I hope everyone is immediately intrigued, because who knew cookie butter could get any better. But at last it has. These cookie butter truffles are as delicious and decadent as they come. If you haven’t heard of Trader Joes Cookie Butter yet, than I am sorry, but at least now you know. This stuff is seriously sinful, it’s impossible to resist. Cookie butter is like peanut butter and gingerbread mixed with your favorite biscuits. Of course there are many different ways to eat this, on pancakes, waffles, vanilla wafers, on fruit, endless choices. But my favorite, by the spoonful. Don’t judge.
These cookie butter truffles are such a quick thing to make, but no one will know because they be too busy salivating over these delicious babies. I recently made them for a bake sale and they were the first thing to go, not only are they something different but they look so cute and are the perfect bite size snack. But seriously the best part is how simple these are to make. They are as quick to make as they are to eat, which is good because they go pretty quick.
In a large bowl combine the cookie butter, powdered sugar and either crushed graham crackers or crushed vanilla wafers, mix until combined. I stuck my mixture into the fridge for about 10 minutes before I formed it into balls to make the job a little easier. Once set up using a measuring spoon or a cookie scoop, scoop and roll the mix into even balls. Place back in the fridge to set up, this makes it easier to dip them in chocolate. While they are chilling, melt your chocolate wafers over a double boiler, until melted. Remove the truffles from the fridge and dip in the chocolate, you may also simply drizzle the chocolate over the top, I also topped mine with some of the leftover crushed wafers. Let them set at room temp until the chocolate sets and serve!
