Orange Chocolate Dirt Balls-The #GreatHallowTweet Bloghop

It is day 1 of the #GreatHallowTweet Bloghop hosted by Renee from Flamingo Musings, and it is sure to be a ton of fun and give lots and lots of those Halloween treats that we love...either it be simple and sweet...or gross, either way..check out the linky on the sidebar and see what 17 other bloggers are coming up with.

For today, I chose to go a little short and sweet but something that just says Halloween when you look at them. Orange chocolate dirt balls, or oreo bon bons. When I think of Halloween, sweet comes to mind...chocolate, candy bars...the sticky gummy candies..cookies. So what better way for me to kick off this week than these little balls. You have the darkness, the blackness...from the oreo cookies and then the hard shell of the orange chocolate...the perfect colors for the day right?

Dirt Balls

1 package of oreo cookies
1 8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature

1 package of white chocolate melts, I used Wilton Candy Melts

Put all the Oreo cookies in a food processor and process until all cookies are finely crushed. Put into a medium bowl and mix with the cream cheese. Roll into balls and put onto a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper.

Melt the candy melts in a double boiler and dip the oreo balls until completely covered. Place back on the waxed paper and let sit until the chocolate is set..or if you are like me and not that patient..put into the freezer for a minute or two.

Ooooh, yum! That is a great variation on the mint flavored "truffles" I made last Christmas.

My mom and I made these last year for Christmas, but we dipped them in White Chocolate bark and drizzle with chocolate!

OMGOSH! Love how these look and love the name too. Nicely done!

These are definitely the perfect colored treats for Halloween. I can't believe I still haven't made oreo truffles for myself, especially after hearing so often how delicious they really are.

I heard those oreo truffles are good but I have yet to make or try them for myself.

Those are awesome April - so cute, and the kids would love them.

I guess this means a trip to the store for orange candy melts!

I love the dirt balls :) You could put them in a pan of oreo crumbs and add some gummy worms too!
