Oreo balls, Rabbit Cannons, Salty Balls, ....In the couple years that my family has been making these delicious treats, people tend to give them different names. These are easy lil treats to make. Somewhat time consuming, but easy....I believe these were originally introduced to me by Bernice Knudson. ("The goat lady")
1 Package Regular Oreos
1 Package of Cream Cheese-(Room temperature)
Almond bark, or Log House Candy chocolate coating.....whatever you can find
-Split Oreos about 6 or 7 at a time, and food process till they are crushed well. Dump in a big bowl.
-Repeat till whole package of oreos are crushed well and in bowl.
-Put package of cream cheese in with crushed oreos. With wooden spoon, mix two ingredients together blended well and even throughout.
-Line cookie sheet with waxed paper.
-A little at a time, pinch a little bit of the mixture out and roll in hands to make a ball. (like making cookies)
-Place ball on waxed paper, and repeat until all of the oreo mixture is made into tiny balls.
-Place cookie sheet of balls in fridge for a few hours, or the freezer for 1 hr.
-When balls have been chilled long enough, melt the chocolate/bark according to directions.
-Toss cold balls in chocolate to coat. Use a fork and knife to lift out, and let excess coating fall off.
-Transfer ball to cookie sheet with waxed paper.
-Repeat till all balls are coated and set on waxed paper.
-Store balls in fridge or freezer in airtight container.
Birthday Cake Balls-
1- 9x13 cake of your choice. I used Red Velvet Cake. Baked and COOLED COMPLETELY
1- regular sized tub of cream cheese frosting
1- package chocolate bark/log house candy coating
-Generally same directions as the Oreo Balls.
-Piece by piece, food process the cake till it is all crumbled.
-Mix in container of frosting
-Use hands to blend and mix till well blended.
-Roll in balls
-Dip in the chocolate
These too are great little treats.....I think our good ole Oreo balls we have always made may still be the best. But these are very close.
