Oreo, Oreo, Oreo Holiday Treats!

A little behind on posting my Christmas baking but here are some cute little Oreo Snowmen Cookies, Oreo balls and Oreo peppermint balls you can make for a winter treat.  Parchment/Wax Paper is a must during the holiday season.

Oreo Cookie Balls

4oz of cream cheese
18 finely crushed oreos (I put them in a bad and smashed them with a meat tenderizer)
1 bag of candy melts or 1 package of bakers square or a few squares of white chocolate almond bark, whichever you like. I used Wilton Vanilla Candy Melts and had to put oil/shortening in them because I could never get the chocolate thin enough. I like the almond bark much better.  

Mix the cream cheese and oreos together and form into little balls then freeze for about 30 minutes.  Melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds so you do not burn the chocolate. then dip the frozen balls into the white chocolate and garnish with green and red glitter crystals.  This will make approx 20-24 depending on the size of the ball you make, if you make them larger then it will make less. Keep refrigerated until you are ready to display/serve. 

P.S. Hubby loved these!

Oreo balls with green/red sprinkles
 Peppermint Oreo Cookie Balls

4 oz of cream cheese
2 peppermint patty candy fun size or 1 regular size
1-2 peppermint candy candy
18 finely crushed oreo cookies
1 bag of candy melts or almond bark, add oil or shortening to the candy melts to thin as necessary

Mix the cream cheese, oreos, peppermint pattys and some crushed candy canes together and form into little balls then freeze for about 30 minutes. Melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds so you do not burn the chocolate. then dip the frozen balls into the white chocolate and garnish with chopped candy canes pieces. This will make approx 20-24 depending on your size of the balls. Keep refrigerated until you are ready to display/serve. 
Peppermint Oreo Balls
Oreo Snowmen Cookies
25 Oreo Cookies (Adjust to how many you need)**** If you are going to make snowmen pops please use double stuff Oreo cookies much easier.
1 package of orange tic tacs
1 black glitter icing
1 bag of white candy melts or white chocolate almond bark melted see instructions above.  THIN WITH SHORTENING OR OIL.
1 toothpick or lollipop stick

All you do is dip the oreo cookies in the melted white chocolate, use a toothpick to dip it and place on a parchment paper then place a tic tac in the center for his nose and use the black icing to dot eyes and a mouth and leave to dry/harden for at least an hour and package in a tin or container.
