Now let’s get into some of the details of the recipe, shall we?
Chocolate Cookie Balls
The star of this recipe is Keebler Fudge Stripes Original cookies. These delicious chocolate cookies add a tasty, chocolate-y touch to the cookie balls. Plus, the Kellogg’s Original Rice Krispies Cereal adds a scrumptious, crunchy texture to the final product.
I picked up all my ingredients for this recipe from Target, including the semi-sweet chocolate chips and low-fat cream cheese. These Market Pantry brand items are such a great everyday deal at Target.
The first step is to place about ten cookies into the food processor. Pulse until a fine ground texture is achieved. For the full detailed recipe, scroll down to the recipe card.
Add 2 ounces of cream cheese to the food processor and pulse until the mixture comes together and is homogeneous.
Take teaspoonfuls of the batter and roll between your hands until smooth, uniform balls are formed.
Meanwhile, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave.
Pour the Kellogg’s Original Rice Krispies Cereal into another small bowl. Now it’s time to decorate the cookie balls.
Dip the chocolate balls first into the melted chocolate and then into the cereal. Place the balls in the freezer to firm up for a bit.
The balance of textures in these cookie balls is absolutely perfect… the creamy texture of the cream cheese, the rich taste of the chocolate, the crunch of the cereal coating all complement each other so nicely.
Each bite is truly scrumptious!

Those would go over big with my kids. They love tasty sweet treats like this – especially as an after school snack.
Fudge Stripes have always been at the very top of my favorite cookies list. I’ve never thought to use them in a recipe. I love what you’ve done with those Fudge Stripes. Your cookie balls look delicious!
It combines so many things I like from chocolate cookies up to rice crispies. This would really make a delicious combo.
Fudge Stripes used to be my favorite cookie as a kid! Who am I kidding? They’re still one of my faves!
What a fun way to use Rice Krispies and Keebler Cookies! I might have to try these with their grasshopper cookies too!
We love fudge stripe cookies in our house. This would be a great treat to try….we are chocoholics here!
Would love to try this if I need a sugar fix
This is a great idea! Never thought to coat my chocolate cookie balls with Rice Krispies before! Love it!
I love this quick and easy to make chocolate treats. I love that you added rice krispies to the recipe for that added crunch. Maybe I can also tweak the recipe and make different variations, replacing the rice crispies with toasted coconut, or crushed peanuts/almonds, etc. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Awesome idea. I love that these treats are no bake and that you can tweak the recipe to make different coatings. I love the rice crispies coating on this recipe. However, my husband “recently” discovered coconut. I’d make some for him with coconut.
I love chocolate cookie balls! So this is how to prepare it. Thanks for sharing.
Oh my, what interesting idea. Thanks for sharing.
Those wouldn’t last very long around here! I have a sneaking suspicion that my hubby would absolutely love these.
The school just started and I think this will be a good snack for my son whenever he goes to school! Added this one on top of the other recipes! This is surely fun to do!
I am sold. This looks so good and it’s easy to make. It’s a nice treat for the kids to enjoy during the summer especially after a long day of playing outside. I’d love to make this for them.
I will show your recipe to my daughter as she always look for some fun things to make in the kitchen. This looks delicious.
These chocolate cookie balls are a great treat idea for any occasion. The Keebler Fudge Stripes were my favorite cookie when I was a kid. This recipe I will have to make for sure. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Can’t decide between cookies and confections? You don’t have to! These chocolate-covered cookie balls feature a filling of cream cheese and crushed cookies.
