Oreo balls are easy to make and are always a crowd-pleasing party favorite. Chocolate Mickey Oreo Balls (truffles) are made with only 5 ingredients and shaped with a cookie cutter. The milk chocolate covered Oreo truffles are decorated with red chocolate candy coating and white sprinkles inspired by Mickey Mouse.
My family recently visited Disneyland and we were inspired to make a new Mickey-shaped treat after our trip. Knowing our love for Oreo balls, I wanted to try making Mickey Oreo cookie balls using a cookie cutter. I’m thrilled with the way these tasty no-bake treats turned out.

The recipe is made with our 3-ingredient OREO Ball Recipe. The mixture is spread onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. After the truffle mixture is firm, a cookie cutter is used to create the Mickey shape.
The entire truffle is then covered in melted chocolate. Once the chocolate is firm, red candy coating is applied to the bottom half of the truffle to resemble Mickey’s iconic look. To finish, white sprinkles are used to create buttons on the front of the pants.
If you haven’t tried Oreo ball truffles, I highly recommend making a batch this weekend. It’s simple and perfect for parties. It’s always the first dessert to go at gatherings. They’re the perfect bite-sized treat.
Ingredients for Oreo Ball Truffles
- Oreo cookies – regular or gluten-free Oreo cookies work best with this recipe. Avoid using double-stuffed cookies, the extra filling will make the truffles too soft to hold their shape.
- Cream cheese – acts as a binding agent for the cookie crumbs to create a truffle-like texture.
- Chocolate – milk, semi-sweet, or dark chocolate to dip the truffles into.
- Red melting wafers – the red candy coating is lightly added to the bottom of the truffles by either dipping the truffles in or spreading the melted chocolate using a spatula.
- White sprinkles – Mickey’s classic white buttons are made with flat white sprinkles on top of the red candy coating.
- Mickey cookie cutter – the smallest Mickey cookie cutter is about 1 inch, just the right size for Oreo truffles.
