Makes 16
 
Ingredients

250g store-bought vanilla cookies

1 bag Clinkers (160g)

250g block cream cheese

250g milk chocolate

Popsicle sticks

 

 

1. Place cookies into food processor and process until finely crushed. Remove from processor and place aside. Melt 100g of the milk chocolate and place aside.

 

2. Place Clinkers into food processor and process until crushed into small pieces. Remove half of the crushed Clinkers.

 

3. Add the cream cheese to the Clinkers in the food processor and process until smooth and the clinkers have mixed through. Add the crushed cookies and melted chocolate to the processor and mix until well combined.
