This recipe tastes great but from my experience, these don't turn out well with a hand mixer. The easiest (and least messy!) way is to simply toss the cookies in a blender and chop... once they're a crumb-like consistency, then add the cream cheese and use the hand mixer in a large bowl so they're smooth. This way, they roll into a nice round ball without the big cookie chunks the hand mixer cannot crush. Enjoy! (:
Absolutely a 5-star winner and so easy! I took another reviewer's advice and put the Oreos into the blender on "chop" until they were the crumb consistency I wanted. I then used my KitchenAid mixer to blend the crumbs and cream cheese, used a cookie/melon baller to make perfect round balls, and set them all in the freezer til solid. I had no problem dipping them into the melted almond bark and still keeping them in perfect form. It didn't take long to thaw out and everyone loved them, even with using Reduced Fat Oreos and 1/3 reduced fat cream cheese.
These are sooo easy and yummy!! I've made these for many occasions. The latest one being Halloween where I dipped them into white chocolate and used Life Saver gummies as irises, upside chocolate chips as pupils and red food coloring for "veins". Make for a scary treat that everyone LOVES! (see the picture I posted.) I also recommend taking out the cream centers first and mixing with the cream cheese then adding the finely crushed cookies. Seems to make for a smoother ball to dip.
This recipe was very helpful, however I changed a few things. I prefer using chocolate chips and white chocolate chips instead of the almond bark. It just tastes more like real chocolate that way. Also, contrary to the other reviews I used a hand mixer to finish blending it and it worked fabulously! There were no chunks of cookies at all. I did crush the cookies very well by hand first but the mixer did a good job of finishing turning the cookies into crumbs and mixing in the cream cheese. My last change was that instead of using toothpicks and dipping my balls I use a spoon and pour the chocolate over them, rounding it around the bottom as I went along because I don't like having little holes at the top of my treats.
