Recipe type: Cookie
Cuisine: American
Serves: 3 dozen
Ingredients
  • 1 16.6 oz package Oreo Cookies (Do not use double stuffed! Save those for eating)
  • 1 8 oz brick of cream cheese
  • 3 4 oz bars of semi-sweet chocolate (340 grams)
  • Any sprinkles or decorations you want to add
Instructions
  1. Pour the Oreos in a bowl and crush with a meat cleaver. Alternatively, you could put them in two ziplock bags (one inside the other) and tell your kids to go nuts on them. Once the Oreos are in coarse chunks, place them in the food processor and pulse them a few times.
  2. Add the cream cheese to food processor and pulse until well blended. This is tough work for your mixer, and should make you pause and appreciate the conveniences of modern life! You will have to open the lid and move the contents around many times until you get the right consistency. You’ll know when you’re done. The mixture will be glistening, dark, and smooth.
  3. Roll mixture into small balls and place on wax paper on a cookie sheet.
  4. Chill in fridge for ½ hour.
  5. Melt chocolate bars in double boiler until smooth and beautiful.
  6. Dip oreo balls in chocolate. This can be messy if you don’t use a spoon. Resist the temptation to use your fingers or you will have unappetizing fingerprints on your Oreo balls. I prefer to dump the balls one by one in the melted chocolate and scoop them out with a spoon onto a wax paper covered cookie sheet.
  7. Decorate the balls with sprinkles if desired. I prefer a smoother coating.
  8. Chill again in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  9. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve. Dust with cocoa or powdered sugar before serving.
