TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + freezing YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened

"Never solidified to something workable, even after 48 hours in the freezer, let alone something you could dip into warm chocolate and not have it fall apart on you."
