Cookies & Cream Cheese Ball Football

Fruit totally has a place in my life.
Right alongside my gigantic Cookies and Cream Cheese ball.
Which looks like a football.
That’s totally where it belongs.

Cookies and Cream Cheese ball

  • 8 oz cream cheese, cold
  • 4 tbsp. butter, softened (but not room temp) or margarine (cold)
  • 3 c. powdered sugar
  • 15 Oreos, crushed
  • 1 c. white chocolate chips
  • white chocolate melting discs, melted for piping
  • fruit, nilla wafers, graham, etc. for serving
  1. Whisk the cream cheese and the butter on high in a stand mixer until smooth.
  2. Add the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, whisking in between additions.
  3. Add in the white chocolate chips and 3-4 tbsp. of crushed oreos.
  4. Place remaining Oreo crumbs in a large bowl.
  5. Scrape the cream cheese mixture into the bowl– do not mix!
  6. Use a rubber spatula to “build up” the oreo crumbs around the cream cheese mixture as high as you can. Gently press the crumbs into the cream cheese.
  7. Use your hands to gently flip the cream cheese ball over, so the uncovered side of the ball is in the oreo crumbs. Continue to use the spatula to press crumbs into the cheese.
  8. Using your hands, gently pick up the cheese ball and lay it on a large strip of plastic wrap. Pour the rest of the crumbs over top of the ball.
  9. Wrap tightly in the wrap and freeze for about 30 minutes.
  10. Remove from freezer and form into a football shape with hands (on your serving platter).
  11. Use melted white chocolate to pipe on seams.

      THat looks divine.
      Dumb question, when you use recipage, do you enter the numbers for your instructions? I like how that looks!
      Also, how do you get it to not view with the keywords?
      By the way, you are doing a great job with people’s blogs…love seeing your handiwork everywhere!

        Hey Aimee! Thanks :)

        I just go in and make those changes in the post. So you paste your HTML in the HTML editor, and then switch back to compose. And then you can add the numbers, and pictures, and delete anything you want. It won’t make any changes on your Recipage card, just in the post.

      Oh, white chocolate cheeseball???? I’m SO there. This looks amazing! I love the idea of using the Oreos crushed on top. I might have to steal that idea. :)

        So my internet went down right in the middle of me trying to put some finishing touches on this post– including adding a link to your football cheese ball! I was hoping you wouldn’t see it until I fixed it, but oh well :) It’s there now!

      Looks divine! What would you use to dip it with, just the strawberries?

      • Ashton posted on January 26, 2013 at 5:08 pm (#)

        Any fruit would be great! I’ve also done graham crackers, animal crackers, and pretzels :)
