Can you believe that 2018 is almost drawing to a close?! Just like every other year before, once December hits, you really start to realize just how fast time flies. While holiday parties are in full swing, it’s hard not to get wrapped up in the busy planning of holly jolly festivities.
If you are someone who likes to plan ahead, you might already be thinking about planning your New Year shindig. For me, I always like to stick to quick, easy, and affordable dishes for this celebration, especially after all the baking, gifting, and celebrating that closed out the year already.
If you, too, like the simple and easy but still incredibly delicious dishes to feed your friends and family, I’ve got just the recipe for you. Beth from The First Year blog created a show-stopping version of New Year’s Eve Oreo Balls that will knock your socks off!
These impressively fancy bites of sugary goodness will brighten up any dessert table and will certainly be the talk of the party. To create these, you’ll only need a few simple ingredients and a little bit of time. The best part? No baking required. What more could you want for a dessert?! Check out the recipe below to see just how to make these sweet treats!
1 package Oreos
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
chocolate almond bark
vanilla almond bark
edible gold leaf
gold pearl dust
Place half of the Oreos in a high-power blender or a food processor until you have Oreo crumbs. Repeat with the other half of package. Add cream cheese to the blender with the Oreo crumb mixture and mix until well combined.
Line a baking sheet with baking paper. Using a spoon, scoop out mixture and roll into balls. Place a few star sprinkles in each ball and roll to conceal them. Place on baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
Before pulling out of the refrigerator, melt chocolate almond bark and vanilla almond bark in separate double boilers. Take Oreo balls out of the refrigerator and dip into almond bark of choice. Before the bark dries completely, take tweezers and place edible gold leaf pieces atop. Once hardened, use a clean paintbrush to dust gold pearl dust atop each.
