So, this is another recipe that I found and just had to try. I am really excited about this recipe! It is something different for our family and will be another nice small bite size dessert for Easter. After I made them tonight and everyone had a taste I placed them in my egg tray and took pictures. I think that is how I will display them for Easter Dessert. Wow, if you love Nutter Butter cookies, chocolate and bananas then you are gonna love this recipe. This recipe I found on Kraft recipes.com

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg
    (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 25
    nutter butter cookies, finely crushed (about 3 cups)
  • 1/3 c
    mashed ripe banana
  • 2 pkg

How to Make Nutter Butter Banana Cookie Balls

Step-by-Step

  1. Crush your cookies in a food processor.
  2. Add the cream cheese and bananas to the cookie crumbes until well blended. Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls. ---- After I formed them into balls I placed them for 10 minutes into the freezer and then I dipped them. It is so nice this way because then the candy chocolate hardens really fast. Just don't leave them in the freezer for too long because if they get too cold after you dip them in chocolate it will crack.
  3. Dip in chocolate; place in a single layer on a piece of waxed paper. Sprinkle with nuts.
  4. Refrigerate till time to serve.
