When my children were little, we would use any reason to have an inside picnic. We always made a big deal out of it. First, we would make all our favorite finger foods. Then we would spread out a blanket on the floor. Once we had everything in place, we would stay up late and watch our favorite movies. These cookie truffles would have been the perfect dessert for our celebrations. Easy to make and easy to eat, these treats are simply delicious.
Not only are these truffles easy to make, but you can make them any flavor that you like. Use your favorite cookies for these no bake Cookie Truffles.
I bet Mom would love a batch of these truffles for Mother’s Day.
