These Pecan Sandie Truffles are a simple blend of Pecan Sandies, cream cheese, pecans and powdered sugar. Dip them in vanilla Candiquik and sprinkle with pecans for treat with a creamy, nutty flavor!
As you know, I’m becoming less of a picky eater. It could be that over the past year I have been more adventurous with foods, or just I’m growing to like more foods. I can handle nuts (as long as they’re not whole) in a lot of things and actually enjoy the nutty flavor. I can also tolerate tomatoes in soups, but that’s about it for tomatoes. I think I would like Pico de Gallo, but mom and dad secretly don’t want me to like it- because that means more for them. The bad thing about it is, as I’m growing out of my picky-eating stage, my sister is still in the middle of it. Every day, it seems, she doesn’t like a kind of food, and it changes every day. She claims she doesn’t like stuff like donuts or pizza. Who wouldn’t like donuts and pizza? I’m pretty sure I’ve never said that in my life.
All that said, I’m glad my taste buds are developed enough to enjoy these Pecan Sandie Truffles. Yes, the main focus is pecans, but more importantly, pecan sandies. Those are probably my favorite store bought cookies (besides oreos) because they taste pretty good even though they are hard and crumbly.They’re a different kind of good than a gooey homemade chocolate chip cookie.
These Pecan Sandie Truffles are so easy to make they’re dangerous. Want to know what my dad said about these? When he bit into one of these truffles, he said “What are these? They’re amazing!” (We make him try our goodies first and tell us what he thinks before we tell him what they are.) “These are Pecan Sandie Truffles,” we told him.
A simple “wow” was all he said in reply. Oh yeah…he also said, “I want another one.”
Yes, the nuttiness in these truffles is amazing. I love how I taste pecans, but it’s so soft when you bite inside….just like cookie dough.
There are 5 ingredients total in this recipe. Pecan sandies, powdered sugar, cream cheese, vanilla candiquik, and crushed pecans. You can make these fairly quickly and easily. In one afternoon you can make these and eat them all before anyone notices. You’re welcome.
I love pecan sandies. Will definitely be trying these only dipped in milk chocolate. Not a fan of white chocolate 😊
I am making these for a party. How early can I make them?
I wonder if you could dip the pecan sandies in butterscotch chips? My family loves butterscotch and I don’t have a recipe for any candy with butterscotch. What do you think?
Yum! I get together with a friend at Christmas to make truffles for gifts. I think these need to go on the menu!
Love pecan sandies. Will make for my niece’s graduation in May. Yum-o.
OH YUM!!! Just pinning and sharing as one of this weeks great features at Freedom Fridays With All My Bloggy Friends!!

Forgive me for not knowing, but what is “candiquik” ?
Hi Maddie! I’m stopping over from Let’s Get Real today. Your truffles do look really delicious. I have a saying, “Everything tastes better with pecans.” Your truffles look like proof that I am right. LOL!
G’day! Looks terrific!

Stopping by from Create It Thur Party. This is so yummy looking and I must give it a try. I LOVE Pecan Sandies. Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow
Oh my goodness, these look delicious! I love pecan sandies. I’ll definitely be making these yum. You’re sister is the only person I’ve heard in my 30 years life that doesn’t like pizza. She’s missing out. 😉 that’s crazy. LOL.
These look amazing & simple to make. I always remember my mom buying Pecan Sandies when I was a kid, I’ll definitely have to make these for her (in fact…mother’s day is coming up fast!). Thanks for sharing 🙂
