St. Patrick's Day Oreo Balls (Warning: Your thighs may never be the same!)

If you've never had oreo balls, you are so missing out.  My awesome friend Katie shared these with us over the holidays.  (She and her oreo balls have an open invitation in our home at any given time!)  Let me tell you, they are so decadent!  If you are even considering trying to make this into a lowfat recipe, forget it.  You are so missing the point!

For this recipe, you will need:

1 pack of oreos (Not 2, one makes plenty!)
1 pack of vanilla Candiquik
1 (8-oz) block of cream cheese (softened)
food coloring
cupcake wrappers (I ended up using big ones, not the little ones like in the picture, cuz of course I made my oreo balls like the size of tennis balls!)

This is so simple.  Just dump the entire bag of oreos and the entire block of cream cheese into the food processor and mix it all up until you have a smooth, glossy, doughy glob of yummy-ness.

Next, roll into balls and place onto waxed paper.  Pop into fridge for about an hour.  Melt the Candiquik, and using toothpicks, dip the balls into the melted candy.  (I colored half of it with green food coloring just for fun.) Add sprinkles if desired.  Let cool at room temp.  This ended up making about 40 for us, but it depends on how big you make them.

You may see this project at over at one of these great parties:

These look delicious...who doesn't love oreos!!! I haven't heard of Candiquick (spelling) it like the chocolate wafers that you use for molding chocolate?

Made these before and whoa! Yes....very scrumptious - everyone loves them!

I also added a little peppermint extract to the melted CANDIQUIK and dipped the oreo balls in - Super good if you love mint-chocolate as I do!

Thanks for the post :)

Whoa...where is my oreo ball? You are posting about food way too often and not sharing with me. You should just go ahead and bag an oreo ball and tie it as an ornament to that chocolate bourbon pie that you're making me for my b-day. Cool? Good.
