Cookie dough…well…what’s not to love? Has anyone else made cookie dough with the intention of baking it into cookies, only to find that the cookie dough disappeared before it even started baking? It’s naive enough to lick the mixer at first, but honestly, once the kids know there’s cookie dough in the house, it quickly dissolves into spoons stolen from the mixing bowl, and… well, we digress. Point is, we’re kind of obsessed with The Stay At Home Chef’s cookie dough.
We decided to embrace our love of cookie dough and turn it into delicious truffles! Simply dip it in chocolate for a luxurious truffle bite. Cooke Dough Truffles are definitely on our favorites list. Pure cookie dough with “chocolate chips” on the outside. You can easily rationalize eating a dozen. It’s not like you eat a dozen cookies, it’s only 12 bites! For this reason, you may want to double this recipe. We will not judge.
How to make a double boiler:
No Double Roast Chicken? You can easily DIY one! Bring a few inches of water to a low simmer in a saucepan. Place a metal or glass bowl over the skillet. Find the right bowl, you want it to fit snugly. Make sure the water in the saucepan is not high enough to touch the bottom of the bowl. You need to leave some space between the water and the bowl. The steam from the boiling water heats the bowl and melts the chocolate chips inside.
Chocolate Options for Cookie Dough Truffles:
When it comes to chocolate, you have many options. Not only do you have milk, semi-sweet and dark chocolate, but you also have a choice of chips, wafers and chocolate bars. Feeling really adventurous? How about white chocolate, butterscotch or peanut butter chips?
Cookie Dough Safety:
We do not include eggs in this recipe, so it is safe to eat without cooking. If you’re worried about raw flour, you can toast the flour before using it. Flour a sheet pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes, or in a large skillet on the stovetop over medium heat for 5-7 minutes.
Dipping Tips and Tricks:
1. Place a toothpick in the stuffing ball. This makes them easier to dip since they have a handle. Remove the toothpick when all of it is dipped and place a little melted chocolate where the toothpick was so the whole ball looks dipped.
2. Freeze the filling. With this particular recipe, we put the dough balls in the freezer for about 20 minutes before dipping them. This keeps the filling from falling apart due to the weight of the chocolate.
3. Use a rubber spatula to aid in impregnation. This will allow you to easily spread the chocolate over the entire ball and remove any excess so there are no large drops.
