Oreo balls are delicious and incredibly easy. If you don’t mind the calories (which I didn’t look up, thank you), they’re the best holiday treat that will be your New Year’s resolution motivation. And they are made in four simple steps. So incredible easy; it’s one of those bites that tastes so good it really isn’t fair. But that’s what baking during the holidays is all about! And for a cookie swap, use dark chocolate almond bark, sprinkle crumbs on top and call it a lump of coal. Perfectly easy and no oven needed!
Almond oreo balls
1 package of oreos
1 package of cream cheese
1 package of almond bark (whatever flavor; I used white chocolate and dark chocolate)
With a food processor, finely chop up the entire package of oreos. Set aside 1/4 cup of oreo crumbs as garnish.
Blend in a room temperature package of cream cheese. This will take considerable time and patience blending in a large bowl, but it’s important that the mixture is well blended. Let chill for 30 minutes.
Form oreo mixture into 24 1-inch balls and place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Allow to set for one hour.
Melt almond bark in microwave (about 2 minutes, mixing almond bark every thirty seconds). With two forks, dip oreo balls in almond bark and cover completely. Set on parchment paper and let set in fridge completely (about 1 hour). Optional: when almond bark is freshly applied, sprinkle oreo crumbs on top as a garnish.
