Recipe type: Main dish
9 ounces chocolate wafers (such as Bauducco), broken
⅓ cup whole milk
2 tablespoons canola oil
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar (about 3⅜ oz.)
1 cup salted butter, softened
10 cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreos), crushed into small pieces
Dipper suggestions: apple slices, strawberries, and pretzels.
Place chocolate wafers, milk, oil, and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat on low, slowly increasing speed to medium-high, and beat until mixture is well blended and uniform, scraping bowl as necessary, about 2 minutes. Add cream cheese, powdered sugar, and butter; mix on medium-low until combined. Scrape mixture to bottom of bowl, and freeze for 30 minutes.
Place crushed Oreos on a plate. Using gloved hands, shape mixture into a ball; carefully roll cheese ball in Oreos to coat. Wrap in plastic wrap, and chill until firm, about 1 hour. Unwrap and serve with dippers.
4 thick-cut bacon slices, cooked and coarsely chopped
4 medium eggs
Preheat oven to 450°F. Combine baking mix and sugar. Slowly stir in ⅔ cup of the buttermilk just until dough comes together. Stir in cheese and bacon.
Flatten dough into a ½-inch thick disk. Cut 3 (4-inch) rounds out of dough. Use scraps to form 1 more round, to have 4 total. Place rounds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make a ¼-inch deep well in the center of each round.
Crack 1 egg into each well. Brush edges of rounds with remaining 2 tablespoons buttermilk. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown and eggs are set, 13 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly.
