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:
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?).
