4-Ingredient Simple Triple-Chocolate No-Bake Truffles

It’s been raining & cold for days on end and I’ve spent lots of time in the kitchen making RancherMan’s favorite – bread. But RancherMan’s been in the kitchen too, making MY favorite – no-bake truffles. For Valentine’s day a couple of years ago he made me Mint/Chocolate Truffles but today he’s making Triple-Chocolate Truffles using double-fudge-stuffed chocolate cookies because, well you know, a girl can NEVER have enough chocolate!

Basic Ingredients

So into the kitchen he went, armed with the few very basic ingredients needed to make my favorite special treat:  A 15.25-oz package of double-filled fudge cookies, an 8-oz block of cream cheese and a few squares of chocolate almond bark.  No really, that’s all it takes.  #canyoubelieveit??

Easy Mixing

He started by placing the cream cheese in the KitchenAid mixer bowl to cream it thoroughly & smoothly.  Then he used our Ninja blender to completely pulverize the entire package of cookies.

(remember several months ago I asked my Facebook followers what they recommended for a do-it-all blender – they recommended the *Ninja and I’m so glad they did – I bought one & I LOVE IT!)

Now he simply dropped the pulverized cookies into the bowl with the cream cheese and mixed them together until it was all smooth.

When the cookies & the cream cheese were thoroughly blended he set the KitchenAid bowl in the fridge for about 30 minutes to harden the mixture somewhat.  This made the mixture a little easier to dip.  He then used a cookie scoop to measure out approximately one tablespoon of mixture for each truffle.

Firming Up The Truffle Mixture

Then he placed the shaped truffles in the freezer for about thirty minutes, which firmed up the truffles quite nicely.  While the truffles were in the freezer he melted 5 squares of almond bark in the microwave, then stirred in about 2 tablespoons of butter-flavored shortening to smooth the chocolate beautifully.  After the stint in the freezer he used a toothpick to dip each truffle into the melted chocolate to fully coat it.  The dipped truffle was placed on waxed paper, then placed back in the fridge for about 15 minutes to harden the chocolate.

Our Observations

This recipe made 2 dozen chocolate-dipped truffles and they were absolutely DELICIOUS!  The truffles he made last year were mint-chocolate because I’m nutty about the combination of mint/chocolate. But I’m guessing you can change up the flavor of your truffles simply by choosing whatever flavor cream-filled sandwich cookies you like.

In the past we reserved some crushed cookie crumbs to sprinkle on top of the finished truffles and although the presentation was beautiful, I think by not including those reserved cookies in the truffle mixture it made the truffles themselves a little too soft.  This time we used the entire package of cookies to form the truffles and I like the texture better this way.

Here’s the recipe we used:

Homemade Triple-Chocolate No-Bake Truffles - makes about 2 dozen

Author Texas Homesteader

Ingredients

  • 1 8-oz package cream cheese
  • 1 15.25 oz package Double Fudge-Filled Sandwich Cookies
  • 5 squares chocolate almond bark, melted
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter-flavored shortening

Instructions

  1. Soften cream cheese & blend until smooth.

    Crush entire package of sandwich cookies and add to the cream cheese in the mixer bowl and blend until thoroughly combined, scraping sides of the bowl often.

    Cover the bowl & place in the fridge for 30 minutes, or until firm enough to handle easily.

  2. After bringing the truffle mixture out of the fridge, use a cookie scoop to form truffles into approximately 1-Tablespoon balls.

    Place shaped truffles in the freezer for about 30-minutes to firm them up.

  3. In the meantime melt 5 squares of chocolate almond bark and stir in 2 Tablespoons of butter-flavored shortening.

    Using a toothpick dip each chilled truffle into the melted chocolate & allow to drain slightly before placing chocolate-covered truffle on wax paper. Place back in refrigerator for about 15 minutes to harden the chocolate coating. Store finished truffles in the refrigerator.

    Can be brought to room temperature prior to consumption or enjoy them chilled.

      Oh my, Janet. Yes, they’re amazing. I always tell RancherMan that I’m a huge fan of chocolate, but not ‘cheap’ chocolate. I like the real stuff, the decadently delicious stuff. These truffles fit the bill for me. ~TMH~

    I remember these and still make them every-once-in-awhile. Not often or I’d never fit through the doorway. :} Seems like everything that passes my lips; widens my hips. Have a great day and an enjoyable weekend.

      Me too Colleen, my handsome RancherMan makes them for me as a special treat, usually for birthdays or Valentine’s day. I’ve only made these once myself in all these years, I always reserve it for him to make since I love them so much and (as he says) I’d LOVE to make these for you, they’re so easy to make! That way they’re always special because they came from him, and always DELICIOUS! ~TMH~

      OMGosh Angie – all the FB readers who suggested the Ninja were RIGHT ON!! I mutter to RancherMan every time I use it, “DANG, I love this thing!”. A wise purchase for me indeed! RancherMan has asked what I’d like for Christmas and of course I begged him for truffles. He smiles because he says they’re so easy for him to make. I smile because they’re DELICIOUS! Win/win! ~TMH~

    These are my boys’ favorite truffle and they are so easy to make. I actually make them quite often!! Another one that is really good, if you like lemon, is grab the lemon Oreo’s, crushed them all up and add in the cream cheese, make the balls and dip in white chocolate. Oh man are they ever delightful. Hmm… I might need to go make these now, my mouth is watering! Thanks so much for sharing. I just love your blog! Have a wonderful day! Blessings, Amy

      Becky I’m not gonna lie, they ARE fabulous! And you can drizzle chocolate to make designs across the top for a lovely presentation as well. Or try drizzling white chocolate instead for a whole new presentation punch. The sky’s the limit, give ’em a try! ~TMR~

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day I absolutely love Truffles of all kind and so very lucky of you to have a wonderful man to make them for you. My hubby needs a recipe on how to boil water. :} He’s totally clueless when it comes to making something in the kitchen. I didn’t make me no truffles yesterday but I did make some green Mint Chip Cookies. Enjoy your day. Was so nice yesterday that I went out in the afternoon and mowed part of our yard. Perfect weather for working outside.

    What a nice gift for you….. truffles… and a post idea also. 🙂 Your truffles sound wonderful… I think I have had a similar one at church… the lady said they had cream cheese and oreos… and her husband and son made those also… they were so good. Thank you for the recipe. 🙂

      Truffles are my absolute favorite decadent treat. I don’t have them often because, well, they’re so expensive. (the good ones anyway) So when I read that you could make them easily I was pretty excited. My handsome man made the mint/chocolate ones for me as a Valentine’s Day gift and I was over the moon. But these were made using a slightly different procedure & ingredients & I like them even better. And added bonus points (especially with guys in the kitchen) for the fact that these truffles are super easy to make. ~TMR~
