Chocolate Covered Cookie Balls

" It's Always Tea Time", just like my little sign says, so let's enjoy a little treat outside, shall we?  Recently, my friend Mary, who blogs at Home Is Where the Boat Is made these cookie treats and I just knew that Cissy and I had to make them!  You can see the beautiful photos of them here. 

 


 I bought this pretty towel and crocheted the edge and gave it to my daughter for Mother's Day, after seeing what my friend Karen,  from Beatrice Euphemie Vintage Cottage Style did recently.  Thank you, Karen,  for the inspiration! 

 I'm using this pretty teacup that my dear daughter gave me one year for Christmas.  Isn't the matching spoon cute?

 

 A sweet niece gave me this darling sign that I keep in my Butler's Pantry, which I use as my tea area.  Thank you, Maggie!!

 

Little Miss Cissy did everything in making these cookie balls!  That girl is a kitchen whiz!  She dipped every single cookie ball in the melted chocolate, too.  I was Cissy's sous chef, and did help a little with the sprinkling.


 Doesn't she look so proud of her treats to take home to her family? This little one loves to come over to my house one day a week to cook/bake.  She gets in the car when I pick her up from school, and says, "So, what are we making today?"

Chocolate Covered Cookie Balls

These little cookie balls will have you clamoring for more. Cissy brought them home for her family, and they loved them. One of her brothers shared one with a friend and the friend told his mom that it was the best thing that he ever tasted!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 package of Oreo cookies (Cissy and I used the vanilla birthday cake ones)
  • 3/4 of a container of vanilla frosting
  • Vanilla almond bark (We used CandiQuick)
  • Sprinkles for decorating

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Grind the Oreo cookies in a food processor, or crush them in a food safe bag with a rolling pin.
  2. Add the vanilla frosting and mix to combine. We did all this in the food processor.
  3. Shape the mixture into balls, and then place the balls onto cookie sheets that are lined with parchment paper. Freeze the cookie balls for 30 minutes.
  4. Melt the vanilla almond bark according to the package directions.
  5. Take the cookie balls out of the freezer, dip each one in the melted chocolate, place back onto the parchment paper, and immediately sprinkle with colored sprinkles (I was the assistant during this process!).

My sweet grandson, Caiden, celebrated his 12th birthday this past week.  I take the grands out on a birthday date on a day near their birthday.  Caiden is on of Cissy's three brothers.

Thank you for your visit!  xo

  3. She is the cutest cook! She and her brother favor each other.

    Your edging is a perfect complement to the tea towel. I may have to zip over there and see how to accomplish that!

  20. When I learn to crochet, I will make some of those towels! I love the look of them and it is such a nice way to add a homemade touch to a gift. So love to see Cissy learning all these wonderful skills from you, and building so many wonderful memories. So you are now the "sous chef"? I'm sure Cissy loves her helper ;) Happy belated Mother's Day to you, xo Deborah

  29. Dear Kitty:
    Caiden and Cissy are so cute! What great helpers - well I think you said you were the helper. What a fun post you shared and how do you every stay so skinny? I love the towel and also that fun sign! Thanks for sharing.

  30. These look delicious! What fun to have Cissy there to help. My granddaughter comes once a week and we go thrifting together. I am teaching her the ropes. Happy Birthday to Caiden!

  31. How special that you have a set time aside each week to bake with Cissy! I think these cookie balls sound amazing, and not too hard, but just a little time consuming, but so worth the effort in the end! What a blessing that you are passing on your talents to the next generation, such a special bond you are creating between you and your grandchildren. A blessing indeed! And your teacup is gorgeous. I love your crocheted addition to the handtowel, my grandmother does that for me with handtowels, and it is so special to hang knowing her hands have graced it with love, even as she does it being blind. Cute tea sign too! And lovely tea table, so inviting :) Hugs to you today!
