I Love Cookie Dough

Are you a self-confessed cookie dough addict? Do you find it hard to resist a little nibble of dough when you bake despite the dangers your mother warned you about? Well, fear Salmonella no more! Lindsay of Love and Olive Oil has shared her delicious recipe for egg-free Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles with the cookie dough loving world!

One of my favorite things about these cookie dough truffles is that they are not only simple to make but they are super easy to decorate and turn into sweet, adorable, tiny bites of heaven.

Start by creaming 1/2 cup of unsalted butter that is at room temperature, 1/4 cup of granulated sugar, and 1/2 cup of light brown sugar together. With an electric mixer, this will take just a couple of minutes. The goal is for the mixture to be somewhat light and fluffy. Then, add in 2 tablespoons of milk and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and mix.

Cookie Dough Truffles Ingredients

Add in 1-1/4 cups of all-purpose flour and 1/2 teaspoon of salt, combining the mixture at a low speed or by hand. Mix in 1/2 cup of mini semisweet chocolate chips and set the dough in the fridge for at least 30 minutes so that it is easier to work with.

Roll the dough into balls that are about 1-inch wide and line them up on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. You can stop here if you just want to enjoy the cookie dough balls as they are. Just store them in an airtight container in the fridge. If everyone in your household has tremendous will power, they will last for about a week stored this way.

Cookie Dough Balls

If you want to get creative with your cookie dough treats, bust out the candy wafers and sprinkles! I chose to go with blue cookie dough truffles decorated with stars, as part of a super hero themed gift basket I was making. Also, included in the gift basket were Superdad sugar cookies, Superman dark chocolate peanut butter rice krispie treats, and super hero cookie dough pops.

Set the baking sheet with the cookie dough balls in the freezer for about 15 minutes. While you are waiting, you can prep the candy coating by following the directions on the package.

Remove the cookie dough balls from the freezer and one-by-one dip them in the candy coating using a fork. After you dip each one, set it aside on a wax paper lined baking sheet. The tops of the cookie dough balls will not look pretty at this point.

After you have dipped the cookie dough balls… well, I guess we can officially call them truffles now… use a spoon to drizzle some of the melted candy onto the top, covering up any exposed dough. Quickly, before the candy coating dries, add any sprinkles, glitter, or decorations that you would like to stick to the top.

How To Make Cookie Dough Truffles

Now just set your cookie dough truffles off to the side to let the candy coating dry. If you have better things to do than stand guard, I suggest you invest in some flourescent orange cones and police tape to make it clear that the area with the cookie dough truffles is off limits!

Once the candy coating has set, the cookie dough truffles can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week. Enjoy!
