For Valentine’s Day, give someone a big kiss!

An Oreo Kiss, that is. So, if you have a chocolate lover on your hands, then try these tasty treats and their hands might just be all over you.

Oreo Kisses

Oreo Kisses

1 package oreo cookies (divided… use cookie including the cream center)
1 8oz. package cream cheese (softened)
chocolate bark

1. Finely crush all but seven cookies in a food processor or place them in a ziploc bag and crush into a fine consistency.
2. Stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together.
3. Roll the mixture into 1″ balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet.
4. Then, begin to form the shape of a kiss. Flattening the bottom and forming a point at the top. (Mine ended up about 1.5″ tall)
5. It helps to put the uncoated balls in the freezer for a few minutes to keep the mixture from starting to fall apart when you drop into the melted chocolate.
6. Melt chocolate as directed on package and then dip “kisses” one at a time into chocolate, tap off extra and slide them off spoon onto wax paper covered cookie sheet to dry.
7. Once dry, refrigerate and enjoy! Oh yeah, just eat the extra seven cookies.

1. Handwrite your messages or create them on the computer. Cut out the strips (about 1/4″ tall and however wide you need).
2. Cut up some square sheets of aluminum foil (about 5.5″ square)
3. Place dry kiss in center and start wrapping the foil around the base. Insert message near top and secure it by pressing the foil together at top.

Hello! You’re truly a baking genius with inestimable talent! Anyway, i’m really excited to try this but there’s one thing troubling me – how do i roll the mixtures into balls and subsequently mould them into kisses? Aren’t they mushy/liquid-y? Sorry, amateur in the house ^^v

Please do help! Tanks!

I’m a little late finding these and yet right on time! I bought Oreos and my hubby asked me last night if I wanted some, and I said “sure, but I was going to make Oreo truffles” he promptly said “NEVERMIND make the truffles” So I think I will make the kisses with little messages and take them to his office on Friday, it’s our anniversary. So perfect timing! Thanks so much for all of your great ideas! I CAN’T Wait for your book!!!

Okay….call me mother-of-the-groomzilla…but I can’t wait to make these for my son’s upcoming wedding. Do you think these would freeze?

Also, I’ve seen some darling bride and groom cake pops…haven’t located any directions…do you have any ideas?

I’m from South Africa and somehow managed to find your blog when googling some recipes. I absolutley LOVE everything on your blog and really really want to try the recipes, but can’t get hold of a lot of the ingredients.. the most important being candy melts.. even in a lot of the really good baking stores I can only find cooking chocolate and normal chocolate… :(:( What can I do???

Lauren said...

These look great, especially for a complete chocaholic! One question though- do you keep the white filling from the oreos and mix it in? I guess I’m confused by the word “divided…”
Thanks! Can’t wait to try these!

Important information for Canadians! I live on a border town and would like to inform other Canadians about the mixture when using cookies from our country. Did you know that we (Canadians) get more Oreo’s in our package than our neighbours to the south (Americans)? And, that our Oreo’s appear to be a bit thinner. I made a batch of both, Canadian and American kisses. The American Oreo’s made a much sturdier kiss, the Canadian kiss was a little soft-ish. Sorry, that sounded kind of funny, we Canadians kiss beautifully! My recommendation is to use the American Oreo’s if you can! Bakerella is the best, I am addicted!

These are so adorable – I think I’ll try them for my hubby for Valentines day!!! They are just too cute and I’m hoping with the cream cheese they will not be a sweet as some of the cake pops I’ve tried….

i think these are absolutely genius and want to make them to pass out to my friends for valentines day, but i don’t know how many servings this recipe makes. Could you tell me an approximate using the size you used? thank you :]

Linda said...

I thought this was such a cute idea but instead of the Oreo, I used peanut butter. I hope my boyfriend likes them!

samantha denise said...

hi bakerella!! i followed this recipe but made hearts instead of kisses and stuck them on lollipop sticks for valentines day.. most of them come off when i dip them in the chocolate but they still turned out ok.. though not as fabulous as yours..;)

i used compound chocolate and it was a bit difficult to dip because the consistency was so thick,, do you have some remedy for that?

anyways i had lots of fun making the oreo pops(?) and they’re super delicious.. i wish i could show you some of the photos..

thanks for creating this blog.. its just so amazing.. i wish u could come here to the Philippines…=)

Do you think it would work if I made bigger kisses? Like three or four big ones?
And the hubs doesn’t like cream cheese. Is there anything I can substitute for it?

Kimberly said...

What kind of BARK do you use? Please help make mine a success, I am at my wits end trying to figure these cuties out! Thanks!!!!

Hi, I just discovered your website…it is amazing!!!
This recipe sounds deliciuos!!
What is the weight of the oreo packages?
’cause I live in Italy and i don’t know if we have the same box here…
Thank you!

Sheila said...

question, I’ve made the pops a few times and I will be making some for this Sunday. I’ve noticed that every now and then the cake will push through the chocolate and look like little worms when they are drying, Freaked me out at first. What causes this and how do you prevent it from happening?

Julia said...

Hello all
To every package of oreos (or any other cookie i use) I throw in a tub of icing instead of the cream cheese. I think they taste better and can last longer if you don’t want to sit on the couch and just eat all of them.
Love you Bakerella!!

God truely puts people and things in your path for a reason. I stumbled on your site and now i am hooked. i love that you love what you do and you love to share your knowledge. I am a person who has always loved crafts and anything that will make me think and be creative and that what cake design does. however i have realize that i need to learn how to bake as well because my grandmother wont be around all the time and plus after baking my first cake i was hooked. i just dont know how to create receipes. But with your help i think i can definitely learn something and add my own flare to an already perfect receipe.

choco chips just need a tablespoon of shortening to a pound of chips to get it smmoooooooth. I usually can’t find almond bark and our house buys costco size bags of chips so always have chips around! works just like almond bark at a much cheaper price!
LOVE these kisses. Just made your nutter butter truffles!!
OMG TDF!! This after making the red velvet, choco-choco and lemon pops this past weekend;…
thanks! i have perused your site daily for the past week. am hooked!

I’ve been making Oreo Balls for years, for bday party favors and class treats and for teachers. They’ve always been a huge hit! I even made them into pumpkins last year for my dd’s fall bday – orange chocolate with a chocolate chip for a stem. Big hit! Your idea of the chocolate kiss is a GREAT idea! I think I’ll do this for the teachers for the last day of school. :) Thx!

Bakerella…I tried to make this adorable kisses yesterday…everything was fine but I had some trouble with chocolate…

First: I bought cake chocolate bark and the container was made of plastic so I put it into a pan with water and waited to boil but the container started to melt so….I took the container and put it into the microwave and the chocolate just boiled up and It became too dense and it was so difficult to drop the kisses because the choocolate wasn´t liquid enough…so I took the chocolate and spread it to the kisses with a silicone spatula…the taste was good but the finish looks more like a truffle than like a kiss :(

What should I do next time? Maybe other kind of chocolate? Or another technique to melt it?

I want to know what happen to the 7 oreo’s…do ya just eat them? or use them as a sacrifice to the baking gods?

January 13, 2013 12:55 PM
Lydia said...

Wow, these look great! I live in Australia, so I didn’t know how these had anything to do with kisses when I read this post, but my American friend told me about hershey kisses. I think these would also taste great if you replaced the oreos with tim tams.
