Very quick post during the workday. I made these last night for administrative professional’s day today (which no one knows about). They’re delicious, super rich and addictive and absolutely horrible for you. No baking involved- in fact, I used a plate, a plastic bag, and a meat tenderizer as my tools. Plus there’s only three ingredients.
First you throw your oreos in a plastic bag and crush them with a meat tenderizer/hammer/your hands. You could also use a food processor or blender but who wants to clean those? Unless you were ALSO making an oreo milkshake at the time…
Next, plop your cream cheese into the bag and smoosh it around with your hands. Again, this step could be done with a food processor, but smooshing is so much fun!
Then roll the resulting mixture into sticky balls, about an inch in diameter, and throw them in the freezer for a few minutes (I ate an artichoke in this time and it seemed about right).
Meanwhile, melt your chocolate. I used Baker’s semisweet because that’s what Kraft said to do, but anything will do: dark, white, whatever. It’s so easy to melt too: 30 seconds in the microwave, stir, 30 more seconds, stir. When it comes out after the second 30 seconds it’ll still be in those soft bricks, but just stir and the residual heat will melt it.
Then roll your frozen oreo balls around in the chocolate, and throw them on some parchment paper to set. I also sprinkled some of mine with coconut.
They’re ready to eat as soon as you want to eat them, though Kraft says to do it after an hour. THESE ARE SO DELICIOUS and so bad for you. There’s nothing good in them. And that’s why they’re so good.
“Recipe” adapted from the official Kraft one which looks like too much cream cheese:
Crush 28 Oreos in a plastic bag with a meat tenderizer/hammer/heavy bottle. Some people use hand mixers/food processors.
Smoosh in 4-6 oz cream cheese to your taste (I had some leftover from bagels so I’m not sure how much I used)
Form 1 inch balls and freeze for 10 minutes
Melt 6 oz semi-sweet or white chocolate, and roll each ball in the chocolate. Lay out on parchment paper.
Refrigerate for an hour or as long as you want to.
