This post brought to you by Great Clubs. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Food Family & Finds. When it comes to gift giving, I always find it's the men in my life that are the hardest to shop for. My dad was always picky with no real wants or needs and my husband is even more mysterious.

Andes Mints OREO Cookie Balls Recipe

Andes Mints OREO Cookie Balls Recipe

Lately my kids have been absolutely obsessed over cookie balls. They're like a cake pop only way more delicious because they're made with OREO cookies.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine. It was about two weeks ago when the catalogs starting arriving in our mailbox.

It didn't take long before each of our three children had a Christmas wish list that was a mile long. Among all of the wish list items were some of the … [Read more...]
