I was sent the link to this recipe last year and it looked quite interesting. Decided to try these out. It’s from the USA so I have no idea on the pack size in the recipe but used a SA pack (16 x Oreo’s) and used 100gms of cream cheese (this felt like enough). You will then need enough chocolate to dip these into – about 200gms.
Whizz the cookies through a food processor until you get fine crumbs. Add the cream cheese and mix until it all comes together in a big ball. Roll the mixture out into small balls and place on wax paper on a baking tray and chill in the fridge or freezer. Melt the chocolate over a pot of boiling water and then allow it to cool for about 15 minutes.
I dipped the balls into the chocolate with a spoon and then placed them on a cooling rack over a baking tray, I found this easier than using a skewer. They firmed up in the fridge.
Well these are not quite as fantastic as expected. They stick to the palette a bit and I think a fun thing for kids to make. If I ever made these or anything like them again, I would definitely do a more ‘grown up’ version and add some liqueur. I think Cointreau, Baily’s or Kahlua would work well. They definitely needed a bit of a kick (for me).
