Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

I wanted to have an extra little surprise for the Boy on Valentine’s Day along with the two other little gifts I’d gotten him, so during my baking frenzy I found this recipe for cookie dough truffles. The Boy and I are both chocolate chip cookie fanatics and chocolate fiends, so I thought “what could be better?!” AND the original recipe suggests decorating the top with more mini chocolate chips so I came up with the idea of having little heart shapes on them. I even bought a little heart shaped box of (crappy store made) truffles, (ate those) and put in the ones I’d made him as an extra little flare. Just showing I care, ya know? But seriously, these are really easy to make and worth every second to show someone you love them.

Read on for the recipe and photos…

Ingredients

(I halved the original recipe which makes 3 dozen. These are the original proportions)

8 oz. unsalted butter at room temperature (2 sticks)
1 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, plus more for heart decorations =)
3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour (basically, just always buy unbleached)
pinch of kosher salt (in a half recipe, I may not use kosher salt…)
12 oz milk or dark chocolate for melting (I used a mix of Ghirardelli Milk and very dark chocolates)

Directions

  • First thing’s first: Make sure there’s room in your freezer or fridge to store these flat for a while!
  • Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the vanilla, flour, and salt until combined.
  • Fold in the mini chocolate chips. Make sure they’re well distributed.

  • Roll out 1″ balls and place on parchment lined baking trays and put them in the freezer for an hour.

  • Melt the chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave and stir until smooth.

  • Skewer a ball with a toothpick and coat in chocolate (you may want to get some spoons involved to avoid the truffles crumbling and to make sure they’re truly covered).
  • Place back on the parchment paper and have someone ready to decorate with more mini chips.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months!


They go quickly, so you may want to make the whole recipe to show everyone the love ; )
