Melting Snowmen Cookie Balls


Almost too cute to eat. Almost. The 40-minute prep time will pay off when you see these treats melt away.

What You Need

  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) brick cream cheese, softened
  • 36 OREO Cookies, finely crushed
  • 16 oz. vanilla candy wafers, melted
  • 48 Mini OREO Bite Size Cookies
  • decorations: decorating icing or gel; multi-colored sprinkles


  1. Mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs until well blended.
  2. Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls; place in single layer in shallow pan. Refrigerate 20 min. Dip balls in melted coating; place in shallow waxed paper-lined pan, allowing excess coating to pool at bottom of each ball. Decorate with remaining ingredients as shown in photo.
  3. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Keep refrigerated.

If coating becomes too thick, add up to 2 tsp. shortening to each 16 oz. of candy wafers.
