Recipe Tips
  • How to Easily Dip the "Cookie Balls"
    For best results, remove the cookie ball squares from the refrigerator in small batches before dipping into the melted candy coating as directed.
  • Note
    The uncoated cream cheese squares can be stored in a freezer container up to 1 month. Let stand at room temperature about 10 min. before dipping the squares into the melted candy coating and decorating as directed.
  • Note
    If the melted candy coating becomes too thick to easily coat the cream cheese squares, add up to 2 tsp. oil to the melted candy coating to thin it to the desired dipping consistency.
