When the holidays arrive, everyone enjoys homemade baked goodies. I always enjoy making platters of cookies, candy, breads, cakes and pies to bring to Christmas parties for family, friends, neighbors or a Cookie Exchange with co-workers. However, ingredients for baking from scratch can still be expensive and put a dent in the family budget.

No Bake Christmas Cookies

This year I've been shopping at Aldi, and decided to give their products a try to cut down on the grocery bill. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Aldis carried everything I needed to make Oreo Truffles Balls on my baking list this year, including peppermint sandwich cookies as well as mini-chocolate chips (for another recipe I'll be posting for Chocolate Cherry Cake.) They even had mini crockpots, glass pie plates and take-along containers!

In the meantime, there's still plenty of time to make these no bake Christmas cookies, even if you don't start your baking until the night before Christmas - and you still have quite a bit of time to make these Oreo Truffle Balls bonbons ahead for New Year's Eve or New Year's Day parties!

Sandwich Oreo Truffle Balls

1 (18 oz.) package of Oreo Sandwich-type cookies (regular size, 3 rows of cookies)
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese block
4 oz white, milk, or dark chocolate bark

Add Oreo sandwich cookies to food processor and blend until fine.
Add cream cheese to Oreo sandwich cookie crumbs and blend until dough-like.
Chill mixture for 15 minutes.
Roll into bite-size balls.
Chill balls in refrigerator for 15 minutes
Melt chocolate bark in microwave according to package directions. Dip chilled Oreo sandwich cookie balls in melted chocolate using a toothpick so chocolate can "drip off".
Set covered cookie balls onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper and let set approximately 30 minutes. If using jimmies, shots, sprinkles or decorative sugars do so before chocolate sets.
