Cookie Dough Truffles
We all have that one thing we can’t resist – for me, and it’s Peanut Butter Cups – preferably frozen! However, I married a chocolate chip cookie junkie.
I truly believe Brian would eat chocolate chip cookie dough in just about every imaginable form! He even eats it with raw eggs (blech – I give him “the speech” every time I see him do it).
Luckily, these Cookie Dough Truffles have NO RAW EGGS, and the flour is baked to prevent any food-poisoning! Now, he doesn’t have to listen to my soapbox raw-cookie-dough-eating rant … and neither do you!
These are perfect for the holidays! I love giving them as gifts, and I almost always have a tray of these for any party we host or are invited to!
Let’s see how to make them …
