Easy Holiday Recipe: Peppermint Oreo Cookie Balls

Note: This Oreo Cookie Balls recipe is brought to you by Oreo & Yummly.

I have a thing for cake pops, but I can not make them for the life of me. So when I saw the recipe for Oreo Cookie Balls, I was so excited- they look like cake pops {well, without the stick} but there’s baking involved! Also, OREOS!

I decided to make some & just like I do with pretty much everything this time of year, I threw some peppermint on it. If you like peppermint, you have to try these- the flavor combination is perfect! They only take four ingredients &are the perfect quick and easy dessert to take to holiday parties, dinners or even cookie swaps!

There are so many variations you can do to change these up, too- you can add peppermint baking chips instead of candy canes, you can use the Cool Mint or Winter Red Cream flavored Oreos, or you can use another topping entirely like coconut or chocolate chips. They’re quick and easy to make, so you can even make an assortment!
