1 pkg. (8 oz.) brick cream cheese, softened
36 Oreo cookies, finely crushed (about 3 cups)
16 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, melted

3. Freeze 10 min.
4. Dip balls in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered rimmed baking sheet.

Snowmen OREO Cookie Balls
Prepare as directed using white chocolate and decorating the balls with decorating gels and frostings to resemble snowmen.
Christmas Tree OREO Cookie Balls
Get in the holiday spirit by decorating the OREO Cookie Balls as Christmas Trees. Substitute white chocolate for the semi-sweet chocolate and decorate balls with a decorating frosting to resemble Christmas trees. For easier dipping, use a toothpick to dip the cookie balls into melted chocolate; shake off excess chocolate then place on waxed paper. This may leave just a small hole on top of each ball that can be covered with a tiny dab of chocolate.
How to Store
Store in tightly covered container in the refrigerator.
Pack these delicious cookie balls in small containers. Then, add a colorful bow and gift tag to each container and you’ve got the perfect holiday or hostess gift.
Note: If any melted chocolate remains after all balls are coated, store in tightly covered container at room temperature until ready to use for another use.
Sprinkle cookie balls with additional cookie crumbs.
