Have you tried OREO Cookie Balls? They are absolutely amazing! Like, I took them to a church dinner and they were the first dessert to disappear from the table, amazing. Seriously that good. Want to know what makes them even better??!!? Turning them into cute little snowmen. These OREO Cookie Ball Snowmen were an absolute hit! We decided that they would be our gift to our neighbors this year. Since we’ve just moved to a new neighborhood, we thought it would be the perfect way to introduce ourselves.
Plus, during a time of year when desserts can become so complex, OREO cookie balls are so easy to make. Plus, you can mix up a bunch, pop the filling in the freezer and pull them out when you need a quick treat for guests or for an event. (Just don’t mix the filling in front of your children because you will end up with a small child begging to eat every last teaspoon before you have the chance to finish making them….. ask me how I know!)
Instructions for making OREO Cookie Ball Snowmen:
- 1 pkg (8 oz.) brick cream cheese, softened
- 36 OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 3 cups)
- 4 pkg. (4 oz. each) semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted
- Make it!
- 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.
- CUSTOMIZE it with your own ingredient additions or decorative skills.
- REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.
- Share and enjoy!
To decorate the snowmen you will also need small black circle candies, small orange candies, and mini OREOs. A quick trip to Walmart will get you all the ingredients that you need.
I substituted while baking chocolate for the semi-sweet baking chocolate to make the snowmen.
For the snowmen, instead of making 48 1-inch balls, I made one small ball and one slightly larger ball for each snowman. I ended up with 16 snowmen. You could make them a little bit smaller, but the Mini OREO hat tends to look oversized if the head is too small.
I rolled all the balls and popped them in the freezer. Freeze at least 10 minutes. I froze mine a little bit longer because I needed that desperate preschooler to go to sleep before I could finish.
Then, I melted the chocolate and dipped all of the large balls and set them on the waxed paper to harden.
Then, I dipped one small ball and pressed it onto the top of a large ball allowing some extra chocolate to drip in-between the two to hold them together. I attached the eyes, nose and mini OREO as well. And continued with the rest of the snowmen.
We thought sharing these would be a good reason to meet our neighbors, so I packaged up the snowmen and attached some super cute snowmen tags that I created for us to give away.
