I had been interested in putting something together that children might be able to help make for the holidays and had seen some ideas for peanut butter balls. I wasn’t thrilled too much with just having powdered sugar with peanut butter and decided I would cut that with another ingredient and decided to use Oreos.
The concept is simple: crushed Oreos and mixed with peanut butter and sugar and shaped into balls which can then either be dipped into melted chocolate or rolled in cocoa.
They aren’t too sweet and retain some of the crunch that cookies have, while taking a place between the worlds of cookies and candies. I am certain kids will love these and be proud to have found a way to help with the holiday baking.
