This No-Bake Cookie Dough Truffles recipe quickly and easily combines everyday ingredients to form an egg-free, creamy cookie dough that’s studded with chocolate chips, rolled into balls, and then coated in chocolate.

While I’ve created plenty of truffle recipes (Strawberry Shortcake Truffles, Lemon Truffles, Peanut Butter Truffles, Peppermint Oreo Truffles, and plenty more) and batches of bite-sized balls (Birthday Cake Oreo Balls, Pecan Pie Balls, Peanut Butter & Jelly Balls), my list was lacking a raw cookie dough recipe.

With a few minor tweaks and revisions to my Edible Cookie Dough, Cookie Dough Bars, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip recipes, I have created another version of raw cookie dough in the form of these no-bake balls.

I make my cookie dough edible by eliminating the egg (I use milk in its place to give the dough the added moisture it needs) AND heat-treating the flour (eggs and untreated flour have a high likelihood of containing contaminants like Salmonella and E. coli.), so these truffles are totally safe to eat.

Don’t forget, if you don’t feel like forming them into balls and waiting for the chocolate coating to chill, you can always eat the dough by the spoonful!

  • Quick and easy to make using basic kitchen staples.
  • Simple no-bake recipe that can be doubled or tripled so you can stock up on your sweets.
  • Everyone loves eating raw cookie dough, especially when it’s dipped in chocolate.
  • Made without eggs and uses heat-treated flour so they are safe to eat!
  • Fun to decorate and customize for any holiday or special occasion.
  • Perfectly portioned, bite-sized balls that make great portable snacks or anytime sweet treats.

  • Tasty Toppings: Instead of adding a chocolate drizzle to your truffles, you can top them with sea salt, chopped nuts, sprinkles, toasted coconut, or mini chocolate chips.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to eat raw cookie dough?

Traditional raw cookie dough is not safe to eat. The raw egg and uncooked flour have a high likelihood of containing contaminants like Salmonella and E. coli. The edible cookie dough in this truffles recipe does not contain any egg and the flour is pre-treated by baking it prior to mixing it into the dough, which makes it completely safe to consume.

What is the difference between cookie dough and edible cookie dough?

Edible cookie dough is made the same way as regular cookie dough. The only difference is that the flour is heat-treated to get rid of dangerous bacteria, and no egg is used in the edible cookie dough version. That’s what makes it safe to eat without baking first.

How do I pre-treat the flour?

To pre-treat your flour, simply spread it on a baking sheet and bake it at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. This will kill off any lingering bacteria that may be present.

Can I double or triple this recipe?

Yes, it is easy to double or triple this recipe. As written, this truffle recipe will make approximately 15 1″ cookie dough truffles but you can easily double or triple it to make sure you have a sweet supply on hand!
