  • 8 oz. cream cheese (reduced fat or regular, softened to room temperature, do not use fat free)
  • 36 sandwich cookies (chocolate vanilla cream, finely crushed, about one 14.3 ounce package)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract (pure)
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 16 oz. baking chocolate (white, or candy melts, do not use chocolate chips, as they contain stabilizers and will not melt as smoothly)
  • 2 tsp. coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup peppermint candy (finely crushed, or candy canes)
  • Did you make this?

    1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
    2. Use a KitchenAid® Stand Mixer fitted with the flat beater to beat the cream cheese on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the crushed sandwich cookies, peppermint extract, and salt. Beat until fully incorporated so that any streaks of cream cheese disappear, about 2-3 minutes.
    3. With a small cookie scoop or spoon, portion the dough into balls of desired size. Arrange the rolled balls on the prepared baking sheet. Place the baking sheet into the freezer for 10 minutes to allow the balls to set.

    The cookies were tasty but way too much work. When putting the chocolate and sprinkles on, I was reminded of the I Love Lucy episode where Lucy and Ethel were working in the candy of the funniest episodes ever as the candy kept escaping from them.

    These always look easier than they are. Making the balls itself are no problem- it’s always the melting and dipping chocolate that’s the real pain. It’s honestly easier just baking cookies rather than these.
