Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 18 sugar cookie truffles


  • 2 cups (200 g) or 12 sugar cookies¹ about 2 1/2 to 3-inches in diameter
  • 4 tablespoons (2 oz or 57 g) cream cheese, room temperature²
  • 2 cups white chocolate melting wafers, or candy melts
  • Sprinkles for decoration


  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Place sugar cookies in a food processor and process until cookies turn into fine crumbs. Add cream cheese and process again until well-combined and mixture can be pressed into a ball, 1 to 2 minutes.²

  3. Shape cookies into balls about 1-inch to 1 1/2-inches in diameter. Place on prepared cookie sheet and place in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes.

  4. While the truffles freeze, melt white chocolate in a medium bowl according to instructions. (See my tips for melting chocolate.)

  5. Remove the cookie truffles from refrigerator. Using two forks, dip and roll chilled truffles, one at a time, in chocolate coating. Return to lined cookie sheet and immediately top with sprinkles. Repeat process for remaining truffles. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.

Recipe Notes

  1. Use hard sugar cookies, not soft. I suggest using my cut out sugar cookie recipe or buying Pepperidge Farm sugar cookies at the store.
  2. If the sugar cookie truffle dough is not firm enough to roll into balls, add another tablespoon of cream cheese.
