No bake truffles (also called Christmas Oreo balls) were the other popular option. These combine finely ground Oreos mixed with cream cheese and then dipped in candy coating or melted white or dark chocolate. Lots of options for cute themed truffles for Christmas as well!
Aside from the big winners, adding Oreo cookies to baked goods like cookies, cakes and brownies were easy to find. Crushed Oreos in holiday bark recipes were Christmas treats to make.
