Chocolate Covered Cookie Balls with OREO® Recipe

This easy-to-make, no-bake recipe is perfect year-round, and is sure to make any chocoholic squeal in delight! For Easter, shape dough into “eggs” instead of balls!

1) Crush OREO® Cookies into fine crumbs (you can use a food processor or blender, or place the cookies in a baggie and crush with a rolling pin).

2) Use electric mixer to mix the crumbs with softened cream cheese.

3) Shape mixture into balls approximately 1″ diameter each (or into egg shapes for Easter) and place on a heavy weight dipping sheet lined cookie sheet.

4) Freeze for 2 hours so that the balls will chill. (Optional: Put individual balls on a sucker stick before you freeze them to make them Oreo Cookie Ball Pops!)

5) After the balls are chilled, melt chocolate using instructions that came with your compound chocolate.

7) Using a fork or other metal utensil, add one frozen Oreo cookie ball at a time to the melted chocolate and turn to coat. Tap on edge of pan to get excess chocolate off and prevent excessive pooling of chocolate. (Optional: Immediately roll chocolate dipped ball in decorative topping.)

Place on glossy side of heavy weight dipping sheet lined tray and refrigerate on a level shelf for approximately 10-15 minutes until set-up (hardened).

Because of the cream cheese, keep chilled in an airtight container until ready to serve.
