Recipe Tips

NoteYou will need 1-1/3 pkg. (300 g each) Oreo Cookies to get the 36 cookies needed to prepare this recipe.

How to Easily Dip Cookie BallsFor best results, keep half the cookie balls refrigerated while dipping the remaining balls in melted chocolate. Use 2 forks to roll cookie balls in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove cookie balls with forks, then shake gently to allow excess chocolate to drip back into bowl before placing balls on prepared baking sheet. If chocolate gets too thick to coat cookie balls, return chocolate to microwave for 20 sec.; stir.
