The holidays are my absolute favorite time of year. And until I was married, I never needed to travel anywhere during them. Most of my family lives here in northeast Ohio and we rotate houses each year. But now that we live in Georgia and travel to Ohio for Thanksgiving and Christmas, things are a lot different.
Crush Oreos (leave a few for garnish).
Mix crushed Oreos with block of softened cream cheese.
Roll into small balls and place on cooking sheet in freezer for 10 minutes.
Melt bowl of chocolate chips.
Dip frozen balls in chocolate.
Garnish with crushed Oreos, sprinkles, candy canes, etc.
And that’s it! I make these all of the time and I always experiment. I’ve used milk chocolate, semi-sweet, dark chocolate, and white chocolate. I haven’t yet, but there are so many flavors of Oreos and I would love to experiment with the mint, candy cane, etc. They’re easy, delicious, everyone will think they took way more time and effort than they did 😉
As a military family, we understand the importance of family and spending time together. We are often forced to spend a lot of time apart and truly appreciate the time we do get to spend together. I absolutely love that Marie Callender’s has also started the Comforts from Home Project; any purchase with a specially marked box and code provides a donation to a USO and USO2GO.
