Nutter Butter* Truffles

After the wild success of my first attempt at Oreo Truffles, I decided to get a little 'nutty'.  
Get it, nutty??


I have a list of cookie truffles that I want to make..
but for now, let's just concentrate on these peanut butter cookie ones :)

Here are my ingredients.
Target brand peanut butter cookies 
(because they were cheaper than Nutter Butters).

A brick of cream cheese.

A tablespoon, or so, of ground flax seed.  
You know, to make them healthy.

Chocolate chips.

How to:
Crush an entire package of cookies.  I used my food processor.  
You could put them in a ziploc bag and smash them with a rolling pin too.

Add to a medium size bowl.

Combine softened cream cheese to the crushed cookies.  
I do this by hand, it seems to incorporate quicker.

Once it's all combined, roll ~1" size balls.  
Place the balls on a parchment lined pan.  
Put them in the fridge for an hour or so to set up.

When you're ready, melt the chocolate chips. 
 I dropped 2 or 3 Nutter Butter* balls into the chocolate & rolled them around so the chocolate covers the entire thing.

Place the chocolate covered truffle back on the parchment paper.  
If you want, you can sprinkle some of the extra crushed cookies on top.  
Once they are all covered in chocolate, I put them back in the fridge to harden.

For the record, it took longer to write this post than it did to make these - they're that easy.  
Oh and yeah, they're DELICIOUS!
