Cynthia's Story

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.

    @gwen I didn't need to thin the chocolate with the Andes. If it gets thick while coating, put it back in the microwave to melt it more. When I used white almond bark to make other flavored cookie balls, I have had to use a a spoonful of crisco. Good luck!
