Cookie Butter Truffles

An official Blizzard warning has been issued for Virginia. And man has the chaos already begun. Now being from Massachusetts, I'm good with snow. But I have to admit since I've moved here I've become accustomed to the warmer winters and not a lot of snow. But when snow does happen here, the whole area pretty much shuts down. So needless to say things here are amusing for me during times like these - except for their plowing. It's awful. I should really work for VDot and teach them all how to plow. Oh yes, my dad taught me to plow when I was 16....and I loved it.  

So after multiple trips to the store this week by us, we are all set to bunker ourselves in Friday and not leave the house until we have to.  And since BP had requested some snacks today, I figured I was going to make these. 

Now we all know how I feel about cookie butter, and the fact that I'm planning an upcoming wedding and trying to lose weight, I must be crazy for making these. But what else would a weekend snowed in watching Netflix and football need? These. Absolutely these.  Trust me when I say you need these in every way, shape and form. 

I mean just look at them!! And the best part is, no baking. So yes, go get yourself some cookie butter and try not to eat all of these in one sitting. I'm pretty sure these won't make it to Friday between myself, BP and Papa C.

Cookie Butter Truffles

2 cups graham cracker crumbs (2 sleeves or 18 crackers)
1 jar cookie butter
1 package white chocolate melting wafers

1.  In a medium size bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs and cookie butter until evenly mixed. (A food processor can also be used for this as well).
2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper. Using a cookie scoop, scoop the mixture onto the prepared sheet.  Repeat until all the mixture is gone. Chill in fridge for at least 30 minutes.
3.  Melt wafers according to package. Dip each ball until evenly coated and let set on parchment or wax paper.
