OREO-Cherry Bomb Cookie Balls


1 pkg. (8 oz) brick cream cheese, softened

36 OREO Cookies, finely crushed

60 maraschino cherries with stems, patted dry

4 pkg. (4 oz. each) white baking chocolate, melted

2 Tbsp. multi-colored sprinkles (red, white and blue)


Mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended.

Shape into 60 (3/4 inch) balls, using about 1 tsp. cream cheese mixture for each ball; press to flatten. Top each with 1 cherry, stem side up; wrap cream cheese mixture around cherry to completely enclose cherry. Place in shallow pan. Freeze 10 min.

Cover rimmed baking sheet with waxed paper. Hold cherry stems to dip cookie balls, 1 at a time, into melted chocolate, turning to completely coat all sides of each ball with chocolate. Place on prepared baking sheet. Decorate as shown in photo.

Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Keep refrigerated.
