Oreo Balls

The amazingly talented Shannon made some incredibly delicious Oreo Balls for the Ornament Exchange at Courtney's house last week. She explained the recipe to me and I decided to give it a shot. What a challenge it was!

Three youtube videos later, I was still perplexed how to dip them in the melted chocolate. I tried two spoons, a toothpick, my fingers and then just one spoon...which was by far the most successful. I dipped about 10 and then tried to add the sprinkles, but the chocolate had hardened too much for them to stick, so I had to add a dollop. After C ate one he proclaimed that they taste the same as the chocolate covered Oreos you can get at the store. Sigh.

I have no clue how Shannon makes such beautiful cakes, cookies and candies. I am truly in awe because everything I attempt is a wreck.

Oreo Balls

8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
1 package (1.5 pounds) Oreos
1/2 package white almond bark

In a large food processor, pulse the Oreos to a crumb consistency. Add the cream cheese and pulse until combined. Roll the mixture into walnut sized balls and set on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper. Chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour. Melt the chocolate bark per the package directions then dunk the chilled balls into it, I found one spoon to be the easiest dunking method. Sprinkle immeadiately with any decoration you like, I used red and green sprinkles. Return to the refrigerator and store in a closed container.
