I've been reading for years about this fad of turning cookies into truffles. I figured that I wanted to try it! I made some cookies a week ago using this recipe here, and let them become stale for about a day. Trust me this was hard! Cookies don't last for more than about a day at my house, so these were hidden just in preparation for this recipe!

Its a perfect recipe for when you have left over cookies and want to transform them into something new and inventive without wasting the time and resources you used to make them in the first place! So, all you really need are the stale cookies, some chocolate chips, butter and some extra peanut butter!
No pre heating needed! No bake time!

Then melt in a heat proof bowl the butter and the chocolate chips together in the microwave for about 15 seconds and stir until smooth
