I came across the idea for this recipe years ago when trying to come up with an easy potluck dish to bring to work. Quick and easy, this 3 ingredient recipe is great for parties or to enjoy alone in a dark room by yourself…not that I’ve ever done anything of the sort. Easy enough that anyone can make them, from kids to boyfriends or husbands.
1/2 package of regular Oreos
1/2 package one third less fat cream cheese
Powdered sugar for coating
Both full fat and fat free cream cheese can be substituted for the third less fat if desired. I find the third less fat to be a great compromise between the two, but either would provide similar results.
Crush the Oreos until the crumbs are fine. It’s ok if there are some larger pieces, you will just have some extra crunch in the balls. I actually prefer it this way.
Mix in the cream cheese until it become like a dough.
I find it easiest to do this with my hands (or, well, the boyfriend’s hands). Unless you want Oreo under your fingernails, I recommend donning a pair of gloves for this part. Roll into 1-2 inch balls and place on a lined baking sheet or plate. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes.
Put about 1/2 cup of powdered sugar in a covered bowl. Add Oreo balls (in batches) to the bowl, cover and shake to coat.
Serve immediately or store in the fridge until ready to serve. Perfect with a tall glass of milk! Or I guess a short glass of milk as I have chosen to photograph.
You don’t get a whole lot easier than that! This recipe can easily be doubled, tripled or cut in half. I guarantee you won’t want to cut it in half though!
What do you think about this recipe? Were you able to keep from eating the whole plate in one sitting?
