The Sweetest Dessert at the Table

by Megan Kane

I don’t remember when my mom started making this dessert, or where she found the recipe, but it has quickly morphed into one of my all-time favorite desserts. Oreo Balls are a quick and easy dessert to make, and are good for any occasion – so much so that my friends naturally expect I’ll be equipped with Oreo Balls wherever I go. So, without further ado, here is the recipe for the treat that will put the best dessert debate to rest:

Ingredients

  • One pack of regular Oreos
  • 8 oz of Philadelphia’s Original Cream Cheese
  • 4 bars of baker’s semi-sweet chocolate

Instructions

  1. Place a pack of Oreos in a gallon Ziploc bag, and crush them with a rolling pin 
  2. Place the crushed Oreos in a food processor and pulse until they’re crumbs, ensuring there are no large pieces 
  3. Place the Oreo crumbs in a mixing bowl and add the block of cream cheese, mixing them together with your hands until you can no longer see the white from the cream cheese
  4. Roll small chunks of the mixture to create 1-inch balls, then place the balls on a tray with parchment paper
  5. Place the tray in the freezer for 20 minutes
  6. Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring in between
  7. Once the chocolate is melted entirely, attach the balls to a stick and dip them in the chocolate, ensuring the ball is fully covered in melted chocolate
  8. Repeat this process until all the Oreo balls have been covered in chocolate
  9. Freeze the balls for another 20 minutes
  10. Keep refrigerated beyond this point
