Snowman Oreo Cookie Balls Recipe #cookieballs

162 Flares 162 Flares ×

A few weeks ago my friend Liz posted a Peppermint Oreo Cookie Balls recipe using Peppermint Oreos.  That made me REALLY want Oreos.  I’d never seen the peppermint variety before, so naturally, that’s what I had my eye on.  I brought them home and realized, well, hey! I could eat these and enjoy these, but I *could* also have a little fun with them and turn them into something more.  It got me thinking about cookie balls and the holidays and ultimately led to the idea of making cookie balls into snowmen!

Ingredients

    • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) brick cream cheese, softened
    • 36  peppermint OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 3 cups- food processor, Magic Bullet, food chopper make this a lot easier)
    • 4 pkg.  (4 oz. each) semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted
    • You will also want to have some longer sized toothpicks. The size I use is about the width of a sandwich container.
    • Mini chocolate chips
    • Orange starburst candies (you can also use orange icing)
    • Shimmery sugar crystals

 

Directions 

    • MIX cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended.
    • SHAPE into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 min. Dip balls in melted chocolate; place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan.
    • Sprinkle shimmery sugar crystals on the snowballs
    • REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.
    • Stack “snowballs” onto toothpick 3 high.
    • Using some icing or frosting for “glue”, add 2 eyes and a mouth using the mini chocolate chips.  
    • Cut a trianngular shape out of your Starburst candy for the nose.  Glue onto face using icing/frosting
    • Chill to set the icing.
