Winter OREO Cookies, divided
cream cheese, softened
white chocolate, melted
Assorted colored decorating gels
I have made these for years, but without the extra cookie underneath. You can really do a lot with mint oreos/dark chocolate, white chocolate/vanilla oreos, etc. All great.
As another reviewer said, cool dough is the best. I freeze the cookie balls for a few hours before I dip them in chocolate. It makes it a lot easier.
I tried this recipe and found it extremely difficult to work with the melted chocolate. I did freeze my dough balls and followed the advice of the recipe reviews. This task is really frustrating and I find it hard to believe it ever ends up looking like the picture displayed on the recipe.
YUMMY! Keep your dough cold and be careful not to overheat the white chocolate. Loved these!!!
Simple and adorable!
Yummy! I have made different variations of oreo balls for years. They always taste awesome! (dangerous on the scale though!!!) I apparently make my balls bigger because I tripled the recipe and I still only ended up with about only about 22. The store didn't have red oreos so I used the green mint ones instead. I also used vanilla almond bark. I also was a little generous on the cream cheese because I wanted to make sure they would stick together well. I did put the snowman faces on them, but they sure don't look as cute as the professional ones. However, I work with kids so they won't mind at all. I didn't have problems with making them solid white, but I did put them in the refrigerator for about 30 min before I warmed up my almond bark, and when I made them into balls I rolled them in my hands like play-dough to make sure they were put together well. These were fun to make and I will most likely do it again before the season is over.
These did not turn out like the picture. They looked like dirty little ghosts (due to cookie crumbs) I think we will do this for Halloween but not for Christmas.
Definitely not as easy as it sounds. I used both white almond bark and chocolate chips for a big batch. The almond bark melts into a smooth consistency way better than the chips. I refrigerated the balls before covering, however I recommend freezing them. The balls still crumbled and "dirtied" the white melt. I also used toothpicks to remove the balls after rolling them in the melt. This helped a little, as using fingers left bare spots.
If anyone has tips on how to make them as smooth as the pictures above, I'd love to here. They taste great, however I am disappointed with them visually.
I must have done something totally wrong because I followed the instructions and the mixture was sticking to my hands like crazy. The chocolate I melted were white chocolate chips (which didn't melt smoothly.) Also when rolling the balls in the chocolate the mixture started to run into the chocolate so, like someone else said, they looked like dirty ghosts. If I ever try to make these again I will chill the mixture so it doesn't stick to me and I will try a different kind of white chocolate.
