Cookie Truffles

Posted by Lindsey On 1:30 PM

I usually only make oreo truffles around the holidays, but Ben has been asking for them for weeks now so I decided to finally make some for him. I made the oreo truffles which we have had several times and I also made the nutter butter truffles for the first time, they are amazing and taste similar to buckeyes, if you are from Ohio you know how addicting and amazing buckeyes are.
