Oreo Balls

These are dangerous, very very dangerous.  You can’t eat just one, it’s impossible.  Be sure to add the shortening to the chocolate to make dipping easier.

Ingredients:

2 packages regular oreo cookies
2 packages of cream cheese, softened
2 packages semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
Shortening

Place cookies in a food processor with blade attachment and process until fine crumbs.  In a large bowl add cookie crumbs and cream cheese.  Chill for two hours.  In a double boiler, over medium heat, add one package of chocolate chips and 2 Tablespoons of shortening.  Melt completely and remove from heat.  Roll a teaspoon of the oreo mixture into a ball and using two spoons, dip in completely in the chocolate.  Drop onto a cookie sheet covered with wax paper and chill.  When you run out of dipping chocolate repeat the melting stage with the other package of chocolate chips and shortening.
