Give the homemade gift that everyone wants to receive: Monster Cookie Dough Truffles.

Easy and delicious Monster Cookie Dough Truffles.

We live in a world full of people who are obsessed with cookie dough. And really, who can resist sneaking spoonfuls of sweet and delicious cookie dough? I know I can’t and my daughters are relentless when they know it’s cookie-making time! They’re almost more excited about stealing cookie dough than they are about the actual finished cookies (almost).

Monster Cookie Dough Truffles are so tasty and don't have any eggs in them!

And with the obvious concern about raw eggs and salmonella, the creation of eggless “edible” cookie dough was pretty much a stroke of genius from whoever came up with that! I have edible in quotes because I’ve always been of the belief that a teeny bit raw cookie dough won’t kill you. But I can see how we would all take precautions if we were going to eat large amounts of the stuff. And after tasting these, you will want to eat large amounts of them.

Monster Cookie Dough Truffles make the perfect gift!

And of course, I couldn’t just stop at regular chocolate chip cookie dough, delicious though it may be. Oh no, I had to take it an extra step and make truffles inspired by Monster Cookies. For those unfamiliar with Monster cookies, they are cookies that not only contain chocolate chips, but also peanut butter, M&M’s and often oatmeal.

I seriously love all of these things and was thrilled to include them with the exception of the oatmeal because I figured that raw oats might not be the most desirable texture to bite into (although if raw oats are your thing, by all means, throw some in. You do you.).

How To Make Monster Cookie Dough Truffles

These are seriously so easy to throw together. You mix a simple dough, roll it into balls, and pop ’em in the freezer for 30 minutes before rolling them in melted chocolate and topping them with sprinkles. Though sprinkles aren’t traditionally included in Monster Cookie recipes, they were much too fun not to add. These are super kid-friendly and they’d make an excellent gift (pair them with these super delicious and dangerously addictive Candied Pecans!).

THese Monster Cookie Dough Truffles are s easy to make.

    Oh these are gonna to be on the cookie list! My truffles are hit or miss when the dough hits the melted chocolate. My dough ends up in the chocolate making a mess. Is the freezer step the best offense? Thanks Kristin! laura
