Oreo Balls

I wanted to make a different dessert this year for Thanksgiving.  Something bite size, but not a traditional cookie.  So, I decided to make Oreo balls.

They are very simple to make and a kid friendly recipe.


1 package regular Oreos
1 8oz package of cream cheese
2 cups chocolate chips

Here are the step by step instructions:

Put all the cookies in a gallon ziplock bag.

Crush cookies with a rolling pin.  Make sure you have removed the air from the ziplock bag.  I hit the cookies with the rolling pin to really crush them.

After the cookies are crushed, cube the cream cheese and add to the bag.  Knead the bag to mix the cream cheese and the cookies.

This is what it should look like once mixed, a cookie dough consistency.

Pinch off the dough and roll into 1 inch balls.  Place balls on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper or parchment paper.  Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until the balls are firm.

Measure 2 cups of chocolate chips.  Place in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 second intervals.  Stir and repeat heating until all the chips are melted.

Using toothpicks, roll the balls in the melted chocolate.

Place coated balls back in the refrigerator to harden the chocolate.  Once hardened, place into a container and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Very rich and delicious!
