12ozbag of coconut cookies
1tbslight brown sugar
1 1/2cupsof pink candy melts
Run the cookies through the blender or food processor to get coarse crumbs.
Mix the cookie crumbs, light brown sugar and cream cheese together in a large bowl. Don't be afraid the get in there and mix it with your hands to get it all incorporated.
Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and lay them out on a parchment paper, on a large tray. Place the tray in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
Once the cookie bites hardened, take them out.
Melt the candy melts in the microwave-safe container, in the microwave, for a minute on half the power. Stir and microwave for another 30 seconds (at half the power) if needed.
You can use a fork to dip the coconut bites in the candy melt. Smooth it over with your fingers to spread evenly and take off excess coating as well. There should just be a thin coating of candy.
Dip in coconut right away and press lightly.
Lay the coconut bites back on parchment paper and refrigerate. Keep in the fridge since there is cream cheese in the cookie bites.
