Cookie Dough Truffles made with sprinkles, vanilla, and cream cheese are a great after school treat. Or, you know.. pretty much anytime!

My kids love sugar cookies. Of all the cookie possibilities, sugar cookies are requested most often in my house.

Of course, they are like me, they love the fluffy sugar cookies with lots of fluffy frosting. And sprinkles.

One of my most popular recipes on my blog is Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles. It’s seriously like eating a bite of peanut butter cookie dough. Dipped in chocolate. Filled with Reese’s Pieces.

I figured it was time to satisfy my kids’ cravings with some of their favorite cookie dough! There is no egg in this dough, so don’t worry when they come back for seconds (or thirds)! Don’t forget to load these up with sprinkles too!

If you’re looking for another delicious, kid friendly treat, try making some Cookies and Cream Fudge. It’s so easy… and it has Oreos. Doesn’t get much better than that!

If you're looking for more Funfetti fun, make sure you check out my recipe for Funfetti Cookies, too! Or, if you're looking for more truffle love, try these Monster Cookie Dough Truffles.
