18 Oreos or Nutter Butters
4 oz cream cheese, softened

Optional Toppings: candy bar, sprinkles, cookie crumbs, white or dark chocolate, nuts ... your options are endless
Pulse cookies in a food processor until they break down into crumbs. In a bowl mix together cookie crumbs and cream cheese. Roll your mixture into approximately ½tablespoon sized balls and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Place in freezer for 20 minutes.

Chocolate Dipped Pineapples & Clementines - This is my go to snack doing the holidays. Fresh clementines, pineapples and chocolate just makes me think of the holidays.
1 (7oz) cup Baker's DippingChocolate
3 pineapple rings
coarse sea salt
Line baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Remove peel from clementines and break apart wedges. Cut pineapple rings into even 1-2" chunks. Take pineapple chunks and use paper towel to blot any excess juice off of them.
Melt dark chocolate in the microwave as instructions suggest. Heat until almost all the chocolate is melted and then, stir until the rest melts to avoid burning chocolate.
Dip all the fruit in melted chocolate half way. May need to use a skewer to help with dipping.
Set dipped fruit on parchment paper. While they are still wet, sprinkle with sea salt.
To harden, place baking sheet loaded with chocolate dipped fruit in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
