Intro: 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:
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.
