We’re coming up on bridal shower time, along with baby showers, graduations, proms, garden parties…Does anyone outside of the South do garden parties? LOL Anyway, these pretty little treats caught my eye because they look totally professional and seem easy to make. Plus…the flavors are all my favorites. There are some tips listed on the recipe page at Kraft, so if you decide to try these treats, click through to get the 4-1-1 to making them easier.

LEMON BLOSSOM OREO COOKIE BALLS

Planning a bridal or baby shower? Serve these dainty, lemony bite-size treats with crushed Golden OREO Cookies as the creamy, delicious filling.

What You Need
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 pkg. (14.3 oz.) Golden OREO Cookies, finely crushed
1 tsp. lemon zest
3 pkg. (4 oz. each) BAKER’S White Chocolate, broken into pieces, melted
1 Tbsp. assorted decorating icings
40 white nonpareils (about 1/2 tsp.)

Make It
Mix cream cheese, cookie crumbs and zest until blended.

Shape into 40 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 min. Dip balls in melted chocolate; place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan. Fit tubes of icings with star tip; use to pipe small flower onto top of each ball. Gently press nonpareil into center of each.

Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.

For tips (especially about the chocolate dipping) and nutritional info, go to KRAFT RECIPES. And now I have to write a scene with Hannah, from the Moonstruck books, trying to make these. Because…well, those of you who love Hannah know why!! :LOL: Let me know if any of you try these!
