Oreo fudge balls

How can something this delicious have so few ingredients, that is what I’d like to know. I took great pleasure in offering them to my family, going “guess what’s in them??” and then informing them that there are in fact only four ingredients. It’s the small things in life.

These oreo ‘fudge’ balls actually aren’t fudge at all, but you wouldn’t know unless you were the one to make them. They are incredibly moist, creamy and chocolatey, with a very mild tang from the cream cheese followed by a light undertone of vanilla.

I used milk chocolate but would have wanted to use dark chocolate instead – unfortunately lack of funds and petrol made the decision for me.

I also painstakingly made my first vine while making the oreo fudge balls, check it out here. The 6 seconds of footage took me hours to make, but I’m so proud of it! Hopefully it won’t take me as long in the future, because that was stress city let me tell you.

IngredientsMore oreo fudge balls

240g oreos
120g cream cheese
½ teaspoon vanilla essence
Chocolate for melting (preferably dark)

Method

  1. Blend the oreos finely in a food processor, and mix by hand into a bowl of the cream cheese. You may need to heat the cream cheese a little to allow for easier mixing, but be careful!
  2. Add the vanilla essence and 2 teaspoons of water, and mix thoroughly.
  3. Roll the mixture into balls (I used 1 tablespoon of mix for each ball), and place in the freezer for about an hour.
  4. Take the balls out of the freezer while you melt the chocolate, then coat the balls with it and place in the fridge until the chocolate has hardened. Voilà!
