Cheesecake is definitely one of my all-time favourite desserts and these oreo cheesecake balls combine my love for cheesecake with the divine cookies and cream flavour of oreos. If you want to make friends at a dinner party or impress family at the next bbq, TAKE THESE! I guarantee that all hands will be reaching for one within seconds.
This recipe does require a little bit of patience. That is because we are not making a traditional cheesecake recipe with a biscuit base, in fact there is no base whatsoever, that’s what makes these cheesecake balls. For that reason, the oreo cheesecake balls needs to ‘set’ and become quite firm before you can coat them in milk chocolate. That is why the instructions direct you to set the cheesecake balls in the freezer for twenty minutes prior to dipping in chocolate.
If the oreo cheesecake balls are not set, firm or slightly frozen when you dip them into melted chocolate, they may melt and you may end up with a bowl of chocolatey cheesecake mess. Whilst I have absolutely no doubt that this mess would taste FANTASTIC, it would not be the desired end result which is beautiful little bite sized balls of oreo cheesecake goodness.
INGREDIENTS FOR THIS RECIPE
I found sugar free copy cat Oreos in the health food isle of Woolworths and used those in this recipe but feel free to use regular Oreos or any cookie of your choice.
When it comes to powdered stevia, I use my blender to turn this stevia into powder form and then store in an airtight container for whenever I need a sugar free icing sugar. Use code BLONDE10 to save on Naturally Sweet products.
