Oreo Peppermint Balls

Cynthia Dorrel Recipe

By Cynthia Dorrel CynDluvs2bake

Prep Time:

I used Shannon Smith's Oreo Cookie Ball recipe but used Andes Peppermint Crunch instead of the Almond Bark. With the little bit of crunch, it tastes like another version of Peppermint Bark.


I pkg
oreo cookies
1-8oz. pkg
neufchatel cheese
1-10oz pkg
andes peppermint crunch baking chips (seasonal)
red sugar sprinkle, crushed candy cane for decoration-optional

Directions Step-By-Step

Using the food processor, crush the pack of Oreo cookies until dirt-like. Add Neufchatel Cheese to make into dough. It will appear wet.
Roll the dough into bite-size balls and place on parchment paper. Put in the refridgerator for 15min.
Place Andes Peppermint chips in ceramic bowl and microwave until melted smooth. It will turn pink. Add some shortening to thin out if needed.
Place each ball on a fork and pour the melted peppermint mixture on top using a spoon. Tap off excess, then place on parchment paper using a knife. Sprinkle with Red Sugar before coating hardens.

Hi is there a difference in cream cheese and the neufchated cheese? I use cream cheese when I make these oreo cookie balls and they are hit at our houes and we give as gifts to friends.

This is a great recipe! I've made them with a pink colored candy coating mix and they do turn out pretty. I am sincerely frustrated not to be able to locate the pink Andes chips you listed. Where do you find them? I have all sorts of recipes I would love to add them to. Brownie Bites; Chocolate cookies; as a garnish in a Bark recipe. etc.
