“Mom..your balls are too big!”

December 13, 2011


Erin Schrader

That was just one of the commonly heard terms this past Saturday afternoon.
It was my mom, sister, and I’s annual “Christmas baking day”
Except we didn’t bake at all.
We made balls instead.
Lots and lots of balls.
Oreo Balls.
Pretty sure we made somewhere in the range of 400-500 but who’s counting?
Not only are these like the easiest things known to mankind to make.
They are also beyond delicious.
Amazeballs would be a better term in fact.
Oh, and they provide lots and lots of humor when making them.
“Oh..these balls are so good”
“Your balls are small”
“I love balls”
Think for a minute of this Saturday Night Live skit…
Yeah, it was a little somethin’ like that.
Anyhow-you want the recipe?
You got it.
{This is for roughly 42 balls…}
-16 oz package of oreos
-8 oz cream cheese, softened
{in our case we used a LOT of cream cheese…}

-16 oz Bakers semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted
{and again..we used a LOT of chocolate}

-Sprinkles and whatever toppings tickle your fancy

-Crush up your oreos

-Stir in your cream cheese

-Roll into 1 inch balls
{unless your mom and you make them 3 inches…Good work dad 😉 Wow. Yes, I just said that}

-Let the balls cool for 10 minutes or so.

If you don’t have room in your refrigerator, stick em’ in the garage like so:

-Melt your chocolate in the microwave {check it every 45 seconds or so and stir until its completely melted}
Dip your balls in the chocolate making sure you get them nice and coated

-Sprinkle your cute little toppings on

-Refrigerate until firm. Maybe like an hour or so?

-Package em’ up all pretty

…And enjoy.
