If you read this title and immediately thought of the Weird Al song ‘The White Stuff’, then we are definitely on the same page. If you have no idea who NKOTB is or Weird Al for that matter, then I have definitely dated myself here. If you’re interested, check out the video.
Note: No knowledge of the for mentioned song is necessary to appreciate this post!
So the BOY texted me last night to ask if one of my cake ball flavors was cookies and cream?!
I assumed he was referring to the abundance of Oreo Balls scattered throughout our freezer. This suspicion was confirmed when he sent me the above picture today showing off his afternoon plate of sweets. I packed a few Oreo Balls away special for his parents because I know they really enjoy them, and I’m hoping they actually make it to their house.
Oreo Balls are another easy, yet decadent sweet that people seem to love! Myself (and obviously the BOY) included!
Although I often make quite a mess, they are definitely worth the effort. I have seen others able to make much prettier balls, but I promise mine taste just as good!
This year, my Mom picked up the following fun Oreo flavors…
Neapolitan, Mint, and Triple Double
Last year, we made plain Oreo and Mint Oreo balls, so I was excited to add some new flavors this year. The Neapolitan has a nice strawberry flavor, and I dunked them in white chocolate.
For the mint ones, I drizzled on some extra white chocolate.
And sprinkled the tops with crushed up candy canes.
All 3 flavors turned out fantastic!
Especially the mint!
I have no idea if there will be any left when I return, so hopefully you’ve already gotten yours! Or, I will just have to bake another couple of batches!
Recipe adapted from Kraft
36 OREO Cookies, finely crushed, divided (any flavor!)
1pkg. (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened
16oz. BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted
Mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs with a wooden spoon until blended.
Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze for 1-2 hours (or overnight) on cookie sheet or in airtight container.
Dip in melted chocolate. I use 2 forks to let excess drip off. Place on waxed paper-covered rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs, sprinkles, or any other toppings.
Refrigerate for1 hour or until firm.
Store in freezer in airtight container.
One more Oreo recipe featuring Gingerbread Oreos (if you can get your hands on them)…
This one is for Gingerbread Oreo Truffle Bark from Inside the BruCrew Life.
This mixture of truffle and bark is sweet and delicious. One recommendation that I would have is making a finer crumble with your Oreos (like in the Oreo Balls).
This is what the recipe says to do, but I didn’t listen. Oh well!
I covered my bark with cinnamon and sprinkles and stored in in the freezer.
