Nutter Butter Balls

DSCI0362

I decided to do a spin-off of the Oreo Truffle Balls because who doesn’t LOVE peanut butter? I rigged a double-boiler with a 1.5qt pyrex and a medium saucepan. Don’t waste money on the metal ones that fit perfectly inside a saucepan… this doubles as a mixing bowl and costs under $5. [Ali, I’ve found our solution to melting choco chips in the microwave 😉 Thanks weggies!]

At any rate, these are equally as addicting as the Oreo ones, and would be incredible with the cookies COMBINED and a Peanut Butter chip shell… yes those are coming next! {salivating…}

I love how these things are so versatile, so let me know if you try something different!

Ingredients:

  • 1lb package Nutter Butter Cookies
  • 1 (8oz) package cream cheese
  • 5 oz creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar, plus more for dusting
  • 24 oz chocolate chips for shell (2 bags)

Steps:

  1. Crush cookies in food processor, then add cream cheese, PB, and powdered sugar. Process till a dough forms.
  2. Roll dough into 1″ balls and place on cookie sheet. Throw the sheet in the freezer for 15-20 mins till they harden for dipping.
  3. In the meantime, melt chocolate chips on double boiler for shell.
  4. Coat balls using a spoon to dip them around in, then place on cookie sheet. Dust with powdered sugar.
  5. Keep cool in fridge until serving.

    Are these too sweet?

    1. Actually they’re pretty rich, the semi-sweet chocolate coating tones the sweetness down and the balls are the perfect size!
