That teaser wasn’t a joke – I couldn’t keep these sugar cookie truffles away from the kids. I stepped away to start this post while the candy coating finished setting, and walked back into the kitchen to find my 3-year old’s mouth stuffed with truffle.

Recipe Notes:

  • I used store-bought sugar cookies for this recipe. Mine were a softer variety, but crunchy work well too. If you prefer to make your own sugar cookie instead of using store-bought, go for it!
  • I went a little overboard recently, when placing an order with Sprinkle Pop. You can use any sprinkles to decorate the finished truffles, but if you want something special, go with Sprinkle Pop. They have such a gorgeous collection, it’s not hard to see how I ordered a bit more than I should have. I used the Shiny & Bright Sprinkle Mix and the Christmas Magic Sprinkle Mix and in the photos you see here today. #notsponsored

Ingredients

  • 4 c. sugar cookie crumbs
  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 16 oz. white chocolate melts I used Candiquik
  • sprinkles (optional)

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine sugar cookie crumbs and cream cheese. Mix on medium-low speed until thoroughly incorporated and coming together.

  3. Use an ice cream scoop to portion out mixture. Roll each portion between palms of hands to form into a ball. Place on prepared baking sheet. Freeze for 15 minutes.

  4. Melt white chocolate melts in a shallow bowl according to instructions on package. (I microwave Candiquik in 30 second intervals, stirring, until melted.) Using two forks, gently coat each cookie ball in melted chocolate, allowing excess to drop off before transferring to a clean piece of parchment paper. After ever 2-3 truffles, stop to decorate with sprinkles (sprinkle with sprinkles!), as the candy coating sets quickly.

  5. Continue until completed. Allow all truffles to set before transferring to an airtight container.

  6. Store in the refrigerator until serving.

Recipe Notes

  • I used two packages (16 cookies) of Pepperidge Farm Mystic Sugar Cookies for this recipe. Crush in a food processor, since those cookies are a bit soft.
  • I used 1 16-oz. package White Candy Quick. I ended up needing just a touch more than that - and used some extra candy melts I had already in my pantry.
