I have been enjoying OREO Cookies for decades, and by creating Holiday OREO Cookie Balls over the last few years I have found a way to bring the same amazing taste into a dessert that is both fun and creative. While hosting a holiday party I usually have a theme going on, be it winter wonderland with blue and whites, traditional Christmas with red and green, or something more unique like sparkling stars (I used silver and gold that year). Desserts are the easiest food item to integrate a holiday theme, as they look even more appetizing with bright colors. It’s a great way to make your party stand out. You can make extras and send guests home with dessert gift-bags¸(simple long plastic bags with a nice bow will do). I like to make holiday dessert items that are liked by everyone at the party, which is not always easy (mince pie was not a hit at the kids table!). One dessert item that seems to transcend generations are OREO Cookie Balls, they’re a hit for young and old alike. Each year I use the same fabulous recipe for the inside of the cookie balls, and plan different colors and flavors for the outside. Frosting, sprinkles and smashed candy cane pieces are easy go-to items, but I recommend getting those creative juices going! For more holiday OREO Cookie balls recipes, check out this link

Traditional OREO Cookie Taste

I love the taste of OREO Cookies, especially the the mix of the crisp cookie and soft center. I remember growing up twisting the two apart carefully and eating the center first, while my sister quickly devoured them together. I still love the traditional OREO Cookie taste, and as an adult have found it to be a hit in even upscale desserts like cheesecake or these OREO Cookie Balls.

A DIY Dessert Involving Kids

One other reason why this dessert is one I keep going back to is that my kids love making OREO Cookie Balls. Rolling out the balls is really fun for them, and designing the outside is a great way for kids to use creativity. My younger child has a “messy approach” to design but hers actually come out the best sometimes as they have a Jackson Pollock appeal to them! This is also an easier dessert and won’t collapse on them like a finicky cake.
