Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Truffles. Enjoy your favorite childhood cookie in truffle form! This egg free cookie dough is rolled in white chocolate and dusted with cinnamon sugar.


For the Truffle center:

  • 4 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar

For the Coating:

  • 16 ounce Ghirardelli white chocolate wafers, divided
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons cinnamon/sugar mixture


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and butter with sugars until smooth and creamy. Beat in a flour, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and cream of tartar. Scoop by small tablespoon (I use a 1 Tbsp scoop) onto a parchment paper lined freezer safe baking sheet. Scoop all the dough into balls. Freeze for 2 hours (or overnight).
  2. Melt white chocolate wafers. Remove about ¼ cup and reserve for later. To remaining melted white chocolate, add ½ tsp ground cinnamon. Using a toothpick, dip each frozen truffle into melted white chocolate, tapping side of bowl gently to remove excess. Repeat until all truffles have been dipped. Using remaining ¼ cup white chocolate, pour into a ziploc sandwich bag.
  3. Snip off end and drizzle over coated truffles. Sprinkle immediately with cinnamon/sugar mixture. Allow to set, about 15 minutes. Store truffles in refrigerator for one week, or freezer for one month.


  • Be sure to heat treat flour before using!
  • I love using this metal cookie scoop for evenly sized truffles.
  • You can prepare the cookie dough ahead of time and store the balls in the freezer until you're ready to make truffles.
  • If storing longer than a few hours, transfer frozen cookie dough balls from the baking pan to a freezer safe container to preserve freshness.
  • I store Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Truffles in the refrigerator. They're delicious cold!
  • For longer storage, keep the truffles in the freezer!
