Easy Chocolate Cream Cheese Truffles
Serving Size / Yield
- 1 box cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies
- 1 8-oz. brick of cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 bag chocolate chips
Put the sandwich cookies in the bowl of a food processor and process until they are a powdery texture. This usually takes 3 minutes.
Once the cookies are a uniform powder, add the cream cheese to the cookies and process another 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides if there is buildup.
When the cream cheese and cookie mixture is uniform, scoop it out into a plastic dish, and place in the freezer for about an hour. It won’t become completely solid, but it will be stiff enough to work with.
After removing it from the fridge, use a spoon to shovel little bits of the mixture out, and roll them into balls, approximately 1-1.5 tablespoons.
Place the individual pieces on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper, and put a tooth-pick in each piece. Once this is done, they need to go back in the freezer for at least an hour.
Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave, or in a double boiler.
Take the pieces out of the freezer, and dip them in the melted chocolate, holding them by the tooth pick, and put them back on the cookie sheet. Once this part is done, they will need to go back in the freezer for another 45 minutes or more.
Pull out the toothpick prior to serving and eat!
