Chocolate Chip Cookie Cream Truffles Recipe
As I’ve mentioned in the past, I always throw our leftover Christmas cookies into my food processor and chop them up for future use. Of course, I don’t mix them all together. I crush up each cookie flavor and then, pour them into separate freezer bags. The leftover chocolate chip cookie crumbs are the ones I used in this recipe.
If you don’t have any homemade, feel free to use store-bought cookies! They will still be delicious.
- 4 cups chocolate chip cookies, crushed
- 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup confectioners sugar
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 16 oz package milk chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon shortening
- 1/8 cup peanuts, crushed (optional)
Combine the crushed chocolate chip cookies, cream cheese, confectioners sugar, heavy cream and vanilla in a large bowl. Stir with an electric mixer until smooth.
Use a medium scoop or a heaping tablespoon to create balls (about 20) of the cookie mixture. Position the balls on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Freeze for 10 minutes.
Pour the milk chocolate chips and shortening into a deep bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute to melt the chocolate. Heat in additional 20 second increments, if needed.
Stir crushed peanuts into the melted chocolate, if desired.
Remove the cookie cream balls from the freezer. Dip each ball into the melted chocolate. Place back on the wax paper and allow the chocolate to harden.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
