Two Sisters Times Two, Serial #47 and Snickerdoodle Truffles

Posted on

Ever wish you could capture all the delicious flavors of one of your favorite desserts in a single intense bite? How about all the nuances of banana pudding in one pop-in-your-mouth bite? That would be nice but near impossible with all the textures and subtle flavors of banana pudding. The same could be said for such traditional favorites as key lime pie or tiramisu or red velvet cake or lots of other possibilities you might think of.

But what about capturing the flavors of a snickerdoodle cookie in one bite? Seems possible, doesn’t it?

Well, we’re here to tell you that not only is it possible, we’ve done it with these Snickerdoodle Truffles. No baking required. Just mix, chill, roll into bite-size truffles, and eat. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

And you’ll have all the flavor of a snickerdoodle cookie in one yummy bite. Not quite the same as Caribbean vacation in a glass or a spa day in a jar; but we’re just a sweets and stories site, not miracle workers. Just pop one of these Snickerdoodle Truffles in your mouth and close your eyes and dream about that Caribbean vacation. That’ll have to do for now.

Snickerdoodle Truffles

2 cups vanilla wafers (roughly 40 cookies)

1/2 cup white chocolate chips

pinch of salt

2-4 Tablespoons milk or cream

2 Tablespoons granulated sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

Add the vanilla wafer cookies to a food processor. Pulse the cookies until they become fine crumbs. Add the white chocolate chips, salt, and 2 tablespoons of milk to the food processor. Blend the ingredients until the mixture comes together. If the mixture still seems too dry, add another tablespoon or two of milk. Scrape sides of food processor and blend ingredients together until completely smooth. This will take about 4-5 minutes. It will be the consistency of natural peanut butter when it is done. Pour the mixture into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Place in your freezer for 20 minutes, or until firm.

Once the mixture is firm, roll the dough into 1-inch balls. The dough will be sticky. You should get about 12 truffles. Combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Roll each truffle in the cinnamon sugar. Place truffles in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. Serve the truffles chilled.

Makes 12 truffles.
