These scrumptious little truffles are a fun alternative to the tradition Christmas sugar cookies.
Makes: 18 servings || Takes: 35 Minutes
2 cups (200 g or 12 sugar cookies about 2 1/2 to 3-inches in diameter)
3 tablespoons cream cheese, room temperature*
2 cups white chocolate for melting (or candy melts)
Sprinkles for decoration
Place sugar cookies in a food processor and process until cookies turn into fine crumbs. Add cream cheese and process again until well-combined and mixture can be pressed into a ball, 1 to 2 minutes.
Shape cookies into balls about 1-inch to 1 1/2-inches in diameter. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and place in the freezer for 15 minutes or the refrigerator for 1 hour.
In medium bowl, melt white chocolate according to instructions. (See my tips for melting chocolate .)
Remove the cookie balls from refrigerator. Using a spoon or two forks, dip and roll chilled cookie balls, one at a time, in coating. Return to lined cookie sheet and immediately top with sprinkles. Repeat process for remaining cookie balls. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
