Growing up, our dad would always request circus animal cookies for his birthday and father’s day. It was a gift we could afford as little girls, and it was always exciting seeing the look on his face (which was probably a little exaggerated) when he opened them up. I was reminded of this sweet memory as I was at my in-laws last weekend. My cute mother-in-law made me a Valentine, and there were circus animal cookies inside. I got thinking about it, and decided they could easily be made into a yummy truffle! I used the recipe for our no-bake thin mint cookies, and substituted the thin mints for circus animals!
