No-Bake Cookie Truffles Your Kids Will Love To Make


I am always encouraging parents to get in the kitchen with their kids. Well, this time I am encouraging you parents to let your kids take over the kitchen to make an easy, no-bake, delicious Israeli-inspired treat.

All you will need is a few bowls, a wooden spoon, and maybe a little supervision. Let your kids do the work—you sit back and enjoy the treats with a nice cup of coffee.

These treats can be made dairy-free (use margarine and almond milk), nut-free, and even vegan. They are little bites of sweet, crunchy, chocolate-y heaven.

Note: Biscoff cookies can also be called European lotus cookies. You can find them at most major supermarkets and even Trader Joe’s carries their own brand of them.


22 Biscoff cookies

¼ cup sugar

5 Tbsp cocoa powder

3 Tbsp milk

1 tsp vanilla

3 Tbsp softened unsalted butter

½ tsp cinnamon


Shredded coconut

Chopped peanuts, almonds, pistachios or other nuts.


Place Biscoff cookies in a plastic bag and crush until you have small crumbs. (You can also use a food processor, but kids generally like banging stuff.)

Dump cookie crumbs into a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients.

Roll into 1 inch balls and place onto a parchment lined platter.

Roll each ball in sprinkles, shredded coconut, chopped nuts, or cocoa powder. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour or overnight.

Yields 1 dozen.
