Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

One serving contains 130 calories, 2g of protein, and 7g of fat. For 28 cents per serving, this recipe covers 2% of your daily requirements of vitamins and minerals. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes roughly 2 hours. A mixture of chocolate chips, cream cheese, oreo cookies, and a handful of other ingredients are all it takes to make this recipe so flavorful. Try Reindeer and Snowman Oreo Cookie Balls + Oreo Stuffed Cookies, Gingerbread Men Oreo Balls, and Oreo Cookie Balls for similar recipes.

Oreo Cookies works really well with Cream Sherry, Madeira, and Prosecco. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port. The NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 19 dollars per bottle.

NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry

Very aromatic with notes of hazelnut, vanilla, and a touch of oak followed by sweet raisins and a touch of yeast. Clean lasting finish. Good now but will reward those allow it to age"". A favorite pre-prandial beverage. Consider it with nuts before dinner as an aperitif, or after dinner with dessert, especially chocolates and fruit-based desserts. Also wonderful on cold afternoons, served with biscotti to dip in ""Italian-style"". "

Instructions

  1. Start off by crushing up the Oreos. I tend to put the Oreos into a large baggie and hit them with the flat side of my meat tenderizer to accomplish this. You could also use a food processor, but I've had issues getting a consistent texture when I've tried that.
  2. Add the cream cheese to the crushed Oreos. Use your hands to mix the cream cheese into the Oreos.
  3. Then roll the mixture into 1 inch balls. At this point I would recommend freezing the ball for a few hours (or overnight). It makes it so much easier to cover them in chocolate!
  4. When you are ready to cover the balls, melt either the chocolate chips or chocolate almond bark in a small bowl.
  5. Then poke a toothpick into a ball and dip it in the chocolate. If you are worried about the balls looking perfect, you can poke the other end of the toothpick into an empty styrofoam egg carton while the chocolate hardens.
  6. That's it! Allow the chocolate to set up and then eat them!

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you really want to benefit from chocolate's health benefits, use cacao nibs instead of chocolate chips. They are much less processed than chocolate chips and have no added sugar!

  • If you're following a vegan diet (or avoiding dairy), make sure the brand of chocolate chips you buy is suitable for your diet! Always read the labels carefully. If you cannot find chocolate chips free from milk or other dairy in stores near you, look online.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • If you need to soften a block of cream cheese before using it, you can unwrap it and heat it in the microwave on high for 10-15 seconds at a time until it is soft enough.
