These little delicious desserts are simple and fun to make! I love adding just a few drops of peppermint essential oil to the dough to give it a refreshing and bright flavor! Try making them for your next gathering! People will go crazy over them!
1 package reduced fat Oreo cookies
1 8ounce package cream cheese, room temperature
3-4 drops peppermint essential oil
Good dipping chocolate such as Guitard (I like to use a mix of dark and milk chocolates).
Prepare a jelly roll pan lined with parchment paper. In a food processor fitted with the blade, blend all the Oreos’ until it turns into crumbs. In a separate bowl add the Oreo mixture and cream cheese. Blend with beaters until just combined. Add the essential oil if using. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place on the parchment lined pan. Freeze for 6-12 hours until the balls are firm.
Melt the chocolate over a double broiler and add 1 tablespoon organic canola oil to help the chocolate melt more evenly.
Use a toothpick to dip the cold Oreo ball into the chocolate.
Place on newly lined parchment and allow the chocolate to set. Remove the toothpick with the help of another and swirl the top to finish.
