  1. Truffles! YUM. These look so Delicious. I like all kinds but have never made these using Nutter Butter Cookies.
    Will be making these for sure.
    Was wondering just how well they will ship in the mail. I would like to make some and send from Texas to Ohio.

    1. Hi Colleen,
      I think they would hold up just fine as long as they stay cool. You might want to put an ice pack in there. I keep them refrigerated since they have cream cheese in them.

  2. Hi! I’m your cousin,William I’m 7 and 8 in 5 days. You can call me Will or William. I live in Pennsylvania. My grandma lives in Arkansas. My grandma is coming to see me in 2 days😁. I Love the sugar cookies with chocolate Hersheys on them. I can’t have peanut stuff, so I just made them sugar cookies.

    1. Hi William,
      I am glad you tried them with sugar cookies, that’s a great idea. I will have to try that for Christmas! I hope you have the best visit with your Grandma. Thanks for the comment, you made my day πŸ™‚
