You only need 4 simple ingredients to make this no bake Sugar Cookie Truffles recipe. They are super easy and ridiculously delicious. Put them on a holiday dessert tray and watch everyone flock to them!
Prep Time: 20mins
Total Time: 40mins
15sugar cookieshard, not soft (homemade or store bought. See note.)
3ouncescream cheese, room temperature, cut into cubes
2cupscandy melts(any color!)
nonpareils or sprinkles, for finishing (optional)
Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
Place the cookies in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until they turn into fine crumbs. Add in the cream cheese and vanilla, process again until well combined and mixture can be pressed together without crumbling.
Using a small cookie scoop, form dough into 1-inch balls; place on the baking sheet.
Transfer the baking sheet to the freezer for about 20 minutes, or until firm.
Melt the chocolate candy melts according to package directions, until melted and smooth.
Using a fork, dunk the truffle balls, one at a time, into the chocolate and coat fully. Tap the fork on the side of the bowl to let any excess chocolate drip off, then place back onto the lined baking sheet. (Use a toothpick to help slide the ball off onto the sheet, if necessary.)
Add nonpareils (if using) immediately after dipping each ball.
Place in the refrigerator to set. Then remove from fridge at least 30 minutes before serving
If you prefer to buy the sugar cookies instead of making my homemade ones, that's fine! A 5.25 ounce package Pepperidge Farms is perfect. You should end up with 2 cups of crumbs, once processed.For recipe tips and storage, please refer to the full article.
