Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

20 Feb

Chocolate chip cookie dough truffles. Need I say more? These little beauties came across my radar while on Pinterest a few weeks ago. This may be the BEST no bake dessert ever created. Who doesn’t love cookie dough and because this recipe doesn’t contain egg, you don’t have to worry about possible salmonella poisoning, like you do with traditional cookie dough (but seriously folks, if you’re not eating cookie dough because of the raw egg you are missing out on life!). So without further ado, here’s the recipe!

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup milk
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

14 oz dark chocolate candy coating

Directions:

Beat butter and sugars and in large bowl until light and fluffy. Add milk and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt, until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.

Cover and chill dough for 1 hour.

Chilled cookie dough

When dough is firm enough to handle, form dough into 1″ balls and arrange on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. I used a cookie dough scoop to help do this, the dough didn’t get as warm or sticky by using the tool. Place sheets in freezer and let chill for 30 minutes.

Cookie dough balls

Now comes the hard part…the dipping.

Melt chocolate candy coating in a double boiler or in microwave according to package directions. I used NESTLE Toll House Chocolate Chips and melted them in a double boiler. Using forks or a dipping tool like a toothpick, dip cookie balls into candy coating to cover. Make sure to tap the fork on side of pan to remove any excess coating, and return to waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Chill until set. Store, chilled, in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

These truffles are super easy and quick to make and honestly if you show up to a party with these you will be a rockstar.

And there you have it, probably the BEST no bake dessert ever.
