Robbie IN

Oreo Balls

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
4 cups crushed Oreo's (a 20-oz package)
1 Tablespoon shortening
15 ounces white candy coating
12 ounces chocolate-flavored candy coating

On high speed of mixer, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add cookies and beat until well combined. Refrigerate 2 hours until chilled enough to roll. Roll dough into 1" balls. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt white candy coating, stirring until smooth. Dip half of the balls completely coating them. Melt the chocolate candy

coating the same as above then coat the remaining balls completely in the chocolate coating. Place on wax paper until hardened. Drizzle candies with remaining alternate colored chocolate. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Ritz Crackers, 3 to 4 dozen

I have made both of these recipes a long time ago and they are delicious.

Microwave Vanilla Caramels

1 cup butter, melted
2 cups sugar
2 cups Karo syrup
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine butter, sugar, syrup and half of the cream. cook on high 22 to 27 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes until firm ball stage. ( I test this in cold water). Add remaining cream and vanilla and cook on high 12 to 15 minutes more. Pour into a buttered cake pan. Cool and then cut into squares.
