Mocha Kahlua OREO Cookie Balls recipe...for grown-ups!

OREO cookie balls.  They're totally a thing.

Call them OREO cookie balls, call them OREO truffles, call them OREO orbs of deliciousness.  Call them what you want....just make them.

These babies could not be simpler.  The basic recipe is OREO cookies mixed with cream cheese and dipped in chocolate.

From there, you can get creative (really cute ideas on this site). Make them festive for the holidays...

...or change up the ingredients a bit.  For these, I used chocolate creme OREOS and added espresso powder and Kahlua.  The filling was so good, I almost ate it all before rolling and dipping them.

The tops are sprinkled with just a bit of gold disco dust...you know, to be fancy for the holidays.  Each one is topped with a chocolate-covered coffee bean.

        1 pkg. (8 oz.) brick cream cheese, softened
        1 & 1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder
        2 TBSP Kahlua
        1 pkg. (15.75 oz.) OREO Chocolate Creme Cookies, finely crushed (about 3 cups)
        chocolate bark or chocolate candy melts, melted
        gold disco dust

  
Mix the cream cheese, espresso powder and Kahlua until smooth. Stir in the cookie crumbs until blended.

Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 min.

Dip balls in melted chocolate; place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan.

Sprinkle with the disco dust and place a coffee bean on each one before the chocolate sets.

Done. 
       
OREO cookie balls.  Yep.  You need them.

  17. First of all, these are indeed out of this world. But I do have a question ... I used Wilton candy melts and had a devil of a time with the dipping. Yours are so smooth and pretty; mine are most decidedly not smooth and pretty. Not sure if it's the nature of the oreo truffle "cake ball" or the dipping medium. Little bits of the oreo kept falling into the chocolate and soon, the chocolate would seize up on me. So .... my question is, What chocolate did you use? Mercken, maybe? Almond bark? Wilton?
