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

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
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.
Shape mixture into 1-in. balls. Dip cookie balls in candy coating; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Top immediately with banana chips.
Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.
Test Kitchen tips
To coat the truffles, we used 2 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.
