This post is from last year. I just finished making some of these delicious Oreo Balls today, and thought I would share the recipe again.
While I was rolling the mixture into balls our doorbell rang…twice! Two different neighbors stopped by with some edible gifts for us. How sweet of them to share their labor of yummy love with their neighbors. I though perhaps I should take them all some of these delectable Oreo Balls but when I thought of all the work involved in crushing the Oreos, mixing with cream cheese and rolling them into balls, I decided against it. Besides, due to some recent events in my life, I’m just trying to get through the holidays the best way I can.
Here’s last year’s post.
I have a new obsession this year, it’s Oreo® Balls. I tasted one last year and knew I had to have the recipe. I have it! And I have already made two batches. The first batch was a bit of a learning curve for me. I usually have a trial run while I figure out just how it’s supposed to be done.
One of the best things about these cookies is they only require 3 ingredients. The taste reminds me of cake pops but a bit more gooey on the inside.
My first batch looked a little something like this:
I added the red sprinkles for a festive appeal and to hide the chocolate bits that were mixing in with the white dipping bark.
The next batch came out just how I wanted them to. I am giving them to my customers for a Christmas gift along with a few other treats.
For now I will share the Oreo Cookie Ball recipe with you!
OREO® COOKIE BALLS
1 8 ounce package of cream cheese
36 Oreo cookies, finely chopped
16 ounces of semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted
1. Mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs until well blended.
2. Shape into 48 (1 inch) balls. Freeze 10 minutes. (Hint: I kept them in the freezer longer. Keeps the crumbs out of the melted dipping chocolate.)Dip balls in melted chocolate, place in single layer on waxed paper.
3. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.
That’s it! Enjoy and don’t forget to share!
