Oreo Cookie Balls

Well, it’s 2013.  Yikes.  Do you ever look in the mirror and think “what the heck happened to me?!?!”  Yeah.  I’m having one of those moments.  I’m old.  What the heck?!?!  When did this happen???  So what do I do?  Bake, of course =o)
 
So I’m sorry to say that the next few (or more than a few) posts aren’t healthy and low cal.  They are sweet and delicious!  I hope you don’t mind.  It makes me feel better.  Let’s call it “therapy”.
 
 
Oreo Cookie Balls
 
* 1 package of Oreos (any kind)
* 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
* melting chocolate
 
Crush the Oreos in a food processor.  Mix cookie crumbs with cream cheese until blended.
 
Shape into balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper.
 
 
Place in the freezer for about 10 minutes.  While they are freezing, melt your chocolate.  You can melt it in a double boiler or in the microwave in 30 second spurts.
 
Dip each Oreo cookie ball in the chocolate and place back onto waxed paper.
 
 
Decorate with sprinkles or crushed Oreos while the chocolate is still wet.
 
 
Voila!  Oreo Cookie Balls.  Easy!  And oh, so good!
I tried to use white chocolate on some.  Every time I try to dip anything in white chocolate it’s lumpy.  Is it just me?
Not as pretty as the milk chocolate ones.  It’s hard to beat milk chocolate!  
Take a look at the inside.  Delicious!!!
 
 
Enjoy!  And happy 2013!

  2. Hi Erin, long time no see. Stopping by to wish you a happy new year! So glad to see you are still going strong over here. Your blog has always been one of my very favorite. Still having fun over at my blog but not much kitchen creativity these days. Sure can relate to the beginning of this post. When I look in the mirror I wonder who that old lady is looking back at me! The oreo cookie balls look delicious – yum! Cheers to the new year 🙂

  4. oreo truffles are one of my very favorite treats to make! they are so easy and taste WAY too good to be that easy. I can never stop popping them. 🙂

  5. I think white chocolate has something against me, so don’t feel badly, but these still look yummy!

  6. WOW! That looks great, yummy treats. Thanks Erin for visiting me and for your sweet words. Happy New Year!

  7. I like your therapy. It’s midnight and I’m munching on one of the most delicious Chocolate Macadamia Cookies ever made. I’ll blog about it soon.
    I think I must be the only baker in the universe that has not made a cookie ball–crazy huh!
    But I like Oreos, cream cheese and chocolate so these must be delicious.
    Have a very Happy New Year.
