Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough truffles are one of my favorite treats on the blog. And in real life. They are really a genius treat.

Bites of cookie dough dipped in chocolate. I mean, really, who doesn’t LOVE cookie dough?

I know my kids love grabbing bites of cookie dough out of the mixer…this one is Egg Free!

Last week I made these delicious truffles. And as I was carrying the whole tray of truffles from my “photo shoot” back to the kitchen, I dropped everything on the floor. Every. Single. Truffle.

Sadly, I tried to pick them up and hope the 5 second rule would apply.

But did you know if you don’t vacuum in my house for 5 days…the floor gets covered in dog hair? yeah. True story.

I couldn’t save them. I was fortunate enough to eat about 4 (okay maybe 6) of them before the shoot. They are that good. “Break the diet” kinda good. Well, except I don’t diet.

Actually, no need to diet when these had to go in the garbage. I hope when YOU make them that doesn’t happen. That all your family and friends get to try them. They would look so pretty on your Thanksgiving dessert table.

Don’t you agree?

  1. Totally have been there! Right now our kitchen is carpeted, so it’s a double burn when you drop something: the stuff is ruined because the carpet hides all the dirt and then the carpet is disgusting because it hides all the dirt. These look amazing — glad you got to enjoy a few! Yum!

  2. Although I will still be making these, I wonder what the wafers are used for? The baker forgot to explain first how to melt wafers and when to put them in. I don’t even see any evidence of a wafer in the pictures of the truffles. Hmmmm… Also failed to instruct how to melt the chocolate to dip the dough in. I know we should all know, but for first time bakers, it might be helpful to give instructions on how to do that and maybe how much chocolate you would need.

    1. The wafers are melted and that is what you dip the frozen truffle into. That is what I’m referencing when I say “dip truffle into melted Ghirardelli chocolate”

  3. I would have most likely cried my eyes out if I had dropped these truffles! That’s just terrible! But on the bright side, that just gives you an excuse to make them again. WIN. 🙂 These look totally poppable and addicting—my family would love them! Pinned.

  4. PUMPKIN chocolate chip cookie dough? In a truffle?
    STOP IT (except don’t.) because these are amazing! I am pretty sure I could eat the whole batch. Pinned!

  5. R.I.P. first batch of truffles. I love pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and I’m sure I’d love these as well. Pinned!

  6. That is SO tragic, dropping them! Did you scream? A lot? I would’ve.
    Love these! Pumpkin cookie dough needs to be eaten, for sure. This looks like the best way!

  7. What a sad day to drop such gorgeous looking truffles!!! At least you were able to eat a few before sending them sprawling! Although I’m giggling because I remember the fudge incident from a few years ago 🙂

  8. Omg you REMADE truffles…I cannot think of a more annoying thing to remake! So sorry! These totally look amazing and I love the gooey-ish center and the combo of pumpkin + chocolate + cookie dough! Pinned!

  9. I love a Golden Retriever….the 5 second rule doesn’t work at my house anymore either, ha! Sad, but true. Anyway, love the addition of pumpkin in these truffles! They look amazing 🙂

  10. Awww I am sorry. I would be so bummed if I dropped them too. That just sucks. Can I tell you something? I have never tried truffles. It’s one of those things that I am not sure if I will like. But Aimee these pumpkin ones look so tasty and then you have those snickerdoodle ones. Man your killing a girl here who does try to eat healthy. 🙂 Pinned!!

  11. This story makes me so sad! But I’m glad you got your photos and got to eat a few 🙂 The pumpkin filling is such a pretty color 🙂

  12. OMG, I would have CRIED if I had dropped all those beauties! Glad you managed to re-make them for us. 🙂

  13. Not only do these look DELISH… I absolutely love how easily you made them look perfect for Fall with the seasonal candy balls on top! Love that!

  14. So sad to hear that these babies went tumbling. At least you got to eat a few before hand. They look so gooey in the center. I bet these truffles just melt in your mouth.

  15. Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry you dropped these. I dropped a whole tray of eclairs last year when walking back from my photo session. And of course they landed glaze side down and oh how the dog hair wanted to stick to that glaze. Sadness. Glad you managed to eat a few before you lost them!
