My Homemade Circus Animal Cookie Balls

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.
