Peanut Butter Truffles

These are so easy, even a child could make them! Let's face it, as long as it tastes good and you didn't have to make it, you don't really care what's in it or how long it took to make. I'm so much more appreciative when someone cooks me a home-cooked meal now that I'm in the kitchen every night. Something as simple as a turkey sandwich tastes so much better when someone else makes it!

So surprise your family or your coworkers with some of these delightful truffles. They taste like so slaved for hours in the kitchen and if no one asks, that's what everyone will assume!

from Picky Palate

1 Bag Nutter Butter Cookies (or you can use a bag of Oreo's)
8 oz softened cream cheese
1 package Chocolate Bark (dipping chocolate in blocks)
1 square of the Almond Bark for drizzling (white chocolate blocks for dipping)

1. Mix ground cookies and cream cheese until well combined. Roll into 1 inch balls and place onto baking sheet or tray. Refrigerate overnight or until very firm.
2. Melt white chocolate according to package directions. Using 2 little spoons, dip balls into chocolate and place onto parchment paper to harden. Once dry, melt square of almond bark and spoon into the corner of a Ziploc baggie. Snip the corner of the baggie and drizzle chocolate back and forth over the truffles. Let dry.
3. I enjoyed mine chilled in the refrigerator, but may be room temperature as well.

I couldn't find bark of any flavor at my grocery, so I just used baking chocolate. Baker's makes a milk chocolate dipping sauce in a microwave-ready cup - I highly recommend this! I used about 3/4 of that cup for the chocolate and then melted about 6 squares of white chocolate to dip the other half in (since I'm the odd bird who doesn't really like chocolate).
