Curt's Nutter Butter Truffles Guest Post



My son Curt's favorite cookie gone wild! 
Nutter butter  truffles!

Nutter Butter Chocolate Truffles
The recipe is everywhere with Oreo's, Curt  just loves nutter butter, so why not try other cookies you love he said? Easy 1,2,3 and their done. Perfect for Holidays too!  Try them in white colored chocolate!


8 ounces cream cheese
1 regular size 16oz  package Nutter Butters ( about 16 cookies)
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted

1. Place the cookies in a food processor and pulse until they are fine crumbs. Add the cream cheese and pulse again until a sticky dough forms. Use your hands to form the dough into 1″ round balls and place them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Place them in the fridge to chill for at least 2 hours or up to 1 day.



2. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave. Roll the chilled truffles in the chocolate until they are completely coated, place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Chill them in the refrigerator until they are set, about 1 more hour. Place in paper liners.

Oh yes, I want to make these! Those use to be my favorite cookie as a kid, and what a delicious looking treat, now made from them.

Curt has something there! I love peanut butter and NEVER, EVER buy those cookies because I'd eat them in one sitting.
But when my guard is let down, I'm making those truffles. ... or when no one is around to see me inhale them. :)

Hey Curt,

Chocolate, peanut butter and cream cheese... I didn't think my three favorites could exist so perfectly! Beautiful truffles.
