Total time1hr 40min
ServingsMakes 40 servings, 1 cookie ball each.
  • 6 oz. brick cream cheese, softened
  • 30 OREO Mint Creme Cookies, finely crushed
  • 16 oz. white candy coating wafers, melted
  • 10 small gumdrops, each cut crosswise into 4 pieces
  • 2 multi-colored sour belts (5 inches long), each cut into 20 (1x1/8-inch) strips
  • ⅓ cup decorations (colored sugars, colored sprinkles and assorted small candies)
  • Mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended; shape into 40 (1-inch) balls. Place on waxed paper-covered rimmed baking sheet. Freeze 10 min.
  • Dip cookie balls in melted candy coating, turning to evenly coat each ball with candy coating. Return to baking sheet.
  • Cut small slit in top of each gumdrop piece. Bend 1 sour belt strip in half to form loop; insert both ends of loop into top of 1 gumdrop piece, then press gumdrop into top of 1 cookie ball to secure. Repeat with remaining gumdrop pieces, sour belt strips and cookie balls.
  • Add decorations as desired to resemble holiday ornaments.
  • Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.  Keep refrigerated.
Recipe Tips
  • Size Wise
    Take the time to savor the flavor of these festive cookie balls that can be included in a balanced diet on occasion.
  • Variation
    Prepare using assorted colors of coating wafers. Or, substitute melted white or semi-sweet baking chocolate for the melted candy coating wafers.
  • How to Easily Coat the Cookie Balls
    To easily coat the cookie balls with the melted candy coating wafers, add balls, in batches, to bowl of melted wafers. Use 2 forks to roll balls until evenly coated. Remove balls with forks, letting excess candy coating drip back into bowl. Place balls in prepared pan; let stand until coating is firm.
