I started off just wanting to try making cookie balls using Nutter Butter cookies instead of Oreo’s.
Step 1: Ingredients
2/3 cup Nutella
2 oz cream cheese, softened
2 cups chocolate chips
(optional) White chocolate for decoration
Step 2: Preparation
Mix the cookie crumbs with â cup Nutella and 2 oz cream cheese. The mixture will still be crumbly, but should hold together when pressed -- if need be, add a little more Nutella or cream cheese.
Step 3: Shaping
Put the balls into the refrigerator for at least ½ hour to firm.
Step 4: Dipping
I use a homemade dipping tool that I formed from a piece of stainless steel wire (a bicycle spoke).
Roll each ball in the melted chocolate, and place on waxed paper.
The dipping tool makes it easier to scoop out the balls and shake off excess chocolate.
Step 5: Optional -- Decoration
An easy way to decorate the cookie balls is with white-chocolate piping.
Using a microwave, melt some white chocolate chips in a small plastic bag. Cut the corner off the bag and drizzle the melted chocolate in a thin stream over the top of the cookie balls.
Place the balls in the refrigerator till the chocolate hardens.
