Cookie Dough Truffles – Perfect For A Party

by Alli

In October, I start planning all of my holiday parties and menus and that means it’s almost time for some cookie dough truffles.  

I normally make Oreo Truffles, but I reached way back into my recipe archives and resurrected these cookie dough truffles and I know everyone will love them!

The inside of the truffle is soft and gooey,  filled with mini chocolate chips and chopped walnuts, and tastes just like cookie dough. It’s not harmful because there are no raw eggs! (Of course, I’ve eaten the real deal many times!)  The outer chocolate shell is crisp and full of chocolate goodness.

Cookie Dough Truffles

Cookie Dough Truffles Ingredients

  • unsalted butter
  • brown sugar
  • all-purpose flour
  • sweetened condensed milk
  • vanilla extract
  • mini semisweet chocolate chips
  • chopped walnuts
  • semisweet chocolate candy coating (I love to use Candiquik)

Tips For Making Cookie Dough Truffles

When you get all the ingredients mixed together, the dough will be a little soft.  Don’t be alarmed.  It hardens in the fridge.

 These days I use a cookie dough scoop to make these truffles. It’s so much easier than shaping them into balls. 

 Once they have been refrigerated for 1-2 hours, they come out firm. Then I dip these balls in the chocolate and let harden. So, so delicious! 

Cookie Dough Truffles

Helpful Hint: I have tried various ways to dip the balls into the chocolate and what works best (for me) is to use a fork placed under the cookie dough ball. Dip into chocolate to completely cover, scrape the bottom of the fork against the edge of the chocolate container to remove excess chocolate, and gently place the truffles on the waxed paper to harden.

Another Helpful Hint: You can make these cookie dough truffles a few days in advance and store them in the fridge.  That’s my kind of party food!  

Once the truffles hardened, I drizzled a little chocolate onto the tops to make them pretty. I’ve also drizzled white chocolate before for a little contrast. It’s all good!

When I was growing up I always told my mom that she should have a restaurant! She always replied with, “Then it would be work and not fun.” I totally agree! But thanks for the vote of confidence!
