Who loves to celebrate the big game?! Who doesn’t even know what’s going on in the game but LOVES to get together with friends and eat all the fun game day foods?! That’s the group that I belong with. I am a foodie through and through. Any opportunity to get together with others and share food! And what better food to share than OREOs? Not to mention OREOs that are crushed up, mixed with cream cheese and decorated to look like footballs! These OREO Cookie Balls are a sure win!
These little treats are super cute. And super easy! All the ingredients can be found at Walmart. Here’s a little picture of the lovely OREO display that Walmart offers. So many options to choose from! I went with a Peanut Butter OREO. But really, you could use any OREO flavor that you want. They have so many to choose from, and I always love trying out their seasonal flavors that they offer.
Give the OREOs a little time in the food processor to get them all crumbled up. If you don’t have a food processor you could alleviate some stress by going at them in a sealed plastic bag and a rolling pin. Either way, we need them in nice, fine crumbs. Mix that up with some room temperature cream cheese. This will give you a nice texture, they will be easy to shape and mold into whatever shape you want!
I took about a tablespoon of the cookie mixture and shaped them into little footballs. Set them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and place them in the freezer to set for about 10 minutes. Follow the directions on the chocolate to melt it, and just dip the OREO cookie balls into the chocolate. I find the best way to do this is with a fork. Then tap it against the side of the bowl to remove any excess. Place the chocolate covered OREO cookie balls back onto the wax sheet to cool and set.
Once I had all the #OREOcookieballs dipped into the chocolate, I melted the white chocolate, again just follow the directions on the box.
I was so happy with how cute these turned out. And they were apparently a huge win because they didn’t last long around here! Can’t wait to make another batch when it comes time for the big game!
