Chocolate Covered Oreo Balls

Giora Shimoni
My wife came back from Atlanta with this recipe for Oreo Balls, claiming that these cookies served at her nephew's bar mitzvah were extraordinary. My first reaction was that buying Oreos means not having to prepare treats, as Oreos are treats enough. But my second reaction, after my wife prepared the Oreo Balls herself, was that mixing cream cheese with Oreos and covering them in chocolate does, surprisingly, turn good into great.

These no-bake cookies, which can be prepared in advance by children, are so delicious that we've designed our Purim baskets around them. This Purim's Mishloach Manot will be black and white.

Ingredients:

  • 18 oz. (500 grams) package Oreos (30 cookies)
  • 8 oz. (225 grams) cream cheese, softened
  • 14 oz. (400 grams) white chocolate (or 2 cups white chocolate chips)
  • 1 Tbsp. butter or margarine

Preparation:

1. Put Oreos in a bag, and crush them until they are crumb-size.
2. Using an electric mixer, mix the crushed cookies with the cream cheese until the mixture is well blended.
3. Put the mixture in the freezer for at least on hour.
4. Line a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
5. Using a double boiler, melt the chocolate and butter.
6. Remove the mixture from the freezer and roll into one inch balls.
7. Using a toothpick, dip the balls into the melted chocolate. Then place on the cookie sheet to harden.
8. Keep the balls in an airtight container or sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator.

Yield: approximately 40 balls

Note: The balls can be prepared several weeks before an event and stored in the freezer.

I confess it was a parent of one of my preschoolers that made these, but oh my were they ever delicious! So delicious I nabbed the recipe. My assistant and I couldn't pin down what they were made of and we were surprised to find out it was oreo cookies. She used powdered sugar to coat hers rather than the white chocolate which I prefer anyway, so that's an easy option if you'd rather not get messy with white chocolate. She presented it in a little, white box with a window (purchased from Wal-mart) so you could see 4, little powdered balls in miniature cupcake cups. Under them was shredded paper. It was adorable and delicious.
