Oreo Balls

One of our favorite junk foods is Oreo I know that most people will tell you don't use Double Stuf Oreos, but I am not one of them.  I won't make mine any other way.  When made this way they are moist and delicious, not dry like most of the ones I have tried.  I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.  Here's how I make them...

You are probably thinking that the pan looks awful...well it does, but I line it with wax paper and it still works just fine..You will need
Ingredients yields about 36 candies

1 package of Double Stuf Oreos
1 package of Cream Cheese
1 tbsp of butter (not margarine)
1/2 package of Vanilla Almond Bark (Chocolate if you prefer)
1/4 block of canning wax (optional)

Break cookies apart and take out the center with a butter knife.  Set cookies aside. 

Add butter & cream cheese to the bowl with the cookie centers and heat in microwave for about a minute.

Once heated, mix well.

Put cookies in a blender or food processor and crush.  Add these to the cream cheese mixture and mix well with a spoon.  Chill in the refridgerator for about an hour.

Once the are good and chilled, Form 1 inch balls.  Put back in the refrigerator while you are getting the Almond Bark ready for dipping.

Melt the canning wax in a double boiler.  Once melted add your almond bark and melt until smooth.  The wax will just add a little shine to the finished candy. 

Using toothpicks, dip each ball into the almond bark and set on wax paper.  Set in the refrigerator for a few minutes.  Use a little food coloring and color the leftover bark.  Take out your candies and remove the toothpicks.  Take a spoon and drizzle the colored candy on the balls.  Of course you can use a pastry bag and do it really pretty, I just didn't have one handy.

Cool and Enjoy!
