Did you happen to catch these little gems a few weeks ago when I shared them as a guest post on Lil Luna?

Raise your hand if you are as obsessed with cookie dough as I am!  When I was pregnant with Gavin, I made cookies all the time (like at least a batch a week) just for the excuse to sneak a nibble or two of cookie dough!

So I’m super obsessed with these Easter Egg Cookie Dough Truffles!

Since I’m trying to keep my pregnancy weight gain at Baby Buluga level and not Shamu level, I’ve been shipping off desserts to Nathan’s work left and right.  Actually a week ago I sent off four dishes at once since I’m trying to work ahead.  Nathan came home later that night and mentioned that I was being blamed for spare tires and the road to diabetes.

Oops.

Well, I spared them these babies!  Because they are sooooooooo tasty!!  I really needed to keep them all to myself.  I have been limiting myself to one a day, so they should last me right up until Easter.  And me giving birth.

{Yikes!  That’s coming up fast!!}

I know that dipping truffles can seem really tricky and intimidating, but these are so easy.  They stay together perfectly, and they dip beautifully.  And the lines on top are just created by thinning the chocolate with a little bit of vegetable shortening, and then drizzling with a fork.

The ones you see are the best ones, lol.  You might want to practice your drizzling skills on some wax paper before you go for it on the eggs.  That way you will also know if your chocolate is thin enough.

And if you are more generous than I am and want to package these up and pop them in some easter baskets, I have a cute little printable that you can use to bag them up!  People will think that you bought these fancy treats at a bakery :)  Click here to get the printable.

Easter Egg Cookie Dough Truffles

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup of butter, softened
  • 3/4 packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • pink, blue, purple, and white candy melts

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a large stand mixer, cream the butter and the brown sugar until light and fluffy, about two minutes. Beat in the vanilla.
  2. Slowly add the flour, scraping down the sides as necessary.
  3. With the mixer still running, slowly add in the sweetened condensed milk. You may need to stop the mixer periodically to scrape down the sides.
  4. Once it is fully combined, stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Form the dough into one inch balls, and then shape into eggs. Place on a wax paper lined pan and cover loosely with plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight.
  6. Melt the candy melts according to the directions on the bag. Keeping the truffles in the refrigerator, and removing only three or four at a time, dip them in the candy melts one at a time with a fork. Gently tap off any excess chocolate and let dry on wax paper.

      Lol!! When I thought of them, Sarah, I made the conscious decision not to Google it because I figured there was NO WAY I was the first person to think of them and I just didn’t want to know, lol!

    The colors are so pretty! I love how you packaged the truffles!! What fun to include some of these cuties in a care package! Pinned and on my list to make this week. Thanks! ( I love to decorate with drizzling chocolate and recently found chocoley.com. They have drizzle white chocolate that comes in a plastic bottle ready for zapping and drizzling. You can easily color the white chocolate too. The consistency is perfect every time and I get better control with the bottle than with a fork or spoon. :) )

    I made these truffles as little balls and dipped the tops into chocolate rather than submerging each individual one. They turned out really well, and they feel lighter when you eat them since there isn’t a big chocolate layer surrounding them! I sprinkled each one with sugar sprinkles and put them in mini muffin wrappers to transport. Thank you for this great recipe!
