Peanut Butter / Chocolate Cookie Balls





Introduction: Peanut Butter / Chocolate Cookie Balls

This is a recipe that I altered. The original recipe was called Cookie Balls and
was given to me my a friend ( I do not know where she got it).
I like Peanut Butter and Chocolate better than Chocolate and Peanut Butter.
So I altered the recipe. You can put more or less Peanut Butter in it to suit your taste.
Makes about 80 Balls.

Step 1: Ingredients:

1lb 1oz Oreo Cookies (1 bag)
or about 1 lb chocolate sandwich cookies

1/4 cup Peanut Butter
6oz Cream cheese

Package of Almond Bark (vanilla)
Package of Chocolate Candy Coating (usually found next to the Almond Bark

Other accessories useful:
Food Processor
Pastry bag or ziploc bag
Dipping fork - found on cake decorating section on craft stores
or stores like Walmart. (that's where I got mine)

Step 2: Mixing Ingredients

Add as many cookies to the food processor as it can hold and process, then
add more cookies and process until all are finely ground.
Then add 1/4 cup of peanut butter to the food processor mix, Next
add the 6 ounces of cream cheese and process until completely mixed.
using your clean hands or a plastic baggie on your and and press into pan.

Step 3: Making the Balls

Refrigerate for about 1 hour. After time is up, take out and cut into
3/4 inch squares. Take each square and press into a ball.
DO NOT ROLL as they will crumble if you roll.
Then refrigerate again for about 1 hour.

If you want you can leave them as squares
or make both ball and squares.

Step 4: Dipping (or As I Call It Making a Mess)

Follow instructions on package most say to microwave for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes stir well.
If any lump left microwave for 15 second more and stir again. Repeat to smooth.

Take a few balls and drop into almond bark and take a spoon and cover ball with
Almond Bark then use dipping fork or regular fork and take out of bark and let drip.
Place on non-stick aluminum foil. DO NOT USE rack, you can see from the picture
what will happen ( not a pretty sight).

Melt chocolate candy coating the same as the almond bark. Take pastry bag or ziploc bag
and cut a tiny tiny piece off the corner and pour in the coating.
Twist bag and squeeze and apply 2 stripes across balls. Let dry about 15 minutes.

Step 5: Finishing Touch

After applying the two stripes and drying 15 minutes. Put into your candy cup and enjoy.
I hope you like my first instructable.

    These look yummy but do I have to add the pb?? I'm not a big peanut butter fan so I was just wondering

    You can use skewers also to dip them in the chocolate as long as they are cold enough.

    Have you tried this recipe using Nutter Butters? I bet that would be peanutastic!

    instead of putting in oreo's, make a cookie mix in a cake pan then crumble it up (don't process it) then add in the peanut butter and cream cheese at the same time and mix with your hands until you can form a ball. it should help out the size of the ball and taste

    this is very interesting recipe its similar to my cake balls!


    They look beautiful. Great for giving (and snacking). Nice.

    This recipe has been a huge hit for me at family parties and Holiday get-togethers!  I have family asking me for more every time!

    I also mix together food coloring to white almond bark to make creative pastel colors for Easter, Christmas, and Valentine's Day.

    Thanks for the GREAT idea!
