Cookie Dough Truffles
Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite dessert in the world. And because I love them so much, I love to make fun variations like these cookie dough truffles, chocolate chip cookie bars, a cookie pizza and chocolate chip cookie pie. Yum!
I made these chocolate chip cookie dough truffles for a few friends last week and they were gone within minutes! They only take about 10 minutes to whip up and then 30 minutes to freeze. They make the perfect mini treat for a get together.
I topped them off with a little sea salt, chopped nuts and sprinkles. They were seriously divine and the perfect chocolate fix! I just love cookie dough, so these truffles are great because there’s no egg in them, making them perfectly safe to eat. Just like edible cookie dough. ;)
Place them in the freezer for whenever you need a little late night snack. These will definitely be made again. Easy and delicious… can’t beat that!
How to Make Cookie Dough Truffles
Scroll down for the printable recipe and video tutorial.
Step 1: Prepare the dough
In a bowl, mix together butter, sugar and vanilla. Then slowly mix in flour just until combined. I like to start with about 1/2 cup, then add a little more in increments until the texture reaches the “cookie dough” consistency. Then stir in desired amount of chocolate chips.
Step 2: Roll into balls and freeze
Form into 1-inch balls and place on a wax paper lined baking sheet. Place pan in freezer to harden for about 15-30 minutes.
Step 3: Melt the chocolate
When the cookie dough balls are firm, melt the chocolate in the microwave at 50% power until smooth.
Step 4: Dip in chocolate
Using a fork, dip the balls into the melted chocolate. Tap the fork against the bowl to remove any excess chocolate. Place back on wax paper and sprinkle on desired toppings immediately (before the chocolate hardens).
Step 5: Freeze and serve!
Place truffles back in the freezer until chocolate has hardened completely. Then place them on a plate or cake stand to serve. Enjoy!

I notice you have milk chocolate chips for the dough, and semi-sweet for the coating. Is there a reason behind this or just a personal preference? Would either be ok to use for both inside and the coating?
Just personal preference, you can use either! :)

I’m so glad you enjoyed them! I’m glad to know they work well with gf flour.
