Sugar cookie truffles make tasty snack

I had never heard of such a treat until a classmate brought them in for us to try. I immediately fell in love with the taste and texture of these little snacks, and I think you will too.

Before moving on to making the truffles, first you need to make sugar cookies. Any sugar cookie recipe will do, but if you don’t have one, here’s one you can use.

SUGAR COOKIE RECIPE:

3/4 cup softened butter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

3 cups sifted flour (I added another ¼ cup because it wasn’t thick enough)

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

Cream the eggs, butter, sugar and vanilla.

Add the rest of the ingredients.

Mix until you have a nice thick dough.

Place dough in freezer for 5-10 minutes.

Sprinkle your countertops with flour, so the cookies aren’t as sticky.

Roll out dough, and cut out cookies (the truffle recipe suggests that you make smaller cookies, about 2 inches in diameter).

Place on sheet (make sure they are spaced out and the pan has been sprayed).

Bake at 375 for 6-8 minutes.

Let them cool before removing.

After you have your sugar cookies made, it’s time to get going on your truffles.

TRUFFLE RECIPE:

12 sugar cookies (about 2 inches in diameter)

5 tablespoons cream cheese at room temperature (you may need to add extra to get the right consistency for rolling them into balls)

2 cups white chocolate for melting

Sprinkles for decoration

INSTRUCTIONS:

Place your cookies in a food processor (I used my Ninja Blender) and blend/process until the cookies are fine crumbs.

Add the cream cheese and process/blend again until you have a well combined mixture that you will be able to roll into balls. This should take about 1-2 minutes.

If your mixture isn’t firm enough, add another tablespoon of cream cheese.

Roll your mixture into balls about 1 inch in diameter.

Place the cookies balls on a cookie sheet and put in the refrigerator (1 hour) or in the freezer (15 minutes).

While waiting, melt your white chocolate that will become the coating of the truffles in the microwave.

Put all your chocolate in a microwavable bowl and start for 1-1:30 minutes.

After the first minute or so, stop the microwave every 20-30 second to stir the melting chocolate so it doesn’t burn.

Once that’s done, take the truffles out of the refrigerator/freezer and dip them in the melted white chocolate.

Place the truffles on a cookie sheet and immediately top with sprinkles (repeat process).

Store them in the fridge in an airtight container.

Enjoy!
