YUMMY COOKIE CANDIES

LEMON GIRL SCOUT CREME COOKIES DIPPED IN DARK CHOCOLATE


1 PACKAGE OF CREME COOKIES (YOU CAN USE OREOS, WHITE OR CHOCOLATE, OR LEMON CREME GIRL SCOUT WHICH IS WHAT I USED IN THIS PICTURE
1 1/2 PACKAGES OF CREAM CHEESE (AT ROOM TEMP)
1 TEASPOON CINNAMON (OPTIONAL)
1/8 TEASPOON OF SALT (BRINGS OUT ALL FLAVORS)
1 PACKAGE OF GOOD CHOCOLATE (CAN USE ANY CHOCOLATE, I USE ALL, DARK, WHITE, MILK AND SEMI WHEN I MAKE THESE TO PLEASE EVERYONE)
1/4 CUP OF BUTTER (SOFTENED NOT COMPLETELY MELTED)
UP TO 1/4 CUP OF HEAVY CREAM OR MILK (TO MAKE CHOCOLATE CREAMIER)

TAKE COOKIES AND MASH THEM IN A ZIP LOCK BAG. THEN PUT IN A FOOD PROCESSOR TO FINELY GRIND, ADD ALL CREAM CHEESE AND CINNAMON TILL SMOOTH. REFRIGERATE FOR 30 MINUTES. WHEN READY TO SCOOP UP INTO SERVINGS USE A SMALL SPOON (I USE THE SMALL ICE CREAM SCOOP) AND PLACE EACH ONE ON A PIECE OF WAX PAPER. PUT INTO FREEZER TO HARDEN FOR ABOUT AN HOUR. IN THE MEAN TIME, MELT CHOCOLATE IN MICROWAVE OR DOUBLE BOILER... ADD A TINY BIT OF BUTTER AND CREAM AND MIX WELL TILL CREAMY (OR TO THE TEXTURE YOU PREFER). ONCE CHOCOLATE IS DONE, GET A FORK PLACE COOKIE MIXTURE BALL ON FORK AND DIP IN CHOCOLATE. PLACE BACK ON WAX PAPER AND FREEZE OR REFRIGERATE TILL CHOCOLATE HARDENS. STORE IN A ZIPLOCK BAG.
