Maple Cream Truffles

Maple Cream Truffles

We celebrated Jaren’s (my son in law’s), birthday last night so I decided a special treat was in order so I experimented with these truffles and they came out great, so yummy and so easy!  I used these Maple Syrup Cream Cookies that I found at Costco:

Maple Syrup Cream Cookies

and this recipe for “Easy Oreo Truffles” and created something truly delicious, if I do say so myself!  Here’s how:

1/2 the box of Maple Syrup Cream Cookies, 22 oz or 1 tray

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened

1 bag Wilton candy melts in desired color/flavor (I went with white chocolate)

1  Crush all cookies with food processor until finely crushed.

2  Mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs in large bowl.  (Your hands are going to be the best way to do this and get it completely mixed together.)

3  Roll mixture into 1 tablespoon sized balls (I used my Pampered Chef mini scoop which is the perfect size) and set on wax paper.

4  Melt candy melts according to package directions and carefully dip balls in chocolate.  Place on wax paper until set.

UPDATE:  I made these again for my friend Sonja’s bridal shower and they came out so cute that I just had to add a picture of them (can you guess her wedding colors?).
