Peanut Butter Truffles
These are the perfect addition to your holiday baking collection. Who doesn't love peanut butter and chocolate? These are so easy to make and so addicting. The creaminess from the cream cheese makes them easy to eat and keeps everyone coming back for more. These were a big hit in my house and I can't wait to make more to give away as Christmas gifts!
1 package of Nutter Butter Cookies
1 package of Cream Cheese, softened, 8 oz.
Chocolate Candy Melts or Almond Bark
First you are going to crush the cookies, you choose your method. There are many put in a ziplock and pound, ziplock and rolling pin, or the more conventional food processor. Crush all but 5 of the cookies.
Next, add the cream cheese to the crushed cookies. Use the back of a large spoon to help the mixture come together.
Now, get out a sheet pan and cover it with wax paper.
Next, make one inch balls with the cookie mixture and place onto the wax paper. When all of the cookie mixture is rolled into balls, stick the pan into the freezer for one hour.
After one hour, melt the candy coating as directed on the package.
Now, using a spoon cover the balls in the candy coating, tap off the extra, and slide back onto the wax paper to dry.
Keep in the refrigerator.
