Course Dessert
Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 24 truffles

Ingredients

  • 1-13 oz. pkg. chocolate chip cookies {like Chips Ahoy}
  • 4 oz. cream cheese {softened}
  • 1-10 oz. bag dark chocolate melting wafers
  • 12 mini chocolate chip cookies {like Chips Ahoy-cut in half}

Instructions

  1. Add package of Chocolate Chip cookies to the food processor and pulse until you have fine crumbs.  Pour crumbs into a bowl, add cream cheese and mix together {I used the back of a spoon but you could use your hands}. 

  2. Roll mixture into 24, 1" balls {I used a medium cookie scoop and then rolled them in my hands} and place onto silicone mat {parchment or wax paper} lined cookie sheet.  Freeze for at least 15 minutes.

  3. While the truffles are in the freezer, place the dark chocolate melting wafers into a heat safe bowl and microwave until melted {I started with 1 minute, stirred and then did 30 second increments}.

  4. Remove the truffles from the freezer and dip into melted dark chocolate wafers.  Garnish with half of a small chocolate chip cookie before the chocolate sets up.  Let truffles set completely and enjoy!!  Store in an air tight container in refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

If you don't have a food processor then you can put the cookies into a Ziploc bag and crush, using a rolling pin.
