Deck the halls with Balls of Oreos...fa la la la la la la!

     Now, according to my dear friend, Margaret, the Oreo cookie is the epitome of culinary confections.  Not the Double Stuff, nor the Oreo Cakesters, the Golden Oreos, or even the Oreo Peanut Butter Cremes.  She says, "you cannot improve on perfection."

     Hard to argue with Margaret.

     I was given this recipe from one of my loyal followers, and it may just give Nabisco something to think about, since I'm sure their seventeen varieties are not enough.  Three ingredients - no cooking - and man, oh, man are they good!  Or, as my kids said, "these are the frickin' bomb!".  They speak so eloquently...

Oreo Cookie Balls

1 package Oreo Cookies
8 oz.  cream cheese, removed from refrigerator 30 minutes
4 oz. white chocolate bark

Process Oreos in food processor until blended fine.  Add the cream cheese to the Oreo crumbs and process until dough forms.  It will look something like this:

Scoop by teaspoon and roll into balls.  Place on wax paper and chill for 15 minutes.  Melt the white chocolate bark according to the package directions.  Dip the chilled Oreo balls in the chocolate, covering completely, but allowing the excess to drip off.   While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle with decorative sugars.  The chocolate sets up fast, so do a few at a time, sprinkle, repeat.   

Makes 30-36, depending on the size of your balls.  Babe preferred his without the chocolate coating, that cute health nut.    

I think there are ready to eat in about 10 minutes.  My kids finished them before it hit the 10 minute mark, so I'm guessing here.

Eat happy!
