Lemon Cookie Truffles

Lemon Cookie Truffles

Don’t these look yummy and summery?  Last night we had an activity in my backyard for the ladies at church and I asked if I could make some sweets since I haven’t had much work lately and I need some projects so I made these truffles.  They are taken from the Oreo Truffle recipe on my blog with just a different cookie, you could make them with any cookie you like.  They are super easy!

1 lb, 2 oz package lemon sandwich cookies, divided

8 oz package cream cheese, softened

1 bag Wilton yellow candy melts (I used 1/2 bag yellow and 1/2 bag white)

1  Crush 36 cookies in food processor until you have fine crumbs.  Put these in a large to medium bowl and mix with cream cheese until you have a smooth mixture with no signs of the white cream cheese, your hands are the best way to mix this together.

2  Crush the remaining 9 cookies and reserve for topping.

3  Using a teaspoon or a mini scoop to measure, roll mixture into balls and set on wax paper or parchment paper.  (You should get a pretty good amount, this time it made about 40.)

4  Melt candy melts according to package directions.  Carefully dip balls into melted chocolate and set on wax paper.  Immediately sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs.  (I also sprinkled some of mine with Pampered Chef Lemon Sprinkles.)
