Day 8 of 25 Days-Peppermint-Oreo Cookie Balls

Peppermint-Oreo Cookie Balls
25 Days of Christmas cookies-Day 8! These pretty Christmas cookies require no baking and are absolutely wonderful. Rich little bites of peppermint-chocolate goodness. Put them in miniature muffin papers if you have them for a nice presentation. They are especially quick to make if you have a cuisinart to do the chopping and mixing. I melt the chocolate in the microwave at 50% power setting.
Recipe from Kraft, and introduced to us by assistant innkeeper Lauren.
6 candy canes, finely chopped (about 1/3 cup), divided
1. package (8 oz) of cream cheese, softened
36 Oreo cookies, finely crushed
4 packages (4 oz. each) Baker's semi-sweet chocolate, broken into pieces and melted
Reserve 1 Tbsp. chopped candy. Mix remaining candy with cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended.
Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 minutes. Dip balls in melted chocolate ( 2 forks work great for rolling them in chocolate). Place balls on waxed paper-covered rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with reserved candy.
Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
