When I mentioned on facebook that I was making Oreo balls for Patterson’s birthday, I was surprised that several people had never heard of them. They are a delicacy that I learned about from my sister-in-law, Elizabeth. She came home from college one weekend and made them for us. I thought they would be perfect for a little girl’s birthday party.
One bag of Oreos (I use Great Value Twist and Shouts)
One 8 oz block of cream cheese, softened
One box of almond bark or white baking chocolate
Break up the entire bag of Oreos and mix with cream cheese in a food processor. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Roll Oreo mixture into walnut-sized balls and place on wax paper. Put in fridge for at least an hour. In a glass bowl or measuring cup, melt the almond bark or chocolate in the microwave n high for 1.5 minutes. Stir well and melt for another 30 seconds. Using a toothpick, dip each Oreo ball into melted chocolate, covering completely. Place back onto wax paper and refrigerate again, until chocolate is hardened again. Store in fridge. Enjoy!
