Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Truffles

Cookies & Cream Cheesecake Truffles recipe #christmas from Delicieux | www.deliciouseveryday.com

My Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Cupcakes has been one of the most popular posts of the year. I mean, who doesn’t love cookies and cream, and cheesecake, and cupcakes.

Not only have they been popular with my readers, they have been popular in our house  too. In fact I’ve made them several times at my husbands request, and I’ve only been too happy to acquiesce since I have a soft spot for cookies and cream too.

So when it came to make my Christmas truffles I thought I’d try my hand at Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Truffles.

A thin coating of chocolate surrounds a soft, melt in your mouth cookies and cream cheesecake filling.  And boy are they good. Really good! They’re so good you’ll find it hard to stop popping them in your mouth.

They also make wonderful Christmas gifts. Just make a double batch otherwise they might disappear before you have a chance to gift any to friends.

Delicious and easy no bake cookies and cream cheesecake truffles. Makes 24
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 250g of cream cheese
  • 200g of chocolate cookies, finely crushed
  • ½ cup of icing (powdered) sugar
  • 200g of dark chocolate, roughly chopped
Instructions
  1. While the cream cheese is still cold from the refrigerator place it in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and beat for a minute until softened. Switch the mixer to it’s lowest speed and add the powdered sugar and beat until combined and the mixture is smooth and creamy. Switch the mixer off and fold through 150g of the crushed cookies using a spoon. Refrigerate the mixture for at least an hour, preferably two.
  2. Place the remaining 50g of crushed cookies into a small shallow bowl and line a baking tray with non stick baking paper. Remove the mixture from the refrigerator and roll into rough balls before rolling in the crushed cookies. Roll the mixture again in between the palm of your hands and place on the baking paper. Rolling the crushed cookies helps get the surface somewhat smooth, but given the mixture is quite soft it will be difficult to form perfect balls. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
  3. Melt the dark chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, or in the microwave. Using two forks, or a chocolate dipper if you have one, dip the cheesecake mixture in the melted chocolate and use the forks to remove the truffle from the chocolate. Tap the fork to remove excess chocolate and place back on the baking paper to set. Sprinkle with remaining cookies crumbs.
  4. Refrigerate until set and then store in a sealed container.
Notes
Truffles should last a week in the refrigerator…. that is unless you eat them first!

    What a clever idea and what perfect little bites of cheesecake!

    This looks like a delicious recipe and gorgeous Christmas present too. All that needs to be replaced for a gluten free version is the chocolate cookies - Woolworths has a good Macro range of chocolate cookies that could be substituted here for any Aussie readers :-)

      Thanks for sharing that gluten free tip Julia. Merry Christmas :D

    Hmm... I have all the ingredients to make these right now. To go to bed or to make cookies and cream cheesecake truffles? Oh the dilemma!

    So decadent yet only a few ingredients. It's such a lovely gift idea and one that older children could help with too. Thanks for sharing!
