These treats will brighten your "dreary, rainy, Monday-tired from the time change" day. I have been thinking about a St. Patrick's Day dessert to make with the bottle of Irish cream sitting in the fridge. I also have zero motivation to go to the grocery store, Irish Cream Cake Bites were born and I never left the house or turned the oven on! I have a terrible history with Cakes Pops, they always end up disastrous for me, luckily I had this random box of Nilla Wafers sitting around with nothing to do!
I wasn't sure if it would work but it did and they are so good. Feel free to play around with the measurements , I was winging it and had good luck.
Here's what I used:
1 box of Nilla Wafers
1 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
4 oz cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla
1/2- 1 cup Irish Cream Liquor
Chocolate for melting
In a food processor, crush the wafers until they are tiny crumbs. Pulse in sugar and cocoa until combined. Add cream cheese until incorporated. With the processor on high, drizzle in the liquor until it forms a ball. You want it be pretty dense so it holds together. I didn't measure this, I'm sorry. You'll know if it's right. If by chance to add to much liquid you can use more confectioners sugar to tighten it up.
Once you get a few done, decorate with sprinkles before the chocolate sets.
