  • 1  Cup  semi-sweet chocolate morsels, such as Nestlé Toll House
  • 3/4  Cups  heavy whipping cream

Directions

For the Truffles

Bake cookies according to package directions; cool completely. Place 6 cooled cookies in large, resealable plastic bag and crush into fine crumbs with rolling pin. Set aside. 

Place chocolate in small bowl. Microwave cream in uncovered, microwave-safe safe measuring glass on high power for 30 to 45 seconds or until boiling. Pour over chocolate and stir until smooth. Add butter and 1/2 cup of cookie crumbs. Stir until the texture is smooth. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.

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.
