Banana Cream Chocolate Truffles

This truffle recipe was created from ripe bananas and my imagination, and the outcome blew my family and friends away! I don’t particularly like bananas, but I could eat these truffles all day long. —Michele, Lassuy, Orlando, Florida

Ingredients

  • 1 package (14.3 ounces) Golden Oreo cookies
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoons banana extract
  • 1/3 cup mashed ripe banana
  • 1 pound milk chocolate candy coating, melted
  • Dried banana chips, coarsely crushed

Directions

  • Pulse cookies in a food processor until fine crumbs form. In a bowl, beat cream cheese and extract until blended. Beat in banana. Stir in cookie crumbs. Freeze, covered, until firm enough to shape, about 2 hours.

Test Kitchen tips
  • To coat the truffles, we used two forks to dip and turn them in the chocolate coating.
  • To crush the banana chips, place them in a zip-top plastic bag and pound them with a meat mallet or rolling pin until broken.
