Happy Birthday, Mr. Oreo (plus a recipe)

By all accounts (and by "all accounts" I mean Yahoo, which, sadly, is where I get much of my news) today is the 100th birthday of the Oreo cookie. As someone who very much enjoys this little cookie- especially with a cold glass of milk - I thought I would pay homage by sharing with you a recipe.

The following was passed along by a friend who made a batch for me as a Christmas gift a couple years ago. Definitely NOT something you would want to eat everyday but OHHHH so good.


1 package Oreo cookies

1 package cream cheese

1 package white almond bark

1 tablespoon Crisco shortening

Crush oreo cookies (you can use a mini chopper)

Blend oreos with softened cream cheese until well mixed

Roll into balls

Place in the refrigerator to cool and set approx. 15-20 minutes

Melt almond bark and shortening

Dip rolled balls into chocolate, place on waxed paper and let set.

So simple and sooooo good.

P.S. Did you vote today? I did - even though it took a little longer due to an address conflict. One little mile cost me my place in line.

The only store bought cookie I eat is an Oreo. They are definitely my favorite! The balls sound delicious!

I make Oreo truffle balls all the time. My fam requests them for every function now.
My recipe doesn't call for shortening though...
