I get to a point where I'm tired of pinning. Pin after pin of pleasure, painful pretties and purely perfect pieces (of, everything). Sometimes you just need to actually DO, GO, MAKE, BAKE, BUY or STEAL some of these taunting inspirations.
So this weekend, armed with 4 boxes of Oreos, I actually ticked a Pinterest box. This one:
I know what you're saying... "HANNAH! How COULD you?"
Well, I could, and I did. And they're a winner! For feeding your friend's hips with ;).
3 ingredients. So stop drooling and make 'em.
4x 150g packets of Oreos
1x 250g block of Philly cream cheese
enough chocolate for dipping
1} Empty 3 1/2 packets of Oreos into the food processor and wizz! Till you have very fine crumbs.
2} Tip the crumbs into a bowl and plop your softened block of cream cheese (I do mine in the microwave on 50% for a minute or so) into it. Rub it all around in there with a wooden spoon until it's all well combined.
3} Roll the mixture into balls, however big you like. I did mine about 1.5 inches across. Put them in the fridge just to harden a bit for 30mins.
4} While they're chilling, empty a chocolate block (dark is nicest) into a nice deep ceramic bowl and sit it swimming in a saucepan of simmering water. You might need more than one block... I couldn't gauge whether I had enough so I kept adding to it but ended up with heaps leftover... whoops.
5} Remove the chilled balls, use two forks to swish them around in the melted chocolate and let the excess drip off. Place on greaseproof paper.
6} Lastly, get that last half packet of Oreos that you have left. Crumble a couple into a bowl with your hands, and sprinkle some crumbs onto the top of your lovely creations. Chill.
