Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 4 Ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 package Oreo cookies
  • White bark candy coating
  • Gummy Life Savers
  • Mini M&M's
  • Red food-writing gel

Directions

Place cookies in food processor and process until the consistency of graham cracker crumbs.

Mix cookie crumbs with melted chocolate and cream cheese until it forms a dough ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 1 – 1 ½ hours.

Stick mini M&M's into the holes of the Gummy Life Savers.

Roll the cookie crumb dough into round balls for the eyeballs and form into an oval shape, pinching off one end a bit for the face.

Melt some white bark and stir until smooth. Use a bowl with some depth as you will be dunking the cookie balls into the bowl.

Dunk the cookie balls into the melted bark. An easy way to dunk them is to put a toothpick into the ball and dunk holding the toothpick. Put onto waxed paper to set and immediately take out the toothpick and attach a gummy candy to the top (do this while still wet so it sticks).

Once dry, add the red veins with red food-writing gel.

Cookie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cookie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.

Cookie Wine Pairing

Milk is more traditional with cookies than wine in the U.S., but a few cookies and a glass of sweet wine make a simple, enjoyable dessert. Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based cookies; sauternes or sweet German wines with sugar cookies; cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts; Italian vin santo with biscotti.
