Spring Nutter Butter Truffles

flower truffles Header 2Hi, I’m Becky from Bite of Delight, and I’m excited to be part of the Somewhat Simple team!  I am thrilled to share some of my favorite recipes with you, especially a fun and easy recipe like these Spring Nutter Butter Truffles!

Just start with a stand mixer, a package of Nutter Butters, and cream cheese.  Add the cookies to your mixer bowl (I usually eat a couple first!) and crush them using the paddle attachment on speed 2 for a couple of minutes. {You can grind them in your blender, but that’s an extra step and more dishes.  The cream cheese softens the cookies, so the resulting texture is the same}  Add the cream cheese and mix until thoroughly combined.

To make round truffles, use a medium cookie scoop and scoop balls onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.  Roll the truffle balls between your hands to make them smooth and round.  If you want to make fun Spring shapes, roll some dough between your hands to smooth it.  Take a fondant cut-out and press it down over the top of the truffle ball.  Press the cut-out between both hands so the truffle dough is flush with the top and bottom.  Remove excess to use in another truffle.  Gently press truffle out of the cut-out.  Once all truffles are shaped, put them in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes to harden.

To dip the truffles, melt the white chocolate chips and vanilla almond bark according to package directions.  For flat truffles like the flower shapes, use a fork to dip them.  The excess chocolate drips through the tines when gently tapped against the side of the bowl.  Use a toothpick to gently push the truffle onto the parchment paper.  For the rounded balls I like to use a spoon (they always roll off my fork!) and then use a long toothpick to wipe away the excess chocolate.  If the chocolate cools too much during dipping, warm it again in the microwave for 15 seconds.

SPRING NUTTER BUTTER TRUFFLES

Ingredients:

  • 1 package Nutter Butter cookies, crushed
  • 1 (8oz) package cream cheese
  • 2/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 3 squares vanilla almond bark
  • sprinkles or colored almond bark for decoration

Directions:

  1. Mix crushed Nutter Butters and cream cheese until well combined. Form into 1 inch balls and/or flower shapes and place on parchment-lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate until firm.
  2. Melt almond bark and white chocolate chips according to package directions. Dip truffles and place onto parchment harden.  If decorating with sprinkles, add them before the almond bark has hardened.
  3. Melt vanilla almond bark and mix in desired color, and spoon into the corner of a sandwich bag. Make a small snip in corner, gently squeeze almond bark out, and drizzle back and forth over truffles in one swift, smooth motion, one row at a time.  Let dry.  Remove the excess drizzle and coating from the base of the truffles and place in mini baking cups.

Hi, I'm Becky! I blog at Bite of Delight, where I share my recipe adventures and the tasty bites of life. I'm a mom to four spunky kids, a wife to an amazing husband, and a lover of all things food. I discovered a love of cooking and baking after I made the leap to become a stay-at-home-mom when my oldest child turned one. What started as a duty to feed my family has turned into a love of creating good food for my favorite people, picky eaters and all! I love creating and sharing recipes, and feeding everyone that walks through our door... and if you don't come to me, I might just leave it on your doorstep!
