Samoa Truffles

Hi Ya'll! I thought I would try something a little different over the weekend. I have been wanting to try out making truffles and a few other things. So here we go! What a better way to start my experiments other than with Samoa Truffles? I know Girl Scout cookie season is over, but Keebler makes a cookie called Coconut Dream that tastes just like the Samoa's! I promise! I got this recipe from Cookies and Cups

Samoa Truffle:

2 packages Coconut Dreams
1 pkg cream cheese softened
melting chocolate ( I used the last of my Euphoria Chocolate melting disks)
1/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut
Crush the cookies in a food processor (or in a baggie with a rolling pin) until they are turned into a fine crumb.
Mix crumbs with the cream cheese using the back of a spoon or your hand. Roll mixture into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Place in the freezer for about 15 min.
Meanwhile toast your coconut and melt your chocolate. Dip each ball into the chocolate then sprinkle with the coconut. Place back onto the wax paper and let dry.

Eat and enjoy!
