What could be better than eating cookie dough? Eating cookie dough that is dipped in chocolate! These 3-ingredient truffles are easy to make, and oh-so-satisfying!

Ingredients

  • 1 roll Pillsbury™ refrigerated Chocolatey Chip Cookie dough
  • 1 3/4 cups (375 mL) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 5 tsp (25 mL) shortening

Method

  1. Shape cookie dough into 24 (1 1/4-inch) balls; place on cookie sheet lined with waxed paper or parchment paper. Refrigerate 15 minutes.
  2. In medium microwaveable bowl, microwave chocolate chips and shortening uncovered on High 60 seconds. Stir; continue to microwave in 10-second increments until mixture is melted and can be stirred smooth.
  3. Using 2 forks, dip and roll cookie dough balls, one at a time, in melted chocolate; tap off excess chocolate. Return to lined cookie sheet. If chocolate has cooled too much, reheat. Spoon remaining melted chocolate into small resealable food-storage plastic bag; partially seal bag. Cut off tiny corner of bag. Squeeze bag to pipe over top of truffles. Refrigerate truffles about 30 minutes or until chocolate is set.
  4. Store truffles tightly covered in refrigerator up to 1 day or in freezer up to 2 weeks. Thaw frozen truffles in refrigerator and serve same day.

Expert Tips

  • For a quick drizzle and a more casual look, dip a fork in the melted chocolate and quickly move your wrist back and forth to create a zig-zag pattern.
  • Plastic forks are the key to easy dipping. Remove the centre two tines of two forks, and you’ll have wide-pronged tools perfect for gently dipping cookie truffles.
