OREO BALLS

This is one recipe that is ALWAYS a winner!!  The Oreo Balls are delicious and VERY rich!!  Almost like a truffle but soooooo much better.  My brother-in-law actually requests these every year for Christmas.....These are a true Holiday Hit!!  And SOOOOO easy to make.


You will need:

 8oz Package of Cream Cheese, Softened
18oz Package of Oreos
2 cups of chocolate chips, Milk, Dark, or White.
Sprinkles or any decorative topping of your choice

Directions:

1. Grind the entire package of Oreos together (whole cookie), until they look like coffee grounds

2. Mix cream cheese until fluffy, then add ground up oreo and mix together.  I suggest using your hands to really get a nice consistency.

3. Roll the dough into balls, 1-1 1/2 inch balls, place on cookie sheet covered in wax paper, then place the balls in the freezer for at least 2 hours.

4. In a double broiler, melt the chocolate, then using tooth picks dip the ENTIRE ball into the chocolate.  Then place back onto wax paper.  Make sure to decorate the balls before the chocolate hardens....unless you are drizzling another kind of chocolate, then wait until they harden slightly.

5. When finished dipping all of the Oreo balls, place them in the refrigerator for another 3-4 hours.  Should be able to make 3-4 dozen, depending on the size ball.

6. Remove from the fridge and ENJOY!! Just make sure you have PLENTY of MILK...you will need it for these decedent treats!!

I have a small Food Processor that I use, but if you have to, you could probably just throw them in a ziplock and smash them against the kitchen counter!! HAHA...Its all about being creative!!
