Ok so everyone else probably has already figured this out before now but I am a little slow. After suffering through the mess of stuffing the cream cheese mixture by hand with a spoon for a long time we weren't looking forward to a large batch that we were doing for Labor Day. I thought about trying my jerky gun to see if it would speed things up. Holy cow! I used the snack stick tip. I wasn't sure how it would handle the thick mixture but a few seconds in the microwave and it was almost as easy as shooting cake frosting. Why didn't I think of this sooner or at least someone say "Hey dummy, you are doing it wrong!" LOL Now my wife doesn't mind making them again and we have another large batch to do in a couple weeks with no dread.
