Nutter Butter Truffles- The 10 with 5 Challenge
So...I'm finally getting around to posting my first 10 with 5 challenge recipe! I'm really pretty stoked about this because it's my first ever food blog challenge! Thank you to Rosy+Tart for hostessing! To see the other challengers posts please be sure to click the challenge button in my sidebar!
Everyone in my house is addicted to the Oreo Truffles that I make over the holidays, but I'm a sweet & salty together addict, so I thought I'd try making them out of Nutter Butter cookies and they came out pretty awesome!
You're just 3 little ingredients away from this tasty treat!
Yup! Just Nutter Butter cookies (crushed), 8oz of cream cheese, (softened), and 24 oz of semi sweet chocolate (I use chips & melt them in the microwave)
Whip the cream cheese in and mix in the crushed cookies. I like to use my Kitchen Aid for this because it makes the smoothest centers for the truffles.
Roll tsp. of mixture at a time into balls and place them onto waxed paper lined trays. I made about 60 one inch centers from this recipe. Place into the fridge for about an hour to firm up.
Melt chocolate using your favorite method (I like the microwave) and dip the centers into the chocolate.
Place the dipped truffles back onto waxed paper trays and return them to the fridge (about another hour) so they set up.
Delish! I hope you'll try these!
I'll be stalking the cookie isle soon to see what I can come up with next!
