Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Forgo Baking Altogether With Cookie Dough Truffles

Most will admit that cookie dough is the best (if only) reason for making cookies, but these incredible cookie dough truffles from The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook skip the whole nonsensical baking part. There's no egg in the batter. Instead, heavy whipping cream helps bind the dough together. To shape the truffles easier, pop the dough in the freezer to firm it up. Also, try wearing powder-free gloves while rolling the balls to prevent your hands from warming up the dough. It will be difficult not to scoop up little bite-fuls while making, so plan on doubling the recipe so you can snag some guilt-free.

Notes

If the dough does not come together, beat in more whipping cream, one teaspoon at a time until a moist dough forms.

Try coating the cookie dough in milk chocolate candy coating or white chocolate candy coating.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Ingredients

  1. For cookie dough
  2. 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  3. 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  4. 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  5. 2 tablespoons milk or cream
  6. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  7. 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  8. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  9. 1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
  1. For chocolate coating
  2. 8 ounces dark chocolate candy coating

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugars with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, two to three minutes. Mix in the milk and vanilla. Stir in the flour and salt and mix on low speed (or by hand) until incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips. Cover and chill dough for 30 minutes or until firm enough to handle.
  2. Form the dough into one-inch balls and arrange them on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Place the sheets in the freezer for at least 15 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate candy coating in a double boiler or microwave, according to package directions, being careful not to overheat it. Using a fork or dipping tool, dip the truffles one at a time in the candy coating to cover. Tap the fork on the edge of the bowl to shake off the excess coating, and return the truffles to the baking sheets to set. If you have any leftover coating, transfer it to a piping bag or squeeze bottle fitted with a small round tip and pipe decorative lines over top of truffles — or simply drizzle coating with a fork for an abstract finish.
  3. Refrigerate in an airtight container. Truffles will keep for up to one week, though I dare you to make them last that long.
