Uncoated Cookie Truffles

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.)

Cookie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cookie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.

Cookie Wine Pairing

Milk is more traditional with cookies than wine in the U.S., but a few cookies and a glass of sweet wine make a simple, enjoyable dessert. Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based cookies; sauternes or sweet German wines with sugar cookies; cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts; Italian vin santo with biscotti.
