Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Dough Truffles

Happy Mother’s Day!!! 
I hope that all the mothers had a great day today.  I spent the day with my husband and my son and we had a great relaxing day.  
These Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Dough Truffles are fantastic! They were so good and they tasted just like cookie dough covered in chocolate. Plus, they had the added bonus of chocolate chips and peanut butter cups.  These were great little desserts and were so delicious.  
I wasn’t sure how these would turn out, but I think they were one of my favorite desserts that I have ever made.  That’s saying a lot, since I love desserts! I was planning on sending these with my husband to work, but ended up keeping them all for myself, except for the few that my husband talked me into sharing with him.
These truffles are so easy to make and taste amazing.  These are one sweet treat that you are not going to want to share!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Dough Truffles

1 package (13.3 ounces) Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cup Cookies, finely crushed
8 ounces cream cheese
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
1/4 cup peanut butter chips, melted
1.  Mix the cream cheese and finely crushed cookies until well blended (To crush the cookies, I put them in a Ziploc bag and hit them with a rolling pin).  

2.  Shape into balls and then freeze for 10 minutes.  


3.  Then dip the cookie dough balls into the melted chocolate and then place onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  (I melted the chips by microwaving for 45 seconds, stirring, then microwaving for 10-15 second intervals until completely melted).  Then drizzle the melted peanut butter chips on top of the truffles. 

4.  Freeze for 10 minutes or refrigerate for one hour or until firm. 


Tips for melting the chocolate:

*  I read in a blog, I cannot remember which one, that the chocolate would melt easier if you add a drop of vegetable oil to the chocolate before microwaving.  This seems to make it easier to melt and a smoother consistency.

*  Once you microwave the chocolate, make sure that you stir it to see if all the chips will melt.  I realized that if you do not stir to see if it is completely melted, you may microwave the chocolate for too long and it will be hard to work with.  

*  To dip the truffles I use either a fork or a skewer. Then I roll the truffle around in the chocolate.  Once I take the fork or skewer out of the truffle, I cover the holes up with chocolate.
