Pumpkin Spice Cookie Balls

The rush of the holidays is behind us and we’re looking towards the new year. Resolutions of health and organization fill the lines of fresh notebooks and the possibilities of a clean slate beckon us from the clutter and dust of the previous year. The ornaments have been carefully tucked away, the elf has crept away from his self to plot for 11 months and it’s nearly time to say goodbye to all things Pumpkin Spice. One would think I’d be glad to see it go, but I end up thinking “gah I love this and I’ll miss it so much during the upcoming months I better stock up and enjoy it, new diet be damned!”

I know I’ve said before how Oreos are my weakness and that Oreos are like little balls of crack happiness. Their sunshiney golden counterparts have always left a little something to be desired in my opinion, yet Bean loves them and we often find ourselves with a pack in the cupboard. The kids aren’t prejudice when it comes to their sandwich cookies. As it turns out the Golden Oreos are the perfect partner to the pumpkin spice cream cheese that we love. See where I’m going with this? Enter my super easy 3 ingredient Pumpkin Spice Cookies Balls (or truffles if it makes you feel fancy):

Put the cookies and the cream cheese in a food processor and pulse until combined. Attempt to keep your fingers out of it and let it chill for about an hour.

Use a scoop or spoon to make little balls and place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Apparently it’s time to use the Miracle Cleaner on our baking sheet. DSCN1741

After all the little balls are made let them chill again for about 15 minutes. It was freezing outside the day we did this so I just set them on the porch. While they are setting up again melt the chips. I use the microwave and heat about 30 minutes at a time then stir. I also add a bit of coconut oil to keep the shell shiny after dipping.

Dip the balls then decorate them with sprinkles. I had intended to use our shimmer dust, but couldn’t seem to find it. I’m sure it’s dumped in someone’s closet somewhere.DSCN1744
