Fun and festive treats for any party, baby shower or occasion. Have fun with different colors! Be careful to not let your family know you are making them. They disappear quickly.
1 package oreo cookies
One 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
In your blender, blend the oreo cookies until they are really fine. In a mixing bowl stir the cookies and cream cheese together until well blended. Roll into balls the size of a walnut and refrigerate on a cookie sheet for a couple of hours.
16 oz. of almond bark or white chocolate
1 tbsp. shortening
Food coloring (optional)
Melt the almond bark and shortening together in a double boiler until melted. Watch it so it melts but does not get too hot. Be careful to not let any water get on the chocolate. Add food coloring if desired. If you are making white balls and colored balls then coat the white balls first and then add food coloring for the remaining balls.
To coat the oreo balls in chocolate, carefully insert the pointed end of a skewer stick into a ball. Dip the ball into the melted chocolate to coat. Shake the ball gently as you rotate it to remove any excess chocolate. With the skewer still in the oreo ball stick the other end of the skewer into a cup full of uncooked rice until the balls have set and hardened. Serve them on the skewer or when the chocolate has hardened, gently twist and pull the stick out of the oreo ball. Serve and enjoy. My family loves to eat them frozen.
