Oreo Balls

Okay so last year I came across this new DELISH receipe. OREO balls. I mean seriously they should be illegal to make and share (who am I kidding - I don't share - okay okay so I do but not willingly). Anyways it is so simple it's insane.

You'll need one pkg of Oreo cookies (double stuffed or mint work as well but are VERY rich - don't say I didn't warn you), Cream Cheese and Dipping Chocolate. That's it.

Easy Peasy.

So since my food processor hates me and didn't want to crush the Oreo's up nicely for me I went about it differently this year. It went so smoothly this way but please do it whatever way works for you.

I started by seperating the white filling from the Oreo. See pic below. (Stop drolling my goodness)

I then used my handy dandy Magic Bullet to crush up the Cookie portion of the Oreo. See nice and fine. (Okay I thought I turned that darn pic - opps)

Now the fun part. Now many will probably use a mixer or a utensil of some sort but that is not how I roll. I like to get right on in there and be a hands on baker. That's right I slap a glove on and after tossing the crushed Oreo's, white filling and cream cheese into a new bowl I just dive in and mix by hand.

Just keep mixing and mixing until you get this nice glossy mass of yummy goodness. (Shiney isn't it?)

Now you'll start pinching off a bit (or use a small melon baller) and roll it into a ball. See?

Aren't they pretty all lined up? After rolling all of it into a ball I pop them into the freezer just to give them a chance to harden up.

Okay now you'll take and coat each ball in some yummy DELISH chocolate. (Again I swore I turned that pic)


Line your counter with wax paper and drop those yum good little evil balls on it to dry. Top with sprinkles if you like.

Ready for their close up! YUM!

Now go make some and don't come back here and try to blame me. I am not your mother and I didn't make you do a damn thing. ENJOY!~
