Brittany’s Oreo Cookie Balls
This week’s recipe comes from Brittany from Ferny Hills in Brisbane. She said these Oreo Cookie Balls are a favourite among her family who come from New York City and that they are an easy, no-bake recipe that she thought I would love to try.
And she was right! If the Oreo Cookie factor didn’t have me from the get-go – the addition of cream cheese and then the drizzling of chocolate at the end had me won over completely. And the best bit? It’s a mix and roll and refrigerate kind of a recipe. Which makes it super easy. And they make perfect little additions to any lunch box – because we’ve all got those back to school feels this week. And we all need a pick-me-up to get us to the end of the week…
1 pack of original Oreos (133g)
75g softened cream cheese
Pinch of Salt
Melted chocolate for decoration
1. Crush the Oreo cookies in a food processor until they resemble fine breadcrumbs. Reserve one tablespoon for decoration.
2. Add the rest of the cookie crumbs and the salt into the softened cream cheese. Mix well.
3. Roll the mixture into balls and place on a baking tray. Refrigerate until firm (or pop them in the freezer for 10 minutes if you are impatient like my brother who rolled all the balls for me).
4. Drizzle melted chocolate over the Oreo balls and then sprinkle with the leftover cookie crumbs. I used two types of chocolate because I think it looks pretty, but you can use whatever you like.
Rosie’s Tip of the Day:
Why not substitute the original Oreo cookies for a flavoured version instead? I’m going to try the strawberry ones next time!
