Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 (4 oz ) white chocolate baking bars, melted according to package directions
  • 1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup crushed coconut cookies (like Pepperidge Farm Sweet & Simple Coconut Cookies)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut

Instructions

  • Beat chocolate and cream cheese at medium speed with a mixer until smooth.
  • Add cookies and next 2 ingredients, beating just until blended. Cover and chill 2 hours

  • Roll balls in coconut; chill 1 hour before serving.
  • Refrigerate in a single layer in a container up to 1 week.

Notes

  • Serve these sweet confections in mini ¬†cupcake wrappers for a festive & tidy bite.
  • Optional:¬† Add 1 tablespoon coconut rum to cookie mixture.
