No more guilt about eating cookie dough straight from the bowl! These egg-free Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles are one of our most requested homemade treats for special occasions!
Every year I pull together some delicious homemade goodies for my husband’s team at work. Last year I did holiday-themed cake pops. The year before that was a basket filled with delights my mom always made us during the holidays. The centerpieces of this year’s treat basket are these little bites of heaven called Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles. These truffles taste just like spoonfuls of real cookie dough, but they are made without eggs. No more worrying about salmonella when you sneak a spoonful of dough (or two or three) from the bowl…genius!
Initially I was worried that these would be time-consuming to make, but the cookie dough is super easy to pull together. Even making the little truffle balls is a piece of cake thanks to my favorite NorPro scoop. I admit that the dipping is a little fussy, but the finished product is totally worth it. Once you get a rhythm going, it’s pretty slick. Decorate them with sprinkles or mini-chips while the chocolate coating is still wet or drizzle melted white chocolate on top after they have set. They do need to be refrigerated and will last about a week, but the leftovers didn’t make it more than a day in my house.
