I made this for the chocolate lovers (myself included) for Christmas and none of us liked them so this recipe is not a keeper!
These are a cookie exchange staple at my house, people request them every year. We also call them "oreo balls". Although I make many Xmas candies these are definitely the easiest ones by far! Try them, you won't be disapointed.
I normally shy away from recipes that use prepared ingredients, but these could accompany me to the fabled 'desert island'!
I made these for our son's wedding reception this year. I added green food color to half the white coating and red food color to the other half white coating before I dipped the the balls. Green & pink polka dots were the print of the flower girl dresses!!! The 'oreo balls'(as we call them) were a BIG hit.
A lady made these for the cookie exchange last year. They were this hit of the party!
