1 package Oreos (not Double Stuf)
1 8-oz package cream cheese
1 package almond bark (milk or white chocolate)
Crush the cookies by using a mixer. Or, you can seal them in a zip lock bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
Put crushed cookies into large bowl. Add cream cheese to bowl and cream together.
Roll into 1-inch balls and chill (important!).
When the cookie balls are chilled, melt the almond bark.
Dip cookie balls into almond bark and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet.
Let set and eat.
Optional things to try:
- Drizzle melted white almond bark on top
- Sprinkle crushed peppermint candy on top immediately after coating with melted chocolate
- Use mint Oreos
- Use chocolate chips instead of almond bark
Oreo Ball Pops
A fun new idea for oreo balls: oreo ball pops! Who doesn’t love a good sucker? Now you can combine two of your favorite desserts into one amazing and fun dessert. Great for kids, and great for the older crowd as well! Follow along with these simple instructions to make your own:
What you will need:
– Oreo balls (make them from your favorite recipe)
– Melted chocolate
– A healthy appetite!
Go ahead and make your oreo balls from your favorite recipe, but don’t dip them in chocolate quite yet. Dip one end of each of the cookie sticks into the melted chocolate about 3/4 of an inch in, and while the chocolate is still warm, stick a cookie stick into each oreo ball chocolate-dipped side first. Place the oreo ball pops on a tray and cool in the fridge for a few hours. Once the chocolate on the sticks has hardened and the oreo balls have hardened up a bit, take them out of the fridge and then dip them as you usually would for your normal oreo ball recipe. Apply your favorite toppings and allow to cool once again.
Serve and enjoy!
My roommates girlfriend made these delicious red velvet cake balls the other night, and wow, they were amazing! They are similar to oreo balls, except that they are made of red velvet cake instead. To make your own, follow this recipe:
For the Cake:
2 1/4 cup cake flour
1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup cocoa
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 to 2 oz red food coloring
1 tsp salt
White chocolate/Milk chocolate to dip the cake balls in later
Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time and mix after each.
In another bowl, mix cocoa and food coloring until they form a paste. Add the paste mixture to the egg mixture and mix.
Add the flour, vanilla, and salt. Mix. Add the baking soda and stir gently.
Pour into pan and smooth.
Bake 20 to 30 minutes.. Remove and cool 10 minutes.
When the cake has cooled sufficiently, using a knife, cut out small “balls” of the cake (about 1-2 inches in diameter) and place them on a plate.
Melt your chocolate of choice; then, take each cake ball and, using a fork, dip it in a bowl of the melted chocolate in order to cover the cake ball completely. Place the covered balls on wax paper to cool.
If desired, you can put sprinkles, drizzle chocolate, etc on top for added appeal!
