Chocolate Chip Cookie TrufflesValentines day is just around the corner!  Do you have a little something for your Valentine? — I hear so many negative comments about Valentine’s Day, but I’ve never been a “hater” whether I’ve had a Valentine, or not. It’s just about acknowledging the ones you “love/like” which ever the case may be. So don’t be a hater of the heart day. Just make or do a little “extra” for someone. It’s not about you, but someone else. Okay, on to the sweets. . .Chocolate Chip Cookie Truffles I searched for this recipe specifically for a friend of mine that I’ve know most of my life, well at least since the 3rd grade. She loves my chocolate chip cookies, so I made her a batch when I had visited her a few weeks ago. I baked a dozen cookies and placed rest of the pre-formed dough balls in the freezer so she could bake them at her leisure. But what I found out is that she didn’t bake any of the them but simply ate the frozen dough! Now, I like cookie dough too, but not enough to eat the whole batch of cookies within two weeks! So, I took a quick survey and found that many people like just eating the chocolate chip cookie dough straight out of the refrigerator or freezer, more than the baked cookie itself!Chocolate_Chip_Cookie_Truffle_Sliced-shot

There’s even a company that has produced a cookie dough that can be baked into cookies and also promotes the dough to be eaten “raw” right out of the container. The dough is safe to eat as it doesn’t contain raw eggs. You can find this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough at Costco. Or you can simply, and inexpensively make your own chocolate chip cookie dough, without eggs, and turn it into a delicious little truffle by adding a chocolate coating – and voila, a Chocolate Chip Cookie Truffle!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Truffles


  • 1/2 cup butter (softened at room temperature)
  • 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 14oz (1 can) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1-2 bag Candy coating: semisweet chocolate chips or white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


Step 1 Cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the flour, milk and vanilla; mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
Step 2
Shape into 54-60 1-inch balls; place on parchment or waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or freeze for 30-45 minutes until firm.
Step 3
In a bowl, melt candy coating, in a double boiler, or microwave, stirring often until smooth. Using a spoon and fork, dip balls in coating and place on prepared baking sheets. (Use one spoon to scoop the dough out of the chocolate and one fork, tap fork on the sides of the bowl to remove excess chocolate). Practice makes perfect.

Step 4
Refrigerate until firm, at least 15 minutes, or pop into the freezer for a few minutes just to harden the chocolate. If desired, re-melt remaining coating and drizzle over candies for a textured effect.
