    48 Servings

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, Softened
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Peppermint Extract
  • 1 drop Green Food Coloring Gel
  • 1/2 cup Mini Semisweet Chocolate Chips
  • 12 ounces Ghirardelli Melting Chocolate, Melted (feel free to use the dark or the white chocolate, or both)

Directions

  1. Beat cream cheese and butter until creamy. Add sugar, peppermint extract and food coloring. Beat until well combined.
  2. Fold in chocolate morsels.
  3. Using a 1 tablespoon scoop, drop onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Freeze for about an hour (more is fine).
