Dip chilled Oreo balls in the melted candy until fully coated. Let excess drip off back into the bowl. If the candy starts to become too thick, put the bowl back in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to thin out again.
Once all cookie balls are coated, let them sit for about 5 minutes on a cooling rack, or until the candy has hardened.
Put reserved green candy in a ziploc bag, or piping bag, and snip off a tiny corner with scissors. Drizzle over the green-coated balls. Immediately add candy eyeballs while the drizzle is still wet. Repeat with purple candy.
Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.

- I have a small food processor, so I chopped the Oreos in multiple small batches and then added the crumbs to my stand mixer along with the cream cheese. If you have a full-size food processor, you can add the cream cheese directly to the crumbs in the food processor.
