Holiday Cookie Exchange

Oreo Cookie Balls! A New Holiday Treat! The Holidays are Coming!

It’s time for a party!  A cookie party!  Yum.

A bunch of bloggers are kicking off the holiday season in style with a cookie exchange!  Jz from A Reluctant Bitch encouraged us to post our favorite holiday cookie recipe today.

I adore cookies!  Cookie Monster is my favorite Sesame Street puppet.  Om nom nom.  I am not much of a baker, but I used to help my mom bake hundreds of cookies for church events – from lebkuchen that had to be started a month ahead of time, to sugar cookies, currant bars, icebox cookies, shortbreads, thumbprints with raspberry jam, molasses cookies, spritz, ginger bread men, and something she called “snowballs.”  See my cookie post from last year about those!  Ever since I’ve been hooked on eating balls of all kinds!  And I know how to use the internet, so I searched for “holiday balls cookies” and up came this amazing recipe from the nifty Noreen!  With only four ingredients!  I could do that!  Balls made of cookies!  Yum!  And there’s a video!

Here’s the recipe   Enjoy!
  • 1 chocolate fudge cake mix prepared according to package directions.  Totally cooled.
  • 1 Cup buttercream or purchased vanilla or cream cheese frosting
  • 1 teaspoon good quality vanilla extract
  • 2 cups crushed Oreo cookies
      For Coating
  • 2 cups crushed Oreo cookies

Step by Step Instructions
1) Combine the frosting and vanilla extract in mixer bowl and beat until incorporated.
2) Crumble cake into mixing bowl and blend until it forms a dough.
3) Add in crushed Oreos and blend well.
4) Roll mixture into 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet.
5) Roll each cookie ball into the crushed Oreos to coat completely
6) Place into refrigerator for at least 1 hour to allow chocolate to set.
7) Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.  If you are making these in advance, you may freeze them for up to 3 months.

Serve and enjoy!  Happy Holidays Dear Readers!

    I’m trying very hard to be mature and rise above all the ball puns.
    It’s making my fingers cramp…

    These look both easy and decadent – excellent qualities in a cookie.
