Circus Animal Cookie Truffles


This summer has seriously flown by! I feel like I did not accomplish enough. I always say I am going to get so many things done during the Summer, but I never seem to. I was able to visit Moab, Utah for the first time, this past weekend. It was beautiful. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Do you remember those circus animal cookies? The pink and white cookies with rainbow sprinkles? Did you know they make really good cookie truffles? They make the original cookies seem like child’s play. They are very fast and easy, and make the perfect party food. I dipped them white chocolate and pink candy wafers, so they resemble the original cookies.

You will need:

Place cookies in a food processor.

Pulse several times, until cookies are ground into thick crumbs.

Add 1/2 can of frosting, and mix until a large ball is formed.

Scoop mixture with a smaller scooper onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Freeze truffles for 30 minutes (this makes them much easier to roll)

Roll into balls, and freeze for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, until they are completely frozen.

Melt candy wafers or white chocolate with 1 tablespoon of shortening, to help keep a thin consistency. Dip half of truffles in the pink melted chocolate. Dip the other half in the melted white chocolate. Top with sprinkles

Allow truffles to harden before serving
