Reviews for Cookie Dough Truffles
"I left out the walnuts but thought these turned out great even without them. This is just like eating cookie dough and the kids and grown ups love it!"
"These cookie dough truffles are great! I made them once for a bake sale, and they were gone fast. I omit the nuts and use Baker's milk or semi-sweet chocolate."
"Instructions were fine I made them for the first time and all went well. My only problem is they are tricky to coat. Being at room temperature for several minutes made them get softer. What I did was drop a cookie dough ball or several and roll around inside the chocolate coating then place on waxed paper using a fork. These will make good snacks or gifts. With the leftover chocolate you can put peanuts or almonds and make clusters or chocolate coated peanuts. Nice recipe, will always consider whenever I have chocolate candy coating available.Edit: Roll them in finely chopped almonds or another nut after coating. It really adds to it if you like that"
"These candies are wonderful to give as gifts during the holidays. Always include the recipe."
"I thought these were too sweet. Think I'll go with dark chocolate chips for the coating next time. I followed the suggestion of using a cookie scoop and then shaping the balls after refrigerTion.n. I am curious how people dipped them. I used a toothpick, which worked OK but left an opening in the coating. I then covered the opening with the re-melted chocolate."
"We've been making these for years and they are always a hit. The kids love to help. Like apeeples said, wet your hands or pop the dough in the fridge for awhile before rolling. We've never had any problems. We do just dip the tops, and not the full ball, so that makes the coating process easier."
"These are SO good, and do taste just like cookie dough! The dough is sticky, but I didn't have any trouble rolling them - just wet my hands and them into balls, refrigerated them for an hour or so and then dipped them in chocolate (I added a small amount of shortening to my chocolate to make it easier to dip). Very easy and delicious recipe!"
"the dough is VERY sticky.....impossible to roll into balls without first chilling........they warm up to room temp too quickly while trying to dip in chocolate and quickly become too soft to work with, requiring re-refrigeration before continuing with the dipping process. I don't consider this a 'bad' recipe....but the instructions are, to say the least, incomplete. and to say that they are easy to make and then give bad instructions is a 'recipe for disaster'."
