There is something special about chocolate chip cookie dough, and every ounce of that cookie-dough goodness that I remember from my childhood lives within these chocolate drizzled jewels. Every ounce.

When you reach the final step of drizzling the extra melted chocolate on top of the truffles, be sure to have a little fun, and don’t worry about being perfect.

When it comes to melted chocolate, a little sloppy is always best, in my opinion. Put some love into it.

Chocolate chip cookie dough truffles

Yield: 20 truffles
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes


  • 1/3 cup butter, softened 1/3 cup packed brown sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla 1 cup flour 1 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips 4 ounces dark chocolate or semisweet chocolate, chopped 4 ounces chocolate candy coating, chopped 1 tablespoon shortening


1. Line a baking pan with waxed paper and set aside. In a medium bowl, beat your butter, brown sugar and vanilla at medium speed until combined. Beat in the flour just until combined, do not over mix. Stir in chocolate chips and shape into 1-inch balls, placing them on your pan. Cover the balls and freeze for about 30 minutes.

2. Heat chopped chocolate, candy coating and shortening over low heat in a saucepan. Stir chocolate until melted and smooth. Remove from heat.

3. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Using a fork, dip the balls into the chocolate and allow excess to drip back into your pan. Place the chocolate coated balls on the lined baking sheet and let stand or chill about 30 minutes or until set. Now, drizzle with remaining chocolate to make the tops of the truffles pretty.

4. Place truffles in a single layer in an airtight container to store, keep covered. They may also be stored in the refrigerator up to 1 week.

  1. Quick question, do we need to “bake” the flour at all? Most recipes for raw cookie dough flash bake the flour. Just curious! These look amazing and I will definitely give them a try…… Possibly today! Mmmmmm

  2. these look so good! can you just use a baking bar instead of the chocolate, candy coating, shortening mixture?!

  3. My dough for some reason came out very dry and sandlike. I may not have had enough butter (I always was bad at figuring out my tablespoon conversions. Plus 5.3 tablespoons is hard to measure) but it was easily fixed with an extra few teaspoons of vanilla, and a couple of teaspoons of milk. Them they finally held their ball shape.

  4. I could use a whole plate of these right now. They look soooo good!

  5. OH I see! No eggs. wondered how this could be good. My daughter said she had this at a friends and I thought OH boy. But this is something she and friends might enjoy making at a sleepover! thanks for sharing!

  6. Yum! Those truffles look amazing. Can’t wait to try to make these.

  7. We hosted an exchange student from Japan this summer. We made cookies together and I snuck some of the dough. Our student, Maho, was appalled. I offered her some and she refused saying they don’t do that back home. I knew she had to try it so she didn’t miss out on that goodness any longer. I finally convinced her to try it. Oh man did she love it. She couldn’t stop sneaking the dough after that. I hope I haven’t ruined her for life!
