Roar! Safari Baby Shower ... Nilla Tiramisu Cookie Balls

I had these pinned a while back and had to give them a try for my Safari theme, they reminded me of Zebra strips.  These Nilla Tiramisu Cookie Balls were easy to make and I love how they looked.  I doubled the recipe thinking we would have a ton of guest, so we ended up with a ton of these.  A nice treat for them to keep since I was not taking any sweets home with me .. lol. 

Ingredients

1pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
60NILLA Wafers, finely crushed (about 2 cups)
3Tbsp. MAXWELL HOUSE INTERNATIONAL Vienna Café, divided
# pkg. (4 oz. each) BAKER'S White Chocolate, broken into pieces, melted
2oz. BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted

Directions

MIX cream cheese, cookie crumbs and 1 Tbsp. coffee until well blended.
SHAPE into 36 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 min. Mix white chocolate and remaining coffee. Dip balls in white chocolate mixture; place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan. Drizzle with semi-sweet chocolate.
REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.
ALEXIS NOTES:  I used chocolate melts that I had left over from my Christmas baking.  I buy them in the bulk section of Winco because it's so much cheaper.  I used the white and milk chocolate ones instead of the Baker's chocolate.  I also made larger balls then they did because I was in a hurry and needed to get this done quick.  So when I doubled the recipe I had around 36 balls.

These can be made a day or two ahead of time.  Enjoy!!!
