Everyone I work with are CRAZY for my cookie/cake balls. They just love them. I get asked everyday to PLEASE,PLEASE, PLEASE make them. Sooo, being the nicest co-worker on the face of the earth, I did.
This time around I made them with Chips Ahoy cookies. I scored an awesome deal on them at the grocery store and needed a way to use up my supply.
They turned out great and were gone in no time flat. I got lots of thank yous, at least I think they were saying thank you, it was hard to tell with their mouths full !!
1 pkg. Chips Ahoy
4 oz Cream Cheese-Room Temp
Chocolate Almond Bark (about 5 blocks)
Crush Chips Ahoy into fine crumbs (reserving a couple teaspoons full for garnish) and mix with cream cheese. I used my food processor, but a zip bag and a rolling pin work well also.
Form into small walnut sizes balls and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. I used my small sized cookie dough scoop.
Place in freezer for 15 min or fridge for about an hour
Melt chocolate slowly in the microwave, stiring often. Dip each ball making sure to shake off extra chocolate so you don't have a lot of chocolate pool at the base of each ball while setting. Place on wax paper to set.
Sprinkle the reserved cookie crumbs on each ball.
Keep cookie balls refrigerated in an airtight container.
