1 8.8-ounce package Biscoff cookies
8 ounces softened cream cheese
4 ounces white chocolate squares or chips
4 ounces dark chocolate squares or chips
2 tablespoons heavy cream, plus more as needed
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a food processor, pulse the cookies until they are ground and become a fine, sandy texture.
Place the ground cookies in a large mixing bowl. If desired, remove about a tablespoon of the ground cookies to use as garnish for the truffles. Mix the ground cookies with the softened cream cheese.
Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet.
Refrigerate or freeze the balls until set, at least an hour.
In microwave-safe bowls, melt the white chocolate with one tablespoon of heavy cream and the dark chocolate with the other tablespoon of heavy cream. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring each time, until smooth. Add additional heavy cream to achieve desired dipping or drizzling consistency.
The truffles can either be dipped whole into the melted chocolates to coat, or the chocolates can be drizzled on top. For garnish, sprinkle the truffles with the reserved cookie crumbs while still wet. Place back on the baking sheet and refrigerate or freeze again until the chocolate is set.
Serve chilled from the refrigerator. Place the truffles in small, decorative liners for elegant presentation.
How to Store and Freeze
Store leftover truffles in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week or freeze for up to a month.
