Introduction: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

With this eggless chocolate chip cookie dough recipe, you can eat it right out of the bowl without worry!  Even better, you can shape the cookie dough into little balls and dip them in chocolate.  I just. . . I don't know what else to say. What else do I need to say?  It's chocolate chip cookie dough truffles! 


Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed (90g) light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups (150g) all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)
  • 3/4 pounds chocolate, melted


Directions

In a large bowl cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. 

Turn the mixer to low and beat in vanilla and milk.

Gradually add flour and salt on low until combined.

Stir in chocolate morsels and pecans, mixing well.

Shape into 1-inch balls (I used a small scoop). Place on a parchment lined tray; chill until firm.  (you can see that I did not chill mine long enough, and they lost their nice round shapes when they hit the warm chocolate. but who cares!)

Temper chocolate in a double boiler or microwave. Using 2 forks, dip cookie balls into chocolate and roll to cover. Tap off excess chocolate on side of bowl.  

Place on waxed paper and chill to set for at least 1 hour.  These keep best in the fridge, especially in the summer time.  

Makes 32.  You know, if you don't eat half of it before you dip them.  Let's just tell people it makes 24, ok?

Enjoy!

Great instructable. I just made it, and put it in the fridge... I shall give a full report tomorrow.

Sorry for the horrid image, it makes you put one for the I Made It post, and I was lazy so I took my webcam... that's my hair on top.

Wow, high praise from someone who actually knows their truffles! These are pretty awesome, but they wouldn't rate anything near what we've seen from you. Still, slum it one day and try them out! ;)

I've been making these regularly for a while. They are a big hit! Friends, family, and coworkers can't get enough!

Superb! The dark chocolate on the outside is the perfect balance for the rich dough inside. I must admit that I think I have eaten cookie dough with raw egg in it...I hope for the best.

When I made the dough and let the balls set to cool I, well, sampled it a bit, but I I did not like the taste - I cannot even describe why, I found it strange and coul not in it on a single ingredient, but... Well, I was not too enthusiastic about them. But then I coated them in chocolate, and... let's just say the number of truffles is going down rapidly... Thanks!

Hi, I have the same issue. Without the egg and baking soda it just doesn't have that cookie dough taste. The chocolate more than makes up for those missing ingredients though.

You temptress! Hi, I'm Jodi and I am a cookie dough addict. My first time, I would have to say was at the hand of my loving mother. She would let me lick the bowl, raw eggs and all. I have tried to break my addiction to the point where I couldn't make any cookies at all, but would break down and make the dough. I would resolve to not eat the dough, I would bake the cookies, but I was licking my fingers and the spoon while putting the dough on the cookie sheet. Then between baking scooping it right out of the bowl. Pretty soon after only 2 or 3 dozen done and the bowl would be empty. The recipe makes 4 to 6 dozen. Now I need all my will power just not to make these easy tempting doughy, chocolatey balls. Oh, the agony! Oh woe is me!!! Oh ye Temptress!! ;o} ))))

Those look so good.
I bet they would be good dipped in white chocolate.
Or peanut butter chips instead of chocolate.
Om nom nom...
