Dessert Balls

by sunshine on May 9, 2008

I have been a huge fan of the Oreo Ball (or for you fancy people) Oreo Truffles for quite a few years now. If you have never had them, OH MY GOODNESS, you must make some today!! (luckily, I have the recipe right here : )
Just within the past few weeks, I discovered there are other yummy ‘dessert balls’ out there….if they can surpass the deliciousness of Oreo Balls, I’m not quite sure…but it’s worth a try : )
These little desserts do take a bit of time to make, but let me tell you right now…..they are SO worth the time!!

Oreo Balls











Printable Version: Oreo Balls

Ingredients
1 package of Oreo cookies (use cookie including the cream center)
1 8oz. package cream cheese (softened)
1 package white chocolate bark



Directions
1. Finely crush cookies in a food processor, transfer and stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together.
2. Roll the mixture into 1″ balls and place on wax paper/foil covered cookie sheet.
3. Melt chocolate as directed on the package and then dip balls into chocolate, tap off extra and set aside on wax paper/foil covered cookie sheet to dry. I usually place my in the fridge for a while (around an hour or two) to help the chocolate firm.
4. enjoy!

You can store them in an airtight container and they will keep for at least a week or so (even longer if you store them in the fridge)

For you people out there that love peanut butter, this one is for you!!

Nutter Butter Balls

Recipe Courtesy: Bakerella










Printable Version: Nutter Butter Balls

Ingredients
1 package Nutter Butter cookies (broken up…use cookie with the cream center)
1 8oz. package cream cheese (softened)
1 package chocolate bark

Directions
1. Finely crush cookies in a food processor or place them in a ziploc bag and crush into a fine consistency. (I highly recommend the food processor….doing it by hand takes FOREVER)
2. Combine with cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together.
3. Roll the mixture into 1″ balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet.
4. Melt chocolate as directed on the package and then dip balls into chocolate (I just use a tablespoon to dip them in the chocolate), tap off extra and set aside on wax paper covered cookie sheet to dry.
5. Refrigerate and enjoy!

And the last of the recipes for today. For those of you that love cupcakes….this beats them by a mile! : )

Red Velvet Cake Balls
Recipe Courtesy: Bakerella










Printable Version: Red Velvet Cake Balls

Ingredients
1 box red velvet cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
1 can cream cheese frosting
1 package chocolate bark (regular or white chocolate)
wax paper

Directions
1. After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
2. Mix thoroughly with 1 can cream cheese frosting. (It may be easier to use fingers to mix together, but be warned it will get messy.)
3. Roll mixture into quarter size balls and lay on cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50. You can get even more if you use a mini ice cream scooper, but I like to hand roll them.)
4. Chill for several hours. (You can speed this up by putting in the freezer.)
5. Melt chocolate in microwave or on stove top per directions on package.
6. Roll balls in chocolate and lay on wax paper until firm. (Use a spoon to dip and roll in chocolate and then tap off extra.)

You can tell that you can probably use any type of cookie or cake for these recipes. Also, to make them a little fancy, you can always use another color of chocolate/bark and drizzle it over the balls. I just put a little bit of melted chocolate in a zip loc bag, snip off one of the bottom corners and it drizzles a perfect stream of chocolate.

I hope you enjoy these “dessert ball
” recipes….Keith and I sure do!! (Of course, there’s not much
that we really don’t e
njoy as far as desserts go : )

I've made the oreo balls and the peanut butter balls, but I've never seen the red velvet. My husband's family is from Savannah…major red velvet territory! Merry Christmas!

I have looked at many recipes for the Oreo balls, and yours was the only one that said to include the cream center of the Oreo, I wasn't sure. Thank you!
