Making Super Awesome Oreo Balls

It's Christmas time (technically past at the time of publish). Christmas to me means family, friends, and Super Awesome Oreo Balls.

What's a super Awesome Oreo ball? This is a super awesome Oreo ball:

Composed of Oreo and cream cheese wrapped in a layer of chocolate. Perhaps you just started drooling. This is normal.

Lucky for you making Super Awesome Oreo Balls is super easy.

Steps to reproduce

Clone the source
Clone the source
  1. Box of Oreo cookies
  2. 1 24oz bag of "Chocolate coating"
  3. 1 24oz bag of "Vanilla flavored coating"
  4. 1 box of cream cheese (10 oz?)
Compress objects
Compress objects
  1. Fill your blender to the top with Oreos. If you have Oreos left over, you can add them after you blend the first round down some.
  2. Use a "pulse" blend method by hitting blend for about 1 second; this allows the Oreos that are not blended (on the top) to sift down to the blades and get chopped. Otherwise, the Oreos on bottom would just get finer and finer while chunks remain on top.
Melting
Melting
Melt your chocolate covering in the microwave. Be careful not to overcook or melt the chocolate; it needs to be hot enough to be easily stirred with a spoon, but not so melted it's like water.
Merging
Merging
Soften the cream cheese in the microwave and mix in the blended Oreos. Stir with a spoon until they are well mixed
Rounding
Rounding
Grab a chunk of the mix and round it into a ball, approximately the size of a ping pong ball or smaller. The end product is pretty rich so anything bigger and you may struggle to eat the whole thing in one sitting.
Coating
Coating
  1. Drop the little Oreo ball into the melted chocolate.
  2. Using spoons, rotate the ball around so that it's entirely wrapped in chocolate.
  3. Scoop the newly covered ball out with the spoons, and place on a sheet of wax paper to harden.
Wait
Wait
  1. The hardening process takes 3-5 minutes
  2. Go pet your dogs or something.
Drizzle
Drizzle
  1. Melt the vanilla covering like you did the chocolate covering; again, not too hot.
  2. Using a knife or spoon, dip it into the melted vanilla, and "Drizzle" or streak the vanilla over the hardened Oreo balls like you're Jackson Pollock.
  3. Let the vanilla harden, and you're done.
Arrangement
Arrangement
Remove your now Super Awesome Oreo Balls and place on a nice, festive holiday plate of sorts. This is crucial to feeling better about yourself once you devour 3 in 5 minutes.
