Usually around Christmas, I will make Oreo truffles. They are very chocolate-y and decadent. The idea came to me that Nutter Butter cookies would be a great substitute for the oreos, so I decided to give it a go. I must say, I was right! These are really good! They are also pretty simple, only containing 3 ingredients. If you want to try your hand at candy-making, this is a good place to start. You will need…
1 lb package Nutter Butter Cookies
8oz cream cheese, room temperature
12oz milk chocolate candy coating wafers
Break the cookies in 3 pieces and place in the bowl of a food processer. I have a mini chopper so I did mine in batches. Process until the cookies are ground into fine crumbs.
Place the crumbs in a mixing bowl along with the cream cheese which has been cut into cubes. Mix with a hand-held mixer until thoroughly combine.
Picking up about a teaspoon of the mixture, roll it into a ball. I use plastic gloves for this because the mix can be a bit sticky. Place on a wax-paper lined baking sheet and chill for at least 30 minutes or until firm. Thanks to my husband for helping with these pictures. It’s hard to roll with 2 hands and try to snap a photo at the same time.
When the balls are chilled, it’s time to dip! Pour the candy coating wafers into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute, then stir. Continue to cook for 30 seconds at a time until the wafers melt when stirred. It should not take over two minutes total. Dip each ball into the coating and place back on the wax paper. Allow to set up for at least an hour. Pack in an airtight contain and enjoy!
