What You Need to Make these Dough Bites
Cream Cheese - we used Neufchâtel. The generic store brand is fine.
White Chocolate Chips - We like Ghirardelli chocolate. It's not that much more expensive and we love the flavor for this sweet treat.
Flour - we heat treated the flour so it is safe to eat it.

How to Make This Recipe
Heat treat the flour by either spreading it on a baking sheet in a preheated oven at 350º for 5 minutes or or sticking it in the microwave in a glass bowl for on high for 60 seconds.
Let it fully cool before using, and sift through it with a fork to make sure no clumps formed while heating.
Place the cream cheese in a microwave-safe large bowl for 15 to 20 seconds on medium power.
Add maple syrup to the bowl along with the vanilla extract. Stir well until creamy and smooth.
Add maple syrup and vanilla extract and stir until creamy.
Add the flour in a little bit at a time until it's all mixed in.
To make small balls evenly sized, use a 4 cm cookie scoop to scoop bites onto a parchment paper or a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
Let the cookie bites chill in a single layer for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. If your fridge looks like mine, you might want to pick up this container. You'll use it all the time!
Place the white chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave it in 15 seconds increments until it's creamy.
You can use a double boiler if you don't want to use a microwave. It may help to add coconut oil to the chocolate and stir well if it's too thick to dip. The coconut oil will not change the flavor at all and will add a nice creaminess.
Remove cookie bites from the refrigerator.
Dip each little ball in melted chocolate using a fork. Let the excess chocolate drip off.
Add Valentine's Day sprinkles while they are still wet. Once they are dry, let them harden for 30 minutes in the fridge.
Chilling the dough is a step you can't skip! The cream cheese dough will be sticky and too hard to work with if it isn't cold. You can also leave the cookie bites in the fridge overnight and finish the bites the next day.
This makes just 9 bites, perfect for a family treat. Feel free to double or triple for more people.
- These cookie dough bites can be decorated with any kind of sprinkles.
