RECIPE: Cool Mint OREO Cookie Balls

I had such a blast at Kraft Kitchens!  The following cool mint recipe is one we made while in Chicago.  OH MY GOODNESS!  This was fabulous… so good in fact, that I made it for dessert for Thanksgiving.  Have fun getting the kids to help out!

Also note, my sister-in-law doesn’t like white chocolate, so I changed the recipe a bit and made it with BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, instead of the white.OREO MInt Cookie Balls

Prep Time: 30 min. plus refrigerating

Makes: 40 servings, 1 cool mint cookie ball each.

What You Need

  • 6 oz. (3/4 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 pkg. (15.25 oz.) DOUBLE STUF OREO Cool Mint Crème Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, finely crushed (about 4 cups)
  • 2 pkg. (6 squares each) BAKER’S White Chocolate, melted
  • 6 drops green food coloring
  • 2 Tbsp. chocolate sprinkles (or crushed mints)

Make It

  • MIX cream cheese and cool mint cookie crumbs until well blended.
  • SHAPE into 40 (1-inch) balls. Mix melted chocolate and food coloring until well blended. Dip balls in chocolate; place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan. Top with sprinkles.
  • REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.

How to Store: Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.

How to Make Cookie Crumbs: Crushing OREO Cookies is a cinch with a rolling pin and a resealable plastic food storage bag. Or, process the cookies in your food processor or blender.

How to Easily Dip Balls: To easily coat balls with the melted chocolate, add balls, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2 forks to roll balls in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove balls with forks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Place balls in prepared pan; let stand until firm.
