Can we talk proximity for a moment?
Some people have NO idea what this means unfortunately, especially when you’re out shopping.
I cannot tell you how many times I could be minding my own business standing in line and feeling someone else’s breath on the back of my neck. If I can hear you breathing, you’re way too close to me, buddy.
And my new personal favorite: people standing right next to me when I’m checking out at the grocery store. They’re practically behind me while I’m entering my PIN and it makes me SO uncomfortable.
It’s pretty much to the point where I want to ask them if they’re buying my groceries for me since they’re standing so damn close. That, or give them a really long, inappropriate hug for having no sense of proximity.
And how come it’s always the smelliest people who get close? Like, why can’t a really hot guy wearing really yummy cologne get close to me? It’s always some old dude who smells like old socks or someone who hasn’t used a bar of soap in a decade. WHY, CRUEL WORLD, WHY?
And when you try to move up and away from them, they never take the hint. They just inch closer and closer, to the point where they’re practically piggy-backing you, and you just want to turn around and kick them in the groin for invading your personal bubble.
I don’t know about you, but I need a decently-sized personal bubble around me at all times. Maybe I should hire my own security team who envelopes around me at all times. Or maybe I should start smelling like old socks… maybe then, people will avoid me.
Anywho, personal problems aside, let’s talk about these Biscoff Taffy Truffles. You guys know about Biscoff right? It’s a spread made of ground Biscoff cookies that has a similar texture to peanut butter but has a spicy-sweet flavor, similar to graham crackers. It comes in crunchy and creamy form, and today the creamy version is used for these irresistible truffles.
The taffy cookies remind me of my grandma, who always had them on hand in her pantry whenever I’d visit. They’re rectangular cookies made by Mother’s brand, and they have a graham cracker-y tasting outer shell with a smooth, sweet taffy filling. In a word? Totally divine. And combined with the Biscoff spread and a little cream cheese, they transform into bite-sized perfection.
Psst – these would make a great last-minute Santa gift – just sayin’!
- 1 pkg Mother's Brand Taffy Cookies, finely crushed
- 6 oz cream cheese, softened
- ½ cup Biscoff spread
- 1 pkg vanilla CandiQuik or almond bark
- Toasted coconut, for sprinkling on top (optional)
- In a large bowl, combine the crushed taffy cookies crumbs, the cream cheese, and the Biscoff spread. Using a large spoon or your hands, begin mixing the ingredients together to form a cohesive dough. Mixture will be sticky!
- Roll into Tablespoon-sized balls and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Freeze for about 20-30 minutes or until firm.
- Once firm, melt your vanilla CandiQuik until smooth, according to package directions. Coat each truffle into the CandiQuik, coating completely, and allowing excess to drip off. Return to the baking sheet. Top with sprinkles or toasted coconut, if desired. Allow to set before serving.
Easy, delicious, and totally irresistible, these Biscoff Taffy Truffles will soon become a new favorite!
Have a super sweet day!
