I'm thinking these are probably not fat free

Meet my two BFFs Oreos & cream cheese.


Just kidding I do have a life...but these friends make one scrumptious Christmas dessert. I've been going back and forth over the years making the cake balls one year and the Oreo balls the next for the holidays. Boy was very excited to see the Oreo balls being made this year since they're his favorite. It's a popular recipe, but if you've never made them do give them a try. I promise you won't be disappointed...Oreos are very loyal...they never disappoint.

I usually toss the entire box of Oreos into the food processor...but that would mean I'd have to climb up to the top shelf to get it. Too much work...so I decided to just toss them in a bag (double ziploc bag it) and pound away with a rolling pin & or meat tenderizing mallet.

This cures frustration too! You want to get it to a fine consistency.

Add the crushed Oreos to an 8oz. box of softened cream cheese and mix together. If you want to stop here and grab a spoon I won't judge.

Roll mixture into balls then place on cookie sheet and pop in the freezer for about an hour.

Grab some Almond Bark...I like the vanilla flavored for these, but if you're feeling spunky go for the chocolate flavored. I just microwave mine to melt it. Then dip in the Oreo ball and set on wax paper to dry.

I think Santa will be enjoying these!
