Oreo Balls

Before dipping in chocolate

My friend Jody gave me this recipe. These are so GOOD!!! A perfect treat to make at Christmas time.

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 package of Oreos, crushed
23 oz bag of milk chocolate chips melted with 4 Tbsp. vegetable shortening or chocolate candy coating

Crush the Oreos (including the white filling) into fine crumbs with a food processor. Once they are all crushed then mix them with the cream cheese (do this in a mixer, not by hand). When it is well combined then you can start rolling the mixture into balls. Lay them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper (and don't let the balls touch each other). Once you have all the balls made, put them in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes.
While they are hardening, melt the milk chocolate in a bowl.
Set out another big piece of wax paper to set the balls on once they are coated.
If dipping in melted chocolate chips then place dipped balls in the fridge for a few minutes to harden. If using candy coating they should harden at room temp in a few minutes.

Makes approximately 2 1/2-3 dozen
