Guys!! Thanksgiving is TOMORROW!!!! TOMORROW!! Can you even believe it?!?! Get those stretchy pants out! I’m so ready for it!! Need something easy & incredibly delicious to take to a friend or family’s house? Make these!!!!
The oreo balls are made with three simple ingredients! Oreos, cream cheese, and melting/bakers chocolate!
I bought three packs of oreos as I was trying to make a LOT of oreo balls. I took some to work & I saved six for Dave & I. Then I am bringing the rest of them to my neighbor’s for their Thanksgiving Corn-a-gulpia they have which consists of a ridiculous amount of food and way too much booze. It’s a ton of people & a ton of fun!!!
Take your oreo cookie and separate the cookie from the delicious cream. Add your cookies to the food processor.
Process them until they’re a fine powder.
Add your cream to your mixer with your cream cheese. I use ½ pack of cream cheese for every 1 pack of oreos.
Some people make it with just cream cheese but I’m sorry, I like the oreo cream just a little too much to not use it.
Once it’s all mixed together, you can start adding in your delicious crumbly oreo cookies.
Add a little bit at a time – Your mixer is going to be doing a LOT of work.
If your mixer can’t handle it, you can always use your hands. Just make sure the cookies all are combined with your cream cheese & oreo cream.
It looks a little bit like concrete in the picture? lol But I promise, it doesn’t taste like concrete…. not that I know what concrete tastes like.
Use your hands & start rolling your oreo mixture into balls!
and rolled and rolleddddd…………..
and then rolled some more. I’m pretty sure I made about 100 of these buggers. Depending on how large you roll them, you could get anywhere from 25-35 balls.
I bought white chocolate & dark chocolate to dip them in.
I create a double boiler by using two pots with glass bowls on top. Add water in but not enough to touch your bowl.
I love the melting wafers – They make it so simple to melt down the chocolate.
I used the entire bag of white chocolate to make the white oreo balls.
I bought six semi-sweet chocolate baking bars & used all six (with basically no chocolate left over) for the chocolate balls.
I chopped the chocolate up to allow it to melt easier.
Every time I’m working with melted chocolate I just think of Willy Wonka. Ohhhh how tempting to just eat it just like this!!!
Once I dipped the oreo balls in I set them on parchment paper.
and sprinkled on red and orange sprinkles before they dry.
I placed them into mini muffin wrappers & they do have to be refrigerated due to the cream cheese.
1 pack Double Stuffed Oreo’s
½ pack Philadelphia Cream Cheese
Semisweet chocolate for dipping
1. Separate the cookie from the stuffing in the Oreo.
2. Using a food processor, crumble the cookies into a powder like texture.
3. Mix your Oreo cream & ½ pack of cream cheese with a mixer.
4. Slowly add in your Oreo cookie crumbles until fully combined. If your mixer can’t handle the work, use your hands!
(If the mixture is a little dry you can add 1 tablespoon of water)
5. Roll the mixture into bite size Oreo balls
6. Melt chocolate over a double boiler. Dip chocolate balls in & place on parchment paper
7. Sprinkle with orange/red sprinkles
9. Once chocolate has hardened, place into mini muffin wrappers! 🙂 Remember to keep these refrigerated as there is cream cheese in them!
