Looking to kick cookie dough up a notch? These cookie dough truffles are delicious, simple, and will definitely be crowd pleasers.

After posting two chili recipes almost simultaneously, I couldn’t resist the urge to follow-up my last cookie dough post with another winner in the cookie dough department.

Cookie Dough Truffles. Oh my.

Chocolate dipped truffle with a bite taken out.

These were tasty. Really tasty. So tasty that half the batch didn’t end up at the intended destination of my neighbor’s house for a football party. Oops.

I happen to love truffles especially the cheater kind and these fit that department. Simple, delicious and a great crowd pleaser! (P.S. there are no raw eggs in the cookie dough so you can relieve your mind on that account!)

Cookie Dough Truffles

4.70 stars (13 ratings)


  • ½ cup (113 g) butter, softened
  • ¾ cup (159 g) packed brown sugar
  • 2 ¼ cups (320 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (85 g) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts, optional, I did not add them
  • 1 ½ pounds semisweet chocolate candy coating, chopped


  • In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the flour, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla; mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts, if using.
  • Shape into 1-inch balls; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Loosely cover and freeze for 1-2 hours or until firm. (The dough softens quickly at room temperature so it works best if they are frozen, not just chilled in the refrigerator.)
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt candy coating, stirring often until smooth. Dip balls in coating; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets.
  • Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes. If desired, melt remaining candy coating and drizzle over candies. Store in refrigerator.
