Peppermint Oreo Balls

Oreos. Cream cheese. Chocolate chips. Done. Add candy canes? Even better.

That’s pretty much the extent of this recipe! If they sound like a sugar explosion, it’s because they are. You can only have one at a time, but for those few bites, you feel like you might just be the happiest you’ve ever been. These would be a great addition to any party – unless there are children there, in which case I recommend you keep these far, far away.

Happy Holidays!

Peppermint Oreo Balls

18 Oreos (the regular ones)
1/2 package cream cheese
3 candy canes
3/4 bag of milk chocolate chips

Crush candy canes. I placed them in a ziplock bag and crushed them with a hammer.

Crush oreos in a food processor. (I bought a mini chopper on Black Friday for $4! Can you say ‘steal’?! So what if it took me forever to crush 18 Oreos.) Add candy canes and and cream cheese and mix until a soft dough forms. Peppermint Oreo Balls

Roll into balls and place on a baking sheet covered in wax paper. Chill for about 1 hour.

Microwave chocolate chips for 30 seconds at a time until melted. Dip balls into chocolate and return to the wax paper. Top with candy canes if you like.
