Okay, so ever since I discovered oreo balls, aka "white trash truffles" here, I've been in love with them.  So few ingredients, so much praise!  When I bring them to work I am loved and hated.  ("OMG, why did you bring these in?  I've eaten TOO MANY, they're SO GOOD!")

Anyway, I was thinking about making them as little holiday gifts, as I'm about broke, like everyone else.  But everyone has already had them, obviously, so I wanted to do something a little different.

Then I thought, Hey!  There are vanilla sandwich cookies out there too!  Why not use them as a base and flavor them?

So I did!

I'm sure I'm not the first person to think of it, but I'd never seen it anywhere, so I was pleased with the idea.

I present to you my Raspberry White Chocolate Not-Really-Oreo Balls!




I'm also doing Orange Dark Chocolate and Almond Milk Chocolate ones, along with the standard ones.  Also, I found some Target brand mint creme filled ones, which make for a VERY simple variation on the original.  No pics of all the rest of these yet though.



And just so we're all on the same page (and because I had a request! Grin) here is the original basic recipe:

1 pack (3 rows) chocolate sandwich cookies like Oreos
1 standard block of cream cheese
1 package coating chocolate of your choice (chips or CandiQuik, whatever you like)

Run the cookies through a food processor until they're a powder and you can't see the creme anymore.  Add your block of cream cheese and mix until it's a sticky dough.  Refrigerate to firm.  Roll into balls 1" wide, CHILL AGAIN.  Actually, I freeze mine.  When they're chilled/frozen, heat your coating chocolate and coat those babies.  They're then ready to eat.  PLEASE BE CAREFUL.  More than one of these is a) addicting and b) will make you wish you'd never been born.  They are SO RICH.

To make the flavored/colored fillings I simply substituted vanilla sandwich cookies for the chocolate, and then when I added the cream cheese, also add the flavor and coloring of your choice.  Voila!

I have no idea what oreo balls are but they look delicious...not necessarily nutritious though. My brain says don't look up how to make them, but my stomach seems to be winning.  Grin

mmmmmm they look so yummy. I've been drooling over all the oreo truffles for probably over a year now but I've never made them.

I'm looking for ideas for my friends this year and especially my brother who's in the military he'll either be in Japan or in the middle of the ocean for Xmas so I need to start baking and sending now.

I think these would keep if I used one of those vaccum seal kits.

Oh, these look soooo good.  I like the white frosting/chocolate dip that you used.  Nice touch.

Has anyone tried making these with something other than cream cheese? I don't like cream cheese desserts but these sound like they'd be sooo yummy without it!
