These chocolate balls (sorry- there is no other way to describe them) were quite popular this year for the holidays. They are easy to make and fun to gu
ssy up! At the party I first tried them at I was tantalized by their soft, cake like texture surrounded by the hard chocolate shell. The person I was visiting with kept on insisting that it was oreo flavored. Seeing as I had already consumed several other desserts and a huge mug of hot chocolate, my taste buds could not detect that distinct oreo flavor. She was, however, correct.
Take 1 package of Oreos and combine in food processor with 1 regular cream cheese (I like to do this in two batches- keeps it more manage
Place mixture in fridge for at least one hour (the mixture should look like tar).
Melt chocolate bark in microwave.
Use cookie scoop to dish out oreo balls a
nd drop into chocolate.
I like to use a fork to remove the balls and place on wax paper.
They will be set in about a minute and ready to enjoy or refrigerate them for later.
If you desire, before they set up (this is better with two people) dust some of the balls with Cinnamon or crushed up candy canes.
The other yummy dessert is these chocolate chocolate chip cookies that I found the recipe for online.
The recipe is good but I make two modifications.
First, add a dash of cinnamon to the recipe. Second, I like to use a combo of regular chocolate chips and mini chocolate chips. The two have different temperatures at which they melt at thus creating different textures in the cookie. This makes a big batch so you can be ready to share...or not...!
