    <p>These were perfect for my little ones' Halloween parties. Instead of making the cake balls I used white munchkins from Dunkin' Donuts. Adorable and super easy and fun!</p>

    I removed the nuts and cut cost & calories by using a marshmallow for the head and icing fangs. Attach to the cookie with a dab of melted candy coating. Decorate as usual. Great for a room full of kids.

    I made this for my daughter's birthday treats at school since her b-day is close to Halloween. In place of the truffles, we used 1 pkg or crushed Oreo's mixed with 1 pkg of cream cheese. The kids and teachers were quite impressed. They aren't as hard to make as they look!

    I'd like to see an idea for these cookies that don't contain nuts of any kind as we have severe allergies here where I work and are a nut free facility
