Holiday Oreo Cookie Snowballs

I made this recipe over the weekend, and was shocked at how easy it was! They came out delicious too, and everyone has really enjoyed them. I also made some cinnamon & sugar roasted pecans & almonds this weekend as well - and I gotta say, nothing is funnier than saying "would you like a ball or a nut?"

Hehe! Yes, I'm a child.

Holiday Oreo Cookie Snowballs
- 1 package of oreo cookies
- 1 package of cream cheese

- 1 package of white chocolate almond bark (the recipe called for 8oz, but I used much more than that because I kept messing up the dipping process. You can find this in the baking aisle of the grocery store)

- red & green sprinkles

Pulse cookies in a food processor until they're all crumbles.
Add cream cheese and pulse until it forms a dough.

Refrigerate for 15 mins.

Roll the dough into bite-sized balls, and refrigerate again on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper for another 15 mins (trust me, this step helps!)

Microwave the almond bark in a bowl (start with low heat), and stir until smooth.
I had trouble with the "dipping" process, but after a few different attempts realized that the best way to do this would be to drop each ball into the chocolate, flop it over a few times with a spoon, then scoop it out and set each back onto the wax paper.

Get the sprinkles on top before the chocolate hardens, then pop 'em in the fridge! YUM!
