By this point everyone has made oreo truffles or cake balls. They are both simple, yet over-the-top amazing little treats. Last week we celebrated my brother's college graduation from UNC and so to celebrate I made a few trays of these in carolina blue and white. I come from a family of Duke fans so having the house turn Carolina blue for one day was great. A little drizzle is something that really impresses the average person despite its simplicity. Because of this, I put drizzle over everything. Even simple cake or oreo balls get the bakery-style touch depending on how you choose to decorate them. I'll put the recipes up here just in case you don't have them. In all the rush of the day and the graduation party I forgot to take any pictures of the inside, guess you'll just have to make them to see!
Even though these recipes have circulated around a lot of recipe sites I know the cake balls come from Bakerella and she has the oreo recipe on her site as well.

Oreo Truffles
1 package oreos
1 8-ounce package cream cheese
1 package candy coating

Crush oreos (cream filling and all) until fine. In a large bowl combine crushed oreos and cream cheese. Work cream cheese in with hands until incorporated. When finished roll mixture into balls and dip in coating. Decorate however you'd like!

Cake Balls

1 can frosting (16 oz.)
1 package chocolate bark (regular or white chocolate)
wax paper

1. Make cake as directed on box and let cool once removed from oven.
2. Mix thoroughly with 1/2 can frosting
3. Roll mixture into small balls and place on cookie sheet

I keep finding Bakerilla pop up everywhere especially with cake balls. I love the coloring you had for yours, it really drew my eye and I'm so glad it's a recipe you have on here. I very well may use your recipe whenever I do my wedding favors, I've decided on cake balls I just can't decide on how creative I want to get with them. Thanks for posting this!
