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.

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.
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.
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.
