I'm actually really excited about trying this recipe again with just a slight variation, but I'll get to that later. Now, here's the recipe:
What You Need
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 pkg. (16.6 oz.) OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 4-1/4 cups), divided
Mix cream cheese and 3 cups cookie crumbs until well blended. **(I popped the mixture into the fridge for a bit just to harden it up so it would be easier to ball up.)
Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls. (I also popped the balls in the freezer for a bit to make them easier to dip.)
Dip in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.(I didn't save any crumbs for this... )
Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
|I left some un-dipped, dipped some & then rolled some in peanut pieces.|
So, even though I made a couple variations I'm looking forward to trying more. I want to try mint oreos dipped in white chocolate, or vanilla oreos with semi-sweet chocolate.
Also, a tip I gathered from the comments on the Kraft website was to use forks to dip the balls in the chocolate. This helped the extra chocolate run off and made it a lot, A LOT, less messy!
Bottom line: quick recipe, easy recipe, yummy recipe. That's good enough for me!
