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
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!
