Happy Thursday! One of my favorite things about the holidays is all the sweet treats! The best sweets to have on hand are these gluten free sugar cookies and truffles! I just had to share this recipe with you, too! It’s such a crowd pleaser and I love to keep these on hand! If you’re not into gluten free, these truffles can also be made with regular sugar cookies. They are delicious either way!
SHOP THE CAKE STAND
Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Truffles
2 cups crumbled sugar cookies
4 oz cream cheese
2 cups or full bag white chocolate melting wafers
holiday sprinkles to decorate
Crunch up cookies by hand or with a food processor and add them to the mixing bowl with the cream cheese Once mixed together, start rolling the truffles into 1 inch balls. Place rolled ball into the fridge to chill at least 20-30 minutes. Heat up the candy melts- carefully dip each ball in and place it on parchment paper, immediately add sprinkles to the tops. Once dry, store the truffles in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week.
