Making this recipe as stated (except for the Icing which I thought was just toooo much sugar), I was very disappointed that the cranberry and ginger flavors were hidden by the overpoweringly sweet taste from the white chocolate chips and the frosting. I though with the lemon juice added to the frosting, it would cut a bit of the sweet taste, but all it did was give it an interesting "tang" that really didn't sit well with the cream cheese. I made these for family get together for Christmas. I'll take them because I know there are some there with an extremely sweet tooth, but I won't be making them again.
Never having tasted the original they these were made to taste like, I can't tell you how close the taste is.
If I do make it again, I will leave off the frosting and not put the chips in either. Will probably drizzle a lemon juice/powdered sugar icing over the top, but nothing else.
