Peggi Anne's Story

I started making these several years ago, when my niece gave me the recipe. Her's didn't have mint in them though. I added it. I have tried about everything to coat them with. Don't do crushed peppermint! It will start to drip on you. Like, turn to water & be real sticky. I do like crushed pretzels though as a coating. It gives it a salty/sweet taste.

Ingredients

1 pkg
chocolate oreo's ( not double stuff)
1 (8 oz.) pkg
cream cheese, softened
DIPPING CHOCOLATE
12 oz
chocolate almond bark
1/4
block paraffin
1/2 tsp
peppermint oil (adjust to your taste)
toppings of your choice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Chop Oreo cookies in food processor until you can see no more white in them.
2
Add the cream cheese & process until you can see no more white again & the cream cheese is fully incorporated.
3
Form into small balls & place in fridge for about 1 hour to firm up.
4
MAKING THE TOPPING:
5
In a glass bowl, melt the chocolate with the almond bark by starting on 1 minute, then stirring & repeating every 30 seconds until melted. Do not over-melt or it will seize up on you. Also, never get even 1 drop of water in it, or it will seize up.
6
Now, add the mint oil & adjust to your taste.
7
Insert toothpick in a ball & dip into the chocolate, coating completely.
8
Now, immediately dip the top into desired topping & place on wax paper with toothpick side down.
9
If you would rather drizzle with a colored chocolate, omit step #8 & melt & color the drizzle & drizzle on top after they are set .
10
Place in fridge to set good before stacking them on top of each other.
11
These keep well, if kept in the fridge.
