Topiary Trees Oreo Balls

Topiary Trees Oreo Balls

300g oreo biscuits

250g block cream cheese - softened

White chocolate for dipping and green oil based colouring

Floral decorations or 100's and 1000's

Lollipop sticks

Small flower pot mould

Chocolate sprinkles or chocolate crumbs

Crush the oreo biscuits as coarsely or finely as you like and add to the cream cheese and mix thoroughly.

Roll into balls of two different sizes, approximately walnut size for the larger balls. Put in the fridge to make firm.

Melt the white chocolate gently in the microwave and add a drop of green colouring. If the chocolate appears too thick for dipping add a teaspoon of copha. Carefully dip your oreo balls in the green chocolate, let excess drip off and place on baking paper to set. If using 100's and 1000's sprinkle these on before the chocolate sets.

Heat a skewer, wipe dry and poke holes through the centres of the oreo balls. This makes it easier to add to lollipop sticks.

Add the balls, one small, one larger to the lollipop sticks spaced appropriately apart. The oreo balls should sit firmly onthe sticks, if they slide dot a drop of melted chocolate to hold in place.

Make some solid chocolate mini flower pots - add chocolate crumbs to the top while wet and leave to set. When set, pop out of moulds and again with a hot skewer make a hole in the centre. Push the lollipop sticks with the oreo balls into the hole all the way to the bottom. The flower pots need to be solid to hold the weight of the 'trees'. If they aren't balancing, try smaller sticks.

If using floral decorations, lay the 'trees' on their side and attach each flower with a drop of melted chocolate. This is quite time consuming.
