Yield: 48 truffles

Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Prep Time 1 hour 15 minutes


  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ cup diced maraschino cherries (about 15 cherries)
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ cup MY M&M'S® (I used milk chocolate)
  • ¼ cup mini semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 16 oz white chocolate candy coating (or almond bark), melted
  • ½ cup milk chocolate morsels, melted
  • 48 MY M&M'S®, for garnish
  • Sprinkles, for garnish, optional


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with butter until creamy. Add in sugars and maraschino cherries. Beat until combined.
  2. Add in flour and salt. Beat until blended. Fold in M&M'S and mini chocolate chips.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop (about 1 Tbsp) of cookie dough onto baking sheet. Freeze for about 1 hour.
  4. Using a toothpick, dip each frozen truffle into the melted white chocolate (tapping on the side of the bowl to remove excess). Return to parchment paper and repeat until all truffles are dipped.
  5. Place melted milk chocolate into a plastic bag, snip off the corner and drizzle over truffles. Immediately press your customized MY M&M'S® candy onto the top of each truffle. Add festive sprinkles, if desired. Allow truffles to set, about 15 minutes.
  6. Store in airtight container in refrigerator for about a week. ENJOY.
