Ever have one of those days where you just want to have fun in the kitchen with no recipe and determined to have awesome results? Well these oreo balls is one of those! My friend and I were at the store one day with our kids and we decided while there, to pick up a few things to make our own little concoction of goodness. The plan was, the kids will play, we will get inventive (two heads are better then one after all..) and with any luck...considering they would taste good, chow down on some......(Behind the counter of course! We didn't need our already hyper kids sampling the sugar)
In addition to these curing whatever craving for sugar you might have, they are fairly easy, and will last a while in your freezer.
Just from talking about these, I might need to make some again soon ;)
1 pkg Golden Oreos
about 1/2 bag of Rolo's
8oz cream cheese (softened)
2 bags Reese's Peanut Butter Chips
2 Tbsp butter
about 1/4-1/2 C milk (as needed)
food processor, process cookies until smooth crumbs, put into large
bowl. Using your hands, mix the cream cheese into the crumbs.
Rolo into fourths, mix into the crumb mixture. Roll into about 1-1/2
tbsp balls, place on a cookie sheet. Freeze about 30 min and until ready
In a saucepan of simmering water, place pb chips into a metal
bowl to make a double boiler. Over medium heat stir pb chips. While
melting, add in the butter and the milk a little at a time (pb chips are
really thick, you want a thinner consistency so you can dip the balls
into them). Once chips are smooth and easy to work with, put bowl on the
counter, take the balls out of freezer.
Using a skewer to pick the
ball up, dip into pb mixture and then set on top of a wax
paper/parchment paper lined tray or cookie sheet. Carefully remove skewer; if desired, decorate with sprinkles. Continue until all the
balls are coated. You may need to reheat the pb and add another splash
of milk in the middle of coating the balls.
