While Visions Of Cookie Truffles Danced In Their Heads

How sweet the season is!  Delicious delights at this time of year include an ingredient more important than flour and sugar, chocolate or vanilla.  As corny as it may sound, the main ingredient of most dishes prepared at the holidays is love- plain, pure, and simple.

No calories.

No guilt.

No nasty aftertaste.

Baking is a large part of the holidays at our house.  Baking brings us all together, initiates conversation, involves family, friends, and neighbors (in different ways but each of equal importance), and ensures everyone is touched by the meaning behind each dish, cookie, or candy.  Dave the Builder is taking two trays to work with him tomorrow, Apple Nut cakes were delivered to two of our neighbors last week, and I’ve spent the afternoon preparing cookie baskets for our other neighbors.  Let me share with you an easy, inexpensive, and impressive treat- Cookie Truffles.

Better Homes & Gardens

Ingredients

1 18-oz. pkg. chocolate sandwich cookies with white filling, finely crushed

1 8-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened

1 lb. white baking chocolate, melted

sugar crystals, optional

Directions

In large bowl combine crushed cookies and cream cheese.

Beat with mixer on low speed until well blended.  Form 1-inch balls by hand.

Dip balls in white chocolate; place on baking sheet covered with waxed paper.  The skewers didn’t work and toothpicks failed me.  I used two teaspoons and it worked great.

Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. To store, cover and refrigerate. Makes 50 truffles.

The crushed cookie merged with the chocolate and produced the perfect Christmas cookie, or so that was what the reviews stated. I thought I would include a pic of the cookie tray made for Dave & Co.

enjoy

  1. I absolutely love this recipe! We are making it for sure! I found you by clicking through an entry through Pioneer Woman. You have a neat blog. Feel free to check mine out. I have some good giveaways going on right now.

  2. Happy Holidays, Ruth- so glad you visited and thank you for your very kind words. Ruth, the cookie truffles are fantastic, delicious, scrumptious… you get the idea. My husband aka Dave the Builder reported back that the entire engineering department gobbled up the truffles in record time. They are easy, especially when you get your groove going with the dipping, and they taste much better cold. I like an expensive, easy, recipe for cookies or candy that makes a lot, and this one fits the bill. As soon as I finish typing this reply I’m heading over to your blog. Let me know what you think about the truffles after you make them.

    Merry Christmas!
