Oreo Ball Recipe
Oreo's have always been one of my favorite cookies so when I first found out that it is possible to make an amazing recipe that most people had never heard out of them I was all over them like a fat kid on cake (or on Oreos I guess).
To make this recipe even easier, it only requires four different ingredients and doesn't require you to use your oven making Oreo balls a fantastic treat for Office pot lucks or for entertaining your friends this holiday season. If you have not heard of Oreo balls you might have heard of them under a different name; reindeer droppings! While reindeer droppings sounds a little less attractive the kids around the house will find them even more fun to munch on.
These treats are very sweet and are quite rich, so while they are delicious they are also very rich and filling which means you know that a few dozen Oreo balls is going to last a lot longer than a few dozen chicken wings.
Oreo Balls Ingredients
1 18 oz bag of crushed Oreo cookies
8 oz of whipped cream cheese or softened cream cheese
2 cups milk chocolate chips (semi sweet if you like it a little less sweet)
1 tablespoon shortening
Preparing your Oreo Balls
First of all, get out your electric mixer and start mixing the cream cheese until it is light and fluffy.
Next add the crushed oreos and beat on high until they are well mixed.
Place your mixture in the freezer for a couple of hours to harden up the mixture.
Roll the Oreo mixture into balls roughly one inch in diameter
Melt the chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave for as long as needed to completely melt the chips
using a tooth pick, dip each Oreo ball into the liquid chocolate coating each of them completely
Place the dipped Oreo balls on waxed paper to cool.
Store the Oreo balls/reindeer droppings in your freezer or fridge
This should yeild three to four dozen Oreo balls depending how large you make each one.
Mix things up!
