Valentine’s Snickerdoodle Dough Truffles

Originality. That tends to be the single goal that I aim for. In the midst of chocolate chip cookies, macaroni and cheese, and meatloaf…I just want to be original. This, my dear baking friends….is just what I mean. It’s the ultimate combination of cookie dough, snicker doodles, white chocolate, and cereal. So, since there is cereal in them…they must be healthy! Want to learn how to make this healthy and nutritious snack? Well, you are in luck! Grab your Valentine, and make some….others will melt at your creativity. Tell them it just “came to you.” It came to you like a light bulb in the darkness, like the dove on the ark, or like Paula Deen just found a new way to use a stick of butter.

Start with some cinamony-delicious cinamon toast crunch.

 Put it in a ziploc bag and hit it, or roll it, or throw it against a wall. You could also chew it, grind it in a blender, or hit someone with it. There are ways to crush it good. Be creative.

Next, make up a nice batch of egg-free snickerdoodle cookie dough.

 Pat it down, and roll it out about an inch think.

You’ll have to freeze or refrigerate the cut-outs for a while to make the coating easier. Then, melt up some white chocolate and dip, decorate, and repeat!

I made a few extra special ones for my Valentine….mainly this cute heart cut-out. (Made simply by using a heart cookie cutter) 

Well, like I said, since I have a Valentine (and one that treats me like a princess, might I add), I thought that I should give him a pre-Valentine’s Day Valentine. So, I boxed it up real pretty, and added a cute little bow and heart. I hope he likes it :) However, the stinking guy won’t even tell me where he is taking me for Valentine’s Day. So, if you read this, please hassle him. Hassle him hard. I need to know. I mean…no one wants to see me at a restaurant with an unfamiliar menu. I need to know, so I don’t make a fool of myself. Help me!

 Happy almost Valentine’s Day! Make these for your Valentine!
