Contest-Winning Chocolate Truffle Cookies
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch
Makesabout 4 dozen
Turned out really tasty & puffy even with the small modification (I used butter+cocoa rather than the chocolate mix for the first step). Definitely will make these again.
Although following the recipe as written, my cookies were not puffy like shown, but a little flatter. I had expected a moister texture in the center, like a truffle would be, and these were dryer than we liked. My husband's favorite is dark chocolate desserts, and thought he might enjoy these, but we decided they are just "OK", and probably will not make again. Not knowing why mine turned out differently than the recipe pictures, I am thinking it could have been too much liquid from our eggs.... I would love to have a true measurement of the amount of egg used for this since we raise our own chickens and have many varied sizes of eggs. Perhaps my idea of a large sized egg was not the same as the submitter of this recipe. this cookie has great potential for the chocolate lover.... I just need to figure out how to make it puffy and truffle like in the center.
These turned out great. For the folks that had them spread like cow pies,might have used margarine. Margarine has a higher content of water, and the whipped type is really bad, and doesn’t work well in recipes. I followed the recipe as written, and they were just like the picture. Yummy ??
Hi! The cookies are delicious, my whole family loved them! Even though they are amazing, I don’t know what I’m doing wrong because instead of coming out fluffy just like in the picture, they come out flat. What can I do to make them rise and stay that way?
The cookies came out pretty, I did refrigerate as suggested and they came out okay. I think I will keep my recipe that is similar, but yummier.
Amazing! If you love chocolate, you will love this cookie! My family members that just like cookies, and are not passionate about chocolate thought this cookie was good, but not amazing. Of course, they couldn't gobble them up any faster despite their claim. As a side note, I used mini chips and they rested in the refrigerator for closer to 36 hours than the 24 required.
MAYbe this cookie just wasn’t my type but I didn’t really care for them - I bake for a restaurant and they didn’t sell well either. They looked great though
I make this exact recipe every Christmas -- have to make a couple batches, because the first batch is gone before the 24th. I do differ on one thing, I roll the balls in powdered sugar before baking. Yummy!!!
Has anyone tried freezing the dough balls?
I followed the recipe exactly except that i used mini chocolate chips like someone had suggested and they came out great. They are very rich. They taste just like a molten lava cake. If you are a chocolate lover these are for you!
