25 DAYS OF COOKIES DAY 3

ON THE SECOND DAY OF CHRISTMAS (COOKIES) MY TRUE LOVE BAKED FOR ME: NO BAKE PEPPERMINT OREO COOKIE BALLS

Living here in Florida, sometimes it’s just too hot to turn the oven on to bake something. Thats why I love recipes like this one from Moms Need To Know. Wonderfully delicious, semi-home made, and easy enough for the kids to get involved.
Here is the recipe: 

  • 1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 pkg (15.25 oz) OREO Cookies with Peppermint Cream, finely crushed (run them through a food processor for best results)
  • 1 pkg (4.25 oz) Semi-sweet baking morsels
  • 1/2 bag starlight mints or a few candy canes, finely crushed

Directions:

  1. Mix cream cheese and crushed Oreos until very well blended.
  2. Use a cookie scooper to scoop out balls and round them with your hands
  3. Place in a single layer on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet
  4. Place cookie sheet in the freezer for at least 30 minutes (this will allow them to firm up and make the coating process much easier)
  5. Melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until completely melted.
  6. Working quickly, coat cookie balls with chocolate. Use 2 forks to help ensure that they get coated well.
  7. Place coated balls back on the parchment paper and sprinkle with crushed starlight mints/candy canes.
  8. Return oreo cookie balls to the refrigerator for 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to completely firm up.

See, Easy no bake cookies! These would pair perfect with hot coco!
