Golden Christmas Truffles
This year I needed a quick and easy Christmas treat for the people I work with. They are terribly helpful and ask for little in return. The least I could do was make them a delicious dessert for the holidays. These truffles are very simple to make but beyond tasty.
To make these, you will need to gather:
1 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
1 package of golden, cream filled sandwich cookies- mine did have one missing :)
1 20 oz package of vanilla flavored almond bark
Whip the softened cream cheese until it is light and fluffy.
For the cookies, crumble them into a food processor and pulse until they are a fine crumb. Think sand at the beach.
If you do not have a food processor, you could easily crush them in a bag with a rolling pin.
Combine the cookie crumbs and the cream cheese until well mixed. You can either do this by hand or use and electric mixer.
Roughly chop up the almond bark and microwave for 1 full minute. Stir, stir, stir. Then microwave for 15 second and stir repeatedly just until it is melted.
Be careful to not to heat it past just melted, it will cease up and it is nearly impossible to get it back to a happy and melty form
I used a cookie dough scoop to shape the truffles into balls, but you could just use a spoon.
If the chocolate starts to cool and get too thick, you can pop it back into the microwave for a few seconds.
Shape the truffles, roll them in the chocolate and place them on wax paper. Once you get a few finished, sprinkle them with some pretty sprinkles or whatever decoration you wish!
