I got this recipe from the Philadelphia Cream Cheese web site last year at Christmas. It was a HUGE hit with everyone. Very easy & so yummy!!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 candy canes (finely chopped-about 1/3 cup-& divided)
  • 1 (8 ounce) package Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
  • 36 Oreo cookies, finely crushed
  • 16 ounces baker's semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted

Directions

  1. RESERVE 1 tablespoons chopped candy. Mix remaining candy with cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended.
  2. SHAPE into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 minute Dip balls in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with reserved candy.
  3. REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.
  4. TIPS FOR PREPARATION:.
  5. SIZE WISE: These cookie balls have their own-built in portion control and can be enjoyed on occasion but remember to keep tabs on portions.
  6. HOW TO EASILY DIP COOKIE BALLS IN CHOCOLATE: To easily coat cookie balls with the melted chocolate, add balls, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2 forks to roll balls in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove balls with forks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Place balls on prepared baking sheet; let stand until chocolate coating is firm.
  7. HOW TO STORE: Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
