do-si-do truffles

Girl Scout Cookie season has got to be one of my favorite seasons EVER!!  I admit that every year I buy a couple of boxes, but I may have over done it this year by purchasing 15 boxes.  Don’t worry because I have a good reason why….I just wanted to buy 15 boxes.  Is that a good enough reason?

Like with most things, I can’t leave well enough alone, so I made some of the cookies into truffles.  Yes, you read that right, TRUFFLES!  I used what used to be called Do-Si-Dos (Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies), cream cheese and chocolate.  It was as easy as pie truffles!

I must warn you that these little balls of goodness are addicting, you definitely can’t eat just one.  But I do encouraging sharing, sharing is always good and it makes people happy.  I love making people happy!
