Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

I’ve never liked chocolate chip cookies. Go ahead and throw tomatoes at me if you’d like, but I don’t like ‘em. They’re just a plain old cookie, after all, with a few studs of chocolate chips in them. They’re nothing special to me, unless you get some cookie dough-action before it meets its fate in the oven. Now you’re talkin’. I’d much rather drown my sorrows in a bowl of cookie dough than nibble a dozen “cookies” dipped in milk. Yep, the cookie dough is definitely where it’s at.

I know there are plenty of cookie-dough-nay-sayers out there… you know, the salmonella scare and all . Well, I grew up licking cookie dough beaters and cake batter-covered rubber spatulas. I guess I’ve been lucky. In any case, these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles do not contain any egg, so no worries there. Here’s the how-to:

Chilled dough is rolled into 1-inch balls. You’ll get 3 to 4 dozen of them out of this recipe.

Those chilled dough balls are dipped in chocolate and then placed onto waxed paper to set. Add any special decor you’d like to the tops. Refrigerate them again if you’d like them to set quickly.

I dipped a few in Ghirardelli White Chocolate Bark and a few in the Chocolate version too. Little drizzles of alternative colors and sprinkles of chips fancy them up a bit.

Oh yeah! There’s that cookie dough inside. These are for cookie dough lovers. If you love cookie dough as much as I do… you’ll love these little treats. No egg inside… just tender dough and chocolate chips as you bite into that chocolate exterior. Love these :)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Yield: 3 to 4 dozen truffles

Prep Time: 45 min + chilling time

Best served cold, these treats are for cookie-dough lovers.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup salted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
chocolate bark, to melt for dipping
additional chocolate chips, sprinkles, etc., optional for topping the truffles

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, use electric mixer to cream together butter and brown sugar. Add vanilla. Beat in flour, 1 cup at a time, until it is incorporated and you no longer see chunks of brown sugar (if you spot any, just squish them). Beat in sweetened condensed milk and mix until well-combined. Stir in 1 cup of chocolate chips.

2. Cover bowl and refrigerate until dough is firm (at least 1 hour- maybe more... you want the dough to be quite firm). Use a small cookie scoop to scoop out heaping Tablespoonfuls, roll into balls and place on a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet. Place all of the rolled balls back into the refrigerator until you are ready to dip them in chocolate.

3. Melt chocolate bark in a glass bowl- easiest to do in the microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring after each heating time, until smooth. Use a spoon to help you dip the chilled dough ball into the chocolate and roll it around to cover all sides. Place it on a waxed paper-lined platter. Sprinkle with any desired toppings. Repeat with the rest of the dough balls. They'll begin to set pretty quickly. Keep them refrigerated until ready to serve.

Tips:

*I used the Ghirardelli Candy Making Dipping Bar- both Double Chocolate and White flavors. It's available at Sam's Club- they may have it at Costco too.
*You may wish to speed up the chilling process and place the balls into the freezer, but it's not such a good idea. The dough freezes up and then when it begins to warm up again- it expands and may cause the chocolate coating to crack.

*Have your own favorite cookie dough recipe? Leave out the eggs, add a little milk to compensate for any dryness in the dough, and try making truffles with your own recipe!

    Mikaela Cowles — March 30, 2011 @ 7:35 AM

    I feel like these should just be wrong because I could eat them until all 3 or 4 dozen are gone. Somehow wrong sounds quite tasty though, doesn’t it? How long do they keep (if you could keep them)?

    Paul — April 2, 2011 @ 7:26 PM

    I threw up once because I ate too much cookie dough. I’d still do it again, though. :-)

  52. 52

    The Food Hound — April 4, 2011 @ 10:30 AM

    Dough is definitely better than the actual cookie in the case of chocolate chip cookies… but I wouldn’t go so far as to say I don’t like chocolate chip cookies :) These look so great, and I wouldn’t even judge if they had egg in them :)

    alexa — April 6, 2011 @ 8:31 PM

    i just finished making these…they weren’t very good at all. the dough takes forever to harden, and as soon as it does, when you roll them into a ball, they soften and melt again before you can even put them in chocolate. also, WAY too much condensed milk. i’d use maybe 3/4 of the can. it was very runny and tasted like nothing but condensed milk and flour. next time, i’m sticking with real cookie dough. i’ve been eating it for years and nothing has ever happened, to anyone that i know.

  55. 55

    Lori Lange — April 7, 2011 @ 5:11 AM

    @alexa, Sorry to hear you didn’t care for them- mine stayed firm and did not soften when rolling. I wonder if the consistency of sweetened condensed milk varies? You can certainly use a regular chocolate chip cookie dough recipe and just leave out the egg- add a little milk to get a softer consistency.

  56. 56

    Amy — April 7, 2011 @ 2:04 PM

    Just made these and they turned out pretty good!!
    just a couple things though, maybe dont add quite as much flour as this recipe calls for as i can taste it a little. Also try to make the balls a little small to avoid the overpowering amount of cookie dough i used.
    Thanks for the recipe!!

    Kori — April 10, 2011 @ 6:51 PM

    Angie — April 13, 2011 @ 12:23 PM

    @alexa, Hi there! StumbledUpon this recipe last week and it’s been all I can think about since! LOL! So I am in the process of making these as we speak, well they’re actually setting up in the fridge now. I did a little research last night because I didn’t want to use an eggless recipe, I wanted to use MY recipe (which is to absolute heaven). My findings tell me that if an egg, or egg product is either pasteurized, or as my egg box says, “kept at around 45 degrees” and no lower, the cookie dough consumer should be safe. Of course there is always that chance, but I am 40 years old and have been consuming cookie dough for much of my life (no, I’m not fat everything in moderation, right?) and I have yet to get sick from it. Am I telling you to use regular ol’ cookie dough? Nope! I am just telling you what I chose to do… By the way, I am sharing these at the Scuba Diving Club Meeting I am attending tonight… I’ll post an update if anyone is interested to know how they went over. :)

    Kayli — April 17, 2011 @ 5:15 PM

    These are amazing, and super fun to make! While I would agree with Amy on the too much flour comment, it’s not hard to tweak this recipe.
    Needless to say, my house smells like chocolate, and I will be using this again – possible experimenting with artificial flavoring.

    Ceres — April 24, 2011 @ 12:08 AM

    My boyfriend and I just made these and they OWN. I think you should call them millionaire truffles because they are sososo rich. And amazing. Did I mention amazing? Thank you for posting this. :) <3

    Lori,
    I wanted to tell you that I completely agree with your stance on chocolate chip cookies. Whenever a friend would bring cookies to a group dinner, I was always sorely disappointed. Chocolate chip cookies just don’t do it for me. So, I thinks these cookie dough cookies are an amazing idea. Everyone loves cookie dough…especially me. Thanks for the inspiration.

  64. 64

    Lindseyr — May 1, 2011 @ 8:42 AM

    I just made these last night. And everything worked out according to your recipe. However, when I ‘beat’ the sweetened condensed milk into the creamed butter, sugar, and flour it broke my electric hand mixer. So i recommend using a wooden spoon to mix that all together. I also made them a tad smaller, so the cookie dough wouldn’t be overpowering. And they were delicious! Overall GREAT recipe!

  65. 65

    joanne — May 1, 2011 @ 12:01 PM

    i just made these and they are WONDERFUL!!!!!!!! very rich and creamy. i recommend everyone to try these. :)

    Michelle — May 8, 2011 @ 5:28 PM

    Hey,

    Just finished making these, and I’m quite disappointed. I had to tweek the recipe quite a bit for the stuff I had in the house; instead of brown sugar I used icing sugar; instead of regular flour used rice flour; and instead of mini chocolate chips I used normal ones.

    Before I mixed all the ingredients together and put it in the fridge, I had no clue this was a no bake recipe, haha. A mistake on my own that I didn’t read through the entire recipe.

    However these did turn out, extremely sweet. And the consistency on the inside , was weird, I believe it was the flour I’m tasting.

    Definitely going to be giving these to everyone I know, see if they like them, because I really don’t. Haha.

    Oh well, they look really cute, I’m just not so sure about the taste.

  69. 69

    Lori Lange — May 8, 2011 @ 6:48 PM

    I’m not sure you’d have gotten the same result that I did since you made some pretty significant changes to the recipe! Powdered sugar is not interchangeable w/ brown sugar, and I’ve never tasted rice flour… so I’m not at all sure what flavor that would lend. In any case, sorry it didn’t turn out for you…

    Manda Beaulieu — May 15, 2011 @ 6:20 PM

    These are outstanding….thought my husband was going to die! He asked if he could just take the bowl full of batter and park himself on the couch with a spoon! I’m sure they’ll be gone in a heartbeat at work tomorrow. Next time, I might try to dissolve the sugar before beating, I think its just a texture thing with me. Such an ingenious little dessert and sure to give my Oreo truffles a run for their money!

    angela munoz — May 16, 2011 @ 12:06 PM

    i had a question if anyone can help me…. i saw this amazing little recipe and i had bought nestle chocolate chip cookie dough and i was wondering if i had to use that recipe of chocolate chip cookie dough up there or can i use the one i bought. i thought about this awesome last night and so bought one in the tube in the refigerated aisle is it ok to use instead of the one on the recipe?

  72. 72

    Lori Lange — May 16, 2011 @ 10:32 PM

    Randi — May 17, 2011 @ 7:47 PM

    I fell in love just reading this recipe. And i’m actually in the process of making them right now but they’re in the fridge hardening. I read through the comments and I can add to some of them that they are right about the too much sweetened condensed milk and floury taste. I was wondering what I can add to these to sweeten them up a little and make it less.. weird tasting. I’m pretty sure it’s the condensed milk though, I used almost the whole 14 ounces but it did seem like a little too much, is there a way i can get that taste hidden a little? Other than that i’m pretty excited to make these for my roommates! I’m anxious to dip them but they’ve been in the fridge since 9 and still are not hard enough to put into balls :( I’m 100% positive i followed your directions exactly the way you wrote them!

  74. 74

    Lori Lange — May 17, 2011 @ 8:23 PM

    I liked them as-is, but I definitely preferred them dipped in chocolate rather than eating the dough on its own. Hopefully, the dough will harden up for you. Might let it sit overnight?

  75. 75

    Randi — May 18, 2011 @ 8:22 AM

    Yeah the dough actually tasted fine this morning, but it’s still not hardened…. :( Like i can get it to roll into a ball but when i try and put it on the plate it falls flat or it won’t even come off my fingertip! I’m so sad. I really wanted to dip these before i went to work today.

  76. 76

    Lori Lange — May 18, 2011 @ 8:37 AM

    That’s really, really strange. My was firm enough after a couple of hours to roll into balls. I wonder if the consistency of sweetened condensed milk tends to vary. That’s all I can think of. You can see from the pics that my dough stayed together!

  77. 77

    Randi — May 18, 2011 @ 9:25 PM

    I know!! Yours are perfect but mine just won’t harden! But yeah my sweetened condensed milk was really syrupy, and really thick. I was even debating on using it all when I first saw it because it just looked so thick.. But I didn’t wanna not follow your instructions! Haha. I’m thinking about just adding a tad more flour, that seems like my only option right now because it’s literally been over 24 hours and they still are so soft I can’t even keep them in ball form! Geeeeeeeeeze. I’m so not willing to give up though, i spent so much on candy coating that i WILL dip these eventually! Lol

  78. 78

    Courtney — May 24, 2011 @ 5:35 PM

    marcy Horwitz — May 28, 2011 @ 10:27 AM

    these chocolate chip cookie dough truffles look so good. would it work if you use a mix of chocolate chip cookie dough and make the truffles with that?

  81. 81

    Lori Lange — May 28, 2011 @ 7:54 PM

    Well, I haven’t tried a mix… so I really can’t tell you for sure if it will work or not. I’d give it a shot and see!

  82. 82

    Rachel — June 5, 2011 @ 10:15 AM

    I made these yesterday and followed the recipe exactly and they hardened in about an hour and were perfectly able to roll! I made half of them into truffles and half of them into chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes, very yummy! However, it was EXTREMELY rich and sweet! Maybe some people can handle that more than others, but I can only eat one per day! Overall, very good, I just maybe need to figure out a way to make it not quite as sweet…

    Marianna — June 9, 2011 @ 10:46 AM

    I have a question about the butter. I have like 10 sticks of unsalted butter in my house – all of which are long expired because I rarely use them. Can I use salted butter in this recipe or would that taste awful?

  84. 84

    Lori Lange — June 9, 2011 @ 11:01 AM

    Yes, use salted butter. Whenever I call for butter in my recipes, it’s for the regular salted kind. If a recipe needs unsalted, I’ll indicate it as such. Hope you enjoy!

    According to the CDC, one in 20,000 eggs is contaminated with Samonella… that’s over 2 million eggs per year in the US. What are YOUR chances of getting sick from one of those eggs? Well, if you’re young, healthy, and not immunocompromised, probably not a whole lot. But if you ever DO get Samonella poisoning, it will break you of the raw batter/dough habit for life. That much I know from experience. Do I miss the taste? Oh yeah. Do I ever want to take that risk again? NO WAY!

    These are very good, but they’re very rich. Next time I make them, they’ll be bite size, make them easier to eat.

    Mim — July 12, 2011 @ 4:55 PM

    I’ve made these twice now, and I’m making them again soon because they’re always a hit! I bring them to theater cast parties and never have leftovers. I have yet to have a problem with consistency or flavor, and I followed the recipe, although I do make them smaller and once I made disks instead of balls. The only thing I do differently is to put a bit of flour on my hands when I roll them so they don’t stick, that might help if they’re runny. Thanks for the recipe!

    These look AMAZING and I’ve started making them for my sister’s wedding shower this weekend. I made the dough (turned out perfectly, by the way!) and it’s in little balls chilling in the fridge. Do you have any idea how well these keep? Would I be ok dipping them in chocolate today and keeping them chilled, or should I freeze the dough balls and decorate closer to the weekend?

    Although, if you’re anything like me, I’m not sure you could vouch for how long they keep – they don’t stick around that long!

    Lori Lange — August 1, 2011 @ 3:18 PM

    Oh gosh, it’s tough to give advice when I haven’t done it myself. If you freeze the dough, don’t dip in chocolate while frozen or you might see cracking. As far as how long they last- I would think they’d be fine dipped in choc a day or two before your event and then kept in the fridge. Good luck!

    How long will the dough stay refridgerated? I wanted to make mini-truffles for my mother-in-law’s birthday and made 6 dozen minis with a ton of dough left. I don’t want to waste it, but I really don’t want to make a ton more cookie dough balls for a party with less than 20 people! Any idea how long it will last in the fridge or freezer?

  95. 95

    Lori Lange — August 8, 2011 @ 1:47 PM

    I’d freeze it if you want to keep it… just like any other cookie dough- maybe a month or so? Just guessing…

  96. 96

    Alicia — August 10, 2011 @ 8:21 PM

    I just got done whipping these up. I haven’t tried the finished product because I am full from eating the scraps of cookie dough off of the scoops. NUM! They were easy to make and the recipe makes plenty of dough (at least for my purposes). Thanks for the idea!!

  97. 97

    Dianne — August 11, 2011 @ 8:41 AM

    I don’t like chocolate chip cookies either!!!! People always think I’m crazy but they’re just booorring. If I’m going to eat that many calories, I want em to count. But these look sinfully delicious. I can’t wait to make them :)

  98. 98

    Emily — August 19, 2011 @ 5:47 PM

    Fantasmic! I had VERY little kitchen equipment for this and whipped up everything with a rice paddle, it was a bit of a work out for creaming, but they came out SO SPECTACULARLY. I coated them all in rainbow sprinkles at the end, YUM. Instead of using the microwave for the melting I used a glass bowl over simmering water, but I love that you could conceivably make all of this with kitchen dorm equipment (a fridge, a microwave, a bowl and spoon).

    How long do you think they’d last in the fridge? I’d imagine awhile because there are no eggs right?

  99. 99

    Lori Lange — August 19, 2011 @ 6:23 PM

    A week or so?

    jennifer — November 3, 2011 @ 11:06 AM

    i saw this recipe and my heart just about jumped out of my chest i was soooo excited!!! so i ran out to the store and bought all the things i needed to make it. yet when i was adding the milk i knew that it was going to be too much, it turned the mixture watery and weird tasting but i put it in the fridge anyway, hoping it would harden. i kept checking it every hour and it never got harder than tapioca, so i left it over night. this morning i checked it and it still was tapioca… so i came back to my computer and started reading over the comments and saw that there were some that turned out like mine… then i went to find the brand of condensed milk i used and found out i used evaporated milk………… i remember being at the store and saying, no i dont need condensed milk i have some and when i got home i just grabbed a can out of the cupboard and used it, i didnt even read it or think twice. maybe some of the other ladies made the same mistake as well because their results sound just like mine…. im going back to the store to get the right milk today, ill let you know how it turns out.

    Yikes! Yes, evaporated milk is very different from condensed! Hope you got it to work out on round 2 :)

    Susan — November 4, 2011 @ 4:27 PM

    This brings back many fond memories of indulging in the “evil” habit of eating raw cookie dough. Chocolate chip/oatmeal cookie dough was divine and we always licked the cake batter bowl.

    I even put ginger creme raw cookie dough on top freshly-baked ginger creme cookies for icing. yum yum yum ~ And then there was cinnamon roll dough with all the goody slathered on top :)

    Oh my…

  106. 106

    Corinne — November 4, 2011 @ 7:29 PM

    what a great idea! I was just enjoying some chocolate brownie mixture the other day thinking how much yummier it was before being cooked!

    These look so good. I am going to make them for Thanks Giving! They will be perfect after all the turkey.

    Kimberly — November 11, 2011 @ 9:22 AM

    These are SO GENIUS! I made 2 batches- NOTHING went wrong. From my experience condensed milk has varied a lot. Plus my fridge is SUPER cold and I just used a spoon to glob them on wax paper BEFORE putting them in the fridge. I think where you are on the ‘globe’ will affect it too. Thanks Lori!

  113. 113

    Jenna — November 15, 2011 @ 6:28 PM

    Wow, these look fantastic!
    This may be a stupid question, but do these require refrigeration after the chocolate has set? I’m wondering because I would love to send some to my brother for his birthday, but I don’t want to send them if they would go bad in a day or two without refrigeration.

  114. 114

    Lori Lange — November 15, 2011 @ 10:35 PM

    Yes, they do. They are not a good for mailing!

    Kim — November 16, 2011 @ 8:07 AM

    Hi, Lori. I am so excited to make these for the holidays. They sound delicious and yours look exquisite! I’ve read msot of the comments and see how long they last in the fridge…but have you ever made them and froze them ahead? I have done this with Oreo Truffles and wondered if this would work as well. Let me know if you or anyone else has experience with this. It would be tremendously helpful to be able to have them ready to thaw at room temperature for my upcoming party.
    Thanks!

  116. 116

    Lori Lange — November 16, 2011 @ 5:37 PM

    The only problem I have with freezing these is that the chocolate sometimes cracks in the freezer.

  117. 117

    they dont need to be baked?just the frigde part?

    I just made these and you can taste the flour in it. I’m making another batch and adding powdered sugar

    DIana — November 27, 2011 @ 4:47 PM

    Sounds GOOD as everyone says, but I was just wondering… IS it unhealthy (besides the gaining fat part) in any way since none of this is getting cooked?

  121. 121

    Lori Lange — November 27, 2011 @ 9:21 PM

    I’ve not heard anything unhealthy about eating raw, unless it contains raw egg.

  122. 122

    Elizabeth Gensch — December 10, 2011 @ 7:56 AM

    Is there anyway that we can put them in a bag (plastic) and give them to someone with out them going bad? This is a perfect gift and i dont want to have to refrigerate them as soon as i give them to the person

  123. 123

    Lori Lange — December 11, 2011 @ 9:27 AM

    You could box them and refrigerate them, but it’s not the sort of truffle recipe that can stay unrefrigerated.

  124. 124

    Jenna Grace — December 11, 2011 @ 1:35 PM

    Just made these, cookie dough still isn’t hardened, been three hours. I know I did the recipe right, since my mom made me triple check everything…very disappointed.

  125. 125

    Lori Lange — December 11, 2011 @ 3:13 PM

    Any chance you used evaporated milk instead of sweetened condensed milk?

    Jessie — December 19, 2011 @ 9:29 AM

    I found your recipe on Pintrest and I am so excited to make these for my neighborhood cookie exchange! Just a thought for those who seem to not like the flour or condensed milk taste…..my go-to cookie dough recipe is from Super Vegan, it is a dairy/egg free recipe and it is fabulous. http://supervegan.com/blog/entry.php?id=1471 You could also replace the white flour with whole wheat pastry flour and it will taste less dough-y and pasty. I am so excited to make these, thanks for the recipe!

  131. 131

    Karyn — December 20, 2011 @ 9:41 AM

    Not sure if anyone else shared this, but I found that the easiest way to coat them in chocolate is to use two spoons. Coat them both in the chocolate, then kind of juggle the cookie dough ball between the two until you cover it on all sides. Thanks for the great recipe, I’m giving these away to my coworkers as a Christmas gift along with Oreo Truffles. Happy Holidays!

  132. 132

    wsweetie — December 21, 2011 @ 10:45 PM

    I just made these and after 2 hours they don’t seem to be setting up at all…I’m thinking it’s because I used margarine instead of butter… I hate to waste what I’ve made, but I don’t see them being set up enough to roll into balls. I’m assuming you used salted butter? Maybe I’ll give it a go again with the salted butter.

  133. 133

    Lori Lange — December 22, 2011 @ 6:01 AM

    Yes, margarine will not work with this recipe. Much too soft!

  134. 134

    Tammy Destefano — December 22, 2011 @ 9:01 AM

    Angela — December 30, 2011 @ 6:03 PM

    I just got done making these and just put them in the fridge to cool. the mix itself came out great! have no problems with it being too runny. i can tell from the consistency that it will be perfect. i’ll keep you updated on the results! thanks for the recipe!

  136. 136

    Angela — December 30, 2011 @ 8:03 PM

    I just got done rolling these into the balls. first, i tasted the mix and its DELICIOUS! second, i found it 10x’s easier while shaping them into balls to keep my fingers wet. I kept a cold glass of water next to me and kept dipping them in when i noticed the dough starting to stick. my little balls came out perfect and i have exactly 50 of them.

  137. 137

    christina — January 4, 2012 @ 10:05 PM

    I just made these with my 2 year old daughter but were just eating the dough!!!.we.couldn’t wait for them to be covered in chocolate! There amazing! Is this a recipe that could be baked? Not that I want to just a thought! I love your site and your recipes! Thank you!

  138. 138

    Lori Lange — January 5, 2012 @ 7:21 AM

    No, you cannot bake them because there is no egg.

  139. 139

    Marie — January 20, 2012 @ 5:55 AM

    I just made these the other night, except, I just used a bag cookie dough mix, added 1/2 cup of butter, left out the egg and it still turned out great! Thanks for the recipe, Lori. I just found your site not long ago and I absolutely love it. I plan of trying many more of your recipes :)

  140. 140

    Marie — January 20, 2012 @ 7:47 AM

    Also Lori, do you know how long these can be refrigerated before they go bad? I only eat them like 2 at a time and I have so many lol.

  141. 141

    Lori Lange — January 20, 2012 @ 7:56 PM

    Yeah, makes a lot doesn’t it? I’m pretty sure we kept them for a week or so. Maybe try freezing a few?

  142. 142

    Lori Lange — January 20, 2012 @ 7:56 PM

    Yay!

    Marie — January 23, 2012 @ 10:20 AM

    Actually, I had some family over this weekend and they are gone haha, but I will remember this for next time. If I have them for over 1 week, I’ll freeze them. Hopefully the chocolate coating won’t crack. We shall see :)

  144. 144

    Gale — February 11, 2012 @ 4:44 PM

    stumbled on this in tumblr and wanted to try it. accidentally placed the balls in the freezer for a few minutes and realized i wasn’t supposed to. When i started rolling it in the white chocolate i melted, the dough sorta started to melt a bit too. so i wanna ask how you prevent that?

  145. 145

    Lori Lange — February 12, 2012 @ 8:10 AM

    You just have to make sure the chocolate isn’t steaming hot when you start rolling. Dip quickly!

  146. 146

    Nina — February 13, 2012 @ 12:37 PM

    I made these last night and they came out amazing! I followed to recipe exactly. The only difference was I left the cookie dough in the refridgerator for 2 hours which made it hard enough so it would not melt when I put it in the melted chocolate. I plan on making them again this weekend :)

  147. 147

    Danielle — March 10, 2012 @ 1:17 AM

    So is the only reason you’re using condense milk b/c of the lack of eggs?

  148. 148

    Lori Lange — March 10, 2012 @ 11:27 AM

    You need some kind of liquid in there to replace the eggs…

  149. 149

    Gabi — March 29, 2012 @ 7:55 PM

    I just made these with my daughter and they are sooooo sweet! They’re good, but sweet. This could be because of the chocolate and vanilla dip I used though. We tried all kinds of toppings and had a good time makng these together. I used your recipe and they were fine, but I also let the dough sit for quite a while before I rolled and dipped them.

  150. 150

    Emily — April 5, 2012 @ 9:56 PM

    Followed the recipe exactly and they turned out okay. The flour was very overpowering I think. They tasted much better dipped but the cookie dough still tasted a little bit weird because of the flour. I didnt particularly like them but people that tried them did and all of them got eaten.

  151. 151

    Matt — April 24, 2012 @ 11:03 PM

    Tried this recipe and found it to be one of my absolute favorites! I decided to try a variation, though, and used minted chocolate for the coating instead of regular chocolate – these were TO DIE FOR!!! Experiment with them and use different flavored chocolate for the coating; they come out great!!!

  152. 152

    Melissa — June 4, 2012 @ 9:03 AM

    I made these this weekend and everyone loved them! I have already passed on the link to friends! I did use some powdered sugar on my hands when rolling them and that made them slightly less sticky and a little easier to dip.

  153. 153

    Chickenman99 — June 19, 2012 @ 3:49 AM

    I just made these and they are delicious! I added about a 1/2 teaspoon of Kosher salt to the dough to balance out the sweetness. I made 37 truffles, the perfect size for my class party.

  154. 154

    Fatima — December 12, 2012 @ 2:15 PM

    Hi, these look delicious! I was wondering if it would come out different if I used just whole milk instead of condensed milk. Would it effect the taste or how well it holds?

  156. 156

    Lori Lange — December 12, 2012 @ 7:49 PM

    definitely not the same! It will be far too runny if you use regular milk.

  157. 157

    Brandi — January 13, 2013 @ 10:12 AM
