When I made these Oreo balls I had no idea that they were going to disappear so fast. The kids were all over them. Believe me if you haven’t tried Oreo balls, you’re missing out. Oreo balls are a rich and delicious dessert. Is doesn’t require much ingredient to make but only 4 items you need. It takes very less time to prepare Enjoy!
1/2 pkg.(8 oz.) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
18 OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 pkg. Wilton candy melt (I chose mixture of white, brown and pink but you can use any chocolate melt)
1 tbsp Vegetable shortening
Optional toppings: additional chopped Oreo cookies, chocolate sprinkles or a drizzle of a contrasting color of melted chocolate.
Mix cream cheese with electric mixer until fluffy. Add the crushed Oreos and beat on high until well mixed. Shape into 24 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 1hour.
Next, melt the chocolate chips and shortening with a double boiler or in the microwave. I prefer double boiler.
Dip balls in melted chocolate; place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan. To easily coat cookie balls with the melted chocolate, add cookie balls, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2 forks to roll cookie balls in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove balls with forks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Place cookie balls in prepared pan.
Sprinkle cookie balls with additional cookie crumbs or chocolate sprinkle or drizzle with melted chocolate. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.
