TRUFFLE STUFFED CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES — Chocolate chip cookie dough is wrapped around a chocolate truffle, then baked until golden on the outside and soft, chewy and chocolatey in the middle.
Yes, you read that title correctly–Truffle Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies! And it means what you think it means…..there is an entire chocolate truffle baked into the center of these decadent, giant cookies.
I got the idea for these cookies from my friend Sarah, who nonchalantly mentioned stuffing truffles into her favorite chocolate chip cookie dough.
She’s the same friend who gave me the idea for my Oreo Cheesecake Stuffed Waffle Cones, so I think we can all agree that she’s a baking genius.
Obviously, if your going to stuff a chocolate truffle into a cookie, it’s going to be a big cookie, and it’s going to start with a big batch of cookie dough.
I usually get about 18 cookies from this recipe, but they are huge, so if you’re not planning to share or freeze some, you can definitely half the recipe.
I used Lindt truffles in the center of my cookies, and they worked perfectly. And there are so many flavors of Lindt truffles, the possibilities for fillings are endless.
I like to use a combination of milk chocolate chips and dark chocolate truffles, or vice versa. But you could go with all milk or all dark chocolate.
And I’m pretty sure there are Lindt caramel filled truffles, which would also make an amazing filling for these cookies. Just make sure you’ve had your truffles in the refrigerator so they’re nice and cold when you put the cookies in the oven.
It wouldn’t hurt to chill them in the freezer either, although I the cookies don’t turn out quite as well if the truffles are completely frozen.
I shared these Truffle Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies with friends and they declared them the best chocolate chip cookies they’d ever had, so you’ll definitely want to give these huge, indulgent cookies a try!
