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