Freezer Cookies are a miracle, a marvel of sweet thinking and sweet tastes! These little treats use tangy, rich cream cheese and fruity cereal as the base and then take a trip to the freezer for a refreshing twist on regular cookies. Then they’re dipped in creamy white chocolate with a hint of bright lemon for a crisp, vibrant flavor. Colorful, easy, and just so much fun, Freezer Cookies can make any get-together a cool experience!
