Cookie Dough Truffles

I wanted something special to make for the youth retreat that Adam & I were privileged to lead this past weekend, so I decided I would make truffles. I made these cookie dough truffles and also some s’mores truffles that you will see later this week. They were the biggest hit! Everyone gobbled them up so super fast. Everyone was asking how to make them. The best part is there are no eggs, so no worries on them not getting baked. You seriously need to make these! I found these on Baked Perfection a while back. She made hers into pops, but I just opted for truffles. Hope you enjoy!

Cookie Dough Truffles
Makes about 20-24

1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
dash of cinnamon
1 stick butter, softened (it is even okay if it is melting a little)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cups mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 package chocolate candy melts

In a medium bowl combine the flour, salt, and dash of cinnamon.
In a second larger bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract until creamy. Slowly beat in the flour mixture until smooth.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Roll the mixture into quarter size balls and lay on cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Chill for several hours or freeze for 15-20 minutes until firm.

Melt candy melts in the microwave per directions on package. (30 sec intervals, stirring in between.)

Gently dip the cookie dough ball into the candy coating by placing it on a fork and rolling in the chocolate until coated. Once covered remove and softly tap the fork on the side of the bowl until the excess chocolate falls off. Place on parchment or wax paper until set.

  11. I tried making this a few days ago and mine were super crumbly and granulated. I went over my measurements and tried the recipe again with the same results. Thoughts on what I might have done wrong?

    • I’m so sorry they didn’t work for you! The only thing I can think of is maybe if the butter needed to be softer so it mixes in better. Or try chilling the dough before you roll it into balls. Hope that helps!
