  • Mix cream cheese and 2 cups gingersnap crumbs until blended.
  • Shape into 30 (1-inch) balls; place in single layer in shallow pan. Freeze 10 min.
  • Dip cookie balls in chocolate, turning to completely coat each ball; place in single layer in shallow parchment paper-lined pan. Sprinkle with remaining gingersnap crumbs.
  • Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Keep refrigerated.

How to Melt Chocolate

Place chocolate in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 2-1/2 min. or until chocolate is completely melted, stirring every 30 sec.

How to Easily Dip Cookie Balls

To easily coat cookie balls with the melted chocolate, add cookie balls, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2 forks to roll cookie balls in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove cookie balls with forks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Place cookie balls in prepared pan; let stand until firm.


If any melted chocolate remains after all balls are coated, store in tightly covered container at room temperature until ready to use for another use.

How to Store

Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
