Stuffed Cookie Dough Truffles – 3 Ingredients!

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

I’ve never been a big fan of cookie dough.  It just doesn’t get me excited like it does for so many people. However, I still understand just how popular it is! So, when Pillsbury released the Safe to Eat Cookie Dough, I thought, “I HAVE to create a recipe around this!”

I knew I wanted to make it into truffles, and started stuffing those with every type of sweet thing I could find in my fridge.  The two best were the hot fudge sauce, and the peanut butter… and I have to admit, I wouldn’t pass them up if I walked by a plate of them! 🙂

What you need:

  • 1 package Pillsbury Safe to Eat Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (found at Walmart and major retailers)
  • 1/3 cup hot fudge sauce (cold from the fridge)

OR

  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 package (16 ounces) milk chocolate candy coating
  • optional: sprinkles & crushed peanuts

This recipe will make 24 truffles. I like to split 12 and 12 of each flavor!

Make them:

Take the package of cookie dough out of the fridge and out of the plastic.  Let sit for about 5 minutes at room temperature.

Put wax paper over a cookie sheet, and spray with baking spray.  Set aside.

Break each piece apart and roll into a ball in the palms of your hands, then press down in the middle to create a circle.

Place about 1 teaspoon of hot fudge sauce (cold) or peanut butter in the middle of the circle, then fold it up and roll it back into a ball.  Place on cookie sheet, and then in fridge while you melt the candy coating.

In a microwavable bowl, melt the candy coating for 30 seconds, then stir, and continue until it’s completely melted.

Allow it to cool for 5-10 minutes.

Dip each ball in the candy coating and let excess chocolate drip off. I use a fork, set the ball on top, and lower it into the chocolate.

Please each ball on the cookie sheet, and quickly sprinkle with topping (optional) before it hardens.

Store in fridge, but don’t worry – they won’t last long!

    They both sounds very tasty and love that this recipe is super easy to make, I think I might have everything but the edible cookie dough. I’ll have to make some for the family.

    My family loves truffles. These look absolutely amazing. I may try them out for Thanksgiving dessert, in addition to the pie.
