My family goes through a bag of OREOs like nobodies business. They are a favorite of my kids, my husband and I have also been known to eat one or 30 of them for a snack. And even my son’s pickiest friends will indulge in a cookie snack while over for a play date. So while I like sharing the cookies as it is, I also like to use them in sweet treats (OREO stuffed chocolate chip cookies anyone???). OREO has a classic cookie ball recipe that they invited me to put my own spin on and share with my readers. So I reached out to my pal, Kristin of Meringue Bake Shop, to come and create with me. The holidays are all about sharing and spending time together. Kristin and I love to be creative together so I thought this would be a fun way to get to hang out and create something super yummy. Plus, she’s a pro in the sweets department.
The basic cookie ball recipe includes a whole package of OREOs, a block of cream cheese and some baking chocolate. Kristin and I are both really inspired by Christina Tossi of Momofuko Milk Bar and her ridonkulous Compost Cookies. So we decided to create our version in cookie ball form. But instead of creating a ball that you might eat like a truffle, we decided to make it a little bit larger (I LOVE me some sweets) and serve it with dippers as you might with a cheese ball.
