 Crescents are so versatile and provide a great starting point for so many recipes. Todays recipe was inspired buy a cake-pop, how so you may ask. One day one of our girls asked if we can make cake-pops as we usually make them, however we did not have al the ingredients, instead we had crescent rolls.


Crescent Oreo Balls

When we decided to do these pops we had no idea as to how they would turn out, however our girls from the beginning were very excited and could not wait to get started. They turned out very good and since then we have made them a couple of times and each time we say that next time we need to make more.

These are crescent balls filled with a tasty mixture of cookies and cream, some even have a surprise marshmallow in the center.

Learning Time


Fun educational activities or questions to do with little ones while preparing this recipe.

  • Have your child help you gather the ingredients and count how many items will you be using for this recipe.
  • Considering this recipe include no liquid ingredients (except milk for the glazing), if you have already talked to your child about the states of the matter ask you child to name the states of the matter present prior to getting the milk. Afterwards ask again or make reference to it pointing the liquid out.
  • Each ingredient comes or is of a specific shape and color (Oreos come in a square container, and yet each Oreo is round, and the other ingredients are each different) have your child tell you how many of each shape.
  • Ask you child to count the Oreos and insert them into the food processor, then after adding the cream cheese have him/her pulse a certain number of times (how many depends on you food processor).
  • Talk to your child about measurements and show how you will be using a teaspoon, tablespoon, cup of this or that.
  • Use as many things or ideas to keep that little sponge mind absorbing and learning more and more.
Little ones can always learn something new, help them along the way.

As usual our girls not only help in the process, but they are our offical taste testers and they love these Oreo Balls
