Caramel Coconut And Fudge Truffles

Caramel Coconut And Fudge Truffles

    This past week, my husband and sons have been munching on caramel coconut and fudge cookies every single day.  I promise that I did not indulge but I definitely wanted to, if I’m being honest.  They taste delicious and are hard to resist.  I really wanted to have an excuse to buy even more of this cookie variety regularly so I thought it would be a good idea to include them in a fun and delicious recipe.  I hope you guys enjoy it as much as we did!

Caramel Coconut And Fudge Truffles

Caramel Coconut and Fudge Truffles

Yields: 1 dozen

INGREDIENTS:

1 box caramel coconut and fudge cookies
4 oz. (1/2 brick) cream cheese – softened
1/4 cup caramel sauce (I used ice cream topping)
12 oz dark cocoa candy melts
Optional – 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract

DIRECTIONS:

1. Line a large cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper and set aside.

2. Place the cookies in a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs. Reserve 1/4 cup of the crumbs for later use and pour the remaining crumbs in a medium mixing bowl.

3. Add the softened cream cheese and coconut extract. Mix until all of the ingredients are well incorporated. (You may find it easier to just use your hands).

4. Cover and chill for 20 minutes for easier handling.

5. Roll the chilled truffle mixture into 1 inch balls and place on the lined cookie sheet.

6. Freeze for 10 minutes.

7. Melt the dark cocoa candy melts in a double boiler or melting pot. For the double boiler, warm the candy melts under medium heat, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth.

8. Dip each truffle ball into the melted chocolate (I used a toothpick and a spoon) and place back on the lined cookie sheet.

9. Immediately sprinkle the truffle ball with a teaspoon of reserved cookie crumbs. The chocolate hardens fast because the truffles where in the freezer. I ended up dipping one truffle at a time and sprinkling it with cookie crumbs before moving onto the next truffle.

  1. Those are my favorite girl scout cookies. Interesting that you made a truffle out of them.

  2. YUM! Are these samoas? They certainly look like them! They are my favorite Girl Scout cookie 🙂 Mainly because I’m a coconut and chocolate fan!

  3. I remember when I was younger just living off of those cookies! They are so delicious. But making truffles out of them? Genius! Will be making these soon 🙂

  4. I could seriously go for a few of these right now. They look awesome! I love that coconut and caramel combination!

  5. I’ve been experimenting with truffles lately. The ones I’ve made taste good but look ugly. Yours look yum!

  6. These look so good! I love the sound of coconut and caramel together. Even better is this dessert is easy to make and no baking required! I will make some this weekend.

  7. I love truffles, especially chocolaty ones! This is one of my daughter’s favorite cookies too – she’s probably not going to share these lol!

    Why does all of the good stuff have coconut? Im allergic but everything yummy looking has it.

  9. These look like they would go perfectly with a tea or coffee. They look like they would be a lot of fun to make too, maybe even more fun to eat? I love the combination of Caramel, Chocolate and Coconut so these would be amazing.

  10. My kids love caramel, and this is the best thing to make for them in no time. Thanks for the recipe.

  11. Oh these look so good and not too hard to make! I wanted to find something else to bring to the relatives tomorrow for Easter…these would be perfect! Thank you for the great idea and recipe!

    The coconut and fudge cookies are so good they’re very addicting. I definitely have to give this a try, I just have to remind myself that the cookies are one of the ingredients so I don’t end up eating some or all of them.

  13. These look like truffles from a fancy French shop. They sure look good, and I love any recipe with cream cheese.

  14. Marti Tabora says:

    These sound absolutely fantastic, but I am a sucker for anything with cream cheese so there you have it. I will be trying this one.

  15. These look so delicious.

  16. Tracie Cooper says:
