Chocolate Covered Cookies 'n Cream Cheese Recipe
Here's the recipe I followed for the Chocolate Cookie Cream Cheese Balls, click HERE. I used Dollar Tree cookies so my measurements were a bit off since they came in 13 oz. packages instead of the 8 oz. Oreo packages. This must have been the reason I had to keep adding cream cheese to make the cookie crumbs stick together. Also, I couldn't get the cream cheese to mix well with the cookies in the first place, so I just used my hands (cleaned and GERM-Xed, of course!!) instead of the hand mixer. Not sure how other people do it. Still, they turned out YUMMY Yum Yum. I'm sure I'll make them again, this time with a bit more time on my hands! In this picture here, you can see that I dumped a small bag of Cherry Sour Candy to add some color (and also because it was the only place I could find to put the candy since I was running around like a madwoman that day ;-)
Oh, how it irks me that the tag on the tray is visible! Meant to remove it of course...
I also whipped up a pasta dish made with "turtle shells," mixed with a bit of white Alfredo sauce and seasoned tomatoes.
And although there is no picture available, I also made "cotton candy cones," which were simply cotton candy stuffed inside both waffle and cake cones. It was like sweet ice cream without the mess!
And we also had chocolate TURTLES, a wrapped piece of chocolate with nuts and caramel. Yummy.
