What You'll Need
- 1 (11-ounce) package vanilla wafer cookies, divided
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 1/2 cup maraschino cherries, drained and finely chopped
- 1 (24-ounce) package chocolate almond bark
- Colored nonpareils or sprinkles for garnish
What to Do
- Place 32 wafer cookies flat-side up on baking sheet lined with wax paper. Set aside remaining cookies.
- In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, and almond extract; beat until smooth and creamy. Stir in cherries. Top each cookie on baking sheet with 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture.
- Place remaining cookies on top, flat-side down, creating a sandwich cookie. Chill in refrigerator for at least 1 hour or until filling is firm.
- Melt bark according to package directions. Using a fork, dip each sandwich cookie into the melted bark, coating completely. Allow excess to drip off and return to baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle with nonpareils, if desired. Allow cookies to set, then serve or store in an airtight container in refrigerator.
