Ingredients

  • 12 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 6 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated white sugar
  • 5 graham cracker cookies

Instructions

  • Use a double broiler to melt together white chocolate chips, cream cheese, and heavy cream. You could also use a microwave-safe bowl at 30-second intervals but be careful as white chocolate can burn easily.
  • Once smooth, add in vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, and brown sugar. Stir well and remove from heat. Chill for 3 hours or until firm enough to roll into a ball.
  • Use a food processor (or put in plastic bag and crush) to pulse together graham cracker cookies until they're the consistency of sand. Stir in 2 tablespoons cinnamon and granulated white sugar.
  • Remove truffle filling from refrigerator and roll into balls. Use a melon ball scoop to help with sizing.
  • Roll balls into crunchy cinnamon sugar coating. Place in truffle cups (optional).Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
