CHOCOLATE COVERED OREO BALLS
Family Tested & Approved
18 oz. oreos, finely ground
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
In a food processor or blender, grind the oreo cookies until fine.
In a large bowl mix oreo crumbs, confectioners sugar and cream cheese using an electric mixer, until well blended.
Roll into walnut-sized balls, place on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper and refrigerate for an hour or when it is firm.
While you are waiting, bring water to a boil in a double boiler. Remove from heat and melt 3 to 4 chunks of chocolate bark, stirring constantly. Be sure that there are no lumps.
If you are making bonbons, stick a toothpick into the oreo ball and dip it into the melted chocolate bark.
Let the excess drip off and place onto a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper to set.
If you are using lollipop sticks, dip the tip of the stick into the melted chocolate and insert it into the oreo ball no more than half way.
Dip the oreo ball into the melted chocolate, be sure that you cover the base of the ball and 1/4 of an inch up the stick.
This helps secure the ball to the stick while the coating sets.
Gently tap the stick on the side of the bowl to get the excess off.
Sprinkle candy or tiny candy decorations onto the oreo ball while it is still wet.
Place the oreo ball into a styrofoam block to dry and set.
