These Cookie Dough Truffles are a mash-up of two of my favorite things; edible cookie dough, and chocolate! They win on all counts, being safe to eat with no raw eggs or raw flour, and being easy and fun to make and eat!

How to make Make Cookie Dough Truffles:

  1. In a mixing bowl beat together the butter, brown sugar and vanilla. Stir in the heat treated* flour, just until combined.
  2. If the dough is too dry, add 1-2 teaspoons of milk. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
  3. Grease your hands with cooking spray and roll the dough into 20, small balls (about 1 inch). Refrigerate for 30 minutes, or freeze for 15 minutes.
  4. When the dough is firm, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave at 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Drop the cookie dough into the melted chocolate and turn it gently with a fork. Lift it up onto the fork and allow excess chocolate to drip off.
  5. Place on parchment paper. Repeat with remaining dough balls. Refrigerate until chocolate is set. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Notes

Flour: Recent studies have found that raw flour may not be safe to eat, so I recommend heat-treating the flour, to kill bacteria, before making these cookie dough truffles. To heat treat flour, add flour to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir and cook again at 15 second intervals until it reads 160 degrees F on an instant read thermometer. Allow to cool before using.

  1. For the people talking about raw flour, just bake it. 5 minutes at 350* will kill any bacteria and then you can use it in recipes like these without worry.

    And for the comment about using different flour, it really doesn’t matter what kind you use, it has to do with companies not being required to regularly sterilize the machinery they use. Still bake it. It only takes 5 minutes.

  2. These are amazing! I also tried dipping marshmallows in the leftover chocolate and sprinkling them with graham cracker crumbs. Those were amazing as well

  3. These look great, but it turns out uncooked flour is a source of food poisoning, too! It’s not just raw eggs that’s the problem!

      1. 5 stars
        These look wonderful! After almost losing one of my children to salmonella poisoning, I no longer eat the raw dough! I am 47 years old, and have eaten it raw many times. It only takes one times for salmonella to happen, and I personally saw what it can do. There are alternatives to flour, like banana flour. I am going to definitely try these with the banana flour and see what happens. Thank you for the recipe
