hydrogenated goodness

The awards banquet for my son's swim team was held the other day. Next to the standard congratulatory sheet cake was a tray of round chocolate desserts. My son tried one and loved it so much that my wife and I both wanted a taste. We each tried a bite smaller than a marble and knew immediately that we would have to make some after we reach our weight loss goals. Other people must react the same way because there was a stack of recipes on the table. They taste so good that they've got to be really bad for you. Here is the recipe for "Beamer Balls." Proceed at your own risk.

1 package (18 oz) of regular Oreos
1 package (8 oz) of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips

Crush Oreos in a blender or food processor
Place crushed Oreos in a bowl and add softened cream cheese
Use a mixer to combine cookie crumbs and cream cheese
Use a melon baller or tablespoon to form dough into one inch balls
Place on a cookie sheet and chill for 30 minutes
Melt chocolate chips in a small bowl in microwave on medium power
Dip each ball in chocolate and place on cookie sheet
Chill for 30 minutes before devouring entire batch
