CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE OREO BALLS
 

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 Cup cream cheese {cut up and softened}
  • 20 Oreo cookies finely chopped {I used a pastry blender to grind mine up}
  • 2 1/4 Cups milk chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp shortening
  • chocolate sprinkles

To Make

  • Melt the semisweet chocolate chips in the microwave. {Set microwave to medium power and heat the chocolate chips for 1 minute in a microwave safe bowl, stir and heat again in 30 second intervals until melted.}
  • Stir in the cream cheese until well combined.  Add the chopped cookies.
  • Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.  Form the cookie mixture into small balls and place on the sheet.  Over and freeze for approximately 15-30 minutes until firm.
  • Combine the milk chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave safe bowl and microwave as above until melted.
  • Dip the balls into the chocolate mixture.  Place the dipped balls on the wax paper tray and sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles.
  • Freeze approximately 30 minutes until firm.

Makes approximately 2 dozen balls.

As much as I love eating treats, I am not really much of a baker.  The most fun that I have with all of my Christmas baking is packaging it up for little gifts!

Cute packaging for Christmas cookies.
I re-cycled a plastic container that some buns had come in and dressed it up for Christmas!!  I added some double sided scrapbook paper to the lid {decorate the front and the back as you will see the back when you open it up} and lined the bottom of the container with paper as well.  I glittered up a paper clip to attach the tag and tied it all together with baker’s twine.

When you are serving the chocolate balls, they fit nicely on mini cupcake liners too.

Chocolate Oreo Cheesecake Balls.  These look SO good!
