Easter Treats

With Easter this weekend and Spring in the air, I was naturally searching my Pinterest for the perfect spring treats and I think I hit the jackpot! Especially these cute chick cupcakes! If you need an easy last minute dessert recipe check out these festive little guys!

Peeps Oreo Balls

I was at the store a few days ago and these little beauties caught my eye! Truthfully, I’m not the biggest chocolate fan so golden Oreos are my fav! My brother can cook three things: a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, macaroni and cheese, and Oreo balls. I knew if he could master Oreo balls I could too. I tried these guys out for a little twist on an easy classic! I must say they were delightful! Anddddd they only were two ingredients! SO simple!

Ingredients:

  • Package of Oreos
  • Half block (4 oz.) cream cheese

 

Recipe:

  • Separate the cookie and icing. Place Oreo cookie pieces in a ziplock baggie and the icing in a microwave safe bowl.
  • Using a rolling pin, mash the cookies until they form small crumbs.
  • With an electric mixer, beat the crumbs and cream cheese until a soft dough forms. (** I added a few sprinkles to the dough too!)
  • Using your hands roll dough into ping pong sized balls. Freeze for 10-15 minutes.
  • On a defrost setting, microwave the icing in the bowl, stirring occasionally, until melted.
  • Dip the frozen Oreo balls into the melted icing.
  • Add sprinkles for extra pizzazz!
