Krave Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Forgive me.
IMGP7806 copy I think I might be a rebel.

These truffles have raw cookie dough. Yes, I used cookie dough that has raw eggs that I then dipped in melted chocolate, decorated and fed to my family. Keep in mind that I’ve included a couple of eggless cookie dough recipes at the bottom of this post.

I know, I know, it’s not very “safe”.
IMGP7824 However.

Let’s think about this. How many times during your lifetime have you licked the spoon/spatula/whisk after your mom made cookie dough/cake batter/brownie mix? How many times did she give you the damn spoon covered in chocolate stuff after she was finished mixing so you could finish it off? That’s right. A hell of a lot. (And keep in mind she could have scraped that spatula much better but she didn’t because she loves you and you were salivating over that shit.)

And, oh, you’re still here.

So, apparently in the 1980’s there was an outbreak of salmonella that was linked back to a dairy or a bakery, or both. Google it if you want.

It won’t change the fact that you licked that spatula.

IMGP7801 That being said, I’m not advocating the consumption of raw eggs. Eat them at your own discretion. Hell, we use our own discretion when we go out for sushi knowing there’s a risk. There’s risks everywhere; you just have to be comfortable in choosing your risks to take. These truffles, however, can be made with egg or eggless cookie dough.

They’re easy peasy.
IMGP7794 Speaking of consumption, have y’all tried Kellogg’s Krave cereal? It’s basically a vanilla flavored, fluffy, yet crunchy type of cereal filled with chocolate in the middle – and my family is obsessed with it. I have a feeling when I buy it, they hide the shit from each other. They are literally bottomless pits that I can’t seem to keep up with; I seriously cannot control these appetites.  I’m talking about a 17 year old boy, a 15 year old girl and a 43 year old man that has a sugar craving that is almost unnatural.

And no, Kellogg’s is not paying me; this is not a sponsored post.

So, since my favorite people in the world are obsessed with this stuff I thought I would play around and make a dessert with it. And probably piss them off by using it.

*wink*

(They got a new dessert out of it, so they’ll be ok). The truffles taste just like you would expect them to, but with a fun crunchiness.

As promised, a couple of eggless cookie dough recipes –

Krave Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Bring the cookie dough to room temperature.
  • In a stand mixer, combine the cookie dough and cereal on low until thoroughly combined.
  • Roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper; place in freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Melt dark chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until melted.
  • Remove truffles from freezer and dip in chocolate, pouring it over the truffles to make sure they're covered and place back on parchment paper. (They will harden pretty fast, especially if you use Chocoley chocolate).
  • Just sayin'.
  • Melt white chocolate the same way as the dark, and drizzle over the truffles after they have hardened.
  • Decorate as desired.
