Ugly Sweater OREO Cookie Balls
Prep Time 25 minutes
chill 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 24 cookie balls
- 1 (8 oz.) brick cream cheese softened
- 36 OREO Cookies Chocolate finely crushed about 3 cups
- 16 oz. white baking chocolate melted
- red and green candy colors
- holiday sprinkles
Mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs until incorporated.
Using a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop cookie balls into your hand.
Roll the cookie balls between your two palms until smooth.
Flatten the ball out and shape it into a thick tombstone shape. The top of the sweater will be rounded, the sides flat and the bottom flat.
Cut small squares out of the bottom corners of the cookie ball. The arched side is the top of the sweater.
Use a toothpick to tidy up the edges that were just cut.
Line the toothpick straight up and down from the edge of the small corner that was just cut. Press down to form the sleeve and leave a deep indentation.
Freeze 10 minutes for a firm cookie ball to dip and if you want the melted chocolate coating to harden quickly.
Dip balls in melted chocolate; Tap off the excess chocolate and place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan.
Color a small amount of the melted chocolate red and green using candy colors.
Add the colored chocolate in a sandwich bag and cut a small hole in one of the corners of the bag.
Stripe the sweaters with the colored candy melts and add sprinkles.
For a zig-zag look, drag your toothpick up and down the wet chocolate that has been striped with colored chocolate.
To make tangled lights, let the colored chocolate cool slightly so it holds its shape. Pipe it in the center of the sweater and add nonpareils to it.
Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.
