Bubble Gum Cookie Truffles

Pin It



There are countless food blogs, cookbooks, magazines, cooking tv shows, pinterest, etc., and that makes it hard to make something totally unique. That's why I love The Domestic Rebel. You think you've seen every possible version of a cupcake and then she makes something like this Cupcake in a Cupcake. I love her creativity and she always has a funny story to tell!
These little treats I have for you today have been inspired by Hayley's Circus Animal Cookie Truffles. They sounded so and yummy, I just had to make them! I changed the recipe a bit and added bubble gum flavor. I wanted to surprise her with this post as my little "Ode to my new bloggy friend" and for some reason bubble gum made me think of me of Hayley. I had never seen bubble gum truffles anywhere and was a little proud of myself for my original idea ;)




Cut to this morning when I read her post for today and what do I see but Bubblegum Fudge!!  I guess there's a reason bubblegum made me think of her, what are the chances?
Anyway, these sweet little truffles will make you feel like a kid again. They taste just like bubblegum - but you get to eat them ;) Dip them in chocolate and sprinkles and you have a perfect little party treat. Little ones are destined to love these!



Bubble Gum Cookie Truffles
by:Back For Seconds
Adapted from The Domestic Rebel's Circus Animal Cookie Truffles

  • 4 1/2 cups animal crackers
  • 1 batch of cream cheese frosting (or 1 can)
  • 1/8 tsp bubble gum oil
  • 24 oz white chocolate almond bark
  • pink food coloring
  • nonpareils
In a food processor pulse the animal crackers until finely ground. stir in frosting, bubblegum oil, and a bit of pink food coloring. Roll into balls and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and freeze until solid. Melt the white chocolate and divide into two batches. Color one batch pink. Dunk the truffles into the chocolate, use a fork to life them out of the chocolate and tap lightly on the bowl to shake off the excess. Place back on cookie sheet and top with sprinkles. let the chocolate set up and enjoy! Best eaten at room temp. They freeze well too, so it's a good make ahead party recipe!

I never even knew that you could buy bubble gum flavoring. How cool! My kids would love these so much more than the "adult" truffles I make.

OH MY GAWD. Good riddance, I am drooling like an animal, these look SO. OUTRAGEOUSLY. GOOD. Those animal cookie truffles were yummy, but adding BUBBLEGUM to them?! Pure genius that I am completely in awe of. You're like, the coolest girl EVER and I'm so glad we're new bloggy BFF's. What a delicious and awesome tribute!! <3
