I can't believe tomorrow is Halloween. Seriously, where did the year go? And, we have our building's annual Halloween party tomorrow. I am coordinating all the food for the potluck event, so of course, it wouldn't be right if I did not bring something. But, between today and tomorrow I only had a couple of hours to spare where I could actually prepare something, have it look decently Halloweenish and taste good.
I decided right away that it would have to be something sweet, simply because I love sweets. And then I remembered the super easy no bake Oreo Balls that I had made at some point last year. I rushed to the grocery store, picked up a package of Oreos, cream cheese and some sprinkles, and I was ready to go.
My 3 ingredient One Eyed Balls and little Pumpkin balls are super delicious and I can't wait for all the kids (and adults of course) to try them tomorrow.
You need to crush your Oreo cookies for this recipe. I simply stuff mine in a large ziploc bag and then pretty much bang it with a rolling pin. Works well and a great way to let all your stress out too.
You also need softened cream cheese. I honestly don't have time to soften it up, so I prefer using Philadelphia's Whipped Cream Cheese - it is super soft and works great.
One 8 oz tub/package of cream cheese (softened)
36 Oreo Cookies - finely crushed
Sprinkles - Orange, Chocolate, Green or other halloween colors and Eye Candy
Simply mix the crushed oreos and cream cheese in a ball until it is of a nice dough like consistency. Take small amounts and form little balls (I was able to make about 40).
Then take each ball, stick an eye candy (you could use M&M's) and then roll it in the sprinkles.
And that's it!! YOU ARE DONE!!
I also dabbed some balls in Orange sprinkles and used some green string like candy for the stem to form little pumpkins.
