The perfect cookie dough truffles are so easy to make and perfect for entertaining or enjoying as a treat.

Cookie Dough Truffles Recipe 1

Cookies hold a definite place of distinction around my house – from our chewy chocolate chip cookies to out of this world peanut butter cookies and let’s not even think about forgetting my absolute favorite cookie dough dip. They all are our favorites.

So, I decided I’d combine some flavors from our chewy chocolate chip cookies and my chocolate chip cookie dough dip to make the perfect cookie dough truffles recipe.

Let me just go ahead and tell you now, when you pop one of these babies in your mouth, you immediately feel like a kid again sneaking a little bite of the cookie dough.

Err… well… I at least did.

The best part? The dough doesn’t include any eggs, so I made a huge batch of them for my Mama since she sometimes is more sensitive to eggs than the rest of us.

I left a few out for all of us to enjoy and then boxed the rest up for her to keep in her freezer so she could enjoy them whenever she needed a little nibble of cookie dough truffles.


Here’s how I make my cookie dough truffles.

The perfect cookie dough truffles are so easy to make and perfect for entertaining or enjoying as a treat.


For the chocolate coating:

  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
  • sea salt


  • Cream together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add in vanilla and combine.
  • Add flour and sweetened condensed milk and combine well.
  • Mix in chocolate chips, toffee bits, and oats using a wooden spoon until thoroughly combined.
  • Scoop teaspoon sized balls onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Place in the refrigerator or freezer for about 15 minutes until firm.
  • Place chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave safe bowl and heat on 70% power for about 1 minute to melt. Stir until smooth and glossy.
  • Remove baking sheet from refrigerator or freezer and dip each ball into the melted chocolate with a spoon. Hold the dipped truffle over the melted chocolate bowl for a few seconds and gently tap on the side of the bowl to allow the excess chocolate to flow back into the bowl. Place the dipped truffle back onto the parchment paper to allow to cool and harden.
  • Repeat until all have been dipped.
  • Using your fork or a spoon, drizzle little bits of melted chocolate over the top of truffles.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Set aside to allow to thoroughly harden or place into the freezer for at least 15 minutes to harden.
  • To eat, remove from the freezer for a few minutes to allow to thaw a bit.
  • To freeze for up to a month, remove baking sheet from the freezer and place frozen truffles into an airtight container, date the container, and return to the freezer.

Recipe Review


  1. I love this as much as I love cookie dough and that’s a LOT! These look so delicious and I would not be able to resist these truffles. I would have to restrain myself from eating the whole batch and save them for guests! πŸ˜‰

    1. They are great to keep in the freezer, Julie. That way you can save them for guests! πŸ™‚

    1. Or Monday evening, Tuesday morning, Tuesday evening… you get the picture. πŸ™‚

    1. That little sprinkle speaks to me, too. I’m all about the sweet and salty and that sprinkle gives it just the right touch.

  2. I love how creamy these look, YUM! I pinned this recipe immediately, I know my co-workers would love me for these!

    1. Thanks so much, Jess. Yes, your co-workers will adore you even more when you show up with these at work!

  3. These sound perfect, Robyn! And I’m so glad that you didn’t put cream cheese in them. Most of the cookie dough truffles and dips that I see have cream cheese, which makes them not taste like cookie dough to me. I love the toffee and oats! Can’t wait to try these!

  4. I remember saving a similar recipe years ago and still haven’t made it. Gah… now you’re making me want cookie dough in a serious way!

    1. Isn’t it the best stuff in all the land? I can’t wait to hear how your family likes them, Brenda.

  5. Ah yes! I have a feeling that I’m going to have to make a few of these to keep in the fridge for those chocolate chip cookie dough cravings.

  6. These look too good for words. Seriously. I could eat one right now…but I really need to quit reading beautiful food blogs and actually eat some breakfast first. πŸ™‚

  7. I adore raw cookie dough, and cake batter. The raw eggs haven’t hurt me yet so I’m not stopping anytime soon, but these would definitely cut back on how often I have the raw-egg version. Yum!

  8. Um… hello, yum! πŸ˜€ I’ve been eating cookie dough since I was a little kid and the idea of it as a TRUFFLE? Too good!

  9. I’ve had my share of cookie dough truffles – but not with the little pinch of sea salt on top – trying asap!!!

  10. Oh my goodness these are so yummy! I saw these and not 10 minutes later I walked into my kitchen and started making some! They are absolutely phenomenal and super easy! I’m only 14 and I absolutely LOVE to bake! I think I’ve made almost half of your incredible recipes you are amazing and so inspiring!!

    1. Hi Hailey! I’m so glad you love these truffles as much as we do! It is great to connect with you and I hope you keep me posted on what all you make!
