Like most people, I enjoy cookie dough more than the actual cookies and these cookie dough truffle balls are just bite sized cuties that I can’t get enough of!
I recently tried a recipe for chocolate chip cookie dough truffles with cream cheese and I didn’t like since it was a bit tangy.
I can’t understand why people like it so much because hands down my Mom’s recipe is much better!
My family and friends request this A LOT during Christmas time…hehe.
This chocolate chip cookie dough ball recipe is:
- Quick and easy to make
- Requires simple ingredients
- Easily modified to make different flavors
- Great as a snack or dessert
- Great as a homemade gift during the holiday season
You can make these truffles with the following add-ins:
- Chocolate chips (Dark, Semisweet, White)
- Dried fruits
- Chopped nuts
- Chocolate chunks (chop up your favorite candy bar and mix in into the dough)
- A bit of sea salt
- Crushed candy canes
Here are some FLAVOR variations you can try with these no bake cookie dough truffles:
- For the holiday season, make candy cane cookie dough truffles by dipping the truffles in melted chocolate and then garnishing with some crushed candy canes.
- For a nice chance, you can make m&m cookie dough truffles by replacing chocolate chips with m&m candies. This is a favorite among kids, especially at birthday parties.
- If you like the sweet and salty flavor combination, make cookie dough truffles with sea salt by dipping the truffles in melted chocolate and then garnishing with a sprinkle of high quality sea salt.
- For vegan cookie dough truffles, replace regular milk with soy milk, almond milk or coconut milk and replace butter with vegan margarine and replace regular chocolate chips with vegan chocolate chips. To make them a bit healthier, replace granulated sugar and brown sugar with coconut sugar.
- For gluten free cookie dough truffles, use gluten free flour instead of regular all-purpose flour.
- To make easter egg cookie dough truffles, shape this dough into oval egg shapes rather than balls and then dip them in chocolate and cover them in sprinkles.
Here are some TIPS for the best cookie dough truffles recipe:
- Use UNSALTED butter since salted butter makes these truffles very salty.
- You can use mini chocolate chips or the regular sized ones.
- DON’T add too much milk because that will make the dough very sticky.
- If the dough ever becomes too STICKY to handle, chill it for about an hour, which will make the rolling much easier.
- Use the BEST quality chocolate chips you can find because it really enhances the overall flavor of these truffles.

I added a packet of Vital Proteins collagen peptides into the dough to give it a boost of nutrition.
That doesn’t obviously transform these truffles into energy balls (lol!) but I feel like I have a mommy win when I sneak something healthy into a recipe.
Since the powder is colorless and flavorless, he never even knew this protein powder was in there and really enjoyed it!
You can also use this protein powder in smoothies and breakfast muffins to start off your day right.
Well, that’s all for today.
