Christmas mood is all around with the holiday being less than a month away! Now that Thanksgiving is over, we are in a full Christmas baking, decorating and shopping mode!
Let’s start with baking… or non-baking…
Today, the blog has been taking over by my baby sister to share our first Christmas treat of the season!
So I will step away, while she entertains you!
“Hello everyone, Cinderella and Jasmine here!
We’re two best friends living the sunshine state life. We go to the same school. When we’re not in school, we’re dancing our hearts out. When we’re not at the studio, we’re hanging out! We tend to try a new culinary experiment every time we “chill.” We’re not exactly “bakers,” so we wanted to find a tasty, easy-to-make treat! So we found a recipe for Oreo Bites. They’re a joyful, messy treat, that takes no more than an hour to an hour and a half to make (including the chill time), and don’t require the use of an oven!
I am spending this weekend with our “master baker” and wanted to share this quick chocolaty treat with her readers! This is my first blog experience, so be patient and nice!”
Peppermint Oreo Bites
- 1 pack of Peppermint Oreo cookies
- 1 8 oz package of cream cheese softened
- 3 3.5- oz Hershey's Peppermint chocolate bars
- Crush the Oreo cookies in the blender until all crushed.
- Mix the cream cheese and Oreo crumbs until smooth and even.
- Form about 1-inch balls and place them on a cutting board lined with parchment paper.
- Place them in the freezer for about an hour.
- When you are ready to take out the Oreo balls, melt the chocolate bars in the microwave-safe container on half the power. Start with one minutes (on half the power) and mix. Heat for an additional 30 seconds (again at half the power). If needed, keep heating and mixing for 30 second at a time until all melted. (Always on half the power.)
- Dip the cold Oreo balls in the melted chocolate and place back on the parchment paper. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

I can’t find Peppermint Oreos anywhere! Where do you find these or what is a good substitute?
The past 2 years I’ve had to use mint Oreos, the ones with the green icing and they’ve been great
Sorry for the late response your comment got lost in my email. You can do like Mary suggest and use mint Oreos.
Can you freeze this for a period of time and use them for gifts at Christmas? What I mean is I’m looking to bake a few treats and make little treat boxes to gift at Christmas! These look delicious and I’d love to include them but I want to make sure they’ll keep! Any opinions??
You can freeze these cookie bites, yes. You can also make these two treats that also can be frozen:
You can also freeze them before coating them in chocolate and then just coat with chocolate when ready.
When freezing these: after first preparing them, place them on the large cutting board and space them out. Freeze for 30-40 minutes and then, transfer the bites into a freezer zip-lock bag. You can keep them in the freezer bag, in the freezer, until ready to use. Thaw in the refrigerator, not on the counter 🙂
Hi! These look amazing! Just to clarity, you use just the cookie itself, with the middle filling removed, or the whole oreo, filling and all?
Thanks for sharing the yummy looking recipe!
