Oreo Balls. I don’t know why but this 3 ingredient dessert intimidated me. I found this method in the Kraft Food magazine months ago, tore it out and it’s been sitting on my desk. Why? Why? This morning, I whipped these babies up in a matter of minutes. That’s right…minutes. Why was I so afraid? You should be more brave.
1 package of Oreo cookies
1 (8oz) package of cream cheese, softened
2 packages (6 squares each) of Baker’s White Chocolate, melted
In your food processor, finely crush an entire package of Oreo cookies. Mix the crushed cookies and cream cheese together in a bowl. Roll into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Freeze 10 minutes. Then, dip each ball in your melted chocolate, place back on wax paper and immediately sprinkle with sprinkles (if you so desire). Return entire pan of chocolate covered cookie balls to the refrigerator to chill at least one hour. Makes about 40 balls.
That’s it. Three simple ingredients and you have these heavenly little treats. Why do you think I love this recipe so much? Because you can Mix and Match the heck out of it! Here are some ideas:
1. Use another type of cookie…Nutter Butters, Nilla Wafers. EL Fudge, Mint Chocolate Oreos, Strawberry Wafer Cookies…I mean come on! You could go crazy on the cookie aisle!
2. Use a different type of melted chocolate…dark chocolate, milk chocolate, mint chocolate, peanut butter chocolate…
3. Add in a tablespoon of extract to the cookie ball or to the chocolate…orange, rum, cherry, almond…
4. Instead of candy sprinkles use another topping…coconut, chopped peanuts, crushed M&Ms…
5. Add some crunch to your cookie balls…stir in chopped nuts, dried fruit, chopped pieces of pretzels…whatever when you mix the cookie crumbs and cream cheese together.
Do you get my passion now? I could design an entire blog just based on cookie balls! Get creative…get in the kitchen and make some cookie balls…then email me and tell me how you Mixed and Matched. 🙂
