I love homemade sweets, but don’t always want (or have the time) to turn on the oven to get my fix. I was over the moon when I bit into one of these and immediately loved the smooth texture, and unique sweet taste. Even better, the recipe can be made over and over again with near limitless variations (by near limitless, I mean whatever cookies are in the cookie aisle)!

Check out the recipe below, because they are the perfect treat to whip up in a hurry.

Ingredients:

1 box Chips Ahoy cookies

8oz Cream Cheese (Softened)

1 bag either semi-sweet or white chocolate chips

What You’ll Need:

Medium mixing bowl

Large sturdy spoon – for mixing/stirring

Blender or large freezer bag

Small microwave safe bowl

Baking sheet

Foil or wax paper

First – Crush those cookies! The first time I made these bites I poured all the cookies into a freezer bag and crushed them using a wooden spoon. This yielded a bit more texture in the final product, which was still yummy. To get a super smooth consistency you should opt to use a blender if you’ve got one.

After you’ve finely crushed the cookies, transfer them into the medium mixing bowl and stir in the cream cheese. I took the easy way out and microwaved the cream cheese so it would easily glide through the cookie crumbs.

Make sure to mix everything until it’s well incorporated and there are no streaks of cream cheese. Things may look a little iffy at this point, but stick with it, the end result looks way better than what’s going on it that bowl right now.

Now pop the whole mixture into the freezer to firm up. It needs to be able to be formed into balls. I usually give it at least a half hour.

When you’ve got a firm enough consistency, go ahead and line your baking sheet (I had to use foil because I was out of wax paper, but either will work fine), and start rolling the mixture into whatever size “bites” you want. After your done the whole tray needs to be put in the freezer until they are solid (about an hour). IMG_6429

When the bites are solid take them out and get ready to drench them in chocolate. Pour chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat them in the microwave until it’s smooth and melty. It’s best to heat in intervals, mixing the chocolate as you go to ensure you don’t over do it. A double broiler works really well for this step if you’ve got one.

To save time, I choose to spoon the chocolate onto each bite rather than dip them. I got extra fancy and used both white and regular chocolate;)

Let the chocolate solidify, and then you can transfer them to whatever container you choose. That’s it! Super easy. Make sure to store the finished product in the refrigerator, or in the freezer for a cold and chewy delight.
