Nutter Butter Truffles

Every Christmas we make truffles, like the favorite Oreo Cookie Balls. This year we’re adding Nutter Butter Truffles to the menu of holiday treats. They’re simple enough for kids to make and won’t take up space in your oven on cookie baking day. We like to wrap them in colorful candy wrapping foil and box them up to give to friends, family, and neighbors for a homemade edible Christmas gift.

The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make Nutter Butter Truffles (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

  • Nutter Butter cookies – buy the big 16-ounce package. It may say “family size.”
  • Cream cheese – use regular, full-fat cream cheese for the best results.
  • Powdered sugar – the sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness to the truffles.
  • Creamy peanut butter – chunky peanut butter is not best for this recipe. Use a regular creamy peanut butter.
  • Chocolate melting wafers – find candy chocolate meant for melting and dipping in the baking aisle of your grocery store. It might be called “chocolate bark” or “chocolate wafers.” The package should have melting instructions for you to follow.
  • Sprinkles or sea salt for topping – you can also skip these and leave the truffles plain.

How to Make Nutter Butter Truffles

Crush the Nutter Butters into a fine crumb using a food processor or blender. Tip: if using a blender you may need to blend the cookies in small batches.

In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and peanut butter together until smooth. Add the mixture to the cookie crumbs and mix until well combined.

Allow the truffles to set at room temperature for about 30 minutes or in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.

Variations

Sprinkle colors – choose the color of sprinkles for the season or event. We went with red/green/white for Christmas, but try a brown/orange/white combo for Thanksgiving, red/white/blue for July 4th, party theme colors, etc.

Other cookies – this recipe works well with just about any creme-filled sandwich cookie similar to Nutter Butters.

White chocolate – try dipping your truffles in white chocolate for a different look and flavor.

How to Store Leftover Truffles

Keep the leftover truffles in an airtight food storage container. When refrigerated, they stay fresh for up to two weeks. Serve them cold from the refrigerator or let them sit out at room temperature for 30 minutes to soften a bit before serving.
