Holiday Snowmen Oreo Cookie Balls!


Hey All!

I consider myself a good baker and cook and I try my best to make things spot on like I see them online. Not to toot my own horn but I think I’m pretty much a cake, cookie, and donut making pro. I love to decorate baked goods and my cousin is actually a pastry chef. I always get a kick out of “Nailed it” pins that show the actual recipe and then show how it came out. Well for me the most challenging thing to do is cake pops/cake balls and gingerbread houses. I don’t know what it is about them but I try and try and can not get them perfect. Does anyone have any tips on how to make them perfect when you’re dipping your cakeballs/cakepops? And getting a gingerbread house to stand is incredibly hard for me in my book. Any tips on that would be greatly appreciated as well.

I did come across these AMAZING Melting Snowman Cookie balls recipe thanks to NABSICO and I just wanted to try them and make them in my own way for the holidays as I though the family would enjoy it. I thought I would share the experience with you all.


I changed up the recipe slightly as I used holiday Oreos with the red filling and I also added sprinkles into my ball batter and I placed them on top of Oreos unlike it says in the recipe.


I first mixed up the dough for the balls ( 1 package of Cream cheese, Oreo Cookies smashed, and sprinkles) and rolled them up into balls and refrigerated them for 40 mins. You can put them in the freezer if you’d like them to go faster. I then placed my Oreos on some wax paper for the Snowmen to be placed on them. I love the designs on the Holiday themed Oreos. They are so cute!


I also got all my candy decorations and icing ready for the snowman.


I melted my Wilton candy melts in the white color and dipped my cookie balls into the melted chocolate and placed them on the Oreos.


I then decorated them with the candy for the faces which were Mini Milkies from Sugarfina for the eyes, a round orange pearl sprinkle I had, a mini Oreo cookie, and some Wilton black icing.


They obviously didn’t come out as perfect as they look on the NABISCO recipe, but they aren’t completely terrible or hideous like those seen on the nailed it Pinterest pics. They were pretty difficult to make and it wasn’t going to stop me from sharing my hard work. I think it was a good start to my first time attempting to make cake balls. I’m going to keep trying until I get them perfect because regardless of whether they are perfect or not, my family still enjoyed them!

Again any tips would be greatly appreciated! Regardless of how yours come out if you too try to make these, I’m sure you’ll still enjoy them as they are tasty!

Happy Holidays Everyone!
