Truffles – Ride For Family Homelessness Final Day

Dancing Deer cookie coated trufflesSo according to Dancing Deer CEO Trish Karter’s blog, she is finally home after her 1,500 mile bike ride.  Congrats for making it home!!

However, we’re still making delicious desserts with all of Dancing Deer’s mind blowing baked goods.

Before we get to the recipe, I want to do a little housekeeping.  First, today is the last day of Ms. Karter’s ride so we’ll definitely be doing a Dancing Deer recipe.  Then tomorrow, we’re going to take a quick break so I can do a little review of a product I am very excited about, then we’ll come back and I’ll do my make up for the day I missed and my extra special bonus recipe.

Now, with that being said, on to today’s recipe:

Dancing Deer Cookie Coated Truffles!

Who doesn’t love a truffle?  So rich and chocolately and surprisingly easy to make.  Now, add in some crumbled up Dancing Deer cookies and you have a recipe no one will be able to resist.

It’s Dancing Deer Truffle Time!

The truffle recipe is actually courtesy of Mrs. WellDone by way of the  However, my wife went the next step and did the Dancing Deer cookie coating.  I know you’ll like it.

You will need:

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces white or semisweet chocolate chips or pieces
  • Crushed Dancing Deer coconut lime, Dancing Deer chocolate tangerine, and Dancing Deer lavender cookies

The first thing you need to do is make the ganache.  To do that, bring the cream and butter to a boil.  Pour into a bowl containing the chocolate chips.  Mix until the chocolate melts and then put in the refrigerator to set.

Once the chocolate is firm, create balls of ganache of about one heaping tablespoon each.  Gently roll each ball in one of the types of crushed cookies and then put back in the refrigerator to cool.

Then it’s time to enjoy!


When my wife made these truffles, she said the white chocolate was ready to work immediately after it was taken from the refrigerator.  The dark chocolate had to be warmed for a bit.
