  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Set aside 1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar mixture from packet. Make drop cookies as directed on pouch. Cool completely, at least 15 minutes.
  • 2
    In food processor, process half of the cookies to fine crumbs. Remove and set aside; continue to process remaining cookies to fine crumbs. Mix all of cookie crumb mixture in food processor. Add cream cheese. Process until well combined and mixture can be pressed into a ball, 1 to 2 minutes. Shape cookie mixture into 42 (1 1/4-inch) balls; place on cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Refrigerate 15 minutes.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, microwave candy coating uncovered on High 60 to 90 seconds or until it can be stirred smooth.
  • 4
    Remove half of the cookie balls from refrigerator. Using 2 forks, dip and roll chilled cookie balls, one at a time, in coating. Return to lined cookie sheet; immediately sprinkle top with reserved cinnamon sugar. If coating has cooled too much, reheat. Repeat with second half of cookie balls. Store covered in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • For even easier dipping, take two plastic forks, cut out center two tines, and use to dip into melted chocolate.
  • Make ahead, and freeze truffles in airtight containers with waxed paper between layers.
  • Shape truffles fast by using a small cookie scoop.
  • No food processor? Follow step 1 as written. Then place half of the cookies in 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag. Seal bag; crush cookies with rolling pin to small crumbs, breaking up larger pieces with hands if necessary. Place crumbs in large bowl. Repeat to crush remaining cookies; add to crumbs in large bowl. Add cream cheese. Beat with electric mixer on low speed 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture is well combined, starts to come together and can be formed into balls. Continue as directed in recipe.
