Candy Cane Oreo Balls

WOW!  Candy Cane Oreo Balls are absolutely amazing!  My husband loves them so much that he says, “they are life-changing”!  Since the  Pumpkin Pie Pops that I made on Halloween were so incredible and such a huge hit at a party, I thought it would be fun to try a Christmas version.  Awhile ago, my friend made some Oreo Balls using regular oreos and shared some with our family.  They were wonderful and my husband wanted me to make a batch, immediately!  When I saw the Candy Cane Oreos at Target, my first thought was to make this incredible dessert! Aubrey and I just hosted our Letters to Santa Party on Sunday and it was the perfect occasion for Candy Cane Oreo Balls!  They were super easy to make and were quite the crowd pleaser!  One thing to note is that the Candy Cane Oreos bag is a little smaller than the regular Oreos, so I added some regular Oreos, and then some with only the cookie part (not the frosting).  I did not count the number of cookies that I added, but I continued to check the consistency in the food processor and added more when needed.  You should head on over to Target today and grab a bag of Candy Cane Oreos because this dessert is one you want to try.
