You can make these with any kind of crisp cookie, whether its plain chocolate wafers, vanilla wafers, or your favorite kind of sandwich cookie like Oreos or Nutter Butters. I like to use Trader Joe’s version of Oreos.
- One 20-ounce package (roughly 42 cookies) sandwich cookies
- One 8-ounce package cream cheese; I use low-fat cream cheese
- One 20-ounce package of white chocolate almond bark or candy coating, preferably Log House
- Food coloring, preferably gel-based (optional)
- Chocolate chips (optional)
Put cookies in a large plastic bag. Crush cookies into small pieces.
Add cream cheese to the bag. Mix the cookies and cream cheese together well.
Using a teaspoon or mini ice cream scoop, roll the mixture into small balls. Chill the cookie balls for a few hours or overnight.
Once the balls are chilled, place the almond bark in a bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth. Add food coloring, if desired.
Dip the cookie balls in the melted almond bark and place on a wax paper-lined baking sheet and chill.
If desired, melt chocolate chips and drizzle on the chilled cookie truffles (you can also roll the coated cookie truffles in coconut or cookie crumbs, if desired, while the coating is still warm.)

How to melt white chocolate
White chocolate can be finicky. I usually buy melting wafers at the grocery store (they’re found in the baking aisle). Place wafers in a microwave-safe bowl and melt in the microwave at 50% power level for 30 seconds. Stir the chocolate and microwave again for 20 seconds at 50% power level. Continue until chocolate is smooth.
You can do this process with normal white chocolate chips, however I suggest adding a tablespoon of shortening or coconut oil to help thin out the consistency of the chocolate. Never add water to melted chocolate (see more tips for melting chocolate). While you are dipping the truffles, the chocolate may begin to thicken and harden. If so, return the chocolate to the microwave for an additional 20 seconds and continue working.
Dipping tools come in hand for dipping candies/truffles in chocolate. This is the set I own and they are a lifesaver. If you dont have dipping tools, place the sugar cookie truffle on a fork to dip and then use a toothpick or knife to remove excess chocolate off the bottom. Place on prepared cookie sheet.
Reese’s Nutter Butter Cookie Truffles Recipe
When it comes to desserts, our favorite combination is anything with chocolate and peanut butter.
These delicious no-bake truffles will quickly become your go-to dessert. You can even put your kids in charge of making them!

How to make No-Bake Truffles
If you have never made truffles before, don’t be intimated – it’s easy!
Start with a a package of Nutter Butter cookies. Stick those cookies in the blender and blend them until they are fine crumbs.
Add room temperature cream cheese to the blender until completely mixed together.
Move the dough into a bowl and gently fold in the chopped peanut butter cups (feel free to sample the dough at this point – it’s delicious).
Roll the dough into 1″ balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Stick the cookie sheet in the freezer for 30-40 minutes.
Melt the chocolate chips and shortening together in the microwave, stirring every 15 seconds until smooth. Dip each truffle (I usually use a fork or you could use a chocolate dipping tool that makes it easy!) in the melted chocolate and place back on the cookie sheet.
Immediately add sprinkles on top (if using) and place the cookie sheet in the fridge to let the chocolate set up.
In a few minutes, your truffles will be ready to enjoy!
These truffles are adapted from our Oreo Cookie Truffles – we just swapped out the Oreo cookies with Nutter Butters and added our favorite candy bar!

How to Make a Double Boiler:
Don’t have a double broiler? You can easily DIY one! Bring a few inches of water to a simmer in a saucepan. Place a metal or glass bowl on top of the saucepan. Find the bowl that fits just right, you want it to be snug. Make sure the water in the saucepan is not so high that it touches the bottom of the bowl. You want some space between the water and bowl. The steam from the simmering water will heat the bowl and melt the chocolate chips inside the bowl.

How long will they keep. Planning on making them 1 week before needing them, for a shower
How long will they keep? Planning on making them 1 week before needing them for a shower.
I just want to know how they make theirs look so pretty. Mine just didn't look that great after dipping but they tasted great.
We made these with nutter butter cookies. They taste like peanut butter balls. Yummy!
I've made something like these before. You need a full package of Oreos (or generic equivalent). DO NOT USE DOUBLE STUFFS! The "dough" gets too loose with the added moisture. Pulse in a food processor until fine crumbs (breaking in a bowl doesn't work nearly as well). Add the cream cheese and pulse until it's a large ball. Roll into 1" balls with hands. It will be messy, and the dough should be soft, but retain its shape. Place in fridge for at least 1 hr to harden. Melt almond bark (cheaper and easier to work with) in microwave per instructions. Dip and put back in fridge to re-harden. It works great if you use toothpicks. The holes they make are small and can easily be hidden if you put that side down.
No-Bake Sugar Cookie Truffles
Heads up: These no-bake sugar cookie truffles are magical. They come together in your food processor, and they&rsquore a great way to use up extra sugar cookies (you can use store-bought if you&rsquod like). Plus, they&rsquore about two bites each, meaning it&rsquos OK to have a second (and a third&hellipand a fourth&hellip).
2 cups sugar-cookie crumbs (from about 15 medium cookies)
6 tablespoons cream cheese, at room temperature
3 cups white chocolate chips
1. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the cookies until they are fine crumbs. Add the cream cheese and mix well to combine. The mixture should hold together when pressed.
2. Scoop the mixture into heaping tablespoon-size portions and roll into balls. Transfer the balls to a parchment-lined baking sheet.
3. Add the white chocolate chips to a medium-size microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 15 second increments, stirring in between, until chocolate is smooth and melted.
4. Dip the cookie truffles into the melted white chocolate to coat fully, returning to the baking sheet as you go. Before the chocolate sets, decorate with sprinkles.
5. Transfer the baking sheet to the refrigerator until the chocolate is set. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
Cookie Butter Truffles
As if cookie butter isn't addictive enough already, using it to make these chocolate truffles is dangerously delicious. Cookie Butter Truffles are cookie butter and white chocolate truffles with a dark chocolate coating. The combination of the butter, brown sugar and spice flavors of cookie butter with dark chocolate might just make this your new favorite treat. We recommend completing steps 1 and 2 the night before, so preparation before serving is even quicker.
I like to begin this recipe a day in advance. Follow steps 1 and 2 in the evening and the remaining steps before serving.
- 3 1 / 2 ounces white chocolate, chopped
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- 1 / 2 cup cookie butter (also called Speculoos or Biscoff)
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 6 ounces bittersweet dark chocolate, chopped
- Heat the white chocolate and cream together in a large heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water and stir until smooth (it will be thick). Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cookie butter and unsalted butter until smooth.
- Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm (2 hours or overnight).
- Use a tablespoon to scoop out some of the mixture and quickly roll it into a ball. Place on a baking sheet or large plate. Repeat with all of the truffles. It's ok if the mixture starts to melt a bit while rolling. Once all of the truffles are rolled, place in the refrigerator to chill until firm (20-30 minutes). Once firm, re-roll the truffles to fine tune their round shape and then place in the freezer for an hour.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Heat the bittersweet chocolate in a large heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water and stir until smooth. Remove from heat. Place a slotted spoon or spatula over the bowl of chocolate and then place a frozen truffle on top. Use a ladle to pour chocolate over the truffle until covered, allowing the excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl. Place the truffle on the baking sheet and repeat with the remaining truffles. Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator until the chocolate firms up.
- Serve chilled.
