Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These weren't too bad to make. These weren't too bad to make. I followed the tips on freezing before and after you make the balls... this helped. One more tip, in my opinion is to chop the cookies in a blender or food processor instead of pounding them in a bag. I pulsed mine in my blender and it made the crumbs fine which is probably what kept it from being gooey. I added a tad of canola oil to the chocolate to help thin it and melted in a glass bowl, The glass stays hot which helped my choc stay warm longer. I've only "dipped" once before and I dipped strawberries and some Oreos (yum!) so I wouldn't say I'm experienced in dipping and I think they turned out pretty good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from At first it´s quite tricky! At first it´s quite tricky! Put the batter in the freezer for a couple of minutes before making the balls after that put it in the fridge while you melt the chocolate so they will be firm and easy to cover them! I used 6 oz of unsweetened chocolate so it will not be so sweet and vanilla sandwiches cookies. Couldn´t find the red sparkles so I used red and white hearts. At the end they don´t look like the picture in the recipe but they look homemade and cute! I will be giving them to my family in little red flower pots. =)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I found issues with the dough being sticky as others have mentioned. I found issues with the dough being sticky as others have mentioned. After making the dough I placed the bowl in the freezer for about 10 minutes then rolled it into balls placed on a wax paper lined plate and put back in the freezer for 10-20 minutes. The cream cheese set up and it allowed me to shape the balls and they weren't sticky anymore. The recipe is a little rich but good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everyone LOVED them despite the way the looked. Everyone LOVED them despite the way the looked. I had a hard time getting the rolled balls to stay together to dip them in the chocolate. Like others note, I should have put them in the fridge or freezer for a while before dipping them in the chocolate. It's also important to keep them refrigerated after you make them, otherwise they end up as very messy chocolate cookie balls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are delicious! These are delicious! I made these for a staff of teachers as a Valentine treat. They were gobbled up quickly. I HIGHLY recommend putting the "dough" in the freezer for 30 minutes or so before rolling it into balls. It is much easier to work with the cold dough. Also, reheat the chocolate as needed during the dipping process.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tastes like cream cheese. Tastes like cream cheese. Extremely hard to make -- the batter is sticky. Refrigerating it before rolling made it easier to roll into balls, but the cold balls made the melted chocolate lumpy. Maybe with a double boiler, but that's too much work for something that just tastes like cream cheese.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from these are so easy to make. these are so easy to make. i didn't have any issue rolling into balls. i freeze the balls for about an hour, then dip in melted chocolate. i ended up using about three times as much melted chocolate as the recipe calls for. i used assorted sprinkles to look more festive

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I froze the "dough" after mixing for about 30 mins, then rolled into balls. I froze the "dough" after mixing for about 30 mins, then rolled into balls. Roll quickly and it works just fine. Then froze the rolled balls again for about 30 mins. They taste good, but nothing like "Red Velvet". I'm trying to figure out what to call them!
