Cookie Dough Truffles

Cookie Dough Truffles {Spoonful of Flavor}

These truffles are one of my favorite treats ever. I wanted to share them with you sooner, but every time I make them, they disappear before I can take any pictures. After all, they are chocolate coated cookie dough. If you love cookie dough as much as I do, then you need to make these truffles. I have to confess, I usually coat half the batch in chocolate and then package and freeze the remaining cookie dough balls. When all of the truffles are gone and I need a special treat, I just grab one of the frozen cookie dough balls out of the freezer.

This recipe comes from one of my favorite bloggers, Annie from Annie’s Eats. The recipe is perfect as written so I didn’t need to make any changes. They take a little time to make since you must shape the cookie dough balls, wait for them to freeze, and then dip them in chocolate. I promise you, they are well worth the extra time and effort.

Yields about 4 dozen

Cookie Dough Truffles
Save Recipe


  • 8 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ lb. semisweet (or bittersweet) chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • Mini chocolate chips (for garnish)


  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the flour, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla and mix until incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the mixture has firmed up enough to form balls.
  2. Shape the chilled cookie dough mixture into 1-1½ inch balls. Place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Cover loosely, transfer the pan to the freezer and chill for 1-2 hours.
  3. When ready to dip the truffles, melt the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Dip each chilled truffle, one at a time, coating in chocolate and shaking gently to remove the excess. (If at any point during dipping, the cookie dough balls become too soft, return to the freezer to chill for 30 minutes.) Transfer to a wax-paper lined surface. If using mini chocolate chips for garnish, sprinkle on top quickly after dipping each truffle before the chocolate sets. Once all the truffles have been dipped, store them in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

    Your truffles are gorgeous, Ashley! I think I would do exactly what you did – freeze some of the cookie dough balls so I could grab one when I’m craving the cookie dough! Pinned!

      Thanks, Julie! Freezing half the batter works really well for me since I always crave cookie dough 🙂

      Oreo balls sound good too, but I don’t think anything beats chocolate chip cookie dough!

    • Ashley

      Thanks Lauren! I love how these truffles don’t have any egg in them but taste just like raw cookie dough.

  11. Jamie | Jamie's Recipes

    Cookie dough is the best! What a perfect thing to transform into a truffle.

    With three little children and a hungry husband I often find myself in situations where the food disappears before I can take a picture of it too.

    how do you dip the truffles in the chocolate? thx.

    • Ashley

      You can place the cookie dough on the end of a fork and dip, tapping off excess chocolate. But I just place the cookie dough on the end of a toothpick and dip. Use whatever method works best for you.

  21. Amanda


    You didn’t mention on how long this should be baked? is this a no-bake recipe? sorry, first timer.. i assume this has to be baked since it’s using flour 😀


    • Ashley

      Hi Amanda! The truffles are no-bake. Just follow the recipe and you will have delicious truffles 🙂

    Do you have to use condensed milk?

    • Ashley

      Yes, the condensed milk is necessary for good texture and flavor.

  24. blake

    hi! since these are a no bake recipe, if not immediately consumed, will they crack? i find that when i make my no bake recipe cake pops they crack after what i call “acclimating” to room temp after a while or in fridge. it seems to only be with these type of recipes

    • Ashley

      Hi, Blake! I make truffles often and have honestly never had a problem with cracking.

    Just wanted to comment and say I made this for Christmas this year and they were amazing. I tried the cookie dough mixture before letting it cool and I was a little nervous cause it didn’t taste like expected. But after being in the fridge for awhile and then being covered in chocolate, it was absolutely delicious. We finished them all (and it made quite a lot!) in two days. I would recommend this recipe to anyone who loves cookie dough!

    • Ashley

      Hi, Katie! Thank you so much for your comment. I am so glad to hear that you loved how they turned out. They are one of my favorite treats. 🙂
