Delicious Oreo Ball Recipe

Last Christmas at my grandmother's house, I discovered the most delicious little truffles. They looked like a little ball of white chocolate... but on the INSIDE was complete Oreo Bliss! Ever since, I have been searching for a recipe that is super easy AND delicious that come close to my grandmother's recipe for Oreo delicious-ness.

I came across this recipe on Pinterest (probably the BEST website ever invented), and tried it. The recipe ended up being super easy and extremely addicting! So I've decided as my first official "crafting" post on Designing Tomorrow, that I would give my version of the recipe, complete with pictures.

Main Ingredients: 
  • One package of Oreos
  • One box of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • Two to three packages of Nestle Premier White Baking Bar

  • Small Bowl
  • Two Spoons
  • Parchment Paper
  • Plates
  • Refrigerator

Step One: Put the ENTIRE package of Oreos into one of the storage sized bags. Then use your second storage sized bag to double bag the Oreos.

Step Two: After you've double bagged your Oreos... crush them... hammer them... beat them... WHATEVER you have to do to completely crush up all the Oreos.

Step Three: Put your crushed up Oreos in your large bowl.

Step Four: Place the cream cheese in your small bowl and use the microwave to soften it just a tad. (The cream cheese package has instructions on how to do this)

Step Five: Put your softened cream cheese in the same bowl as your crushed up Oreo cookies.

Step Six: Many recipes will tell you to just dig your hands in to the ingredients and mix them all up. But I like to use spoons to really smash all the cream cheese into the Oreo crumbles. This helps it get really mixed up AND avoids the mess of cookie crumbles flying all over the kitchen.

Once the Oreos look like the picture above, then continue on to Step Seven.

Step Seven: Take off your rings, and get your hands dirty! Start mixing the Oreos up until it has the consistency of the picture above.

Step Eight: tear off small pieces of the large Oreo mass and create small balls

Step Nine: Crush up the white chocolate in the small bowl. Put about a tablespoon of Crisco into the white chocolate chunks. This helps the chocolate become smooth and easy to cover the Oreo balls with.

Step Ten: Melt the chocolate according to the instructions on the package. Once done, take each oreo ball and roll it around in the chocolate and place on a plate. Once all the balls are covered in chocolate, place them in the fridge.

After about 30 minutes, you will have cool... delicious Oreo balls for everyone to enjoy!

Each batch makes about 50 Oreo balls! Enjoy!!
