Simple recipe… 3 ingredients and a little time, yield lot of “OMGs” and “I LOVE YOUS”.
If you get proposed to… I plead the fifth.
Oreo Balls (mmhmmm.. I said OREO)
1 Package Oreos
1 Block Cream Cheese
Crush the oreos SUPER fine. In a food processor if you have one.
Mix in the cream cheese (insert manual labor here, it takes a while)
roll into balls (I use the small Pampered Chef cookie scoop for size, then roll til smooth)
let chill 1 hour
then dip in melted chocolate bark (melt per package instructions).
To make mine a little smoother, I usually add about 1 tsp of solid shorting (uh...Crisco) to each 2 to 3 bricks of bark) using a toothpick.
I find it easier just to use a fork (scoop up like you would with a spoon, then tap gently so chocolate falls through the tines), though you will have a bit more chocolate waste, and really, who wants chocolate going to waste????
I'm pretty sure that is punishable by hanging in some countries.
Place on wax paper to dry.
Anyway, there you have it. Make these and people will think you are a genius. Put them on a plate with Red Velvet cake balls and Buckeyes and you'll win the Nobel.
( By the way, these so need a better name- 'balls' is rarely a good name for anything, I think I shall dress them up to be Oreo Truffles… Yeah, yeah.. Truffles.)
You can also dip these in white chocolate bark. Or drizzle with the white chocolate. Or save a few crushed cookies to sprinkle over the tops, or add pretty sprinkles, or crushed candy canes, the possibilities are endless.
And all end with YUM.
With a whisk and a dream… Tina
