My niece Zo has been wanting to make these Oreo cookie ball thingeees but I just thought~~well—I just thought the title!! That’s why I gave it the name!!! However—Zo being Zo was bound and determined to get one of these cookie ball thing-a-ma-bob-eees in my mouth!!! So~~she got her chance when papa went to the store.  She asked me to call him and let her demands I mean shopping list be known!!  She wanted these~~~


Well—when he brought them puppppeeez home Zo and her mommy pulsed them up with the food processor!! With a little tutorial from me~~WenDee~~being the great wonderful aunteeee that I am!!! Now—back to the purchase of those cookies~~I can tell ya know that when dad saw the cost of these name brand chocolate cream-filled cookies that he said !@#% these @#$% cookies are expensive.  They are well worth the investment when you see what beautiful ball-ish food item they helped produce.  Is ball-ish a word?? I really don’t know nor do I care—I like the sound of the word…so I am gonna use it!!!  Now…this is a very lengthy recipe so prepare yourself for a blister on your pencil holding fingers.  The next and only other ingredient that you mix with these cookies is cream cheese~~yeah—NOW ya’ see why I chose the title!!!

Well.well.well here’s the little princess in all her glory opening up the 2nd and ONLY other ingredient that gets incorporated with these cookies!!! I know that I have mentioned this before but I thought it important enough to mention yet again!!! While I am on the subject of Zo~do you notice the pink and black little box lookin’ thing?? Yeah—down close to the cream cheese.  There is a reason for that~~just let me tell ya’.  She wants to be able to multi task—now…you may be a bit confused by that statement!!! It looks like to the virgin eye of all non-texters that she would in fact be doing a single activity, task, project or nuisance but let me assure you that she is in fact doing 2 things.  She is opening the cream cheese while reading an urgent text—probably from her famous “toxic twin”.  Most of  you will be familiar with this twin if you follow me even the slightest amount on FB~~because this is usually a daily comment made by the princess herself. 

Ok~~back to the cookies…NO…ball cookies or whatever they are.

Isn’t that a nice picture of the cookie crumbs and hands?? Notice that I have not shown a picture of my sister participating in this activity because I was given strict orders—that her face better not appear on this post!! I will be the first to say that both of these beautiful ladies would make fantastic hand models.  I am sorry but I can’t resist~~notice that they both have their robes on!!?? Did ya’ pick up on that!!??

Julie~~you could have a career in hand modeling.  Long, slim, slender, tiny hands…what more could you ask for in a hand!!!??? I mean really?? Not only is her face a thing of beauty but her hands are as well.  Hmmm~~I guess one of us had to get the beauty while the other got the brains??

misc pics 050Here they all are~~ready for a little dip in some warm white luscious chocolate.  Yelp—that’s what I said~~white chocolate.  I thought I was going to be sick when I read the ingredients for this one!!!!

Here is the little baby cookie ball now!!! I am here to tell ya that it is not at all what you expect!!!  I loved them—now your gonna need a cup of coffee to cut the richness of them but they are GOOD!!!

Ok lookseee there~~that is Zo’s hand…she is working!!! She is being the HAND MODEL for this picture!!! Even more importantly~~she is being the taste tester!!!! Oh yeah babeeee!!!!!  I would also like to just say for the record that someone else was doing a fantastic job of multi-tasking during this activity.  However—a hand model never reveals her face.  Might I just add~~like mother…like daughter!!! LOL!!! One more thing~~Zo…thanks for nagging the ever living daylights outta’ me until these were made!!! Even papa David agreed that they were good~~and that there folks is sayin’ somthin’!!!!
