This is a play on the footballs I made for Superbowl season! With Oreo Cookies round shape, and creamy center they make perfect candidates for my finger food party desserts! These Oreo Cookies are dipped in orange chocolate,  and decorated with black decorating gel to resemble basketballs! They are not only fun to display, but yummy too! Here’s what I did to make these basketballs!:

First Off, A Supply List – You’ll Need:

  • Wilton Orange Chocolate Melts – I found these at Michael’s Craft Store
  • Wilton Black Decorating Gel – I found this at Michael’s Craft Store
  • Oreo Cookies
  • Toothpicks
  • A flat surface with waxed paper – if you have a small platter that will fit into your freezer, use that. The chocolate sets quick in the freezer
