The immediate face and/or vocal reaction of the boys who tried these was equivalent or equal to “OH MY GOD”. It was highly entertaining, and coupled with the fact of how few ingredients are in these highly addictive little treats, it was easily the most talked about food item at the party!
Corrie has already requested we bring these to his family’s Thanksgiving gathering if that tells you anything.
I do have a suggestion and alternate plan for next time, I made this in a food processor, but I think I would definitely use a spoon or other similiar implement (which the recipe does suggest to do) to mix in the cream cheese next time. I think it pulverized it a little too well, and they turned out very soft. I think they would keep their shape slightly better by not using it. I also want to try these with mint oreos sometime…yum!
Make these immediately, but just be sure to be prepared for some inappropriate but hilarious reactions if you have any mid-20 year old men at your shin-dig. 😉
- 1 package Oreo cookies, divided (you will use all of the cookie including the cream center)
- 1 8oz. package cream cheese, softened
- white chocolate bark
If you want to use Oreos for decoration, finely crush 7 cookies in a food processor or place them in a ziploc bag and crush into a fine consistency. Reserve for later.
Crush remaining cookies, and stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together.
Roll the mixture into 1″ balls, and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. Freeze the oreo balls for 10-15 minutes to help the balls retain their shape during dipping.
Melt chocolate as directed on the package and then dip balls into chocolate, tap off extra and set aside on wax paper covered cookie sheet to dry.
If you’re using the crushed cookies, sprinkle it now as the bark tends to set quickly! I melted some chocolate chips for a quick decoration.
Refrigerate once dry.
