  • 1 8 ounce package allowed Vanilla Sandwich Creme Cookies or shortbread I used K-Toos
  • 8 ounces allowed cream cheese
  • 12 ounces dark chocolate like Trader Joe's Pound Plus, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or shortening


  1. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the cookies to make cookie crumbs.
  2. Add in the cream cheese and process to combine.
  3. Dollop or roll any size balls and place on a Silpat or piece of wax paper.
  4. Freeze.
  5. When firm, melt your chocolate.
  6. Place chopped chocolate and coconut oil in liquid measuring cup. Place in microwave and start with one minute, and adding 15-30 second increments as necessary.
  7. When the chocolate is about half melted, you know you're done. There should still be chunks of solid chocolate (see above picture), and as you continue to stir the mixture, it continues to melt - OUT OF THE MICROWAVE. Do not heat too hot, or the chocolate will seize.
  8. Dip each ball into chocolate, stab with a skewer, drip the excess off, and place on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet.
  9. Harden in the fridge or freezer!
