Apple Shaped Oreo Cookie Balls Recipe
- 36 Oreo cookies
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 12 oz red candy melts
- green M&Ms
- pretzel sticks, broken into 1/4" pieces
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Place oreos in a stand mixer with paddle attachment.
- Mix at low speed until all of the oreos are crushed into a fine oreo crumble.

- Place the balls on the prepared baking sheet and freeze for 1 hour to chill.
- Melt the red candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 15 to 30 second intervals, checking and stirring each time so that the candy melts don't burn.
