Candy Corn OREO Cookie Balls
We love shopping at Walmart. It is close to the house and has almost everything we love. And of course they have OREOS! The aisles are clearly marked to make shopping easy. Find the cookie aisle and you will find OREOS.
What I used:
Vanilla Candy Coating- you can also use vanilla chips. I am lazy and love the microwave tray that comes with the candy coating.
What to do:
Add 1 package of OREOS (or 36 cookies) to a ziploc bag. Mash them up. I then poured them into a bowl to finish crushing. There are many ways to crush up the cookies. Find one you like and go for it.
Once the OREOS are crushed you are ready to move on to the next step.
I left my cream cheese out on the counter to soften up before I added it to the cookies.
Mix cream cheese and crushed cookies well. Then make little balls. I used a cookie scoop to help me but rolling them in your hands works great too.
I laid wax paper over a plate and placed the rolled cookie balls on it. Once I had them all ready, I placed them in the freezer.
Now for the fun part. This part does take some time but the end result is awesome, CANDY CORN OREO COOKIE BALLS!
Melt the candy coating and cover all the cookie balls. Place back on wax paper. Once they are completed let dry. Since it took me a few minutes to dip each one the cookie balls were dry and ready for the next coating.
Next melt more candy coating and add yellow food coloring. Now dip the end of the OREO ball into the yellow. I used a spoon to help a little. Place them back on the waxed paper.
Now for the final coating. Melt more candy coating and add red and yellow food coloring to it and mix. Now dip the very bottom of the Cookie Ball in the orange candy coating. Place back on wax paper. Once all are dipped place them in fridge for an hour. Last, serve to your family and friends. Or keep them for yourself, lol. I look forward to making these again.
