Feeding my addiction

Yes, I, too, have an addiction. Doesn't everyone?

The object of my craving, my must-have-or-I'll-scream lust is Oreos. Yes, the cookie. I love 'em.

Trolling for recipes to mentally feed the craving at 4 am a few days ago, I found the following. I tweaked it a bit, gave it a true Oreo-lover's stamp of approval and am sharing it with you now. One word of warning, though. These balls may bring on an addiction in your life, too. They're that good. Enjoy!

Oreo Balls

1 package OREO cookies
8 oz. package of softened cream cheese
melted chocolate--chips, semi-sweet, dark, white--your choice. Hey, it's your addiction. :)

Crush the cookies into fine crumbs. Add cheese and mix.

Roll mixture into balls. Chill balls on baking sheet for 30 minutes.

Dip balls in melted chocolate. Chill until firm.

Store any leftover balls in fridge. *

* I just put that in for the purposes of recipe maintenance, not because I actually believe you'll have leftover balls. And if you do? Have leftover balls? Well, then maybe you should rethink your personal addiction, because it'll mean that Oreos definitely aren't your top lust item.

Kit Kats, anyone? Or Goobers--now there's an addiction-worthy item...

Yummo. Do you have Kit Kats over there? I've been snacking on the double choc ones just this week. Now I'm paying for it! Will try your addiction-guaranteed balls this weekend! Aussie J
