cookie dough candyOh baby.

Oh yes.

You can have your dough and eat it too. No raw eggs here.

WOOOOOO~HOOOOO! (spell-check hates it when I put my words in there)

So, these are no-bake, addictive and may even help you win friends and influence people, rumor has it.

It makes a lot, so be sure and share. My girlfriend said if you go to the fire station with cookies they will let your kid check out the fire truck. I might go do that with these. Fire trucks are cool.

I told you it makes a lot. There was still dough after this batch.

You don’t have to dip them, either. Honestly dipping is a pain in the booty. I am not a huge fan of dipping things. This was much easier. Yay for being lazy!

cookie dough trufflesBut, I did dip some, too…. had to do something with all that chocolate. I know you understand.

To make these you will need:

 

Cookie dough truffles

1/2 cup softened salted butter

3/4 cup light brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 (14oz) can of sweetened condensed milk

2 1/4 c flout * this is a word spell-check always gets me back with{grr} flour is a great substitute for flout-whatever flout is. Hmmm!

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

So easy:

combine (in a bowl,)  the butter, sugar,vanilla,and sweetened condensed milk. Add the flour and chocolate chips.

Now, you may be able to form this into balls at this point. I however, could not- I think it’s the summertime in Florida problem. That’s why we have refrigerators. Chill your dough if you need to. Maybe a half hour. Roll into walnut sized balls. Place balls in the freezer for 2hrs.

Melt  12 oz chocolate chips with 1 tbs shortening or butter. To melt, place in a microwave at 25 second intervals, stirring between each. Be careful- overheated chocolate can seize up. Just get it till it’s starting to melt and stir away, the chocolate will continue to melt and smooth out. My little tip. I have ruined a lot of chocolate in my days.

Now, you can dip the balls using a spoon- or fill pastry bags with the melted chocolate and drizzle. You don’t have pastry bags? Okay, in this instance a plastic bag should work. But, next time you see some of those disposable pastry bags…get them. They are so worth it.  :) So, drizzle or dip and store these babies in the fridge. Unless you live in an igloo. But- I don’t think igloos have internet, do they? I have never seen an igloo in real life. Do they still exist? Hmmm… I need to google that.

  1. Damn those look good. I’d eat them frozen, but I like frozen cookie dough.

    You should also go see the fire people because fire trucks are indeed cool. Our local dept is mostly full of people who live around here, and they’re always grocery shopping for their shifts and taking the trucks with them. You can usually walk up and say hi and they’ll let you look around.

  2. Oh wow! Love the looks of these truffles! My kids and grandkids will LOVE these. I will be making these for our next family gathering Michelle! :-)

  4. I made these last week, largely for my Mama’s birthday–and they were a HUGE hit! I made some changes, but everyone loved the recipe!!

  5. THESE WILL MAKE WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS PRESENTS OR TO TAKE TO Christmas PARTIES OR ANY KIND OF PARTIES! I WILL BE TRYING THIS SOON THANKSGIVEN AND CHRISTMAS IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!!!

  6. These look incredibly delicious, I am DEFINITELY making these as Christmas gifts!
    If I manage not to eat them before I can get them to the receivers!

  7. I feel a diabetic coma coming on just looking at them. Think I will just send the recipe on to the nieces and call it good. They look amazing.

  8. Definitely worth a trip to the fire station.
    Way to have motive!
    Delicious….heck the firefighters may love them so much they’ll let your kid DRIVE the truck.

  9. Oh my god these are amazing! I also made some with white chocolate, dark chocolate, and milk chocolate. For my next adventure, I will add a layer of caramel. Thank you for the awesome recipe

  10. Oh wow! That looks absolutely delicious, I love how you took an old favorite and added your own twist. You also did an amazing job with the pictures, I will definitely try this recipe over the weekend.

  11. I made these for the holidays and I’d say they are made best dipped in white chocolate, although it’s a little more difficult because white chololate doesn’t stick to it as well as milk chocolate. But be warned, they are very sweet. Like pure sweet, no savory or bitter or saltiness like you find in cookies or chocolate, just pure sweet…I can’t quite explain it. I’m not a huge fan of straight sweet so I recomend adding a teaspoon of salt in the mix, or salt it to preference. Also you need to keep constantly chilling them. It took me 2 days to make one batch because the batter would thaw after about 10 minutes sitting out while I rolled them into balls to dip and I’d have to stop for an hour or 2 to chill them to get them solid again. Even when they chilled over night they only lasted about 20 minutes. Once they were dipped in chocolate they were fine tho and they were easy to decorate.

  12. I’ve made both this recipe and another one from loveandoliveoil.com that doesn’t call for sweetened condensed milk and really is more like regular cookie dough sans eggs. I liked this one but like Jaws said it needs a bit of salt and they do tend to be too soft to serve without a complete dip in chocolate. One thing I did that was awesome was to roll them in ground chocolate (ghirardelli brand, not just cocoa) instead of melted chocolate. This helped them hold their shape a bit longer too.

  13. I just made these today and they are delicious! Mine were a little grainy, but I think that’s because the sweetened condensed milk I used was pretty old (back of the shelf, you know, things happen!). This might have also helped mine perfectly hold their shape. Either that or the chilly Minnesota winter weather is ideal for these!

  14. I was making these for a friend of mine who is allergic to chocolate in large doses, so I substituted the chocolate dip for a butterscotch dip and it was amazing!

  15. I just made these last night, and they are amazing! I only wish I could figure out a way to dip them and still make them look pretty :(

  16. Wow what a great idea. When I used to make cookies, I always felt guilty that I would eat 1/4 of the dough before I got it to the oven. Then someone invented cookie dough ice cream. Why do we have to bake it!

    I have been living in the Philippines and one thing I miss is baking cookies (we have no oven as most Filipinos) Now I have an excuse! I can make these truffle things. Cool idea, thanks.

  17. I made these for a bake sale last weekend and they were a HUGE hit! Absolutely delicious. I sprinkled a little bit of cocoa powder on the top of mine and put them in mini cupcake papers to make them look nice since my chocolate dipping skills are essentially non-existent.

    Great Recipe!

  18. Those look like they taste great! I made truffles one time and rolled them in cocoa powder like the recipe said and they were awful. This will be a hit with all the choc freaks in my family
    Thanks from Texas

  19. yum i am 12 and i agree lazy is fun so me and my mom are going to make these hope i make them good :)

  20. I’m about to go home and make these right now for my coworkers b-day!! I will also try a gluten-free version w/a gf flour blend. I hope it turns out good because then I will be able to enjoy them too!

  21. Addictive seems like an understatement! But I think if I decorate them nice enough with chocolate I’ll be less inclined to eat too many of my pretty creatioins.

  22. assuming you can eat just one (which i bet the majority of overweight americans can’t); this is nutritional breakdown:

    81 cal
    29 cal from fat
    2g saturated fat
    8 mg cholesterol
    12 g carbs
    1.3 g protein

    so, assuming you’ll eat 10 of these at a time, your caloric and fat intake exceeds anything you should be consuming at one sitting.

    hence the reason for the obesity problem in america.

  23. I made these with my friend today and they were not so good. The inside was so grainy and tasteless and the chocolate just tasted bad. I think they would have worked better with a different cookie dough recipe. Also, they were way too sweet. Other than that it was a great idea, and your pictures looked so good! I wonder why ours were so thick and not truffle-like. ):

  24. Aw, I’m sorry they weren’t good, maybe today they will be better- maybe some of the sugar granules will dissolve. I have been wanting to re-create the recipe with other doughs, now I’m really inspired to do it! I’m not too sure why yours weren’t as good… was everything in date, etc? I always forget to check my sweetened condensed milk. Hmmm.. :(

  25. I’m hosting a garden party in a few weeks so I’m looking for unusual recipes that I could make to surprise my guests. Thanks for sharing this cookie dough truffles recipe, as I think I’m going to give it a try for the occasion.

  26. For the love of God, these look fantastic and you are hilarious. Thanks for sharing, will try them out tomorrow!

  27. I stumbled upon this recipe and I HAD to try it! Well, I just made a batch this morning and they are fabulous! They’re in my fridge cooling down right now but I’m so tempted to eat a spoonful… I will definitely be making these in the future.

  28. It’s funny – they look like they are so hard too make but they are actually quite easy. Making people believe you are a rock-start in the kitchen all starts with these little yummy balls. Thanks for sharing!

  29. dipped them in peanut butter first, then chocolate. delicious! great recipe. thanks for sharing :)

  30. im only at the end of the cookie dough bit. and i ate about 1/3 of the mixture. SOOOO good. cant wait to be eating them covered in chocolate. taking them to a dinner party. THANKS HEAPS.

  31. These are delicious! My little tip to anyone else making these is to melt the chocolate on a stove rather than in the microwave, you wont have any trouble with chocolate burning that way

  32. They are AMAZINGGGGG!!!!! Have made them twice now and just giving them another go!
    Very important though, don’t use easy spread butter, has to be the proper stuff othwise the balls don’t go hard enough and you’ll end up with a sticky mess ;)

    Your daughter is beatiful by the way if that’s her on the vanilla cookie truffles picture! Stunning for a young child! x

  33. I am currently making these. The recipe is good but when I tasted it I found it to be waaaay too bitter so I added more brown sugar and vanilla and it’s tasting better. Thanks for this recipe, I can’t wait for my husband to see the finished product :D

  34. I made these (but added in more brown sugar and vanilla) and they were absolutely delicious!! What other recipes would you recommend that are somewhat similar?

  35. I would like to tell you that this recipe is absolutely delicious! I tried it over the weekend and it turned out perfectly. You really did a great job of presenting everything that needed to be done – and the pictures you post make it impossible to not try this yourself!!

  36. Question…. we have a milk allergy in our family. Could anyone suggest an alternative to the condensed mild? I have found soy chocolate chips, so I’m good there. But what could be substituted for the condensed milk? Suggestions?

  37. Making these to take to my brothers for Thanksgiving.

    I added a bit of salt to my batch…I think that’s one of the best parts of cookie dough is that salty taste mixed with the sweetness.

  38. I made these today and they are very tasty. I had the best results when I worked with small batches and kept the stuff I wasn’t using in the freezer. I’m taking them to a Christmas party tomorrow.

  39. Just have to say that I’ve had a couple of mishaps with overcooking chocolate in the microwave. My friend and I called them mess up brownies. If you put a little milk in the overcooked chocolate and let it sit, you get soft brownies. Just a tip if you don’t want to throw away your chocolate. It can be expensive these days. :)

  40. I tried the recipe but it did not turn out whatsoever :( I did everything to the exact way of the recipe, even chilled it for a couple hours. Went back to make the finished product and it was still just a bowl of mush… I would have loved to try these but unfortunately this recipe did not work. I guess I’ll just be making chocolate chip cookies.

  41. Oh NO, add extra flour- until you get the right “dough” I’m not sure why they didn’t turn out- unless it’s really humid where you are? Humidity can really mess up some recipes! Anyway, if you add the flour, until you get the “dough” it should be okay, and it may even taste BETTER since it’s REALLY sweet to begin with. :)

  42. I tried, it still didn’t turn out and the dough just tasted like pure flour lol I made cookies out of it instead and they also turned out nasty, maybe I just can’t bake? Lmao

  43. These are very great, I made these a while back but no one in my family would be okay with eating them because they were grossed out! I kept telling them, no eggs but it didn’t work.

  44. What is your secret to dipping? My dips always turn out….let’s just say not as pretty. Care to share??

  45. These sound to die for.Yum! I think I will try it using mini Cristmas muffin papers. Put the cookie dough balls in and pour chocolate on top.Then drizzle with a little green or red candy melts.

  46. You don’t have to cook the dough? Doesn’t these taste like raw flour? It’s strange…
