Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

CCCtruff


There are so many different recipes out there for truffles, I knew there had to be some for chocolate chip cookie dough truffles. And there are. But I didn't make any of them; I made my own. Because if there's one thing I know, it's chocolate chip cookies.

I may not know anything about power drills and car batteries. But cookies? I'm quite knowledgeable. If I took a class about cookies, I'd be at the head of the class.

I made up a basic chocolate chip cookie dough and used pasteurized eggs, good vanilla, and browned butter. I can't stop browning my butter. It seems like I use browned butter in everything! The nutty flavor of the butter goes well in this cookie dough.

After rolling the dough into balls, I froze the dough balls in the freezer for thirty minutes before dipping them into melted chocolate. Then you just let them dry before feasting.

These are so good! I love eating chocolate chip cookie dough, don't you? Now... can you imagine eating chocolate chip cookie dough dipped in chocolate? It's amazing!

I left a plate of these on a table at work. Literally two minutes later I walked back by the table and they were ALL gone! It was crazy! Nothing I've ever made and brought into work has gone that fast.

So yes, I strongly believe you should make these sometime soon. They're pretty easy to make, and people will love them!

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go watch another news story about Charlie Sheen.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Davidson's Safest Choice Pasteurized Shell Egg Yolks
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1 3/4 cups mini chocolate chips, divided use
4 teaspoons shortening

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat; continue to cook for 2 minutes, whisking constantly, until butter foams and turns light golden brown. Pour butter into large mixing bowl.

Add sugars, vanilla and salt to butter, and mix using a mixer on medium speed, until well combined - about 2 minutes. Beat in egg yolks until combined - about 1 minute. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour until well combined. Stir in 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips until combined.

Roll cookie dough into 24 balls. Freeze for 30 minutes.

In a medium bowl, melt remaining 1 1/4 cups mini chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave, stirring twice, until melted and smooth - about 1-2 minutes.

Dip cookie dough balls into chocolate and place on waxed paper to dry.

Makes 24 truffles

  3. These look amazing Emily. That first picture reminds of those pools of balls that I used to fall into when I was a kid at places like Chucky Cheese. As a adult, it sounds way better to jump in a pool full of these truffles.

  4. Just reading the title of this post made me salivate and feel very excited. Cookie dough in chocolate? Yes please!

    Forget you taking a cookie class. I think if you gave a class on cookies, it would fill to capacity within the first few minutes it was open.

  5. Do NOT pollute your mind with Charlie Sheen. Instead go back into the kitchen and make another batch of these. I'll get my address right out to you!

    I know some may not understand the shortening in the dipping mixture, but you're so right to add it. It makes the chocolate tons more dippable.

  7. I just bought some of those safe eggs the other day, and have been fearlessly enjoying egg sandwiches with runny yolks! I'm so glad safe eggs are becoming readily available in most stores...

    My sister/coblogger made a version of these last year with sweetened condensed milk, but these sound even better. I can't wait to make them myself!

  25. I have made these before using sweetened condensed milk, but I'd like to try your recipe using the pasteurized eggs. I bet the flavor tastes more like cookie dough.
