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.

  • 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.
