Cookie Dough Truffles

Cookie Dough Truffles
Well now! Shut the back door.
Do I have a yummy treat for you today, my blog reading friends.
I’m sure many of you have seen recipes for cookie dough truffles floating around the food blogosphere.
 Well, I had to get my hands on some. 
Just had to.
I’m weird like that. 
I can’t have folks making cookie dough and dipping it in chocolate with out me.
You heard me.
Did I not say “shut the back door”?
 Shut it up tight and get to mixin’ and dippin’
mixin’ and dippin’
and tastin’ 
and ooooo-in’
and aaahhhhh-in’
and just plain enjoyin’ the life God gave ya. 
while you dip it in chocolate….
Cookie Dough Truffles
Yield: 48 truffles
Time: about 40 min hands on time + 2 hours to freeze before dipping
Recipe adapted from Mels Kitchen Cafe
1/2 C butter, softened
3/4 C brown sugar, packed
2 1/4 C flour
1  -14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 t vanilla
1/2 C mini chocolate chips
2   -12 oz bags semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 C milk chocolate chips
1 T shortening, divided
1. Cream your butter and brown sugar together until light and fluffy.
2. Add the flour, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla and mix well.
3. Stir in the mini chocolate chips.
4. Shape into 1 inch balls and place on a sprayed cookie sheet. Cover with saran wrap and freeze for 1-2 hours. You want them to be firm here folks. It makes the dipping a lot easier.
5. In a liquid measuring cup (I used the cup that will hold 16 oz, or 2 cups) melt your semi sweet chocolate in the microwave. Only heat it for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating interval.
Add about 2 t of shortening to the chocolate and stir to incorporate.
6. Dip each frozen cookie dough ball into the chocolate and then place on wax paper.
7. Melt the milk chocolate in the microwave and add 1 t shortening. Stir it well and then drizzle it over the tops of the truffles.
7. Put the truffles back in the fridge to set for about 15 minutes.

    You really shouldn't share such irresistably tempting recipes. I have been doing so good and have lost 15 pounds! A recipe like that will put it all back. I can't resist cookie dough in the first place and then to show me a recipe that has it dipped in chocolate!

    Ok, super yummy! I am so addicted to your blog that as soon as you post a new recipe I have to make it right away…especially when it's a dessert recipe! 🙂 So, I made these this afternoon with what I had on hand. Instead of mini chocolate chips I used Skor toffee pieces. I didn't have milk chocolate to decorate with, so mine are just dipped in semi-sweet…and they are TO DIE for!! I'm sharing some with Katherine tonite so I don't eat them all myself. 🙂

    I saw this recipe yesterday and absolutely had to make them! I didn't have mini chips either so I just used the regular sized Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips and then dipped them in milk chocolate and topped them with semi-sweet.

    They are fabulous!! My husband can't stop eating them. And they are even more fantastic the next day. Thank you for this awesome recipe. I'm sure I will make them again soon!

    So last night I came home from work after a really bad day, and my wife had made the cookie dough truffles- they were the best surprise I could have hoped for! The recipe is fantastic and I love her more than ever for finding these amazing treats. Keep posting great food!

    I just found your blog through a friend. She raved about your quick fluffy dinner rolls. While I am going to try those this recipe is an absolute must try. So much so that my husband offered to stop for groceries on his way home tonight to get the ingredients! Thanks.

    I know that I can truffles in any market, but I have some curiosity to get by my own, can you tell if is true that the best way to find truffles is a pig? I read this in other site, the true is that I can't believe this.

    Hi Jamie,
    These look delicious….just 2 quick questions…#1- After they sit in the fridge for the 15 minutes to set up, can they be left out of the fridge after that? #2-how many days in advance can they be made before giving them as gifts, and still taste good?
    Thanks Jamie!

    Hi Jody,
    Sorry it has taken me a few days to get back to you! You can make these a couple of weeks in advance, and then store them in the freezer until you are ready to use them. I'm not sure about leaving them out of the fridge for an extended period of time. My first thoughts are they would be fine, due to the fact there are no eggs in the recipe. Good luck!

    Always love to read stories about cookie dough. It proves how good of a fundraising product it really is.

    Hey Jamie,
    I am just now making them for the first time. Is it really 2 (12 oz) bags of semi sweet chocolate? I just dumped one bag into my 2 cup liquid measuring cup and one bag pretty much fills it up. Maybe I have to do it in batches? Thanks! I made your creamy dreamy fudge last year and everyone thinks I make the BEST fudge ever! It will be our little secret how easy it is! 😉

      Hi Kim,
      Yes, I usually have to heat the chocolate in two batches. I like using the 2 cup liquid measuring cup rather than a 4 cup…just feels like it makes them easier to dip. Hope you loved them and they turned out well for you. 🙂

    Could you clarify shortening for me? Butter, margarine or actual shortening that comes in a brick like thing? Has anyone used butter in place?

      I usually buy butter flavored Crisco shortening in a large tub. It’s found in the baking aisle. Butter or margarine won’t work for this recipe. Hope this helps. Good luck!
