OREO Play Up Dessert Winter Challenge {#OreoMoment}

Thanks to Liz, of a Nut in a Nutshell this amazing box of goodies arrived on my doorstep from OREO! Inside the main snowman container, I found two packages of Winter OREO's, a recipe book filled with inspiration, stacking holiday bowls from Crate & Barrel, holiday icing colors, candy cane sprinkles, star cookie cutter, chocolate dipping tool, snowman place mat, and gift tags from Paper Source. 


Did I mention the recipe book? I selected the OREO Cookie Balls, they were so easy to make before our guests arrived on Christmas Eve.


OREO COOKIE BALLS
Prep Time: 30 min. Total Time: 1 hr. 40 min. (including refrigeration) Makes: 48 servings

Ingredients:
1 pkg (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened (I used strawberry)
36 OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 3 cups)
16 oz. Semi-sweet Chocolate, melted

Instructions:
MIX cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended.
SHAPE into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 minutes. Dip balls in melted chocolate; place in single layer in shallow waxed paper lined pan.
REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm. 

Tips:
Use your imagination to create your own variation of OREO Cookie Balls. For starters, try switching the chocolate used to coat the cookie balls, choosing between milk chocolate  dark chocolate or white chocolate  Then top the glazed cookie balls with your choice of toppings, such as crushed candies, colored sprinkles or colored sugars. For added flair, decorate the balls with decorating gels or icings.


You cannot go wrong with OREO, as they are always loved by all! Add chocolate and I guarantee that your family and friends will be begging for more! I only had a few left, and I shared them with our neighbors packaged in the festive red polka dot gift boxes. Thank you OREO for this great challenge, and inspiration!
