Nilla Blobs (Plus my Oreo & Andes version!)

Another recipe courtesy of Jenny. You should have seen my reaction after she gave me my first one. You should have seen her reaction to the alternate version below....YUM!

4 hershey bars (with our without almonds) 
1 large tub of cool whip 
1 box nilla wafers

  • Crush nilla wafers in large ziploc with rolling pin- to a fine powder. Set aside in shallow dish. 
  • Dump cool whip tub in to large mixing bowl; set aside. 
  • Melt hershey bars in microwaveable dish, If using Hersheys with Almonds, then chop them up first.
  • Let chocolate sit until not too warm. (15 mins or so) 
  • Add melted chocolate to cool whip; stir. (it'll look kinda chunky) 
  • Freeze mixture for 1/2 hr. 
  • Drop spoonfuls of cool whip mixture into nilla wafer crumbs and coat. 
  • Place "blobs" on wax paper covered cookie sheet. 
  • Freeze for 20 minutes then place in ziploc/airtight container. 
  • Serve from freezer - if they sit out too long they become too soft. : D 
  • Although they wouldn't last on the counter anyway - they get eaten in seconds.
If you like some extra chocolate & some minty flavor then use the following alternative:
  • Substitute Oreos for Nilla Wafers
  • Subsitute Andes Mints for Hersheys Bars
  • HEAVEN in a blob....oh yes.
