  • 6 candy canes, finely chopped (about 1/3 cup) and divided
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 26 chocolate sandwich cookies, such as Oreos, finely crushed
  • 4 packages (4 ounces each) semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted


Mix all but 1 tablespoon of the crushed candy canes with the cream cheese and cookie crumbs until well blended. Shape the dough into 48 1-inch balls. Freeze the cookie balls for 10 minutes. Then, dip the cookie balls into the melted chocolate and place them in a single layer in a shallow, waxed paper-lined pan. Sprinkle with the reserved candy and refrigerate 1 hour or more, until firm.

Peppermint Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peppermint Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
