Cookie Exchange

I am hosting my first Cookie Exchange for the holidays and i am very excited! Since this is my first time i was wondering if anyone has idea's for a cookie exchange they have done? Packaging for the cookies, decor...

One cookie i really love is the oreo truffle, they are really yummy & cute too!

  • 1 bag Oreo cookies, crushed
  • 1, 8 oz. pkg cream cheese, softened
  • 1- 20 oz. chocolate or white chocoltate almond bark


     * Crush Oreo's and mix with cream cheese.
     * Roll into 1 inch balls. Put them on a wax papered lined cookie sheet and freeze for about 20 minutes   while you melt the chocolate.

     * Melt the chocolate in the microwave for about 1 minute.You might need to microwave more but do for about 20 seconds each time, so you don't scorch the chocolate. Be sure to watch and stir.

     * When fully melted get the truffles out of the freezer.

     * Dip them with a fork and put on a wax paper-lined cookie sheet and let harden.You can add decorations or sprinkles after each one is dipped if you want!

     * When they are hard, place truffles in a covered container and keep in the refrigerator.

I hope you enjoy them!
