They’re made with cream cheese, cocoa powder, red food coloring, vanilla extract, brown sugar, melting chocolate, and sprinkles!

Start by letting the cream cheese soften by placing it on the counter at room temp for about 30 minutes before hand.

Place your softened cream cheese, cocoa powder, brown sugar, red food coloring, and vanilla in a large bowl.

Using a hand mixer , mix until well blended. Place your cream cheese mixture in the freezer for about 30 minutes to an hour. You want it to be a thick enough consistency to hold form.

Line a small baking tray with parchment paper. Remove your cream cheese mixture from the freezer. Scoop the mixture into small balls one by one placing them a few inches apart on the tray.

Once you’ve filled your try place it in the freezer for another 30 minutes. This is to make sure they’re really solid before dipping and to give us time to get our chocolate melted. The melting chocolate is very temperamental and cools quickly so, be sure to have everything ready to dip before heating it up.

To melt the chocolate follow the directions on your package. I placed mine in a pot on the stove on low heat. Stirring it. At one point it started to thicken a little too much so I added a smidge of butter to loosen it up.

Dip each ball in the chocolate using a fork. Then place it on the parchment paper and quickly add sprinkles. Remember the chocolate hardens quickly!

Once you’ve finished dipping and decorating, they’re ready to enjoy. If you’re not serving them right away be sure to keep them refrigerated!
