Ingredients

  • 16 oz package Nutter Butter cookies
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt, optional
  • 10 oz chocolate melting wafers
  • Sprinkles, for topping
  • Sea salt, for topping 

Instructions

  • Add the Nutter Butters to a food processor and process until a fine crumbs forms. Reserve 1 tablespoon of crumbs for topping, if desired.
  • Add in the cream cheese, sugar, and peanut butter and process until combined. Add salt, if desired.
  • Use a medium cookie scoop to portion out the mixture and roll into balls. Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet and continue until all of the mixture is in ball form.
  • Add the melting wafers to a bowl and melt on 30-second intervals stirring between each addition until smooth.
  • Use a spoon and fork to dip each of the balls in the chocolate and gently slide off the fork onto the parchment paper to set.After every 4th ball, top the balls with Nutter Butter crumbs, sprinkles or sea salt before the chocolate sets.
  • Allow the balls to set at room temperature for about 30 minutes until hardened or place in the fridge for about 10 minutes to speed up the process.
  • Store balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. 

Notes

Make sure to use whole fat cream cheese for best flavor and results.10 ounces of chocolate chips may be used instead of melting wafers but you will need to add ½ teaspoon of coconut or vegetable oil to the mixture so it doesn’t get too hard to bite through.
These balls are pretty firm right after mixing and there is no need for them to chill before being dipped unlike other similar recipes.
I like adding salt to these balls, because I think it adds to the overall flavor, but it can be left out.
