I live out in the country where there aren’t any grocery stores.  If I forget something when I go shopping I usually wait until next weeks shopping trip because it’s not worth making a special drive up to get it.  Finally that has changed; recently a Dollar General was built about a mile away.  Now if I forget something all I have to do is make a quick drive up there, get whatever I need and I’m good to go!

The other day I ran up and was surprised at all the holiday stuff they offer at a fraction of the cost of the grocery stores.  I needed to make a dessert for a holiday party and one of our favorites are Peanut Butter Truffles.  I had cream cheese at home and bought everything else at the Dollar General.   I love to make these because they only use a few ingredients and you can whip them up in a very short time.  If you’d like to save some money this year make sure you stop by your nearest Dollar General and have a Dollar General Holiday!

Ingredients are as follows:

1 (16 ounce) package Nutter Butter Cookies
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp. peanut butter
2 Tbsp. milk
2 (9 oz.) bags chocolate almond bark wafers (there’s a picture at the bottom to see the bag)
sprinkles or decorations for the tops of the truffles

Directions:

Crush (or grind) up the entire bag of Nutter Butter Cookies.

Mix in the cream cheese, peanut butter and milk until completely combined.

Roll the dough into one inch balls; I ended up with 32.

Place the chocolate wafers in a microwave safe bowl.

Heat for 15 seconds, take them out; stir and repeat until the chocolate is melted.

Dip them into the melted chocolate and immediately sprinkle on your decorations.

Serve and enjoy!

Here are the almond bark wafers that I found at the Dollar General…I was so happy to find them!
