Add the cream cheese and pulse until incorporated.
Scoop out by the Tablespoon and roll into a nice ball.
Pulse the extra 3 cookies(again until they resemble sand) and place in a small bowl.
Roll the truffles in the crumbled extra cookies to serve as the coating.
Place in the refrigerator for about and hour to set up.

    Oh those look so good… I may have to try them. I managed to make my box of Samoas last an incredible 18 hours this year. LOL

    Yum! Somehow, so far, I haven't bought or eaten any Girl Scout cookies this year. Yay me.
    (It's really just because I haven't seen them for sale anywhere yet, so that could change before too long.)

    OMG you're AWESOME! I would also eat the entire box, and I DO knock them in the knees when they try to sell me those damn cookies.

    Okay, not really. I just say "no, sorry." But I'm not sorry. The truffles sound amazing!

    Thin mints are my total favorite and what better to mix them with than cream cheese, my other favorite? If you add a little mint extract to chocolate pudding, it can get you through when it's not Thin Mint season. I voted for you today! Good luck, girl!

    Wow….those look freakin' AWESOME! My daughter is not allowed to be in the girl scouts for the simple reason that I would be in the closet with the boxes of cookies…and by boxes, I am not talking the individual ones.

    Samoas are like crack! I can't even have them in the house.

    Yeah, it's ALL the fault of the Girl Scouts. No question. :)

    About the ma'am??
    How would you like to be standing in a check out line and have a little girl (probably a scout) say "that old woman is holding up the line" and you look around and she was referring to YOU????

    thanks a friggin lot for telling me how many calories I consumed when I inhaled the box of samoas yesterday.
    the whole box. they should just put on the side. 1 box = 1 serving.
    agreed, they are evil :)

    I don't even make eye contact with the adorable little buggers. My waist can't take their treats!

    Unrelated – you need to have a "search" bar on your blog. It would make my life so much easier. Just sayin'. :-)

    You have my vote & these truffles look delish!

    Hi ma'am, would you like to buy some girl scout cookies?

    Don't feel bad. I single handedly ate an entire box of the peanut butter ones (tagalongs?) at 2am last week.

  21. 21

    OMG! Loved your video! Haha. And so excited to use those cookies I bought for a purpose other than eating plain. I stuck with ONLY the thin mints this year…from several scouts. ;)

    Hahaha, I love your videos. Fortunately for my every expanding bottom, I did not run into any girl scouts peddling cookies this year. I feel your pain though…back when I was in college I remember plowing through an entire box of Tagalongs in one 3 hour drive from my parents house back to school. At least they only come around once a year!
