Cookie Truffles are super popular, and for good reason! Not only are they super delicious bite-sized treats, but they only require a handful of ingredients and they are endlessly customizable. Our current favorite has got to be these Lemon Cookie Truffles with the ideal balance of sweet with just a hint of tart.
The base comes together super quick in a food processor, at which point you scoop the “dough” out and roll into little balls. The next step can be a little more time consuming, but totally worth it. Melt white vanilla-flavored candy wafers in a double boiler or in the microwave at short intervals. Don’t try to be a hero and use white chocolate chips! They do not melt well and end up clumping together. Go with the flat, white wafers intended for candy making and your truffles will be much better off.
Once melted, dip the cookie balls into the chocolate coating and set on a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle with some yellow sprinkles to help get the point across that these are lemon (plus who doesn’t love sprinkles?).
