Insanely Easy Samoa Sundae Cheese Cake Balls

It never fails, every year right before spring we have Girl Scout cookies up to our ears. I am a sucker for those cute little gals in uniform. I try not to eat even half of what my husband and I buy, so I have been trying to come up with creative things to do with the cookies. 

Samoa Sundae Cheese Cake Balls
  1. • Box of Samoa Girl Scout Cookies
  2. • Tub of whipped cream cheese
  3. • Caramel sauce (the sundae topping kind)
  4. • Magic shell (the ice cream topping)
  1. Crush the cookies in a processor or a zip lock bag and rolling pin.
  2. Dump the crushed cookies in a bowl with about half of the tub of cream cheese and pour in the caramel sauce. I use around 1/3 cup. I get the crazy thick and rich type, so I don’t need as much. It is a matter of preference. Mix all together, going light on the sauce, and add until you are satisfied. I use a hand held mixer to make sure that everything is mixed well.
  3. I stick this bowl in the fridge for 10-20 minutes. I need the batter to be firm to make the balls. Once cold, take a table spoon full and roll it around in your palms to form balls. Place on parchment paper and then place it in the freezer for an hour.
  4. Pour the magic shell in a bowl and roll each ball around in the mixture, until it is thoroughly coated. Make sure you let the excess drip off before placing back on the parchment paper. Place make in the freezer to help the shell harden all the way. Once hard, place in zip lock bag or Tupperware and store in the freezer.
  1. With Easter around the corner, make them into more of an egg shape and before the shell hardens all the way sprinkle with coconut or drizzle with white chocolate and pastel sprinkles. I place them in mini cupcake paper cups and place them in a decorate box for a gift.
