Is your dessert table game day ready? We are big football fans in the GGG house and any chance to rally around our favorite teams is celebrated. So, I thought to myself, why not extend my game day spirit to the dessert table with these Game Day Ready OREO Cookie Balls.
If you know anything about Philadelphia, it’s that we take our sports teams seriously and that seriousness extends to our food. One of the things I love to do for game time is whip up a bunch of tasty foods to serve while watching the big game. Maybe I’ll whip up something cheesesteak-themed, something that uses a soft pretzel like a pretzel bun, or maybe it’s food decorated in my favorite team’s colors of green, silver and black.
This past weekend was a big game for my hometown team so I headed to my local store to pick up some game day essentials. I wanted something sweet on our snack table so I decided to make OREO Cookie Balls. OREO Cookie Balls are such a simple recipe, you literally need three ingredients – cream cheese, OREO cookies and semi-sweet baking chocolate. That’s it!
Step 1: MIX IT
Crush OREO cookies (I used my blender to crush the cookies).
MIX the cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended.
Step 2: SHAPE IT
Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 minutes.
Dip balls in melted chocolate, place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan.
Step 3: CUSTOMIZE IT
Customize it with your own ingredient additions or decorative skills.
I decorated mine in green and black colors and a sprinkling of silver sugar(optional).
