Cookie Dough Truffles are the most delicious way to indulge in small portions. Homemade cookie dough dipped in melted chocolate chips, left to harden into a chocolate shell. You’ll keep coming back for more of this single-bite dessert!

Truffles have never been better! Dip it in chocolate and get one luxurious bite. We love it! Cooke dough truffles are definitely up there in the list of favorites. Pure, unadulterated cookie dough, with the “chocolate chips” on the outside. You can easily rationalize eating a dozen of them. It’s not like you’re eating a dozen cookies, it’s only 12 bites! 

Dipping truffles can be a messy affair, but here are a few tricks to help make it a bit easier:

Trick #1 Put toothpicks into the filling balls. This makes it much easier to dip them in since they have a handle. Remove the toothpicks after you’re done dipping all of them and then just put a dab of melted chocolate where the toothpick was so the whole ball looks dipped.

Trick #2 Freeze the filling. With this particular recipe, we pop the dough balls into the fridge for about 20 minutes before dipping them. This keeps the filling from falling apart with the weight of the chocolate.

Trick #3 Use a rubber spatula to assist in dipping. This will allow you to easily spread the chocolate to cover the whole ball as well as remove any excess chocolate so there are no big drips.

  • How to Make a Double Boiler:

    Don’t have a double broiler? You can easily DIY one! Bring a few inches of water to a simmer in a saucepan. Place a metal or glass bowl on top of the saucepan. Find the bowl that fits just right, you want it to be snug. Make sure the water in the saucepan is not so high that it touches the bottom of the bowl. You want some space between the water and bowl. The steam from the simmering water will heat the bowl and melt the chocolate chips inside the bowl.

  • Chocolate Options for Cookie Dough Truffles:

    You have a lot of options when it comes to chocolate. Not only do you have milk, semi-sweet, and dark chocolate, but you can also choose between chips, wafers, and bars of chocolate. Feeling really adventurous? How about white chocolate, butterscotch, or peanut butter chips?

  • Cookie Dough Safety:

    We did not include eggs in this recipe, so it is safe to eat without cooking. If you are worried about the raw flour, you can always toast flour before using. Spread your flour out on a sheet pan and bake it in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes, or toast it in a large skillet on the stovetop over medium heat for 5-7 minutes.

Hi, did I miss something? Is step one supposed to have the butter? Step 3 says slowly add flour and step one says to mix the flour so I’m going to assume step one should say butter, yes?


So no baking of the dough?
