Coated Cookie Drops

Sara at make music from your heart is hosting a Christmas cookie recipe exchange! I'm looking forward to seeing what treats are shared, and hopefully, I can try a few out on my family and friends this year.
Here's my contribution:

Coated Cookie Drops


1 pkg (20 oz) oreos
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
@ 24-30 oz candy coating, coarsely chopped for dipping (I use chocolate)
1 or 2 pkg of candy coating, coarsely chopped for drizzle (I use red/green)

Place the cookies in a food processor; cover and process until finely crushed. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and crushed cookies until blended. Roll into 3/4-in. balls. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

In a small saucepan over low heat, melt candy coating for dipping, stirring until smooth; dip the balls to completely coat. Place on waxed paper until hardened.

Melt and drizzle remainder candy coating over balls. Store in the refrigerator.

Yield: about 7-1/2 dozen.

Working together...a favorite Christmas baking tradition!

The final product! Maybe not too tidy done our way, but very tasty!

Looks like the family had fun decorating the cookies! They probably had more fun eating them.

Oh! Sweet looking cookies! My oldest daughter would love these (she's 28, still loves my cookies!). Blessings, Heidi

I like those - they remind me of Christmas tree ornaments :). I'm going to have to try those soon. Bought some Oreos to make cookies and cream fudge but I think they have just been repurposed!
