Pecan Sandie Truffles

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!

Pecan Sandie Truffles

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.

Pecan Sandie Truffles

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.

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!

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?

I love pecan sandies. Will definitely be trying these only dipped in milk chocolate. Not a fan of white chocolate 😊
