Strawberry Truffles Recipe

Amanda Powell | A Cookie Named Desire

These fun strawberry truffles are only three ingredients making it an affordable and easy way to make a fun dessert! Easily customizable to change up the flavors. Strawberry lemonade truffles, anyone?

I am truffle crazy. I used to be addicted to these chocolate truffles to the point where I am sure I ate almost an entire bag in a night.

So…. I don’t buy them anymore.

Now I allow myself a polite truffle or two when I am offered in company and let social embarrassment keep me at that very strict limit.

Sometimes, however, I am in a situation where I need to make truffles like when I need them to decorate a cake for a friend or my sister needs to have a bunch of treats ready for an office party.

Then I like to go to a really simple recipe for truffles that taste amazing and are completely foolproof each and every single time.

Plus, they are quick to make which is perfect because it seems that no one ever predicts when they need truffles and it’s always a last minute truffle emergency.

Who knew such a thing even existed, but it happens more than you’d think.

My favorite variety are these strawberry truffles. They are so good in the summer and are the most requested truffle I make.

All we need are a couple of ingredients: vanilla sandwich cookies, cream cheese, and freeze-dried strawberries. The freeze-dried strawberries are maybe the hardest thing to find, but almost all grocery stores carry them.

And if worse comes to worse, nothing wrong with picking up some cereal that has them as an ingredient and picking them out.

Been there, done that and it really wasn’t bad at all, ‘cause we don’t need a whole lot to make strawberry truffles. Freeze-dried strawberries pack a lot of flavor.

I often get asked if fresh strawberries can be used instead in these strawberry truffles, but sadly, they can’t. Strawberries have a ton of water content, so they break down the mixture for the truffles, making it impossible to work with.

Even roasting your strawberries to extract some of the water and intensify the flavor wouldn’t work. We 100% need freeze-dried here. You might be able to get away with dehydrated strawberries, but I have never tried it that way before.

If you want to mix things up, you can try changing the cookie flavor. Lemon sandwich cookies make a strawberry lemonade flavor which is pretty amazing.

Or you can use chocolate sandwich cookies (with a little more freeze-dried strawberries) for a chocolate covered strawberry truffle.

You can also drizzle some melted white chocolate in the mix for a strawberries and cream flavor.
