Chocolate Chip Cookie Holiday Remix

I don't just remix thrift store finds. I love the classics and I love making them my very own by adding a personal touch. Chocolate chip cookies are a classic. They're delicious and easy to make especially with Nestle Toll House cookie dough. I gave this classic a new spin by adding the festive flavor of candy canes and turning the cookie into a decadent truffle.

This is a wonderful small gift idea for your neighbors or as a special after school snack for the kids. The recipe is adapted from truffle recipe I found on the Nestle Very Best Baking Pinterest page.

Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookie Truffles


1 Nestle Toll House refrigerated chocolate chip cookie bar dough
1 cup crushed candy canes (You can whirl in a food processor or beat with a hammer. Half will go in the cookie dough mix and half will be used on the outside.)
4 ounces cream cheese
1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
1 cup Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate morsels

Step 1: Bake cookie according to package directions but leave in the oven about three minutes longer. You want them to be crunchy but not burnt. When cooled, use a food processor to finely grind cookies.
Step 2: Use a hand mixer to combine ground cookies, crushed candy canes, cream cheese and vegetable shortening. Once it starts to stick together, you can role into a ball. Refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour.
Step 3: Microwave chocolate morsels until melted. Role truffle in melted chocolate then dip in the crushed candy canes. Allow to set 30 more minutes. Done!
