I just made this today for dinner with friends. I am NOT a baker, so I was glad to find something that seemed so simple. Like one of the other reviewers, I replaced half of the cream cheese with vanilla Greek yogurt, and reduced the sugar a bit so the cocoa stood out more. The result was an instant, runaway hit. These things are so tasty and easy to make they're a definite threat to my weight-loss plans. Love 'em!

1 1/2 cups cold heavy cream (whipping cream)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
8 oz cream cheese , softened

Place cookies into a ziploc bag and slightly crush using a rolling pin. You want them broken up but not completely into crushed.
Remove 2 tablespoons of crumbs and set aside for garnish.
