Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough Truffles
These football chocolate chunk cookie dough truffles are easy, delicious and perfect for the Big Game!
Hi friends! How are you guys? If you were in the path of the storm this past few days, I hope you are safe and warm now. The big blizzard missed us here in Upstate but it was freezing so we’ve had a quiet weekend relaxing indoors and making soup to stay warm.
I also whipped up these eggless chocolate chunk cookie dough truffles for the second time! Rumor has it there is a big game coming up and we are all in need of football shaped/themed food. Well, I ate my weight in cookie dough and chocolate before shaping a few into footballs.
These truffles are easy to make and I know first hand they go really fast at a party. I sent a plateful with my friend last week to a Sunday party and she said they flew off the plates. I don’t blame them, there’s nothing like cookie dough and chocolate. I used my favorite chocolate chip cookie mix from Krusteaz to make the cookie dough here. Leaving out the egg in the instructions kept these safe to eat raw and also makes it easier for you to make them dairy-free if you use dairy-free butter.
As your prepare for the game, whip up these easy football cookie dough truffles for your guests and try not to eat too many yourself.

- microwave in 30 seconds bursts. Mix until creamy.

- completely. Place dough on the cookie sheet. Chill truffles until chocolate hardens.
