Oreo Balls. Oreo Truffles. There are Oreos in these? People who don’t even LIKE Oreo cookies love these! This recipe seems to have been around since the beginning of Oreos, yet I didn’t know about it until a few years ago. Now we have them every Christmas! They are incredibly easy to make and whether or not you like Oreos (it doesn’t seem to matter!) . . . . . well, you will LOVE these! These are undoubtedly the most simple things I make at Christmas. And they are one of the favorites of everyone. Every year there are friends who have never tasted them who goe crazy over them!
1 (14.3 ounce – Previously 16 ounce) package Oreo cookies, crushed
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (12 ounce) bag Ghirardelli Dark Melting Wafers 1 (12 ounce) package Ghirardelli White Melting Wafers
Mix crushed Oreos and cream cheese together by hand.
Roll into walnut size balls.
Chill for an hour.
Melt white melting wafers.
Stick a toothpick in the Oreo ball and dip it in the melted white chocolate.
Allow to harden on wax paper.
Takes about 15 minute.
While waiting, melt about dark melting wafers.
My family happens to love the white chocolate. Dip the Oreo balls in whichever chocolate your family likes! After the chocolate has hardened, I dip the top of the balls in chocolate to hide the toothpick’s hole and add a yummy layer of chocolate on top.
When Oreo balls are no longer sticky to the touch, decorate with drizzles of chocolate and white chocolate. (Or not – I didn’t this time!)
You can use a sandwich bag with a tiny hole cut in one corner to drizzle the chocolate – or drizzle with a spoon.
