Cookie Truffles


Description

A great use for extra cookies, leftover cookies, just-ok cookies and any other cookies you can’t manage to eat in time. Like cookie pops, but without the stick or fuss.


Ingredients

  • Cookies. I used half a gallon-sized bag of cookies.
  • Cream cheese. Enough to make a moldable paste with your pulverized cookies.
  • Baking chocolate/chocolate chips. Or just random chocolate you need to use. Leftover Halloween candy anyone?
  • Sugar, spices, cocoa powder. Optional, depending on the cookies you’re starting with.
  • Peanut butter, Nutella, nuts, dried fruit. Optional.

Instructions

  1. Put cookies in a food processor and pulse until they are a fine powder. Depending on the cookies, the texture of the powder will differ.
  2. If you’re adding nuts or dried fruit, pulse those with the cookies too.
  3. Pour the cookie powder into a bowl.
  4. Mix in sugar, spices, cocoa powder, if using.
  5. Stir in cream cheese (and any extras like peanut butter or nutella) until a paste firm enough to hold a shape forms.
  6. Melt chocolate in the microwave.
  7. Form the cream cheese dough into balls and use a spoon to dip and coat them in the chocolate.
  8. Set them on a silicone mat on a cookie sheet. Pop the sheet in the freezer for faster setting.
  9. Store the truffles in the freezer when not serving them.
