No Bake Cookie Treats
These ugly cookie/candy treats are love at first bite for most people. TRY them!
1 package of Oreo (type) cookies (36-48 cookies)
1 to 1 1/2 package(s) Dark Chocolate Chips
1 tsp paraffin (1/2" cube)
Dampen a cookie sheet or platter- the damp helps hold the wax paper in place. Spread a sheet of waxed paper onto the cookie sheet. Set aside.
In a food processor, grind the cookies to crumbs. They will be sort of gooey due to the filling.
Add the package of cream cheese to the crumbs in the food processor. It blends more easily if you break the cheese into chunks. I did NOT soften the cream cheese first.
Using a small cookie dough scoop, or a teaspoon, drop the paste onto waxed paper. I try to form the paste into ball shapes- or at least a semblence of round. If the paste is too sticky, place in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Once your paste is all formed into balls, or your first cookie sheet is full... place the balls into the freezer for 20 minutes. (Continue to make the paste into balls on a second sheet if necessary.)
|My "double boiler"|
Melt the paraffin first, in the bowl of the double boiler- then add the chocolate chips. Stir as they melt. Turn the heat OFF to avoid steam burns. The hot water will keep the chocolate melted.
