The holidays are all about sharing and there’s nothing better than sharing America’s favorite cookie – except when that cookie is crushed and rolled up into the delicious, simple goodness of an OREO cookie ball, a bite-sized treat made with three easy ingredients. OREO cookies, Cream Cheese and Chocolate, yum!!
With those delicious ingredients in mind, my sister-in-law Bobbi Jo put her creativity to the test with these Holiday Oreo Cookie Balls. Adding white and milk chocolate, edible holiday sequins, and sugar sprinkles, this holiday dessert recipe was not only incredibly tasty, but beautifully presented as well.
And while the creation of some holiday treats can only add to the stress of such a busy time of year, OREO cookie balls are easy to make and a great way to spread a bit of festive cheer to help friends and family keep their holiday spirits high during the Christmas crunch! The best part about this dessert recipe is there’s no baking required! So let the kids join in on the fun with this easy-peasy recipe.
Oreo Cookie Balls
1 pkg. (8 oz.) brick cream cheese, softened
36 OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 3 cups)
4 pkg. (4 oz. each) semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted
MIX cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended.

Try adding peppermint extract to the cream cheese for an extra kick of flavor!
