I’ve been a treat making fiend lately, but I’ve been sharing them and not keeping them to myself. Tis the season! These are a great treat to make if you’re looking for something from your kitchen to give to people. Be aware though, they’re very addicting and you might end up eating them all before you give them away. I ended up giving half of them to my mom since my brother was visiting for the weekend.
This recipe has been going around a lot on a message board I frequent. Then I saw it on one of my favorite food blogs so I had to make them. Mine didn’t turn out as pretty though. The balls have to be frozen before you dip them in chocolate. They were messy to make and the oreo crumbs kind of got into the white chocolate. It all goes in your mouth in the end, so it’s all good. Your tummy won’t be disappointed.
