You can use any cookie of your choice for this recipe, however, we have had the best results with creme cookie sandwiches.


  1. Place the cookies in a food processor and pulse until they are fine crumbs.

  2. Add the cream cheese and pulse again until a sticky dough forms.

  3. Use your hands to form the dough into round balls, about 2 teaspoons.

  4. Place them on a cookie sheet lined with wax or parchment paper and put them into the freezer for at least 15 to 30 minutes, or until frozen solid.

  5. Melt the chocolate in the microwave; follow bag’s directions with melting, about 30-second intervals, stir, and repeat until melted.

  6. Using a fork, evenly coat each ball with chocolate.

  7. Use the fork to remove the truffle from the chocolate and before transferring it to the baking sheet, slightly tap the fork against the side of the bowl to get rid of any excess chocolate.

  8. Place on the baking sheet and repeat with the remaining truffles.

  9. Refrigerate for 1 hour allowing the truffles to become firm; if traveling, place in the freezer instead to prevent fast defrosting.
