A Trio of Truffles - Cake Batter, Oreo, & Sugar Cookie


Sometimes (okay, a lot of the time!) it is hard for me to decide what type of dessert to make. This probably stems from the fact that I have hundreds of desserts recipes torn out from magazines, bookmarked in cookbooks, and pinned on Pinterest! This is why you see 3 truffles pictured instead of just one... I just couldn't decide!

The first is a cake batter truffle. Not a cake ball where you bake the cake and mix it with frosting but cake mix mixed with butter, vanilla, and milk. So delicious! LOVE LOVE LOVE this truffle!

The second truffle is an Oreo truffle. I've been making these for years and they are EVERYWHERE! I'm not sure there is anyone who hasn't had one of these before. Let's be honest... you can't go wrong with Oreos and cream cheese!

The third truffle is a lemon-lime sugar cookie truffle. Lemon and lime zest are mixed in with sugar cookie dough, baked, and then crumbled and mixed with cream cheese. So citrus-y and delicious!

Make any one of these and you won't be disappointed... make all 3 and have a party! :) Enjoy!
