These easy, no bake cookie dough truffles contain just 3 ingredients and are so simple to make!
It's hard to resist the sugary, chocolatey flavors of cookie dough. Now it's so easy to make edible cookie dough at home. But even EASIER is using storebought edible cookie dough!
As soon as I found out that Pillsbury made edible cookie dough, I HAD to try it out. It's so tasty! And, I love using this to make super easy, fast 3-ingredient Cookie Dough Truffles.
IF YOU WANT TO MAKE YOUR OWN HOMEMADE EDIBLE COOKIE DOUGH: I have a recipe for Irresistible Edible Cookie Dough Bites in my cookbook, The Super Easy Teen Baking Cookbook, on page 32.
Perfect bite-sized dessert for any occasion
One of the things you'll love about these no-bake cookie dough truffles is how versatile they are! Switch up the chocolate coating and the sprinkles, and you've got yummy bite-size desserts for almost any occasion!
We love serving these truffles at:
- Easter - use white chocolate with pastel colored sprinkles or Easter bunny sprinkles
- Birthday parties - you can use a variety of colored melting wafers with sprinkles to match the birthday theme
- Baby showers - use pink, blue, or yellow chocolate melting wafers with cute sprinkles
- Anniversaries, weddings, and award viewing parties (think Oscars, Emmys, SAG awards) - use white chocolate with these edible gold star sprinkles or top with edible gold leaf
- Christmas - coat with green and red melting wafers or white chocolate and top with Christmas-colored sprinkles
You get the idea, right? Mix up the chocolate and sprinkle colors for Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day (or make my Mint Oreo Truffles!), 4th of July, and any other holiday!
Kitchen tools and equipment
For this recipe, you just need a few basic kitchen tools:
Baking sheet - Use a baking sheet lined with either wax paper or parchment paper to put the truffles on to set. You could also line plates with wax paper or parchment paper instead, if you don't have room in your fridge for a quarter or half baking sheet.
Cookie scoop - A cookie scoop helps you create truffles that are the same size. You could also simply use a tablespoon to scoop out the dough.
Microwaveable bowl - You'll need a microwave-safe bowl to melt the white chocolate and coconut oil together.
Forks - Use two forks to dip the cookie dough balls into the melted white chocolate.
You really only need three ingredients to make these truffles. Then there are some optional additional fun decorative ingredients you can add if you wish!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough - You can make your own edible cookie dough at home. I have a recipe for Irresistible Edible Cookie Dough Bites in my cookbook, The Super Easy Teen Baking Cookbook, on page 32. Or, you could buy a package of Pillsbury's Edible Cookie Dough.
White chocolate - You'll need either a white chocolate baking bar, chopped up, or white chocolate melting wafers. I use these white chocolate melting wafers because they taste wonderful and melt beautifully for a smooth finish.
I do NOT recommend using white chocolate chips, since those contain ingredients that are meant to help the chips keep their shape. So those don't melt as smoothly. That said, you can use white chocolate chips if that's what you have. You might just need to whisk or mix them more vigorously to make the chocolate smooth.
Coconut oil - A little bit of coconut oil helps the white chocolate coating set beautifully.
OPTIONAL: decorative sprinkles or melting chocolate wafers in another color - description of what it is/how it is used with affiliate link where possible
How to make 3-ingredient no-bake truffles
Line a baking sheet or plate that will fit into your refrigerator with wax paper or parchment paper. Set aside.
Scoop out the packaged cookie dough with a spoon or cookie scoop and roll into small 1" to 1.5" balls.
Continue rolling until you use all of the dough and set them aside on a large plate or the prepared baking sheet.
In a microwaveable bowl, add the white chocolate and coconut oil.
Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until just melted.
Use two forks to gently dip the cookie dough balls into the melted chocolate mixture to coat the cookie dough, then place on the prepared wax paper.
If you are adding decorative chocolate drizzles or sprinkles, do so immediately, before the chocolate sets.
Refrigerate until the chocolate has set, which can take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes.
Transfer fully chilled truffles to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or until you're ready to serve them.
Chocolate chip cookie dough made without eggs and with coconut flour can be eaten safely. It is not generally considered safe to eat raw cookie dough that has eggs or all-purpose flour in it.
I've found the best melting chocolates for truffles to be these chocolate melting wafers and these chocolate baking bars. These are made to melt for desserts, and have a smooth shiny texture when melted and cooled.
Store truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 or 5 days.
