Oreo Balls

Saturday, December 08, 2012

We’ve delivered these for Christmas the last two years and had subsequent complaints that we didn’t give enough and requests for the recipe. They’re that good and surprisingly easy!

1 package Oreos
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
24 oz. almond bark
˝ c. semisweet chocolate chips

Line 2 cookie sheets with waxed paper. Crush Oreos and combine with cream cheese. Roll dough into 1-inch balls; place on 1 cookie sheet. Freeze for 30 minutes.

Microwave half of the almond bark 1 minute 30 seconds; stir. Continue microwaving and stirring in 15-second intervals until melted and smooth.

Remove half of the balls from freezer. Using 2 forks, dip and roll each ball in coating; place on the 2nd cookie sheet. Melt remaining candy coating; dip remaining balls.

Microwave the chocolate chips 15 seconds, stir, and repeat until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Drizzle chocolate over truffles. Refrigerate 45 minutes, until chocolate is set. Store covered in refrigerator.

emoticon Note1: Oreo Balls are actually in the nutrition tracker, 137 calories apiece.
emoticon Note2: I realize this is not diet food, and I'm not suggesting anyone eat a dozen Oreo Balls in one sitting. Personally, I believe that even thin people and people who are working on becoming thin can have a treat now and then. YMMV.

    I made these 2 years ago for Xmas for my son's teacher. She loved them and asked for the recipe. Because they're so quick and easy to make, this is one of the few recipes I am considering doing again this year just to give away. When I went to look up the recipe on-line a few days ago, I saw some interesting variations, and one that looked good was to add a tsp of mint extract to the crushed cookie mix, or almond, if you want flavored truffles. Thanks for sharing this for all to enjoy! I love quick and easy recipes. emoticon

    What's almond bark? Sounds like you're eating trees, although I'm assuming you're not....
