  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop small portions of the cookie mixture using a melon baller or small cookie scoop and roll into twenty 1-inch balls. Lay on the prepared baking sheet and chill in the refrigerator for about 45 minutes.

  • Place white chocolate in top of a double boiler over lightly simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes. Dip cheesecake balls into melted chocolate and return to fridge to chill until chocolate has hardened completely, about 1 hour.

  • Place dark chocolate in top of a double boiler over lightly simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes. Drizzle dark chocolate over chilled cheesecake balls. Allow to set, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

I used white chocolate cookies but you can use dark or milk chocolate on the inside. If you find white chocolate too sweet there's no reason why you can't use milk chocolate to coat the balls too.

Awesome! I used fudge striped cookies dipped in chocolate then drizzled with the white. I made these as part of my holiday goodie give-away but I don't think they will make it into the bags! Just might keep them all to myself! Read More

I made this with colored white chocolate for Easter. I made it two ways. The second used Baileys Irish Cream coffee creamer for the kids. Drawback. Not a strong Baileys alcohol flavor. The ball was very soft and sticky. When dropping in chocolate the cookies tend to get soft fast and fall apart. I put hot chocolate in separate bowl which helped a lot It s a great tasting Cheesecake ball. I would use a few more cookies or less Liquid to firm up the ball a bit I used food processor Read More
