  • Mix  cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended; shape into 24 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 min.
  • Pour  nonpareils into shallow dish. Dip cookie balls in melted chocolate, turning to evenly coat each ball; gently shake off excess chocolate.

Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
  • Place  coconut in large resealable plastic bag. Add food coloring; seal bag. Shake bag to evenly tint coconut.
