 oz package OREO cookies
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 12 oz light green candy melts
  • 48 red heart sprinkles


    1. Crush the OREO cookies using a food processor, or by placing them into a gallon size bag and crushing them with a rolling pin.
    2. Add crushed cookies and cream cheese to a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer, and beat until well blended.
    3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    4. Roll cookie mixture into 1 inch balls.
    5. Freeze for one hour.
    6. Pour candy into a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds, then remove and stir well. Repeat the heating and stirring process until the candy is completely melted.
    7. Remove cookie balls from the freezer, and dip them into the candy, coating the entire ball. Place the candy-coated cookie ball on the parchment paper.
    8. Place a heart sprinkle on top of the candy-coated ball.
    9. Once you have coated all of the cookie balls with candy and placed sprinkles on them, refrigerate for 1 hour to allow the candy coating to set.

Please let me know if you’d rather me start posting them along with the directions. Before, I posted the pictures within the recipe, but then all of the photos would print. It cluttered the printed recipe, I believe. Now, it can always be changed back if you all ask. I’m easy, just like my recipes.

I hope that you are enjoying all of these Grinch recipes. I’m having a BLAST with them. Above all, they are easy and they taste GOOD. I’m making one of the Grinch cherry frappuccinos almost every day.

Undoubtedly, if you take these to a party or get-together, these will be a hit! Don’t forget about my simple creamy oreo cookie dip. It will be the hit of a party too.
