If you’re a fan Oreo Truffles, you will LOVE this Easy Peppermint Oreo balls recipe! They are a minty twist on a classic.
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.
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!
