The countdown to Christmas has begun! One of the things I look forward to this time of year is spreading a little love and Christmas cheer to those around me. I love spending the weekend baking some unique and delicious cookies and then wrapping them in cute little festive containers to hand out to my neighbors. I found this recipe this morning and couldn't wait to share it with you all...this is one of many I'll be sharing I'm sure...
|1.||Crush 9 of the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor; reserve for later use. (Cookies can also be finely crushed in a resealable plastic bag using a rolling pin.) Crush remaining 36 cookies to fine crumbs; place in medium bowl. Add cream cheese; mix until well blended. Roll cookie mixture into 42 balls, about 1-inch in diameter.|
|2.||Dip balls in chocolate; place on wax paper-covered baking sheet. (Any leftover chocolate can be stored at room temperature for another use.) Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs.|
|3.||Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store leftover truffles, covered, in refrigerator.|

HELPFUL TIP: I used "Candi Quik" instead of bakers chocolate in this recipe. It's much easier, you can find it in the baking isle of the grocery store (or even walmart) and it has microwave instructions on the back...I LOVE IT!
Have a beautiful weekend, everyone!
