To make this holiday season even sweeter, Oreo is releasing a Peppermint flavor, available for a limited time at select retailers. I’m obsessed with mint & chocolate. I make s’mores with peppermint patties. (Try it. You can thank me later.) I wait for Peppermint Mochas the way others wait for Pumpkin Spice Lattes. So Peppermint OREOS??? Sign. Me. Up.
They did not disappoint. Oh no, they did not.
To try them out, we made these INCREDIBLE Oreo cookie balls!! They were so easy and fun. Gracie and I made these together and they were super simple. It probably took us 15 minutes total prep time (not including time to chill the balls after we dipped them in chocolate).
I served these at our housewarming party on Saturday. I set them out on the buffet table and snapped a picture of the table.
Someone else arrived and I went to welcome them in. I came back to take a nice close-up picture of my pretty Peppermint Oreo Balls. I came back and they were gone. G-O-N-E. Every single one of my adorable Oreo Balls were GONE.
They were obviously very yummy and a big hit.
Anyway, here is the recipe, sans finished picture of my gorgeous Peppermint Oreo Balls because my extended family cannot show self control around Oreos apparently. Humph.
PEPPERMINT OREO BALLS
- 1 pkg (8 oz) brick cream cheese, softened
- 1 pkg (15.25 oz) OREO Cookies with Peppermint Creme, finally crushed
- 4 pkg (4oz each) semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted
- 8 starlight mints, coarsely crushed (or use candy canes), red nonpareils, or decoration of your choice!
Do not leave them unattended, they WILL disappear!!!
disclosure: this was a sponsored campaign from OREO.
