The winner of this years best tasting prize was a no-bake cookie that tasted just like a Frango mint candy. It was so good, so easy, that we had to get the cook snookered before she would share the recipe.
Santa's Chocolate Balls
1 Box Trade Joes Peppermint Jo Jo Cookies (their version of Oreos)
1 Block Philly Cream Cheese (cause the off brand stuff never tastes right)
1 Bag Milk Chocolate (not semi-sweet) Chips
Put your Jo Jo cookies into your food processor and grind them up. Then slowly add your cream cheese. Toss it in the fridge for a while so the dough becomes a little less sticky. Then take it out and roll it into small balls (or big balls if that's your thing, I don't judge).
In the meantime melt your chocolate chips in double boiler, or in a covered crock pot (one mom recommended lining it with a turkey bag for easy cleanup) on low. When you've got all your balls in a row and your chocolate is melted, dip them and put them on wax paper to harden.
Make them! Trust me, you've never tasted balls this good.
