Cookie Dough Truffles

Creating food is therapeutic. Put things in a bowl that wouldn’t taste good individually, mix them together, and end up with something decadent. It’s like magic. It does the soul good.

Love and Olive Oil has just published a cookbook. The blog world is going crazy about all of the delightful treats you can make thanks to her cookie dough recipes. Not to be left behind, these truffles had to be made!

Let’s not get scared here, truffles are not difficult. There are the basic steps:

  1. Make balls of filling
  2. Coat with a candy substance, often chocolate
  3. Embellish as your muse leads you

I found the recipe over on Bakerella, and added my own embellishment as I had some white chocolate burning a hole in my pantry.

Some things that I learned:

1. Freezing the cookie dough balls before you dip really helps! Take a few out of the freezer at a time.

2. A kabob stick makes a great dipping skewer. Just fill in the hole after you’re done!

3. Melting chocolate is easy. Use your microwave. Set it for 30 seconds, stir. If it isn’t smooth, set it for 30 more seconds. Continue until melted. If it starts to thicken while you’re dipping, just put it back in the microwave for a few more seconds. This goes for the white chocolate drizzle as well! Melt in a bowl, scoop into a plastic bag, and pipe by cutting a small corner off.

This recipe will be making a come back! These truffles will keep in the fridge for up to a week. I dare you to make them last that long.
