Oreo Ball Recipe

Oreo ball ingredients
Here’s what you need:
  • - Package of Oreo cookies (we like the Target brand just fine) – the mint ones are especially good in this!
  • - 8 oz cream cheese (any brand/fat – we like the Target brand for this too)
  • - Vanilla or Almond Bark
  • - Sprinkles (or crushed nuts, chocolate, etc)

Put the sandwich cookies in a Ziploc bag & let your kiddos go nuts smushing them up! (I let them use the smooth side of my meat mallet)
Kids love helping make oreo ball cookies in the kitchen
Add 8oz cream cheese to bag & squish together until well blended
