Cookie Dough Truffles

The flavorful filling at the center of these yummy candies tastes like genuine chocolate chip cookie dough…with no worry about raw eggs. That's what makes them so appealing. And they're easy to make. —Lanita Dedon, Slaughter, Louisiana

    Just spread the flour out on a baking sheet and bake it at 350 for 10 minutes and it will be fine to eat ;) Just let it cool before putting it in the recipe!

    No way should anyone be ingesting raw flour. This must be a “back in the days” recipe because today’s FDA says a definite no to this practice. It’s not only the egg in cookie dough that can harm people.

    These are fantastic-tasting truffles. I’ve made these many times over the years and always to rave reviews. For Easter, I coat them in pastel-colored candy coating. I’d give these truffles ten stars, if possible!

    The base idea for these is great, but you'll probably have to do some tinkering to find success. I personally make the truffles about a third of the size the recipe calls for, because otherwise they are overwhelmingly sweet. I've also found that I need to chill the dough several times in the process. Make the dough, chill, shape into balls, and freeze until hard. When coating them, I only work with the dough balls about twelve at a time and leave the rest in the freezer to remain cold. I also stick toothpicks in the dough balls so I'm not handling them as much. The ball tends to slip off the toothpick if you actually dip it in the chocolate, so I will usually just coat them using a spoon, which gives them a nice thin coating. If you have a block of styrofoam, it works great if you just leave the toothpick in the truffle and stick the toothpick into the styrofoam to let the chocolate set. There will be a little hole in the bottom of the truffle, which I really don't care about, but if it bothers you, I'm sure you could patch it up with a little more chocolate.

    I tried this recipe two separate times and had the same result-the dough was too sticky to form balls and did not hold it's shape. I chilled it overnight and I tried adding more flour and some powdered sugar. This stiffened the dough some but not enough, and it gained an undesirable flour flavor. I'm disappointed that I have wasted the ingredients. It is not salvageable to use or coat with chocolate. It was a recipe flop for me.

    Easy to make and pretty tasty. My teen daughter would have rated these higher.

    My husband said these were great. My three kids did not like. One said it was a texture thing. My husband likes to steal an unbaked cookie when he can get away with it, which is why he must have liked them. So if you like to eat cookie dough, this is the truffle for you.

    I left out the walnuts but thought these turned out great even without them. This is just like eating cookie dough and the kids and grown ups love it!

    These little cookie dough truffles are spectacular! They remind me of sneaking bits of the cookie dough when I was a kid. I will sometimes add a teaspoon of maple flavoring. So good!
