I made these for a friend's birthday this weekend since she has a history of loving Circus Animal Cookies. They were super easy to make, very similar to the Oreo Balls or Cake Pops.
First I threw 3/4 of the cookies into a food processor until they were very finely chopped. I added about half a brick of cream cheese and mixed that until it was dough-like. Then I rolled them into evenly sized balls and stuck them in the fridge for about an hour.
Using pink candy melts, I fully covered each ball and topped them with matching nonpareils.
I used the remaining cookies as a garnish.
I put everything in this cute jar which gave it a very rustic homemade look.
