Peppermint-Oreo Cookie Balls

17 Dec

Okay, another peppermint related recipe, but I can’t help it! Christmas is almost here and the hustle and bustle is really picking up. You are getting anxious about baking and making all of the holiday treats. Chocolate is a perfect treat for the holidays and I believe that you can never go wrong with chocolate.

This delicious recipe is a mix of flavors and textures that will make your taste buds jump with excitement! With the mix of oreos and peppermint, this will be a hit.

Just follow the instructions below.

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Reserve 1 Tbsp. chopped candy. Mix remaining candy with cream cheese and cookie crumbs until well blended.
  2. Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 min.
  3. Place unwrapped chocolate squares in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 2-1/2 min. or until chocolate is completely melted, stirring every 30 sec.
  4. Dip balls in melted chocolate; place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan. Sprinkle with reserved candy.
  5. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
**To easily coat cookie balls with the melted chocolate, add balls, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2 forks to roll balls in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove balls with forks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Place balls in prepared pan; let stand until chocolate coating is firm.
Enjoy!
