Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Howdy Y’all!

So as promised, I’m here to bring you yet another recipe from this weekend! So one of my favorite sweet treats is the classic chocolate chip cookie… the classic favorite cookie with such a familiar yet complex flavor! So while I made this fantastic cookie for my friends this weekend as well, I really wanted to find a way to re-create this amazing cookie! And alas, the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffle is born! I realize that people have made their own version of these before, but I think mine will give them a run for their money! So let’s get to it…

You’ll need…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffle Ingredients

You’ll need to…

In the bowl of your stand mixer (or a large bowl), beat together your butter and sugars, until it is light and fluffy; about 2-3 minutes. Add your vanilla and whipping cream, and beat for 1-2 more minutes.

Add your flour mixture, and mix until well blended. Then add the chocolate chips, and mix SLOWLY until evenly distributed. The mini chocolate chips are best for this recipe because these treats are bite sized! You can use regular ones if it’s all you have, but I would break the piggy bank and spend the $3.50 for the mini sized chocolate chips… it’s worth it!

Form the dough into 1-inch balls, and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to harden. You might want to put them in the freezer to speed up the process… DON’T! The dough will expand after you coat them in chocolate, and it might cause the chocolate to break! So grab a diet coke (or coke, beer, water, whatever…) and take a break for 45 minutes to watch Dance Moms (or Jersey Shore, Toddlers & Tiaras, any guilty pleasure show…) while they harden up in the fridge!

Once the dough is almost ready, melt both your white and chocolate bark in separate double boilers, stirring constantly while melting.

Melted chocolates... yep I almost ate them straight out of the bowl!

Remove the dough from the fridge, and quickly drop the dough one at a time into the chocolate. Make sure the ball is covered completely, then remove and repeat until all dough balls are covered in white or chocolate bark. Once finished, decorate with extra chocolate chips, or drizzle with extra melted chocolate.

***The chocolate chips won’t stick if the chocolate hardens, so put those on your truffles right after removing from the chocolate.

Place on a pretty plate but simple plate (as not to detract from the perfect-ness of your treats), and serve to your best friends and family… or yourself!

YUMMERS!!! The great thing about this recipe is that it tastes just as yummy as the cookie dough I would normally bake, but it’s a lot safer to eat because there is no egg! Aaaaaaaand, NO BAKING! You know, I’m just saving energy, being green and all that business! Seriously, these babies are sinfully delicious, and terribly addicting! They are a great twist on a classic!

**Store in the fridge! Take them out approximately 20 minutes before eating!

I hope you all enjoyed reading about this fantastic little bite (or two) sized treat! Feel free to leave any comments/questions/suggestions!

Love,

Katie
