Lumps of Coal

well, if you shaped them into nice round balls you could call these Raspberry Truffles. I’m calling them lumps of coal.


Lumps of Coal
8 oz light cream cheese
36 reduced fat Oreo cookies, finely crushed
1/3 c. sugar free raspberry jam
1/4 c. chopped Craisins
8 oz milk chocolate chips, melted

Combine cream cheese, Oreos, jam and Craisins. Shape into 48 1-inch balls. (I just scooped tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto a cookie sheet covered with foil.) Freeze 10 minutes. Melt chocolate chips and dip the balls into the chocolate to cover. Keep refrigerated.
