More About This Recipe

  • Ever wonder why truffles are called truffles? Believe it or not, the origin of this dessert’s name comes from…a fungus. That’s right! The original “truffle” is a round-shaped fungus that is often considered a delicacy, internationally. Two of the most common types are white truffles and black truffles. You’ll see them used in recipes for truffle oil to enhance pasta recipes, topped on burgers, mixed into risotto or even used in egg breakfast recipes. So how did dessert truffles become associated with this very different food? The original dessert truffles—in the form of small, round chocolate balls flavored with cocoa or rum—got their name from their similarity in shape to the original truffles. In this sugar cookie truffles recipe, we went beyond the traditional creamy chocolate dessert truffle and used sugar cookies as the base instead. We then dunked each in melted almond bark and finished with holiday-colored sprinkles on top for a pretty dessert that’s reminiscent of classic dessert truffles. Made with only three ingredients, this is the perfect recipe for when you’re low on time, but need to prepare an impressive-looking treat for a crowd. Love this twist on sugar cookies?
