Christmas Cookie Exchange- Oreo Balls

Oreo Balls
My submittal for Mel's 3rd Annual Christmas Cookie Exchange
Linking up here Larson Lingo

Oreo Balls
• 8 ounces softened cream cheese or whipped cream cheese
• 18 ounces package of Oreo cookies, crushed (crush the entire cookie- don't remove the filling!)
• 2 cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
• 1 tablespoon shortening

Mix cream cheese with electric mixer until fluffy. Add the crushed Oreos and beat on high until well mixed. Then roll Oreo cookie mix into one inch Oreo Balls. Chill for about 1 hour or until firm.
Next, melt the chocolate chips and shortening with a double boiler or in the microwave.

Dip the Oreo balls completely into the melted chocolate. I use two spoons to roll them around the scoop them out. Put on wax paper (do not skip the wax paper!! They will stick to the baking sheet…I know from experience). After the Oreo balls harden, keep them in the refrigerator.

For festive holiday treats melt colored white chocolate and drizzle over the tops. I put it in a Ziploc baggie and snip a small hole in the corner.
Makes about 3 or 4 dozen Oreo Balls, depending on the size

Enjoy!  YO HO!
