Nutter Butter Truffles are so easy to make, and incredibly delicious. My family was in love with these immediately! These are the perfect dessert to do ahead of time, and would be a hit to any gathering.
Nutter Butter Truffles
Our family has enjoyed Oreo Truffles, and one day I wanted something with peanut butter. I started to think about what to make and I wondered how it would turn out if I used Nutter Butter Cookies to make truffles.
I can't tell you just how moist and amazing this recipe is, so you will have to try it for yourself! (Be careful, they are VERY addicting!)
You can freeze these, so feel free to double or triple the recipe and put some in the freezer for another time.
How to Make Nutter Butter Truffles
You will need to buy 2 packs of Nutter Butter Cookies, but if you double the recipe, you will use all but one cookie with three packages of cookies. You will need 1 – 8oz Cream Cheese, about 1 1/2 package of Reese's Peanut Butter Chips and 3/4 cups of Coconut Oil or Crisco.
In a food processor, you will add 40 Nutter Butter Cookies. You will want to make the cookies into crumbs. If you have any bigger pieces just crumble them in your hand.
Next, add the softened cream cheese and mix it together in the processor until a round ball is formed.
Remove the ball of dough, and place it on a prepared cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Using a small melon scooper, scope balls and place on wax paper. Freeze for at least 20 minutes.
A few minutes before removing the balls from the freezer, melt the chips and coconut oil or crisco in the microwave. Be sure to not over cook the chips, by doing only 20 seconds at a time, and stirring in between the next 20 seconds.
Place several toothpicks in several balls (one per ball) and dip into the melted mixture. Spin the ball in the bowl to remove the excess coating. Place on wax paper to harden.
To remove the toothpicks (and reuse them) just twist it a few times, and it will come out.
You can cover the whole that the toothpick leaves, by drizzling melted chocolate chips over the top.
This recipes makes approximately 42 balls. Store in the refrigerator or freeze until you are ready to serve. They only need about 30 minutes to thaw.
