How to Make Sugar Cookie Truffles
BAKE COOKIES: Make sugar cookies according to package directions and let them cool completely.
MIX DOUGH: Turn those cookies into crumbs using a food processor or a zip-top baggie and your hands. Combine the crumbs with the cream cheese and vanilla frosting, mixing well.
ROLL INTO BALLS: Roll the mixture into balls and chill in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.
DIP COOKIE BALLS: Melt white chocolate in the microwave and dip each sugar cookie ball into the melted chocolate.
CHILL AND SERVE: Top with sprinkles and chill until set.
Do I have to use sugar cookie mix or can I use something else?
You absolutely can use something else! If you’d prefer, you can use store-bought cookies or refrigerated cookie dough. You can even make sugar cookies from scratch if you’re feeling up to it.
How long will these homemade truffles last?
Typically, truffles will last a few days stored at room temperature in an airtight container. However, they can last several weeks if stored in the fridge.
Can you freeze sugar cookie truffles?
Yes! However, this can be unnecessary depending on why you want to freeze them. If you’re making them ahead of time for a party, placing them in the fridge should suffice. But if you ended up with a large amount you don’t know what to do with… store them in the freezer until ready to eat as they will last a few months.
Can I customize these truffle candies?
You sure can! To make it more fun, you can add a bit of texture to these. Instead of immediately adding sprinkles, pipe some more chocolate onto them in fun patterns and then adding different themed sprinkles. There are so many out there to choose from nowadays, so you can have lots of variety with your truffles if you choose!
