Nutella & Oreo Booze Balls

After a long weekend, its time to put your feet up and enjoy a glass of wine with something sweet. You’re in luck because these booze balls just landed on your screen.

While you can’t taste them, I can guarantee the basic ingredients will get you pretty excited – Nutella, Oreos and Amaretto.

This recipe came by as a result of failure.

I’ve done Nutella balls before and normally use vanilla wafers or similar, but this time – and despite two trips to shops – those were not in sight.

All of a sudden, a packages of Oreos was winking my way from the shelves and I though maybe I should introduce them to Nutella.

They might get along just fine.

So here it is, adapted recipe from Bloatal Recall:

Nutella & Oreo Booze Balls

  • 1 jar of Nutella
  • 2 small packages of Oreos, about 300 gr together
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 5 tablespoons of Amaretto (you can also use rum, brandy or bourbon)
  • pinch of salt
  • your choice of coating – coconut flakes, cocoa, cinnamon sugar, powder sugar, melted chocolate or sprinkles

First, you need to beat the hell out of those cookies. I tried putting them in a bag and then smashing it with rolling pin. That did fairly good job, but I had to still run it in a mixer to get it really fine without big crumbles.

Oreos are a bit more difficult to crumble because of the high filling content which makes the crumbles stick together, so you will need to use a bit of force and time to get it to a fine breadcrumb condition.

After you have your cookies ready, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. It will start looking like a smooth chocolate ice cream.

Don’t worry about how sticky it gets, or if you get it too dry you can always add a bit more alcohol.

Roll into balls of same size and put into a fridge for few hours to set.

The balls will be quite sticky, so I figured best way to get the coating to stick is to keep them cool and then apply the coating. I picked cocoa because it was at hand, but I have used coconut sprinkles before which I prefer more.

After you’re done with your chilling, coating and rolling, put your balls proudly on display and serve with coffee. Beware, depending on how much alcohol you use, keep them away from kids. Enjoy!
