Candy Corn Cookie Truffles
These sorts of two-bite desserts are handheld wonders. The filling for these candy corn truffles, doesn't require any cooking or baking at all. That said, it is handy if you have a food processor to make combining the filling a bit easier. When I first developed this recipe for Parade, Nabisco had a limited edition candy corn flavor of Oreo cookies. In the time since they launched that seasonal product, they've brought other limited edition flavors to the grocery shelf but, not that one that I've been able to find. I thought I would try the recipe using Golden Oreo cookies and found the flavor to be very similar, so that we could enjoy these year after year.
Tips and Tricks for Making Candy Corn Truffles
- A food processor is my kitchen tool of choice when making these truffles however, you may be able to use a hand mixer in a pinch. Necessity is the mother of invention.
- Candy corn is sticky so, don't fret if it sticks to the knife when chopping, patience is key.
- It's very important to chili these truffles so they'll hold their shape when dipping into the candy coating. It's fine to leave them on the pan and covered with plastic wrap overnight, if needed. Just don't skip this step.
- While I use Candiquik as the coating, you could use white almond bark too, if you prefer.
- It's important to allow excess coating to drip from the truffles before placing onto the pan to set. If you don't, you may run short on coating. Have an extra package on hand just in case.
- Store finished truffles chilled in an airtight container.
