Chocolate Cookie Truffles


18 oz. of gluten free chocolate sandwich cookies with white filling
18 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 pound gluten free white chocolate chips (or semi-sweet chocolate chips or both)
1 TB shortening
Colored sugar crystals


Line a baking sheet with waxed or parchment paper; set aside. Place the sandwich cookies, 1/3 at a time, into the bowl of a food processor. Finely crush and place into a large bowl as each batch is done. When all the cookies are crushed, add the softened cream cheese to the bowl and beat with an electric mixer on low until everything is well combined. Shape into 1 inch balls using a small cookie scoop.

In a large saucepan or microwave safe bowl, melt the white chocolate chips and the shortening together over low heat or power until melted, cool slightly. If using the microwave only heat in 15 second intervals stirring well in between to ensure that the chocolate wont burn. If using a saucepan make sure to stir frequently to prevent burning.

Dip each cookie ball into the white chocolate coating, letting the extra drip back into the bowl. (I found using a fork works best for this.) Place each truffle on the paper lined baking sheet. Immediately, sprinkle with colored sugar crystals or drizzle with leftover chocolate, if desired. Place baking sheet in fridge and chill for 1 hour to firm up. Store, covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

High quality baking sheets really do make a huge difference when it comes to cooking and baking! I have the USA baking pans and they have been the best investment I have made so far. I use my baking sheets all the time and have had them for years. The durability and construction of these pans really make them worth every penny! One of the best things about these pans is they don’t warp! There is nothing like popping something in the oven and all of a sudden you hear a loud popping noise, and your goodies pop right off the pan!

To make this recipe up I used my Cuisinart Food Processor. The one I linked on here comes with the slicing and shredding disk along with an additional chopping blade. I love my Food Processor and use it so much it has earned a permanent spot on my counter. Click on the link to snag one for yourself!
