Put in the cream cheese and pulse to combine.
Scoop the dough into your hands using a small ice cream scooper and roll into a ball. Arrange the dough balls onto the prepared sheet and repeat until you use all the dough.
Put in the freezer for 1 hour and begin to make the outer layer.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler and mix until smooth.
Take out the dough balls and dip them into the melted chocolate.
Put back onto the sheet and add some crushed candy canes on top.
Let the chocolate harden before enjoying it.
