Let's go beyond the classic cookie dough and let's create an epic cookie truffle recipe with flavors that nobody will be able to resist! I also wanted to include a twist, a fun a de delicious twist by just using Good Phats as my base, a chocolate chip cookie mix that will make things ever easier.

Also gluten free and it's a game changer for this recipe... making it a double chocolate! Cinnamon, vegan cream cheese and a cookie base... this is paradise!
