Nutter Butter was a treat
Everybody liked to eat
Add cream cheese it makes them Nutter Better!
Over Christmas I worked. In my department, we have a holiday schedule that allows everybody to get six days off...either at Christmas or New Years. I decided that since I don't have my own family and my brother would be here anyway to be with his fiance, that I would work Christmas. It was a busy six days...I was on call (overnight at the hospital) every other day for six days! I did, however, continue to take on call snacks! The first day I took nutter butter truffles, a take-off of oreo truffles. I love peanut butter, prefer it actually over chocolate. So, I thought I'd try the well known oreo truffle with nutter butters. Well, they were good but not quite as gooey (a good thing) as the oreo truffles. I think the cream in the middle of oreos is moister that the peanut butter stuff in the middle of nutter butters. I ended up adding about 1-2 tablespoons of cream cheese icing to the mixture and that helped a lot! In the end, I still got compliments on them and they were gone before the day was over (with only about half of the number of residents as normal!). Nutter Butter Truffles
1 package Nutter Butter cookies
1 package cream cheese (I use the Nufschatel)
1/2 package chocolate bark - use what you need (the melting chocolate that comes in rectangular containers)
Crush cookies in a food processor or a bag using a rolling pin. Soften cream cheese and stir into the cookies. Roll mixture into walnut sized balls. Place in refrigerator or freezer to firm. Melt chocoate bark. Roll balls in the chocolate to coat. Allow to set and enjoy!
