OREO Cookies

Happy 100th Birthday! I love, love, love Oreos but I don't eat the tops - only the bottoms with the filling.  And I really like the mini Oreo cookies - they're just the right size.
The first Oreo was sold in Hoboken, N.J. in 1912. Since then, the cream-filled cookie’s popularity has soared. More than 70 million Oreos are sold each day in more than 100 countries around the world.
Oreos are the number one selling cookie in the U.S.

Oreo Balls
1 (16 ounce) package Oreo cookies, crushed
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (24 ounce) package white chocolate bark
1 (24 ounce) package chocolate bark

Using a blender or hand held mixer, mix Oreos and cream cheese together.
Roll into walnut size balls. Chill for an hour.
Melt approximately 3/4 package of white almond bark.
Stick a toothpick in an Oreo ball and dip it in the melted white almond bark.
Allow to harden on wax paper. Takes about 15 minutes.
While waiting, melt about 1/4 package of chocolate almond bark.
When Oreo balls are no longer sticky to the touch, decorate with drizzles of chocolate and white almond bark.  Just use a sandwich bag with a tiny hole cut in one corner to drizzle the almond bark.

And I LOVE McDonald's McFlurry with Oreo cookies. Those crushed Oreos and ice cream - yummy!

I had one today as a matter of fact.  You gotta do what you gotta do!
