Let's Make It
Mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended.
Shape into 40 (1-1/4-inch) balls; press to slightly flatten. Top each with cherry; press cream cheese mixture around cherry to completely enclose cherry. Reroll into balls. Freeze 10 min.
Dip balls, 1 at a time, in melted chocolate; place in single layer in shallow waxed-paper lined pan. Sprinkle with sugars.
Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
How to Melt Chocolate
Place chocolate in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 2-1/2 min. or until chocolate is completely melted, stirring every 30 sec.
How to Easily Dip Cookie Balls
To easily coat cookie balls with the melted chocolate, add balls, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2 forks to roll balls in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove balls with forks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Place balls on prepared pan; let stand until chocolate coating is firm.
Pack these delicious cookie balls in small containers. Then, add a colorful bow and gift tag to each container and you've got the perfect holiday or hostess gift.
