Just crumble cookies in a food processor and mix the crumbs with a small amount of cream cheese. Then roll the mixture into bite-size balls and dip in melted chocolate. Super easy!

I used this cookie recipe from my website, but feel free to use your favorite or even store-bought cookies to make these treats even easier.

After the truffles are dipped, top them off with a few extra cookie crumbs and chocolate morsels to decorate.

This is not food. Just processed junk mashed together and covered in more processed crap. Try real chocolate and you won’t ever look back.
