Pam Hillman's First Choice Dessert!

Over on the Seekerville blog, we've been celebrating a month of firsts. Today, Pam Hillman is sharing her first choice dessert, Triple-Chocolate Oreo Cookie Ball.

Wow. How can you go wrong with triple-chocolate anything?



Triple-Chocolate Oreo Cookie Balls
with Pam Hillman

Thanks to author Ronie Kendig for this recipe. These Oreo Cookie Balls are SO good, but hard to make. I made them twice during Christmas and they were yummy!!

1/2 cup cold milk
1 pkg.  (3.9 oz.) JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
36 OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 3 cups)
1-1/2 pkg.  (8 squares each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate (12 squares), melted
1 square BAKER'S White Chocolate, melted (optional)


First thing you need to do is to crush the Oreo cookies as small as you can. If you mix your pudding and milk first, it will start thicken too soon.

                           






Mix ½ cup milk and 1 pkg of instant pudding. Fold the cookie crumbs into the pudding mixture. As you can see from the picture, it will be very crumbly. Don’t add milk. Crumbly is good!



Next, form small balls on a cookie sheet. This can be a little messy. I’m not sure how to do this without making a mess, but do your best. If you have a mini ice cream scoop, try that.



Once you have all your pretty little balls ready, put them in the freezer for 15-20 minutes. Then melt the baker’s semi-sweet chocolate and roll the Oreo cookie balls. Place them on a piece of wax paper until they harden.

Melt a square or two of white chocolate and drizzle on top of the chocolate balls if you want to make them just a little more elegant.


Serve with ice cold milk and enjoy!!!

  1. Pam, we're so glad you joined us today! I've got my mouth watering for one of your cookie balls! Wish I had the ingredients on hand. This may be a good project to do with my daughter. :)

  2. Oh, Pam, I made scotcheroo balls last week and they were a big hit! I can't wait to try these, sweet thang! Tell Ronie thank you for us.

    I'm psyched. I love making people smile with things that are really BAD for them in excess. But, in moderation????

    YUMBOLA!

  3. These things are really rich. But you have to keep eating them just to confirm how rich they really are.

    Just have a gallon of milk on hand and you're all set.

    Milk.

  4. Oh my goodness....I started drooling when I read triple chocolate. Very decadent. This might be a fun recipe to try for a our singles pity party Valentine get-to-gether. We can toast our singleness with cookie balls and milk! LOL.

  6. Kav, I'm not single, but I'll join you! I saw another recipe very similar to this using cream cheese instead of pudding.

    Good grief, you can't go wrong with cream cheese and oreos. I'm thinking of just making up a batch.

    Another thing to try is to put one of the cookie balls into the microwave for a FEW seconds, then top it with ice cream.

    Yum!!

  7. looks good - how do you keep them from rolling off the sides of the cookie sheet?! no way I can do these though - no room in the freezer and the room I do have isn't level plus I'm clumsy and they'd roll off in the floor and that's IF I can find ac ookie sheet - I had some but they had sides on them..when did they stop putting sides on them?!
    ok time for bed I think! :-)
