I made chocolate truffles as a Christmas tradition for many years. I created this recipe to incorporate my truffles into the center of fudgy cookies. It was a hit with friends and family.—Patricia Harmon, Baden, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars until blended. Beat in egg and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, cocoa and baking soda; gradually beat into creamed mixture.
  2. Shape level tablespoons of dough into 2-1/2-in.-wide patties. Press onto bottoms and up the sides of greased mini-muffin cups.
  3. Bake until set, 8-10 minutes. Immediately press a deep indentation in center of each with the end of a wooden spoon handle. Cool in pans 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. For filling, in a small heavy saucepan, combine chocolate chips, cream and butter; cook and stir over medium heat until smooth. Remove from heat.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolks; return all to pan, whisking constantly. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and a thermometer reads at least 160°, 15-17 minutes. Do not allow to boil. Immediately transfer filling to a bowl; cool 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Spoon 1 tablespoon filling into each crust. Top with sprinkles. Refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.

These were delicious. I had extra filling, so I chilled it and made some truffles. I over baked the cups slightly. Next time I will remove from oven sooner.

I made 1/2 of this recipe & I'm glad, I won't make them again. Center is way to bitter. Maybe Milk Choc. Chips?? Hard to get out of pan, a total waste of ingredients.

They are delicious but I found them difficult to get out of the pan despite greasing them generously. About 1/3 of mine broke and were not fillable.

These are delicious, would you know a way to incorporate peanut butter into this recipe? Email. Velvetswan@aol.com

Delicious. Perfect amount of dough for 30 cups. Dough is easy to handle. Twice as much filling as needed. You could double the dough or halve the filling. I am using my leftover filling on ice cream. You can't go wrong!

These are a bit time consuming, but a very rich, very special treat!
