Oreo Balls

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is the food, especially the sweets!  Today I’ve got a really yummy treat that’s perfect for parties and gift giving.  I first made these Oreo Balls last Christmas, and I can’t wait to make them again!  I know your family will love them too.  And guess what? They are SUPER easy to make!

Recipe for Oreo Balls:

Ingredients:
1 (16 oz) package Oreos
1 (8 oz) cream cheese
1 package almond bark
sprinkles (optional)
wax paper
Directions:  Crush the oreos. You can do this using a food processor or blender.  Or you can place them  in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin.  Place in a bowl and add softened cream cheese.  Stir until well combined.  Chill in the refrigerator for half an or until the mixture is of a good consistency for rolling into balls.  Next scoop out the balls; you can use a cookie scoop, a spoon, or even your hands.  Roll into balls. (1 inch wide is a good size.)  Next chill in the freezer.
Now take your almond bark and melt it in the microwave.  I’d start with just half the package.  Stop the microwave and stir every 15 to 20 seconds to prevent scorching. It usually takes about a minute for the almond bark to melt in my microwave.
After the almond bark is melted, dip your balls.  I place the balls on a candy dipper for this, but you could also use a spoon, or you can stick each ball with a toothpick before freezing for easy dipping.  If the almond bark starts to harden in the bowl, microwave for an additional 15 seconds. Place your balls on wax paper.
The balls are great plain but if you wish to decorate them,  garnish with candy sprinkles or extra Oreo crumbs immediately after dipping  (before almond bark hardens).  Another way to decorate these is to drizzle them with another color almond bark. (If dipping in the brown, come back and drizzle them with the white and vice versa.)

  19. This is probably a silly question – but, once they are made can you store them at room temperature or do they need to be refrigerated/frozen?

  20. I like to make oreo brownies, but this recipe seems to be so much easier! Can't wait to try. New follower 🙂
