Every fourth of July, Candace, Tommy, and baby Tommy come for a visit to the lake, and we enjoy two or three days of having them here. We always have a great time just enjoying the sun, the lake, and the fireworks. What has become a very important part of this yearly tradition is Candace’s Oreo Balls. Everybody loves them!
Whenever I mention Candace and Tommy, Jackson always asks, “Are they making Oreo Balls?” These treats are simply incredibly delicious, and they only have three ingredients. As the Barefoot Contessa would say, “How easy is that?”
From start to finish, this recipe will take you about 30-40 minutes.
Allow for 1-2 hours for balls to freeze before dipping in almond bark.
1 package Oreo Cookies (do not use Double Stuf)
1 package Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese
In a gallon sized plastic bag, crush oreos well using a wine bottle or other heavy object.
Use a hand mixer to blend room temperature cream cheese with oreos until well blended.
Roll into quarter-sized balls and place on a baking sheet covered with wax paper.
Freeze for 1-2 hours.
In a double boiler, melt almond bark.
Dip balls in almond bark until covered.
Place on wax paper to cool.
Store in fridge.
