Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles
Author: Betsy Cohen
Prep time: 30 mins
Total time: 30 mins
Ingredients
  • 16 tablespoons (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1¼ cups plus 3¼ cups semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. For the chocolate chip cookie dough truffles:
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Combine the butter, brown sugar and sugar together in a large mixing bowl. Beat until creamy, about 3 minutes, scraping the bowl down as needed. Add in vanilla and then the flour. Lastly, blend in 1¼ cups chocolate chips.
  4. Use a small cookie dough scoop (2 teaspoons per scoop) to scoop the dough onto the prepared pan. Freeze for at least 30 minutes before dipping the scooped dough into chocolate.
  5. Melt the remaining 3¼ cups chocolate chips. Dip the frozen cookie dough scoops, one at a time, into the chocolate. Cover with chocolate and use a fork to transfer the truffles back to the parchment lined pan. Freeze until the chocolate is set. Transfer the truffles to a plastic freezer bag and store in the freezer until needed.
  6. Betsy's tidbit:
  7. The amount of chocolate needed for dipping the truffles will vary, depending on how thickly you coat the filling.
Notes
There is additional time needed to freeze the truffles.
