Nutter Butter Truffles

By March 6, 2012

Follow me on:

Ever feel like Oreos get all the fun? (I'm sure the answer to that rhetorical question is "no," since normal people probably don't ponder cookies in an anthropomorphized fashion.) However! If you're like me, and you spend precious brain cells thinking about these things, you might start to feel like Oreos get all the glory in the cookie aisle. They're made into cheesecake crusts, turned into truffles, and mixed into ice cream on a regular basis. What are the other cookies to do?

In the case of Nutter Butters, I recommend fighting back and creating a truffle of your own. These Nutter Butter Truffles are similar to the popular Oreo truffles, but they use a mixture of peanut butter and cream cheese (and of course, peanut butter-flavored Nutter Butter cookies) in the candy base. If you're a peanut butter fan, you'll love this easy cookie truffle variation, and if you're an equal opportunity cookie lover, you'll appreciate the attempt at cookie diversity.
