These delicious bite sized morsels are quite popular right now. I had seen them around pinterest and on other blogs I follow and had been wanting an excuse to make some, it came in the form of an American themed pot luck dinner last weekend! I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like to “taste test” the cookie dough while they baking but you can’t eat too much, as raw egg can be dangerous (and is an absolute no go during pregnancy). However, this recipe for cookie dough truffles is perfect and you can eat as many as you’d like without the risk of getting sick from raw egg, although I can’t guarantee you won’t get a tummy ache if you gorge yourself on them!
100 grams butter, softened
¼ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar, packed tightly
3½ tablespoons cream
½ teaspoon vanilla paste
1¼ cups all purpose flour
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup dark chocolate drops
¼ cup milk chocolate drops
200 grams milk chocolate melts
In a the bowl of your mixer (or in a large bowl if using hand held electric beaters), beat butter and sugars with your paddle attachment until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Mix in cream and vanilla.
Sift in flour and salt and mix on a low speed until combined.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Using a small ice cream scoop make 24 even balls.
Place rolled balls on a wax paper lined baking sheet and place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes or if like me – you don’t have room in your freezer – place in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight.
Melt your chocolate for the coating in the microwave in short burst stirring in between or in a double boiler.
If you want to cover the balls in chocolate dip each ball in chocolate and then place on a wax paper to set. Alternatively you can just drizzle the top with chocolate, to do this just place melted chocolate in a plastic zip lock bag and snip a small hole in the corner, then drizzle.
Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to a week – but I really don’t think they’ll last that long!
Delish! If you like these then keep an eye out over the next week as I have a second cookie dough truffle recipe coming your way…
