dark chocolate cookie butter truffles

dark chocolate cookie butter truffles | my skinny sweet tooth

I found this recipe for truffles online. Truffles? Sounds difficult.
Only 4 ingredients? Now we’re talking!

The original recipe called for almond butter. Well, that I did not have. All the nut butters I have are either flavored (cinnamon raisin) or PB2 (powdered peanut butter). I had the PB2 all measured out and ready to go for the recipe but then remembered I had cookie butter tucked away in my pantry. (It’s located way in the back so I can’t see it, let alone know it’s there … hey, it’s worked thus far!)

I grew up with grape jelly being the only companion to peanut butter. Strawberry? Ew. Blueberry? Gross.  My, oh my, how things have changed. Grape is the last flavor I seem to reach for these days. I pulled for the strawberry jam this time for the thumbprint cookies, and that decision was well rewarded in my belly.  However, feel free to use whichever jam/jelly you have on hand!
