Ingredients
  • 1 pack OREO® Cookies
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1 pack White Chocolate Morsels
  • 3-4 Drops Yellow Food Coloring
  • 3-4 Drops Red Food Coloring
  • 1 Tube Black Icing
  • 1 sheet Wax Paper
Instructions
  1. In small batches, crush all OREO Cookies in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, you can easily put the OREO Cookies into a large plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crush the OREO Cookies inside.

  2. Mix all OREO Cookies, and Cream Cheese together until a thick, smooth consistency forms. Begin scooping out the mix into small 1-1 1/2 sized balls. 

  3. Place each ball onto a waxed sheet of paper and put in the freezer for 30-45 minutes.  

  4. While the balls are freezing, you can start to melt your chocolate morsels. Fill a large pot on the stove with water, then place a smaller pot on top of it. This is a double boil method that will help prevent the chocolate from burning. Over medium heat, begin to add your chocolate to the small pot on top and continue to stir until all chocolate has melted.

  5. Add in 2-3 drops of equal parts yellow and red food coloring. You can add more red to make the orange darker, or more yellow to lighten the color. 

  6. Remove the OREO Cookie balls from the freezer. Dip the top half of the ball into the warm chocolate and place it back onto the wax paper. Once all balls have been dipped in the orange chocolate, return them to the freezer for an additional 15-20 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened. 

  7. Remove the balls from the freezer and use black icing tube to create basketball seams on top of the orange chocolate tops. 

  8. Return the balls to the freezer until you are ready to serve. 

  9. Serve & enjoy!
