#313_Cookie Balls

If you like Cake Balls, you'll definitely love these
Cookie Balls.

Cake Balls
(recipe#86, click here) are made of cake and frosting
then dipped in chocolate.

Cookie Balls on the other hand are made of sandwich cookies such as
Oreos or any cream-filled cookies.

Oreo cookies are so expensive, but I found these generic kind sold at Smith's (Kroger) for only $1.99 for a 2-pound pack. They come in different flavors such as peanut butter, lemon, chocolate and vanilla.

Here's how to make the Cookie Balls....

For 1 lb. cookies you'll need 6 oz. of cream cheese,
softened at room temperature
(or use the whole brick of 8 oz)

Break the cookies up then crush them with a rolling pin or process in a food processor.
Mix the crumbs and cream cheese together

Form the mixture into 3/4 inch to 1 inch balls.
Freeze for at least 3 hours before dipping in Chocolate.
