My neighorhood recently started passing around a traveling treat plate. So, when you receive the plate of goodies from a neighbor, it is then your turn to make a treat and take it to the next neighbor. A fun way to get to know your neighbors! I received the plate last week, so I decided to make these Christmas Sugar Cookie Truffles to pass onto another neighbor.
I had never made them before, but they ended up being so easy to make, and a lot of fun too. Something different! There are hardly any ingredients to buy, just four things, assuming you don't have any of them already. I was really happy with the way they turned out. I actually made a few batches. I sent a batch along with Josh to work for his employees to snack on - trying to help him be a cool boss :) We are having a party at our house soon, so I ended up making some for that too. Hopefully everyone likes them as much as Josh and I did - of course we had to taste test!

- 3 tablespoons cream cheese (room temperature)
