Christmas Cookie Dough Truffles

Just as delicious as the first time.

I have posted these before, but they are so cute and delicious I had to share them again.  Who doesn't love cookie dough?  These can be made far in advance and frozen for months!  If you are thinking of homemade gifts I highly suggest you mix up a batch this weekend and then save them for Christmas.  You won't be disappointed.

Cookie Dough Truffles
recipe from Baked Perfection

1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
dash of cinnamon
1 stick butter, softened (it is even okay if it is melting a little)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cups mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 - 2 tablespoons water

Assorted candy melts

In a medium bowl combine the flour, salt, and dash of cinnamon. In a second larger bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract until creamy. Slowly beat in the flour mixture until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Add water if mixture is too dry to form into balls. Roll the mixture into quarter size balls and lay on cookie sheet lined with wax paper (Should make approximately 20). Chill for several hours or freeze for 15-20 minutes until firm.

Melt candy melts in the microwave per directions on package (30 sec intervals, stirring in between). Gently dip the cookie dough ball into the candy coating. Once covered remove and let the excess chocolate fall off. Place back on wax paper to dry.

To decorate with drizzled chocolate, place melted chocolate in a plastic sandwich bag. Using scissors, cut the very tip off the sandwich bag. The smaller your cut, the smaller the drizzle. Use the sandwich bag to pipe the chocolate back and forth over the cookie dough truffle until you reach the desired look.


  1. No baking required. Trust me, they are delicious!

    1. candy melts are the small discs of chocolate (different colors and sometimes flavors) you can get them at stores like Michaels (any craft store) or chocolate store.

  3. Recipe says it makes about 20

  4. Unbaked flour can have worm eggs in it. I recently opened a new bag of flour and it was "wiggling".

  5. Julie, candy melts are round candy drops you can melt like you would with chocolate. They're from the Wilton brand and you can find them at Walmart. As for unbaked flour, there's nothing wrong using it, as long as the flour is fresh, up to 2 months after you've opened the bag and has been stored properly.

  6. Do these cookies have to be kept refrigerated?
