A couple of weeks ago, I was reading one of the blogs that I follow ( I can't remember which one and I can't find the post but I think it was a fellow etsymom), and I came across this yummy sounding recipe for Oreo Balls.
I immediately went to the store and got the stuff I needed and proceeded to make only 1/2 of a batch. I didn't want to make the whole batch in case we didn't like them. But boy, that sure wasn't something that I needed to worry about.
My son LOVED them.
Here is the recipe:
1 - 8 oz. package of cream cheese
1 package of oreos
chocolate chips for melting
Pulverize the entire bag of Oreos in your food processor. Dump in the whole 8 oz. of cream cheese. Pulverize some more until it's all blended together and lumps up. Roll mixture into small balls about 1 inch or so in diameter. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour until they are good and chilled. Melt chocolate chips in microwave - don't forget to add in shortening so they will melt well for dipping. Dip oreo balls in chocolate until covered then put on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper. Refrigerate again until chocolate sets.
Decorate with melted white chocolate or icing in a tube that's available in stores.
I used fat free cream cheese and reduced fat oreos and it was still decadent and yummy! These are so rich that I couldn't eat more than 1 or 2 at a time. They're a great quick and easy treat. So good in fact, that I actually made them 2 weeks in a row.
If the etsymom whose blog I saw this on is reading this now, please feel free to leave a comment and take credit for your yuuuuummmmmyyyy oreo balls. This will definitely be something that I make again. It's also a great recipe to make if you have sweet little helpers because they could help you roll the balls and decorate.
