Ok so my favorite cookies are Oreos! Mmm... there's nothing like a handful of Oreos and a cold glass of milk.
A few years ago my mom and I tried this recipe for Oreo Balls. Talk about heaven in your mouth! They are delicious. You can never eat just one! They remind me of truffles but taste soooo much better!
So here is the SUPER EASY recipe for Oreo Balls...
First, your ingredients. You'll need a standard size carton of Oreos, 1 block of cream cheese, and some white chocolate or bark. Normally we use white almond bark or white chocolate chips but I'm making these for a family with nut allergies so I'm being very careful. Oh, and we are all for generic products in this family but this is just one of the recipes you can't skimp on. The taste just isn't the same.
Next, blend the Oreos, a little at a time, in a food processor or blender. You can pound them by hand but it takes FOREVER. Sometimes some of the cookies don't chop all the way. Just throw them in with the next batch.
When you finish turning the cookies into a fine crumble, add the block of cream cheese. This is where things get MESSY! Mix the cream cheese and Oreo crumbs until you get a dough. I've tried spoons, pastry cutters, everything. Nothing seems to beat my God-given hands for this part. On the plus side, your hands feel really smooth after :)
You should get a dough like this. This is actually a double batch (2 packages of Oreos, 2 blocks of cream cheese).
After that, you'll need to roll the dough into about quarter size balls. The number of balls you get will depend on the size you make them. I got about 150 from 2 batches so about 75 from one. Then toss them in the refrigerator for a little bit to get cool. They're easier to dip in the white chocolate that way.
While they chill in the fridge, start melting the chocolate/bark. Remember to do it a few seconds at a time so you don't burn or overcook it. Once it's nice and melted, drop an Oreo ball in, coat it in the chocolate, then place it on wax paper to cool. It's important to use wax paper as it peels off the best when it's hardened. Let them cool before removing to a serving plate.
Now you have delicious Oreo Balls! I throw mine in the fridge because they taste yummy when they're cool but they are just fine at room temperature too. Be sure to keep them covered though or toss them in a plastic bag so they last. Although, they might not make it a whole day once you taste them ;)
These are always a great hit at parties and stuff. My family can't get enough of them either!
Hope you enjoy!
