So, I'm not gonna lie. A treat like this is a little bit crazy. So crazy that it could have only been created by an sweet genius The Domestic Rebel.
The most fun part of this whole thing was throwing those Circus Animals in the food processor and watching those suckers spin. Sounds morbid I know, but I was that kid (actually I'm that adult) who finds joy in biting the heads off my gummy bears.
After a good spin the crumbs were combined with some cream cheese frosting to get everything all good and coated so they can be shaped into cookie balls. Freeze your cookie balls for 3 hours then dip them in the white chocolate you melted.
Make sure you melt your white chocolate to a runny consistency this will make the coating process a LOT easier. Reserve half your melted chocolate and dye it Circus Animal Cookie Pink. Set your dipped truffles on some wax paper and add your rainbow nonpareils while the coating is still wet!
I love how these sweets end up looking like the original thing with their pink and white coating all the way down to the rainbow nonpareils on top.
