Oreo Cookie Balls + Play Up Dessert with Oreo Recipe Challenge & GIVEAWAY {round 2!}

Hey ya’ll! Can you believe Thanksgiving is practically here? Yowzers! I sort of am looking forward to the turkey coma….not gonna lie. Except I’m not sure how it’s going to work this year–because being pregnant is very weird. I physically can’t make myself eat more than my preschooler at any given moment. I try, but then I feel like my food is stabbing me from the inside. So, that’s the bad news. The good news is that I’m ravenously hungry exactly 1 hour later. So I’ll be having many-a-mini-feast this Thanksgiving dinner. And, I’m super excited.

So, onto the recipe. Do you remember this Spider Web Cookie Pizza from Oreo? You do? PERFECT! Do you remember that I gave away FIVE Oreo prize packs to a few of my diligent and wonderful readers too? Wonderful! Well, those wonderful folks at Oreo are at it again and want 5 more of you to enter to win a Thanksgiving themed Dessert Kit. What comes in one of these kits? Well, I shall show you:

You’ll get this pretty lookin’ thing in the mail….is the anticipation killing you?

First thing you’ll see is OREOS! Duh….was that a given? Ok, underneath the Oreos, you will find:

More Oreos, cute festive napkins and a table display, a recipe booklet, an ice cream scoop, a serving triangular thingy majig and the cutest little cake stand you ever did see. Pretty fun stuff, right? And I get to give away FIVE! That’s 5, people!

Here’s how this GIVEAWAY is going to work: Oreo wants five of you {yes, 5!!} to win one of these prize packs! Once our five winners are selected (at random), OREO will ship out your Play Up Dessert Kits. Each of you who wins a kit will then make one of the recipes included in the kit, photograph it and send it to me to share on my blog. From there, one of the five kit winners will be selected on November 28th to win an OREO Prize Package, valued up to $100.

If you would like to take part in this recipe challenge, please leave one {1} comment here on the blog and tell me you’d like to participate. The winners will be selected at random on the evening of November 21st and will only have 24 hours to respond via email before another person is chosen at random to participate. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN/WILL/WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS RECIPE CHALLENGE BEFORE ENTERING. Open to US residents only, void where prohibited. Good luck!
