I promise my next post will be much healthier, but in the meantime, have a truffle. These chocolate chip cookie dough truffles are so easy you’re going to feel like you’re cheating, like you’re getting way with something……
Perhaps two posts on truffles in a month is a bit excessive,  and Yes,  I know this recipe is holiday tradition and has been made and posted about a thousand times. I don’t care. I just adore truffles and cookie dough and I’m doing it anyway!”
I belive that most of us as children had the expirience of eating cookie dough.
I vividly remember one time, I was actually a teenager when our grandmother was making her famous homemade cookies. My brother and I were sitting at the couter watching her as we anticipated that first bite of one of those freshly baked cookies. As we were waiting we thought we would try some of the cookie dought what was left in a bowl. OMG it was delicious, after a couple of tastes, it was almost as if we couldn’t stop.

I remember repeatedly licking that unbaked cookie dough off of the spoon thinking ” why are we doing this – why can’t we wait until the cookies come out of the oven ? – They will certainly taste better than this unbaked dough.
However, the cookies were amazing! They tasted great too, but cookie dough tasted great also 🙂

If you’re still reading this please stop.  Stop right now and go make these.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 30-35
  • ½ cup (1 sticks) butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1 pound dark chocolate candy coating
  1. In a bowl combine butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  2. Beat in the flour, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until incorporated, beating well after each addition.
  3. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 1 hour, or until firm enough to handle.
  5. Shape mixture into 1 inch balls by rolling a spoonful in the palm of your hand, since the dough is sticky, roll your fingers into flour. This will make it easier to roll.

  7. In a bowl melt dark chocolate candy coating.
  8. Dip the cookie dough balls into the chocolate and place on parchment paper.

  10. Once set, remelt remaining candy coating.
  11. Place in a small baggie and cut a small hole in one corner.
  12. Carefully drizzle chocolate over truffles.
  13. Store in the refrigerator and serve cold. These can also be frozen for longer storage.

        The reason many people freak out about eating raw cookie dough is the presence of uncooked eggs, which under certain conditions can lead to various types of bacterial poisoning. If you note: the recipe has no eggs at all. Just sayin’

        I was thinking the same thing when I read the title of the recipe, which is why I decided to read through the recipe and look for eggs as an ingredient… I was quite surprised when there was no eggs… Now I am wondering how close it will taste like cookie dough!

          It’s really not to bad, although I put a half a package of vanilla instant pudding in mine. It took the condensed milk taste out . I had no problem getting people to eat them 🙂

            You just saved the day with your tip. The mix wasn’t coming together for me even after standing for an hour in the fridge. It tasted like condensed milk too. I just happen to have 1 box of instant vanilla mix. It looks right now and tastes great! Thanks again.

            When I put half a pack of pudding I found the inside dough was very granular is there something I did wrong

    Wanted something that tastes close to See’s truffles, but more affordable. Decided it’s time to give homemade truffles a try. Simple to make and wonderful result. This recipe is a keeper! Thank you!

      Any chocolate chips or baking chocolate bars you find in your grocery store should suffice. As others said, you can also get the melting chocolate wafers from a craft store. I used Candiquik, which is sold at Target. It has the advantage of coming in a microwaveable tray.

      I am going to be making this with gluten free flour! I make TONS of things (I have celiac disease) and can tell from looking at this that you really should use something like the 1-1 baking mix that bob’s red mill makes. I’ve made other recipes and tried other flours- I’ve tried king arthur’s (too thick and dense), that pamela’s baking mix (WAY too expensive, but ok taste), and others, but most come out too chalky. If you had a baking mix, I’d bet it would work better than just straight up flour (as gluten free mixes that state “replacement for flour” really are a replacement). Mixes contain multiple flours and xanathan gum to hold everything together.

      It doesnt matter if it is raw cookie dough there is this that will make you sick. Eggs are what you get sick from.

      1. No, then they would lose the ball shape
      2. No eggs, no problem
      3. Salmonella comes from infected eggs. The likely hood of someone having an infected egg bought from a store is less than 10%
      4. It’s no different than eating cookie dough ice cream.

      1. Jennifer

        The chance of getting an egg from a store that is infected with salmonella has to be MUCH less than 10%. Every single time I’ve ever made chocolate chip cookies in my 46-year life, I and everyone I know has eaten the raw dough, and we’ve never gotten salmonella. I’m not saying it’s safe; I’m just saying it’s safer than most things in life–and more delicious.

    Would love to receive more of your wonderful recipes for candies, cakes, cookies. These truffles are wonderful !
    For the coating, i melted Nestles Semi-sweet chocolate morsels (cholate chips} and dipped balls in the melted chocolate.

    As an American living in the UK, I find some of these recipes so frustrating, because they’re tempting, but a lot of the ingredients aren’t available over here. Just having to convert all measurements can be pain enough, but not finding ingredients makes it impossible.

    This is not a cookie dough batter with eggs. so naturally no baking is required. . Delicious cookie I will make over & over again. Thanks for sharing…

    Somehow my cookie dough ball melts when I put it in the hot chocolate? How can I avoid this or am I doing something wrong?

    just made these using 1 cup almond flour and 1 cup hazelnut meal (ground hazelnuts) instead of the flour…sitting in the fridge now, but from what I tasted…YUMMY! To all those asking if you can use different flavor chocolate chips.. of course you can.. make it however you like it! Adjust ingredients to your preference.. don’t be afraid to try it 😉

    Did not know until today that Eagle Brand makes both a caramel and chocolate flavored sweetened condensed milk – would be a great substitute for the regular called for in this recipe, methinks.
