Oreo Madness

I mentioned last week that my brothers birthday is TODAY!  So first Happy Birthday to my first real friend and still one of my best friends, my little brother! 

My brother just LOVES Oreos so here is his favorite recipe and one with a twist:

Traditional OREO Balls

1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 pkg.  (16.6 oz.) OREO Cookies, finely crushed
Melting Chocolate of your choice

MIX cream cheese and cookie crumbs until well blended
SHAPE into 48 1-inch balls. Dip in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with sprinkles of your choice.
REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.

Then just as I was working on this post yesterday I stumbled upon this Easter twist, HERE on Kraft Food's website.  These would be the perfect addition to any Easter event this weekend.

Spring OREO Cookie Balls

6 oz. (3/4 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 tsp.  orange zest
1 pkg. (16.6 oz.) Spring OREO Cookies, finely crushed
2 pkg.  (6 squares each) BAKER'S White Chocolate, melted, divided
2 drops each red, yellow and blue food coloring

MIX cream cheese, zest and cookie crumbs until well blended. Shape into 40 (1-inch) egg-shaped balls. Freeze 10 min. Meanwhile, spoon 1 Tbsp. melted chocolate into each of 3 small bowls. Tint each with a different color food coloring.
DIP balls in remaining (untinted) melted chocolate; place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan. Decorate with tinted chocolate.
REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.

Stay tuned tomorrow, for the Oreo cupcakes we will celebrate my brother's birthday with :)
