  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 40 gingersnaps (about 2 1/4 cups), crushed
  • 4 packages (4 ounces each) semi-sweet chocolate, melted
  • 1 1/4 candy coated chocolates, such as M&M's
  • cup small pretzel twists, broken into pieces


Mix the cream cheese and cookie crumbs until well blended.

Shape the dough into 30 1-inch balls, place them in a single layer on a shallow pan, and freeze for 10 minutes.

Then, dip the cookie balls into the chocolate and place them in a single layer on a waxed paper-lined pan. Insert a lollipop stick into each cookie ball before decorating with the candy and pretzels to form reindeer.

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.
