So easy, these are not really even a recipe, more of a method. You can mix and match Oreo flavors with your favorite spices and extracts. Done in 20 minutes, start to finish!
- 1 package of regular Oreos
- 1 brick of cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 t. mint extract
- 12 oz. bag of chocolate chips
- a few candy canes for garnish
Pulse the cookies in the food processor until they are coarse crumbs. Mix in the cream cheese and extract until you see no more white streaks and a dough forms. It may be a bit sticky, that’s ok. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and set on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze for about ten minutes while you melt the chocolate and smash the candy canes. Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second increments, stirring in between to prevent scorching. A fondue pot or chafing dish is a great way to keep the chocolate melty while you are working, but if you don’t have one, that’s ok- you just might have to stick it back in the microwave if the chocolate starts to thicken up on you. Dip each Oreo ball in melted chocolate to coat, and sprinkle with some crushed candy canes. Set them back on the parchment-lined baking sheet to set up. Store these in the fridge for up to a week. They also freeze well. These taste best at room temperature.
