Kraft Kitchen Tips


    To easily coat cookie balls with melted chocolate, add cookie balls, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Then, use 2 forks to roll cookie balls in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove cookie balls with forks and allow excess chocolate to drip back into bowl before placing cookie balls on prepared baking sheet.


    Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.


    Pack these delicious cookie balls in small containers. Then, add a colourful bow and gift tag to each container and you've got the perfect holiday or hostess gift.

Ratings & Reviews



Everyone who tries these loved them. I would suggest usung a melonball scoop, as they were a bit messy to roll by hand. Topped mine with shredded coconut and graham crumbs as I forgot to set aside any for after I rolled the cookie balls in the chocolate.


Made these last christmas and again this year. People go crazy over them and have gotten so many compliments and requests for these. Easy and so delicious! To the person that gave the negative review a few down from this, obviously your friend must have done something very wrong to mess up the recipe, either they did not crush their cookies enough or did not use the correct amount of cookies (350 grams, thats a normal package PLUS a few extra) I don't have a food processor, so I put put the cookies in a zip-plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. Takes about 20 minutes to get fine crumbs. Mix that and the cream cheese with an electric mixer until the mixture is an even brown, roll into balls and put in fridge or freezer to cool. I use a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips and about 2 tablespoons of real butter warmed up in the microwave to dip the balls and put back in the fridge or freezer for an hour. I'm about to try another batch made with Chips Ahoy and milk choclate chips for a d


Rave reviews. I rolled the whole truffle in the crumbs...didn't just sprinkle. Now to try it with other sandwich cookies and white chocolate! The friends who tried them couldn't believe that they were homemade.


Easy to make and loved by all.


if you are a dark chocolate lover with a sweet tooth this is for you! i like it but more of a milk chocolate lover. we did enjoy it but found 1 or 2 was enough. very sweet.


hubby really liked these but I found them way too rich for me. I personally won't make them again


These were delicious. would definetly make again.


These cookie balls were amazing. They tasted so good because of the rich cream cheese i would definitely make them again


We made these at a cookie swap on the weekend, they are to die for. Certainly one I will make again and again.


I have been making these since you first put the recioe in your book - they are awesome and don't last very long!!! I usually have to make a double batch just to have enough. I prefer to use/melt milk chocolate chipits for dipping the balls and to make them festive, I sprinkle red and green sparkles on top. Great for any occasion!!


Very tasty - I just don't tell my family that it contains cream cheese.


I've made these a few times now for work and family events. They don't last long. So easy to make and are quite indulgent.


Great Christmas dessert! Just melts in your mouth!It's just like an expensive truffle. I sprinkled mine in green and red. Everyone wants more. I kept mine in the freezer but they didn't last long...


So good, and easy to make. I made two different kinds, chips ahoy cookies with white chocolate and oreo cooks with milk chocolate.. Everyone loved them, we were all fighting over who would get the last ones! I don't even like sweets, but these weren't too sweet, they were just right!


Everyone loved these at work when I made them for a Christmas treat.


My mother-in-law made this recipe for her new Christmas treat and it was a great success! The whole family loved them. She was so creative, she made two versions of the recipe, some with semi-sweet choc and some with milk choc. Now I am making them for the New Years' party!


Very easy to make. I used Red and green vanilla wafers instead of chocolate squares. I finely chopped the cookies with a blender after pounding them with the rolling pin in a zip lock doubled bag. Love this recipe and will definitely make again!


I tried it with the OReo cookies - I found it very very difficult to get the cookies finely crused, I even watched the TV show and they made it look very easy, but it was not, I ended up with chunky balls


so easy and very tasty. I added a few drop of peppermint extract and topped them off with crushed candy cane. Golden Oreo with rum extract are chilling in the fridge, going to coat them in white chocolate and top with coconut.


Absolutely delicious! Very easy to make.


I wanted to make something edible to give my group of friends for Christmas, so when I saw these in Kraft's "What's Cooking" magazine I figured I would give them a try! They were the easiest thing I have ever made, and probably one of the tastiest treats I have made too. My friends were raving about them, and everyone has asked me for the recipe! I will definitely be making more of these for Christmas parties this year and for many years to come!!


One word. DEADLY. These are soooo yummy, and super cheap to make, and everyone loves them.


These are delicious and easy. I'll definitely make them again.


I took a chance on making this for a Big Christmas Party Dec 10th. Everyone was going crazy trying to find out who brought them and where you could buy them... Comments like: "Oh My Word, these are to die for".. I will certainly keep this for Chritmas's to come......


a friend of mine made this recipe and brought these to work to share... they melted in your mouth... so delicious! Now that I have the recipe, I can make them myself!


These are sooo yummy. I made these today for a family didner on Saturday, I let a few people taste test them (along with some other baking) and everyone loved these the most. I made them with milk chocolate chips instead of bakers chocolate. Will def make again. Batter does get sticky.


Super simple! I substituted melting chocolate wafers with 1 tbsp. shortening for the bakers chocolate and they turned out great. Also, did a batch with toasted coconut and a bit of icing sugar..awesome!! I formed the balls then froze them, so easy to coat with the chocolate! I used a toothpick & fork ~ filled the toothpick hole with the remaining crumbs & toasted coconut so I knew what the flavor of the truffles were!


Awesome holiday treat - will make again for sure. So easy and so delicious!!


They sure do taste good, but are very expensive to make.


Taste awesome! I am going to try the same using golden Oreos and White chocolate as well. So easy and although the chocolate coating was a little tricky, the fork suggestion worked for me.


This was DELICIOUS! It was easy to make and tasted great. When I brought some in to work, my co-workers all wanted the recipe and wanted me to make them again!



These were easy to make and super yummy. I took some of the suggestions on the comment boards about making sure the cream cheese is super soft and keeping half the batch in the fridge when doing the chocolate coating - it really helped!



Easy recipe, inexpensive to make, no baking and tastes delicious. Will make again for sure


My 5-year old loved crushing the cookies with the rolling pin. She couldn't believe that she could get her hands dirty with the batter. She loved making the balls. It was hard to keep the batter out of her mouth. I would definitely make this again. We'll be making the peanut butter version tomorrow.
