I know that I'm totally not original in this, and you've probably already seen this all over blogland or Pinterest. But just in case......if you haven't tried these yet, you have nooooo idea what an amazing thing you are missing!
These couldn't be easier! And to those who say they aren't bakers......guess what? No baking required!
The original recipe for these comes from Kraft. I use my food processor to make this super fast, but if you want to do this by hand, it'll just take a little more muscle, and you won't get quite as smooth of a center. I like the smooth center better than having chunks of cookie.....but it's up to you! You're only going to need a few ingredients:
1 (16.6 oz.) package of Oreos
1 (8 oz.) block of cream cheese, softened
candy melts (I use white candy melts)
Place all of the Oreos into the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the cookies have all been finely ground. Add the cream cheese to the food processor and continue to pulse until well blended with the cookies.
Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out a small ball of the Oreo mixture and roll in your hands until it forms a ball. Place and a sheet pan lined with wax paper or parchment paper. Continue until all of the Oreo mixture has been rolled into balls. Place in refrigerator until firm.
Melt candy melts in the microwave, and one by one, dip the Oreo balls into the candy melts. Scoop out the ball using a fork and shake off the excess before sliding back onto the sheet pan. Immediately top with sprinkles before the candy melts start to harden. Continue until all balls have been covered.
Store in refrigerator until ready to serve. I like to serve them in mini cupcake liners......just makes a nicer presentation than throwing them on a plate.
