Oreo Balls

1 pkg Oreo cookies
1 - 8 oz. pkg cream cheese
Dipping Chocolate

Crush Oreo cookies til they become fine crumbs. (I put them in my food processor) Put into mixing bowl with softened cream cheese & beat til smooth. Shape into 1" balls. Place in a plastic container & freeze til firm. If you need to layer them, put wax paper or plastic wrap between layers.

Melt dipping chocolate on low heat. (I use Wilton's Candy Melts) Add 1-2 tsp shortening while melting. Dip ball into melted chocolate & place on wax paper to dry. Return balls to freezer or refrigerator. They soften quickly.

I get the colored Wilton Candy Melts from Michaels. Wal-Mart carries them also but usually only the white or brown chocolate. Wilton Candy Melts have the smoothest results.

YUM!! Lisa (hmm...guess I can't link in a comment?) has another ball-and-chocolate recipe that involves peanut butter that also looks yummy. Keep the holiday treats coming!!

Anyone have good crockpot recipes? I'd love to see them.

Oreo balls, hey?? Hmmm...there's a joke in there somewhere... heehee

But seriously, sounds delicious. Iv'e also tried the ball-and-chocolate-and-peanut butter recipe referenced by the previous commenter (commentor??) and it is VERY delicious.

These are awesome. We made them for my last day at work but I dipped them in white chocolate. They were fabulous!

Great recipe! Thanks for sharing. I used mint creme oreos and then sprinkled crushed candy canes on the top of the balls before the chocolate coating hardened. Yum.

I made these too--yummy! i wish i would have read Andrea's comment first as i would have done what she did for a more holiday-like taste. Still, anything dipped in chocolate is good by me--and they were a hit.
