Oreo Circles


The possibilities are endless.
Plus these are fat free.
And they make great stocking stuffers.
Please add your favorite holiday treat if you even want to. Thanks and goodbye.

Oreo Balls Recipe Ingredients

* 8 ounces softened cream cheese or whipped cream cheese
* 18 ounces package of Oreo cookies, crushed
* 2 cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips (or a big block of dipping chocolate that you can get at Maceys or somewhere else like a candy dipping store)
* 1 tablespoon shortening (except I think shortening is sort of sick so I don't use it usually)

Oreo Balls Recipe Instructions

Mix cream cheese with electric mixer until fluffy. Add the crushed Oreos and beat on high until well mixed. Chill for at least 2 hours in the freezer. Then roll Oreo cookie mix into one inch Oreo Balls.

Next, melt the chocolate chips and shortening with a double boiler (why would you use a double boiler if the other option is a microwave?) or in the microwave.

Dip the Oreo balls completely into the melted chocolate using tongs or a toothpick.

Put on wax paper. After the Oreo balls harden, keep them in the refrigerator.

Makes about 3 or 4 dozen Oreo Balls, depending on the size

if you use double stuff, they are even more fat-free.
