snickerdoodle truffles, an easy Christmas treat for kids to make

I feel like I need to check myself into some kid of treatment program for people who are addicted to truffles. Any and all kinds, but especially these Snickerdoodle cookie truffles. I now find myself looking at cookies, cupcakes, cake, fudge and wondering if I could make it into a truffle. The answer is yes, yes you can.

This time I used some Snickerdoodle cookies (store bought because life is hard and sometimes you need easy). I whipped up some truffles, chilled and covered them in white chocolate. That first bite. OMG, that first bite. These did not disappoint. All the amazing flavors of a Snickerdoodle amplified in a small bite. 

These Snickerdoodle truffles are so easy and amazing, you gotta try them! But fair warning: once you try them you may also be suffering from truffle addiction. Symptoms include wanting to turn every sweet treat into a truffle.

But first…let’s take a closer look at the Snickerdoodle.

What are Snickerdoodles, anyway?

Snickerdoodles are a totally classic cookie. Sweet cinnamon and sugar come together for a cookie that gives all the best of sugar and spice in one delicious bite.

Are Snickerdoodles an American thing?

Yes, as it turns out, they kind of are. Snickerdoodles were likely brought to America by Dutch-German immigrants, but they rose to prominence in 1891 thanks to New York City cooking teacher Cornelia “Nellie” Campbell Bedford, who shared her recipe in a local newspaper. 

By the end of the 19th century, the Snickerdoodle was discussed daily in newspaper columns around the country.

What do Snickerdoodle cookies taste like?

Snickerdoodles are really just sugar cookies that get rolled in cinnamon and sugar before baking. 

They are delicious. And they’ve remained mostly unchanged since their 1890s introduction…until now. I might be biased but I think these Snickerdoodle cookie truffles might be the next variation of this dessert to go viral.

How to Make Cookie Truffles

So, how do you take a cookie and turn it into a truffle? It’s really pretty simple, which is one of the reasons these Snickerdoodle cookie truffles are one of my favorite no-bake holiday dessert recipes.

To make a cookie truffle you need:

  • Cookies (store-bought work great)
  • Cream Cheese
  • Chocolate (any variety that melts well)


Then, simply break the cookies up into coarse crumbs, mix with cream cheese, form into balls and dip into chocolate. They’re easy to make, perfect for making with kids and sure to be a major hit at your next holiday party.

This recipe for cookie truffles with cream cheese is super versatile, so if you don’t love Snickerdoodles you can totally make these with Oreos, chocolate chip cookies, vanilla wafers or any other store-bought cookie. Nutter Butter cookie truffles, anyone?! That would be insane!

2 cups Snickerdoodle cookie crumbs, about 12 cookies

4 ounces cream cheese, softened

2 cups white chocolate wafers or chips, melted


  1. In a food processor, place the cookies and pulse until they are crumbs. Snickerdoodles are usually pretty soft, so you can crumble by hand as well.
  2. In a stand mixer, pour the cookie crumbs in plus the cream cheese. Mix on low until well combined.
  3. Prepare a baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper. Take about a Tablespoon size of dough and roll by hand into a ball. Place on the baking sheet. Repeat until all dough is used.
  4. Pl;ace in fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes but longer if able to.
  5. Once chilled, place the white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and melt 30 seconds at a time and stir after each time until white chocoalte is smooth.
  6. Remove the truffle balls from the fridge. Using a fork, dip each balkl into the white chocolate to coat. Tap off excess white chocolate and place back on baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle cookie crumbs over top or sprinkles.
  7. Repeat with all the truffles. Store in the fridge until ready to devour!

  1. I made Peanut Butter Brownie Truffles using your Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting that I had leftover from making your Apple Cider Cupcakes. I made some more to use in Red Velvet Truffles. Now I plan on making these and will use it in place of plain cream cheese.
