Sugar Cookie Truffles

Treat yourself to these delectable sugar cookie truffles — a delightful fusion of sugar cookies and cream cheese coated in creamy white chocolate. They’re an elegant dessert perfect for the holidays, parties, or any celebration. Sprinkles add a fun and festive touch!


  • 2 cups (200 g) sugar cookies (about 12 cookies, each 2 1/2” in diameter)
  • 4 tablespoons (2 oz or 57 g) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 cups white chocolate melting wafers or candy melts
  • Sprinkles of your choice, for garnish


  1. Preparation: Start by lining a cookie sheet with parchment paper. This ensures that the truffles won’t stick, making them easier to handle and store.
  2. Cookie Processing: In a food processor, pulse the sugar cookies until they are reduced to fine crumbs. To this, add the cream cheese and blend again until the mixture is well combined. The resulting mixture should have a consistency that can be easily shaped into balls.
  3. Form Truffles: Roll the mixture into balls, about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Place these balls on the previously prepared cookie sheet. Once all balls are shaped, put the tray in the freezer to allow the truffles to firm up. This should take around 15-20 minutes.
  4. Melt the Chocolate: As the truffles chill, take the white chocolate melting wafers or candy melts and place them in a medium-sized bowl. Melt the chocolate in the microwave, using a 50% power setting. Make sure to stir every 30 seconds to prevent the chocolate from burning and ensure even melting.
  5. Coat the Truffles: After the truffles are chilled and firm, remove them from the freezer. Using two forks, dip each truffle into the melted white chocolate, ensuring it’s fully coated. Lift the truffle out of the chocolate, allowing any excess to drip off, and place it back on the parchment-lined tray.
  6. Decorate: Immediately after coating each truffle in chocolate, sprinkle your chosen sprinkles on top. This ensures that the sprinkles adhere to the truffle before the chocolate sets.
  7. Store: Once all truffles are coated and decorated, place them in the refrigerator. Allow them to set completely, which will likely take an hour or so. After they’re set, transfer them to an airtight container. These truffles can be stored in the fridge for up to a week. If you wish to store them for longer, you can freeze them for up to a month.

Serving Suggestion: Serve these sugar cookie truffles chilled. They’re a hit at parties and also make for a thoughtful gift during the festive season. Enjoy!
