This easy chocolate chip cookie dough truffle recipe is made with just two ingredients so it's quick to make! This fun and festive recipe is sponsored by Just Cookies! from Hampton Creek. Just scoop out the cookie dough and dip in chocolate and your holiday treats are ready to go.
The crazy holiday cook baking and candy making is just about to start. I have a great Christmas planner and Christmas Cookie Exchange party planner I use every year to stay organized. But it never fails that at some point in December I end up needing just one more super quick and easy treat to make in a hurry. These truffles need only 2 ingredients, are super quick to make and are even allergy friendly.
I used Hampton Creek's Just Cookie Dough as the heart of the truffles. Just Cookie Dough is pre-made cookie dough that is GMO free, cholestrol free, dairy free, lactose free, kosher and… egg free, which means you can safely eat it raw. Cookie dough lovers – this one is definitely for you!
These truffles are super easy to make. I scooped the dough out using a 1 Tablespoon cookie scoop.
I found that dipping them worked best if you rounded them out a little so they weren't quite so flat on the bottom. I put the scoops on a plate and then put them in the fridge while I prepped the chocolate.
I melted some chocolate in this nifty little electric chocolate pot. It is the best tool ever for holiday chocolate melting. I used chocolate candy melts to dip the truffles in. I rolled the cookie dough balls in the chocolate and used wooden kebab skewers to get the truffles out. If any of the chocolate comes off when putting the truffles down to dry, just use a dab of the chocolate to fix it.
Because I used chilled chocolate chip cookie dough, the chocolate started to set immediately. I made the mistake of letting the truffles dry on a cooling rack and the stuck. The chocolate set right to the wire! I'd suggest letting them dry on waxed or parchment paper so they come off easily.
And that's it! Your chocolate chip cookie dough truffles are ready to be eaten. I would keep the truffles in the fridge until you serve them or give them away.
