Oatmeal Cookie Dough Truffles

Earlier this week, I was struck with inspiration to create these Oatmeal Cookie Dough Truffles.  Well, more accurately, I was struck with a craving for Oatmeal Cookies...and since I have a tendency to turn just about everything in our house into truffles, these little buddies were born!  Welcome to the World, Truffles!

If you like oatmeal cookies, you will love these truffles!  So easy to make, and so tasty!  I put mini chocolate chips in mine, but you can use chopped raisins or butterscotch chips as well, whatever you like in your usual oatmeal cookies!  You can also leave the add-ins out completely, if that is more your style.

I also topped some of the truffles with granola, dusted some with cinnamon, and left some plain.  I personally like the crunch of the granola, but my husband preferred the ones without granola.  So that bit is up to you!















Oatmeal Cookie Dough Truffles

Ingredients:

8 oz cream cheese (softened)
1/2 c. butter (softened)
2/3 c. powdered sugar
2 Tbs brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon (or more if desired)
2 c. oats
3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. mini chocolate chips (or raisins, etc...)

Coating/Topping:

12 oz. white chocolate
granola
cinnamon

Directions:

Cream together the butter, cream cheese, and sugars until fluffy.  Add the vanilla and cinnamon and mix well.  Stir in the oats and flour until dough forms, it should not be overly sticky, but should not be dry.  Stir in the chocolate chips.

Roll into teaspooon-sized balls and place on a silpat lined baking sheet.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes (or freeze for 15 minutes).  Meanwhile, melt the chocolate (I use the double-boiler method). Remove the truffles from the fridge and dip each ball into the chocolate, turning it to cover the entire surface.  Remove excess coating by lightly tapping along the side of the bowl and then place it back on the baking sheet to set, and immediately place granola and/or sprinkle with cinnamon.

Enjoy!
