  • Notes:

    • To make vanilla cookie truffles, use vanilla sandwich cookies in place of chocolate and White Candy Melts in place of Light Cocoa.
    • Wilton Jimmies Sprinkles can be mixed into the vanilla sandwich cookie filling for a fun surprise. After adding melted Candy Melts to the truffle filling, fold in 2 tablespoons of jimmies.
