  • Change Chocolate – You can easily make these with your favorite type of chocolate. If you’re not a fan of white chocolate. You can also use melting wafers. There are many colors to choose from.
  • Cookies – Feel free to use homemade sugar cookie or store-bought cookies. We have even used leftover sugar cookies that may have gotten a little hard.
  • Sprinkles – These truffles can be used for many different holidays. You can easily change the sprinkles to make for any holiday that you are celebrating.
  • Drizzle Chocolate – Melt candy melts that are red or green and drizzle over the top of the white chocolate.
  • Cake Pop – Make these truffles into cake pops by adding in a popsicle sticks.
  • Crush Peppermint – For a minty flavor, roll the truffles into crushed peppermint.
  • Nuts – If you like nuts on your truffles, crush up pecans, walnuts or almonds for a crunchy texture.

  • Cream Cheese – Make sure before mixing ingredients that the cream cheese has softened to room temperature. This allows for the mixture to smooth and creamy.
  • Melting Chocolate – We recommend melting chocolate in the microwave. You can also melt in a double broiler. For a creamier texture you can add in coconut oil.
  • Quality Chocolate – Using quality chocolate such as Ghirardelli creates a creamier texture and the chocolate melts better.
  • Cookie Scoop – To easily scoop the cookie dough, use a small cookie scoop. This helps to make the truffles even and perfectly round.
  • Prepare Baking Sheet – Feel free to line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. This helps for an easily clean up.
  • Chill Truffles – After dipping the truffles in the melted chocolate, make sure to place in the fridge to chill. This helps to harden the chocolate around the truffles.
  • Crushing Cookie – We recommend using a food processor to crush the sugar cookies. This helps to have a finely crumb texture.

Take these Sugar Cookie Truffles to the next level and decorate them. There are many ways to make them fun and festive for a delicious holiday dessert.

  • Crushed Candy Cane – Skip the sprinkles and use crushed candy cane on top or peppermint candies.

Can you Freeze Truffles?

Yes, you can freeze truffles. We recommend freezing them after you have dipped them in chocolate. Place in an air tight container and with layers with parchment paper in between the layers.

Place in the freezer and they will last about 3 months. The perfect dessert to make ahead of time.
