Okay, Okay! Here's the Oreo Ball Recipe!

Funny thing, that facebook....post how you're working on something and all the sudden you are bombarded with requests for the recipe/how to.

Luckily, I LOVE to share... I am finished with my bazillion Oreo balls for this season so have at it!

This original recipe comes from the famous http://www.bakerella.com/ so be sure to check out all her cool recipes too. There is also a slide show "how-to" on my website.

Ingredients: Makes apx. 3 dozen balls
1 Package of regular Oreos
6oz. Cream Cheese
1 bag of Chocolate Candy Melts (Hobby Lobby)

Twist the Oreos apart, leaving the cream on the cookies. Put into food processor and grind until they become fine crumbs. You do not want any large pieces. (Surprisingly, the crumbs will be dry even with the cream.)

Put the crumbs in a large bowl and add the softened cream cheese ½ at a time. Mix well WITH YOUR HANDS! Roll gumball sized balls in the palm of your hand and place on wax paper. FYI – These are really rich so if you make them any larger – it’s almost too much of a good thing.

Melt the chocolate melts according to package instructions. Put 4 or 5 balls in the chocolate at a time and roll them around to coat evenly. Using a fork and a spoon, remove the balls individually, tapping the excess chocolate off as you place them back on the wax paper. Before they harden, sprinkle with your favorite topping, if desired.  No need to sprinkle them as soon as you put them on the paper.You can usually dip an entire bag before they dry out. Eat them all yourself or wrap them up and give away as gifts.

Green Tip:
For my teacher gifts, I dove into my clean recycle stash for wrapping ideas. I covered Velveeta cheese boxes with tissue paper, wrapped the Oreo balls in colored saran wrap and placed them in the box. Then I put the box in a gift bag. You can also reuse the original Oreo cookie plastic container (see photo). Just cover them with colored saran wrap and top with a bow. Easy and inexpensive!
