I was grabbing some ingredients for another recipe and I saw this box of mini Nilla wafers that I bought for an accent to a game day recipe. I literally used 14 of them and had almost a full box on hand and knew I was probably going to end up throwing them out. Uh no...I'm not having it especially when the Mr's co-workers are whining about no treats from me this year. So I turned potential trash into easy peasy treasure.
Here's what you'll need:
A box of Nilla Wafers (mini or otherwise)
2 tsp cinnamon (divided)
1/4 cup Almond or other shelf stable milk
1/4 cup (or less) sugar (granulated or sparking)
Add your wafers to a food processor or blender.
Add 1 tsp of cinnamon.
Pulse until they are crumbs.
Add 1/4 cup of almond milk to the crumbs.
Give 'em a whirl until the dough pulls from the sides.
Check the consistency by squishing it in your hand to make sure it sticks together and won't crumble apart when rolled.
Ready your cinnamon sugar by putting the sugar and remaining cinnamon in a bowl and stirring until combined.
Grab a small cookie scoop to keep portions in control.
Squish the dough in your hand, bringing out the moisture in the dough, and roll it into a ball.
Plop them into the cinnamon sugar to coat and repeat.
Serve on a pretty plate and watch them disappear! Little bites of classic cookie heaven in a truffle!
