. gluten-free snickerdoodle truffles .

by Amanda @ .running with spoons. on October 29, 2013

I think we can all agree that a warm kitchen is one of the most comforting places to be around this time of the year. The darker days melt away in the soft glow of a kitchen light, while the colder weather becomes an afterthought in the warmth that radiates from an oven. And if you’re not using an oven, as is the case in today’s recipe? Well then you can take advantage of the ease and convenience of no-bake baking and enjoy your treat alongside a warm drink while you’re curled up on the couch. It’s what I would do (read: what I did) anyways.

Gluten Free Truffles

I hope you don’t mind me posting a recipe that’s probably better suited for the spring or summer, but I got the idea of truffles in my head and didn’t want to wait until next spring to make them — I even walked to the store in close to freezing temperatures just to pick up a bar of white chocolate, and it was so.very.worth it. I suppose I could’ve used more seasonally appropriate sprinkles, but this was the only available option at the store I was at, and I wasn’t about to make another trek through the Arctic to find different ones.

Gluten Free Truffle

Besides, snickerdoodles have cinnamon, and cinnamon is a fall food, so I’m not completely off the mark… right?? And even if I am, I have a feeling you’ll forgive me my flippant treatment of seasonal eating after just one bite…

Snickerdoodle Truffles

Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle Truffles
Prep time
Total time
Yields: 12 truffles
  • 1.5 cups of crumbled gluten-free snickerdoodle cookies (I used Udi's)
  • 3.5 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 3.5 oz white chocolate
  • gluten-free sprinkles
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Using a blender, food processor, or your hands (depending on how soft your cookies are), process snickerdoodles until they become very fine crumbs. Add in cream cheese and mix until fully combined. The dough should be moist enough to hold together when you press it into a ball.
  3. Using a tablespoon, shape the dough into 1-inch balls and place onto parchment lined baking sheet. Freeze for ~30 minutes.
  4. Melt white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl, stirring periodically to ensure no clumps remain.
  5. Using a toothpick, dip each ball into melted white chocolate, gently tapping side of bowl to remove any excess. Place back onto parchment-lined baking sheet and immediately top with sprinkles. Repeat until all truffles have been coated.
  6. Refrigerate for ~15 minutes, or until the chocolate has set.
  7. Store truffles in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, or freeze for up to 1 month.

Gluten Free Snicker Truffle

I have to be honest with you guys — this may just be the most dangerous recipe I’ve ever made. Between”quality testing” both the pre-coated dough and the final product, I somehow managed to make at least 1/4 of the batch disappear within the span of… an hour? And I think I deserve a pat on the back for being able to stop at that! I mean, between the smooth and creamy interior, and the subtly crunchy chocolate shell, I basically stood no chance. None at all.

I used gluten-free cookies (Udi’s snickerdoodles) for these, but feel free to use any kind of snicker doodle or sugar cookie if you don’t need them to be gluten-free. I also opted for white chocolate for the shell because I didn’t want the taste of cocoa overpowering the taste of cinnamon and sugar. Good choice. I wasn’t sure I’d liked white chocolate, but dang — it tastes better than I remember!ย And if you don’t have sprinkles, you can combine 1 Tbsp. of sugar with 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon and sprinkle the truffles with that, but I have to say that I highly recommend the sprinkles — they just make life better ๐Ÿ˜€

Happy Tuesday, friends! This week has been crazy so far, but I’m glad to be rid of the funk that was hanging over met last week. I hope you guys are doing well too!

Do you like white chocolate?

These look amazing. I’ve had M&Ms for dinner tonight – at work late … And am at risk of a sugar crash. Might need to make these when I get home to keep me afloat :)

I just ate a square of chocolate (well, maybe 3), which pales in comparison to these bad boys!!! Hahah, my food somehow disappears during quality testing as well. Also, cinnamon is on my radar 12 months of the year, so I guess that means so are these snickerdoodle balls of deliciousness. I never eat white chocolate, so this might be a good excuse to broaden my horizons.

Never ever? Ohh girl, you’re definitely missing out! It’s kind of false advertising since there’s absolutely nothing chocolatey about it, but it’s a nice change once in a while. I definitely recommend getting your hands on a Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Cream bar if you can.


4 Becky @ Olives n Wine October 29, 2013 at 6:24 am

Confession… I’ve never been the biggest fan of snickerdoodles. I think it’s because I always expected them to taste like a Snickers bar as a kid and it just never panned out that way ๐Ÿ˜‰ I was thinking that these looked quite Easter-esque so it’s funny that you mentioned the sprinkles, hehe :) I’m definitely going to have to try these with a sugar cookie, anything to do with a truffle is pretty much amazing!

Butโ€ฆ butโ€ฆ the swirls of cinnamon and sugar!! ๐Ÿ˜› I think I love snickerdoodles so much because they remind me of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which is basically the best food there is.


6 Nicole @ FruitnFitness October 29, 2013 at 6:29 am

I love snickerdoodles, they are for sure one of my top favorite cookies! I have never made cookie truffles like this. An old coworker of mine always used to bring in oreo ones, they were always a big hit. I’m worried if I tried to make them they would look horrible and not perfect like these.

Confession: putting sprinkles on things instantly makes them look 100x better ๐Ÿ˜‰


8 Khushboo October 29, 2013 at 6:39 am

Snickerdoodles AND white chocolate?? I die!! These look so yum and I love the colorful sprinkles. Maybe it’s not appropriate for fall, but I appreciate the extra color :-). As a vanilla lover, I am also a huge white chocolate fan. I can only handle small amounts at a time as it’s quite soon. Have you tried white chocolate kit kats? Too.die.for!


9 Amanda @ .running with spoons. October 29, 2013 at 11:43 am

I haven’t! I’m pretty sure that I’ve seen it somewhere, but I can’t remember where. I’ll be keeping my eyes open for it!


10 Liz S. October 29, 2013 at 6:45 am

It’s dangerous in the best way possible ๐Ÿ˜€ And I LOVE white chocolate – it’s so underrated.


11 Sam @ Better With Sprinkles October 29, 2013 at 6:46 am

So I don’t think I’ve ever had a snickerdoodle. Not one that I can remember, anyways…is that a really bad thing? I’d definitely break that with these truffles though, how can you go wrong with anything dipped in white chocolate and coated in sprinkles? (obviously, I can’t resist the sprinkles bit).
As for chocolate, I don’t discriminate…I have my favourites, but really I’ll eat any kind ๐Ÿ˜‰ And the last sweet I ate was a slice of ice cream cake from my freezer…so good.

The darker days melt away in the soft glow of a kitchen light” << Yes. That describes how I feel every winter/fall night perfectly. I just could never find the right words to describe how it looks to myself! These look delightful. I love snickerdoodles (which I didn't realize until last Christmas) but these sound like a great adaptation to the Oreo balls you make with cream cheese and crushed cookies.

20 Lindsay @ Lindsay Weighs In October 29, 2013 at 7:25 am

Summer, fall, winter… you don’t need any excuses to make truffles, they’re 100% appropriate at any time of the year ๐Ÿ˜‰ And I’m on board with you about the whole cinnamon and the holidays thing. I wonder how these would be with pumpkin cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese?! I might just have to test that out sometime…
Thank you for posting such an incredible, mouthwatering recipe!!

23 Amanda @ .running with spoons. October 29, 2013 at 11:53 am

Pumpkin cream cheese actually sounds pretty incredibleโ€ฆ Although I would probably add a little extra cinnamon so that it didn’t mask the flavour of the snickerdoodles too much.


24 Parita @ myinnershakti October 29, 2013 at 7:58 am

I’m sitting next to my mom right now, and she said she wishes she could go into the computer scrren and pick a truffle to eat! I guess that means I have to make these for her soon! Not that I mind. They look so delicious…and simple. My kind of recipe :) And now I’m think of what other kinds of cookies I can transform – dangerous!


25 Holly @ EatGreatBEGreat October 29, 2013 at 7:59 am

These truffles sound amazing and they look so pretty too! I’m not always a fan of white chocolate on its own – I find it too sweet, but if it’s mixed into something or coating something like this, I like it much more. I’m definitely wishing I was home instead of at work right now, so I could buy the ingredients and make them! ๐Ÿ˜‰

And, I totally agree with you on being in the kitchen this time of year! I do most of my baking around the fall/winter season, and one of the things I love to do is open the oven to let the warm air into the room once I take the baked item out. Somehow this is so comforting for me!

I don’t love white chocolate but I do eat it – just prefer dark or milk instead. These look so yummy, so cute and so simple. I love making truffles and when I have the patience, I make them in cupcake shapes using a candy mold.

I honestly never thought these would only include 4 ingredients. They look way fancier than that. But I LOVE a simple recipe, and this looks like a darn good one. I have a feeling that once I started eating these, though, that I definitely would not be able to stop! Also, why is it that sprinkles make everything better? They are just so fun, right? I must still be a kid at heart! ๐Ÿ˜‰

32 Cassie October 29, 2013 at 9:11 am

This is such a fun idea… I’ve never seen snickerdoodle truffles!

You could always just leave the white chocolate out ๐Ÿ˜‰ Even just mixing cookie crumbs with cream cheese is surprisingly delicious.

43 Rachel @ Running Rachel October 29, 2013 at 11:12 am

Yum! If I had a Pinterest, I would “pin,” but instead I’ll just write this down on loose-leaf and get to work on making sure these get whipped up in my kitchen soon. I love love love white chocolate, it’s second only to dark chocolate, and definitely beats milk chocolate. My favorite cookies are white-chocolate-reese’s-filled-peanut-butter cookies (with gf flour, of course), and I agree that the white chocolate works great with cinnamon flavors, and avoids overpowering the delicate flavors of snickerdoodles (second favorite cookies, btw).

Seriously, great idea. And so easy! I’m glad you’re over your funk too, especially if it means your creative mind starts thinking up tasty things like this! Thank you!

45 Shashi @ http://runninsrilankan.com October 29, 2013 at 11:40 am

Oh Gawwwsh!!! These truffles sound like trouble! And, from MY history with YOUR recipes, they are probably HIGHLY addictive! This easy recipe list of yours isn’t making things easier on me….
These look GORGEOUS – cinnamon and white chocolate are a perfect combo – regular chocolate would have had a conflict of interest with the cinnamon for sure! I do love white chocolate, but the fact that it isn’t full of the good stuff found in dark chocolate, limits my freestyle eating of it!
Sweet thing I ate was one of my 3 layer bars last night…recipe coming soon….

White chocolate definitely isn’t my favourite kind but I don’t discriminate so I wouldn’t mind you shipping me some ;). They look incredible and the non-seasonal sprinkles add a cute touch.
And really, why would cake truffles be a summer-only treat? Actually, I made my own cake pops for the first time ever for the past silvester party and truffles for Christmas. I clearly have no idea of seasonal treats – unless we’re talking Christmas cookies. Because having these all year round would make them less special and we can’t do that, right?!

Thanks Amanda- I’m using some of the cream cheese I got on a bagel right now with honey- good combo right there! But I have a feeling the snicker doodle white chocolate cream cheese combo will slightly hedge it out xo


52 Rachel @ Undercover Diva: A Sitcom October 29, 2013 at 2:45 pm

I don’t really like white chocolate. It’s too sweet for me…and there’s not really any chocolate in it! It’s all sugar and milk (I learned that at a chocolate factory this summer). I love DARK chocolate. Darker the better. I had a mini candy bar with lunch today. Super delish :)

Do I like white chocolate?

Is this even a question? I.LOVE.WHITE.CHOCOLATE. LoveloveLOVE white chocolate. I love white chocolate more than I love ‘actual’ chocolate! lol Hershey’s Cookies and Cream is my favorite candy bar (it shares a spot with Snickers, but given the choice, the white chocolate will always win)

Another thing I love: snickerdoodles. Putting them together though? GENIUS. These look amazing, needless to say. Well done you!

Last sweet thing I ate? I’m currently hooked on these no bake ‘bars’ that I make with quick oats, Honey Bunches of Oats cereal, honey, and nut butter. I just mix everything up, refrigerate it for a while, then cut ’em up. They’re SOOOOO GOOOOOD. I’m playing around with different nut butters, cereals, and extracts to mix up the flavors- they’re the perfect thing to eat when I’m in need of something sweet post-dinner.

This recipe. Ok, coming from someone who has made multiple batches of the almond fudge, I’ll need to give this a go purely to test the dangerous theory ๐Ÿ˜‰ Although subbing the snickerdoodles for something else!

PS- I think I don’t mind being a ‘later’ commenter- I’ve developed a habit of reading blogs during my breakfast and spoons being one of them- I think it’ll be against tradition to read it before bed.

Oh my gosh, these look so good! I seriously adore white chocolate. And snickerdoodles. So obviously these are kind of perfect. Are those Udi’s cookies available in Canada?

The last sweet treat I had was sorbet with whipped cream for dessert at the dietetics conference I was at yesterday. All the snacks and lunch were provided that day – it was awesome. I think I could definitely get used to going to those kinds of conferences haha.

They should be! I’m pretty sure I’ve seen them in the speciality section of a few grocery stores. And if you can’t find those, then the soft cookies from Enjoy Life would probably make a pretty good substitute.


65 Emily October 29, 2013 at 8:08 pm

Um, truffles are acceptable year-round. Just sayin’. (:

I’m a white chocolate fanatic. I always have been, actually. And cinnamon…well, we all know how 99% of bloggers feel about cinnamon. You can count me in that percentage, of course.

I am QUEEN of cookie dough balls. Whenever there is a party, everyone just ASSUMES I’m bringing some for of them. Chocolate chip, peanut butter, oreo, chocolate chip peanut butter….you name it. I spent a longgg time sitting around trying to think of a different flavor to make, but I ended up not being able to think of anything. I can’t believe I didn’t think snicker doodle! Silly, silly me.

Looks scrumptious! (That word isn’t used nearly as much as it should be)

I am ashamed to admit that as many times as I’ve seen (and made) Oreo truffles, I have never ONCE thought of making them with other cookies! You, my friend, are a flippin’ genius! And I kinda like the springtime sprinkles! White chocolate is entirely UNDERrated…it just has to be paired with the right thing to help it shine…and you CANNOT go wrong with cinnamon and sugar!

Last treat I had was a piece of my coworker’s cranberry apple nut bread last night at work! It was SO good and stuffed to the max with fresh apple pieces! Loved it!

You could totally make these more seasonal looking with some orange food dye in the white outer coating and some of those adorable pumpkin and bat-shaped sprinkles that they have out around Halloween!

I don’t remember the last sweet treat I ate… I think last December I had some banana soft serve? Bahaha. It’s just been all meat and vegetables for me right now. I guess delicata or buttercup squash counts, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Such a gorgeous recipe though Amanda! Perfect for any time of the year. Especially Easter.

Your recipe is ingenious and photos are gloriously beautiful. Other than that, I’m pretty much speechless (except for those words) ๐Ÿ˜€ Though I’ve ever dip chocolate in any desserts, but this white chocolate coating look so purrty that I might just have to try dipping with white chocolate soon. Lovin’ your blog!

Very nice. The funk has been lifted. And it’s no wonder. These look like afternoon delight. Light, fluffy and perfect with the sprinkles and white chocolate, which is fabulous. I remember too; fondly. I’d jump seasons for these.

Just use red sprinkles or silver decos & they’re Christmassy! I may make these for the bake sale at our church Xmas bazaar!
