I love making Christmas goodies, cookies, candy, cakes, fudge, etc... and am also always looking for something new to do. I decided to make some cookie truffles. Super easy and only 4 ingredients.
Now, these are not healthy. They are not good for you in any way but they are tasty little treats and work wonderfully as a gift for the neighbor, teacher, friends, family or to serve at a party.
1 bag of Sandies (Keebler cookies)
1 bag of semi sweet chocolate chips
1 can of white frosting (the second batch I only used HALF the frosting so the truffles were not tooth achingly sweet)
3 TBSP orange flavored jello
In a food processor place the cookies and pulverize them until you have crumbs. Add the white frosting and 3 TBSP of jell-o flavoring. Pulse until well mixed.
Scoop the mix by the tsp or TBSP depending on how big you want the truffles. Roll into a ball and place on wax paper or a greased cookie sheet. Place in the freezer to set/chill. 20 minutes is enough time. Too long and they will dry out and fall apart.
Melt the chips and 1 TBSP of vegetable oil in a bowl. Stir well until melted and glossy.
Dip the balls into the chocolate.
Allow to set. Drop on wax paper and cool or place in the freeze for a about 10 minutes. Store in the fridge if you are like we are here in NC and having record temps of 75-80 degrees you will need to keep them in the fridge. An air tight container works fine and you can keep them on the counter as long as your home is not "hot"... ie...75 or higher. If your house is like mine, they won't last long enough to melt anyway.
The second batch I decided to switch it up a bit. I used:
(Chips Ahoy) Choco Chunky cookies
3/4 cup Biscoff cookie butter
1 bag vanilla chips
In the food processor blend the cookies until a crumb like consistency then add the Biscoff. Process until blended well. Form balls and set in the freezer until firm. Melt the chips along with a TBSP of oil, mix well and stir until glossy. Dip the balls in the white chocolate. Drop onto wax paper and allow to set. Then place in the fridge or freezer to completely set.
