Peanutbutter truffles by Bimmi1111 Peanutbutter truffles by Bimmi1111
Yay!:iconyummyplz:
I've started a new tradition where I make truffles around Christmas time. I've done it for two years now!
These aren't your normal truffles, they're actually super easy to make and really yummy!

This one is:
1 package of peanutbutter cookies. (Use any kind you want. I used Nutterbutters.)
8 ounces of cream cheese (full fat or none fat)
Chocolate almond bark. (I used half a block for these
Sprinkles on top :D (Big Grin)

For this one, if you picked Nutterbutters,  you should take maybe 4 or 5 cookies out of the package, unless you want more of a firm filling. If the package of cookies you picked is smaller, you don't need to worry about it.
Crush cookies into a fine powder. (use a food processor!) 
Make sure the cream cheese is easy to stir around, you can either let it set out a while or microwave it a bit.
Stir cookie powder with the cream cheese until it's mixed well.
Form little balls with your hands* and put it onto a cookie sheet. (I line mine with wax paper)
For easier decorating, put them in the freezer for a little while so they aren't as sticky.
Melt some of the almond bark in a bowl, then dip the truffles into the chocolate. I use two forks to cover them and then put them back onto the same spot they were on the cookie sheet.
The almond bark tends to harden pretty fast, so if you're putting sprinkles or anything like that on them, you should do so right after each truffle is dipped.
So yup... that's it. lol. So very easy and yummy!!! 

*If it gets too sticky, you can use powdered sugar to coat your hands. That helps. It WILL make the truffles a little sweeter, though!
