Peppermint Oreo Truffles - These are minty twist on an easy cookie recipe

For quite a few years now, Oreo Truffles have made it onto my holiday baking list.  They are always a hit when I take them to cookie exchange parties and they are ALWAYS the first to be gobbled up when I put out a cookie platter.

They are just so….what’s the word I’m looking for?  Poppable!   Yep, they’re totally poppable. Add a few Peppermint Hot Chocolate Bombs to the mix and you will have an instant party.

Which, come to think of it, is a blessing and a curse.  The great part is, they are easy to eat.  The bad part is you can easily loose count of how many you’ve popped because they are just so darn good!

I love all kinds of Oreo Truffles.  And, these Peppermint ones are moving to the top of my favorite list!

I dare you to see if you can eat just one!

  1. What does this mean? 1 oz pkg. brick cream cheese – softened, 8 Does it mean 8 ounces total? And I don’t understand what the “about 3” means after this ingredient. 36 cups OREO Cookies – finely crushed (about 3 )
