Coated Cookie Drops

"It's a good thing these no-bake drops are simple, because I like to serve them throughout the year," writes Amanda Reid of Oakville, Iowa. "Their moist, cake-like center and sweet coating satisfy the chocolate lover in everyone. I'm asked for the recipe time and time again."

    I made this for the chocolate lovers (myself included) for Christmas and none of us liked them so this recipe is not a keeper!

    These are a cookie exchange staple at my house, people request them every year. We also call them "oreo balls". Although I make many Xmas candies these are definitely the easiest ones by far! Try them, you won't be disapointed.

    I normally shy away from recipes that use prepared ingredients, but these could accompany me to the fabled 'desert island'!

    I made these for our son's wedding reception this year. I added green food color to half the white coating and red food color to the other half white coating before I dipped the the balls. Green & pink polka dots were the print of the flower girl dresses!!! The 'oreo balls'(as we call them) were a BIG hit.

    A lady made these for the cookie exchange last year. They were this hit of the party!
