The man loves some Oreo’s. If there’s a new Oreo flavor out, you know he’s gotta buy it! When he was deployed, one of the only things ever asked for was…Oreo’s! When I seen this recipe, I decided it was simple enough that Cooper and I could make it at Christmas time. We did. He enjoyed himself of course. He always does. I waited to post about this because I had so many good stuff to tell you guys about.
I love anything Cooper makes for me, buys for me, does for me. He has the biggest, kindest, most giving heart. He never expects anything in return, but of course if he gets something then YAY! (His words!!)….there’s no harm in that though. For Christmas my sweet little boy handmade a cookbook for me with recipes that he wants to help make. How sweet is this?? We’re going to work on making stuff in his cookbook. I love it when he helps me. I feel like I’m doing something right with him. There are days I don’t think I am doing so great. He’s wild child. He wants to please me, but he has a mean streak a mile wide. He will definitely give the attitude and throw life in a state of annoyance. Overall he’s just a typical kid. I love him so much.
14.3 oz oreos
8 oz cream cheese, softened
16 oz semisweet chocolate
1 tablespoon shortening
Pulse cookies in a food processor until fine crumbs. Set aside half cup in a small bowl. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Add cream cheese to remaining crumbs in processor and pulse until well combined. Shape into walnut size balls. A small cookie scoop works well.
In a separate bowl mix chocolate and shortening in a glass bowl. Place in microwave for a few seconds at a time and stir until melted. I also did white chocolate for variety. Dip balls into chocolate mixture and turn with a fork to coat. Lift out with 2 forks. Let chocolate drip off. Transfer to a baking sheet and sprinkle with the reserved crumbs, or use the other chocolate to swirl over. Chill until firm, about 1 hour. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Beware that when you add food coloring to the white chocolate it begins to clump. Add a little more shortening and the fat will pull it back together.
