So here is what I made.
Ed's request: Crab Stuffed Deviled Eggs
I have made these before and he liked them so I obliged.
The required ingredients
Top eggs with sprinkling of paprika.
Yummy! Ed said they were a hit and were devoured pretty quickly!
Then I got brave and thought I would try a new recipe for Oreo Balls. I've never made them before and Ed told me the eggs were enough but I just got this desire to make them so I did.
Using a blender or a hand-held mixer, mix the Oreos and cream cheese together. I don't have a mixer (I have since asked for one for Christmas) so I used a blender. I discovered that it is easier to blend a few oreos at one time and empty them in to a bowl.
Next mix in the cream cheese. I imagine this would be much easier with a mixer...
You should end up with a dough of Oreos
Roll the "dough" in to walnut sized balls, place on wax paper and chill for an hour.
Melt either 3/4 package of white chocolate or milk chocolate chips in a bowl. Insert a toothpick into each Oreo ball.
Using the toothpick, coat each ball in the chocolate and place back on the wax paper. Allow to harden. I put them back in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes.
Then melt some more chocolate chips of your choice (about 1/4 package) and add to piping bag. Again, I used a sandwich bag. Once balls have hardend decorate with the piping. Use food coloring with white chocolate if you wish.
So I didn't get to try one of these bad boys out before Ed took them to work because I wanted him to have as many as possible. Plus I made 24 and I didn't want him to take an odd number to the party. (Yes, weirdo. I know.) So I was nervous about how they would taste but he sent me a text that said they were "incredible" and tasted like oreo fudge. So he saved me one and brought it home. Seriously delish! I will be making these again!
