Chocolate Covered Oreo Balls

“Had these on Christmas Eve and thought Santa came early! Talk about simple - and sinful! These were extremely easy (and a lot of fun) to make. We used reduced fat ( ::gasp:: ) Oreos, and they were just as good. You could use low fat cream cheese as well. We also decided that covering the *entire* ball made them a bit too sweet (yes, I know - how can that be?!?). Next time, we will just dunk the bottoms in the chocolate. DH and I can't wait to try out different combinations: Peanut butter Oreos, mint Oreos, flavored chips, adding food coloring to white chocolate (for the holidays, game day, school colors, etc) - the creative possibilities are endless!”

Directions

  1. Crush the Oreos to bits, either in a processor or plastic bag. You don't want a powder, but you don't want chunks.
  2. Mix the room temperature, softened cream cheese and Oreo bits together. If you use a hand mixer, be prepared for the mixture to get "stuck" in the paddles. We finished off using a spatula.
  3. Roll mixture into bite-sized (large grape/chestnut) pieces.
  4. Chill the balls on waxed paper for about an hour, or until firm to the touch.
  5. Melt the (white) chocolate chips in double boiler or in the microwave as instructed by the packaging.
  6. Stick a toothpick in each ball, then dip into the melted the (white) chocolate. Spin/roll excess off (slowly).
  7. Optional - If you want to add additional decorations such as sprinkles, etc - now is the time to do it.
  8. Allow to harden on wax paper, approximately 15-20 minutes.
  9. Optional - Drizzle with more chocolate and allow to harden again.
  10. Optional - Remove toothpick and refrigerate.
