I first tasted these at my Dad's house. Kathy blessed me with one of these choice morsels on one of my last visits. They were one of the most scrumpscious treats I have ever had. My sister Katheryn (Moms serving Christ) had made them. I kept meaning to ask Katheryn for the recipe, but never did. I googled the recipe and wow was there a huge response. It is not a difficult recipe to find, nor is it difficult to make. You're going to love these. They make a wonderful Valentines Day treat.
1 16 ounce Package Oreo Cookies
I used Newman's Own, because he doesn't use hydrogenated oil
8 ounces cream cheese
softened to room temperature
16 ounces of semi sweet chocolate chips
or you can use milk chocolate, white, or mint flavored for a contrasting mixture
Place cream cheese in a bowl. Crush Oreos in food processor. Add to cream cheese and mix thoroughly. Roll into walnut sized balls and place on a waxed paper covered cookie sheet. Place in refrigerator. Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips in a double boiler ( I saw Paula Dean using a glass Pyrex bowl over a pan of heating water on the stove top..... I liked that). When balls are cooled and chocolate is melted, dip chocolate ballls into chocolate extended from a tooth pick, skewer or fork. Place on wax paper to dry. If desired sprinkle with additional cookie crumbs, or purchased sprinkles or drizzle with contrasting colored chocolate. Place each in a cupcake paper to give it a nice touch.
Try to keep them out of sight until ready to serve... they may not last.
