Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

ATTENTION: No eggs were harmed in the making of these cookie dough truffles.

People are really freaked out about eating raw cookie dough because they are afraid they are going to get sick from the raw eggs. I haven’t exactly let that fear stop me from shoving cookie dough into my mouth. I have had other cookie dough truffles and although they were good, the texture and taste didn’t match that of the real thing. Well these do…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Ingredients

  • 8 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1½ lb. semisweet or milk chocolate, coarsely chopped (Baker's chocolate)
  • Mini chocolate chips (for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Combine the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the flour, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until incorporated and smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the mixture has firmed up enough to form balls.
  2. Shape the chilled cookie dough mixture into 1-1½ inch balls. Place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Cover loosely, transfer the pan to the freezer and chill for 1-2 hours.
  3. When ready to dip the truffles, melt the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Dip each chilled truffle, one at a time using a fork, coating in chocolate and shaking gently or tapping against the bowl to remove the excess. (If at any point during dipping, the cookie dough balls become too soft, return to the freezer to chill for 30 minutes.) Transfer to a wax-paper lined surface. If using mini chocolate chips for garnish, sprinkle on top quickly after dipping each truffle before the chocolate sets. Once all the truffles have been dipped, store them in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

  13. oh man!! theses look SO good! I used to eat raw cookie dough all of the time, until I had kids – and I have to admit that I’m a little worried about the raw eggs – I am SO making these.

  14. I’m soooo making these today! They look great :)

  15. hi i tried making them last night. looks great but they are very very sweet. is there any substitute for the condensed milk?

  16. @IHayat,
    Yes, these are sweet. I’m not sure of a substitute for sweetened condensed milk. Maybe just use less of it?

  17. Hi! I have not tried your recipe, though I have done some very similar. I just had a question about the chocolate part. :) Whenever I make these they look really pretty, but as the chocolate hardens, it starts to crack. Sometimes like the cookie dough is trying to escape the chocolate! Any idea how to fix that?

  18. @saras,
    Shoot! I’ve never had this happen!

  19. Fab!!! Loved making them and tasted yummy :-)
