Strawberry Fudge Balls

Here is another new "cookie" recipe that I tried out this year. They were super yummy, but VERY messy to make!! I even chilled the dough overnight (since I didn't get to it right away) and my hands were so covered that I couldn't even roll the balls. I also ran out of almonds, so I tried rolling them in powdered sugar, which I think turned out pretty tasty too! :)

Strawberry Fudge Balls
(recipe found at

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (6 ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsels, melted
3/4 cup vanilla wafer crumbs
1/4 cup strawberry preserves
1/2 cup almonds, toasted and finely chopped

Beat cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add melted chocolate, beating until smooth. Stir in vanilla wafer crumbs and preserves; cover and chill one hour. Shape into 1 inch balls; roll in chopped almonds and chill.
