Sugar Cookie Truffles – An Easy Holiday Treat

Ah, the holiday season. My favorite time to indulge in every sweet imaginable. If you’re like me, you’ll have a million cookies, cakes or pies left over after Christmas and a few good pounds to show for it. I came across the recipe for Sugar Cookie Truffles while attempting to find a purpose for some extra sugar cookies I made and was, quite frankly, tired of eating. The end product was so successful I plan to save a few cookies to make truffles every year! These delicious treats are basically Christmas goodness rolled up in a small, delectably edible ball AND as if you needed another convincing reason to make them, they can be used as cake pops. Yum!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sugar cookies (or 12 cookies)
  • 4 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 2 cups white chocolate melting wafers
  • Sprinkles for decoration

Directions:

  1. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place sugar cookies in a food processor and process until cookies turn into fine crumbs. Add cream cheese and process again until well-combined and mixture can be pressed into ball.
  3. Shape mixture into balls about 1 in. in diameter. Place on prepared cookie sheet and put in freezer for 15-20 minutes.
  4. While truffles freeze, melt white chocolate.
  5. Remove the cookie truffles from the freezer. Using 2 forks, dip and roll chilled truffles one at a time in white chocolate coating. Return to line sheet and QUICKLY top with sprinkles before the white chocolate cools.
  6. Store in an air tight container in fridge.

Tips

  • I used a basic sugar cookie mix and baked the cookies as instructed. Hard sugar cookie recipes are better for the truffles than soft.
  • Make sure to add sprinkles immediately after the truffle is dipped into the chocolate to ensure that they stick!
  • Here are some great tips for melting chocolate.

Now you’re ready to go try out some Sugar Cookie Truffles of your own!

Tasty, versatile, no bake and easy to make, they’re great for a unique dessert or a simple sweet after dinner. Push a stick into the bottom and you’ve got a holiday cake pop. Happy tasting!
