Valentine Oreo Balls



Yesterday, I'm in Walmart getting some deli meat with my Starbucks coffee sitting in my basket, shopping cart....whatever y'all wanna call it. I pick the cup up and.... SMOOSH.....it completely caves in sending hot coffee all over the front of my white shirt.

I quickly grab my sliced turkey and head to the women's clothing department. They have such great selections (not), I wanted to buy a shirt and go change in the bathroom. So I grab a Minnie Mouse shirt and head for the check out line. Wouldn't ya know the lines were very long. Last minute Valentine's day shoppers.

I know, I'll check out in the jewelry department. So I walk up and ask if I can make my purchase here. The lady says....sure, I'll be a minute I have to finish emptying this box....ummm seriously. So I wait for what seems like an eternity and finally she comes to ring me up.

Wait....it get's better.

I mention spilling coffee all over me and she asked if it was hot......Ummmm it's coffee YES IT'S HOT. I nicely tell her yes and no joke, she asked me if it hurt......

Ummmm let me see......hot coffee.....spilled down my entire shirt.....Yes it hurt....DUH.

So my quick Walmart run was not so quick and a huge disaster.

I made up for it later by drowning myself in Oreo balls. Have you ever had an Oreo ball???? They really are amazing......and a quick, non-disastrous desert.


Valentine Oreo Balls

To make these you will need the following:

1 pkg double stuffed Oreos (crushed in your food processor)
1 8oz pkg of cream cheese, room temp
1 pkg of Almond Bark
pink and silver sprinkles


 Place crushed oreos and cream cheese in a mixing bowl or in your stand mixer. My Kitchen Aid bowl was dirty and I was too lazy to wash it.....hey, it happens.


 Mix until well combined.


 Give these beaters full of gooey goodness to your cute child or eat yourself. If this is for yourself, turn off mixer first.


 Take 1 Tbsp and roll into a ball with your hands. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. 
Place them in the fridge for an hour. If you're in a hurry you can place in the freezer for about ten minutes. When you are ready to take them out, melt the almond bark in a microwave safe bowl. I do this 30 seconds at a time, mix, then reheat until completely melted.


 Take Oreo balls out of the fridge/freezer and place one into the melted bark. Pick up with a fork and tap to shake off excess.


Place in a bowl of sprinkles. Don't worry about covering the top that is showing....that will be the bottom of your Oreo ball. You need to cover with the sprinkles quickly because the almond bark hardens fast with the Oreo ball being cold. Place on parchment paper. Keep in the fridge until serving.


You can add tiny heart sprinkles as an alternative. These little heart sprinkles were sent to me in an order from Karen's Cookies.



So gooey and delicious.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week!

  2. You can use mascarpone instead of cream cheese as well, great if you have non-cream-cheese-lovers in your life :)
