Oreo Balls, They Taste Great and They Sound a Little Naughty

I had to attend another baby shower today, the 3rd so far this year (with 4 more to go), but this time I really didn't mind because one of our special ed. teachers had made her infamous Oreo Balls. They are so good that I'd be willing to bet the folks who wrote the Lays Potato Chip commercial (Bet you can't eat just one) had traveled forward in time and sampled them. She was also kind enough to share her recipe, which follows:

3 bags of Oreos (2 reg. & 1 double stuffed)
4 boxes of cream cheese
Chocolate almond bark (for dipping)
Vanilla almond bark (for drizzling)

Crush the Oreos in a Ziploc bag and pour into a large bowl. Mix the cream cheese in with the crushed Oreos. The mixture will still have a crumbly texture. Put the mixture in the refrigerator and let it set overnight. Take the mixture out and form into balls. Dip the balls into the melted chocolate almond bark and place on wax paper. After the chocolate hardens, drizzle the melted vanilla almond bark over the Oreo balls. Store the Oreo balls in the refrigerator.

Go ahead, try it. You WON'T be able to eat just one.

Is this from the same folks that "invented", "created" "concocted", Frito Pie ? It does sound good though. (and I love chili, cheese and fritos....!)

So, how many times did you hear the phrase, "I just LOVE your balls!"

Mmmmmmm...sounds good.

Now I don't want to hear you complain anymore about going to "those" showers. You see, there is something good about them.

mister teacher, you are sooooooo bad!

Mr. Teacher,

I made them for some friends last year, who thereafter referred to them as "Mike's Balls"

At least we now know part of the answer to the question of where mini-oreos come from. Somehow, I'd always assumed asexual reproduction in oreos. My bad. :)

Mike, I just wanted to tell you that I made your recipe (with one minor variation - chocolate double stuffs - because, well I wasn't really paying attention at the store) and I must say it seems people want to carry me off somewhere on their shoulders! I've never had so many positive comments about my cooking. Thanks for making me the King of Deserts in San Antonio.

Merry Christmas and keep up the great blog.
