Recipe Tips


Mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended; shape into 40 (1-inch) balls. Place on waxed paper-covered rimmed baking sheet. Freeze 10 min.


Dip cookie balls in melted candy coating, turning to evenly coat each ball with candy coating. Return to baking sheet.


Cut small slit in top of each gumdrop piece. Bend 1 sour belt strip in half to form loop; insert both ends of loop into top of 1 gumdrop piece, then press gumdrop into top of 1 cookie ball to secure. Repeat with remaining gumdrop pieces, sour belt strips and cookie balls.


Add decorations as desired to resemble holiday ornaments.


Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.  Keep refrigerated.
