Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

I dare you to look at that beautiful rich chocolate in the picture above and not want to make these cookies. If you succeed, you have more willpower than me! From the moment I saw these cookies on Pinterest (I have an addiction!), I just couldn’t resist. And once I made them, I couldn’t resist eating them. You don’t want to know how many of these I ate. Well, maybe you do want to know, but I don’t want to tell you. :)

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

I love these cookies.  Are you tired of me saying that yet? Because really, I love everything I share on here. But these chocolate truffle cookies are really really good. Intense. Rich. Chocolatey. They really do taste like a truffle in cookie form. And, if you’re anything like me, a truffle in cookie form is almost too good to be true. Try these and let me know what you think! :)

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Yield: about 4 1/2 dozen.

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups butter, room temperature
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 cups chocolate chips
approx. 1/3 cup cocoa powder (for rolling)
approx. 2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar (for rolling)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Sift in cocoa powder and salt, and mix well. Beat in sour cream and vanilla extract. With the mixer on low, blend in flour. Stir in chocolate chips.

Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and roll in the cocoa powder and place on baking sheet. (If the dough is hard to handle, refrigerate the dough for 30-60 minutes before shaping the cookies.) Bake for 10 minutes or until cookies are just barely set. Let cool on baking sheet for 3-5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

When cookies have reached room temperature, after about 30-45 minutes, roll in powdered sugar until completely coated. Store in an airtight container.

    I just found your blog last month when I was looking for different pumpkin recipes. You have some really great recipes on here. I made these yesterday for a Christmas Party that my mom was having. So many people raved about them and have sent her emails asking me for the recipe. I’m going to try the Candy Cane Biscotti this weekend. :)

    I also found these on Pinterest. My son has an egg allergy, so I’m always looking for baked good recipes that I don’t have to make “egg free.” These fit the bill perfectly! I made these today for a party tomorrow and they came out AMAZING!!!! I’m not sure that there will be enough left to actually make it to the party. Thanks for sharing another great recipe! :)

    I soooo want to make these. One question though. When you say to roll the cookies in cocoa powder you didn’t specify if it was unsweetened cocoa powder or not. Is it in fact unsweetened like it is for the actual cookies, or not?

    • megan replied: — September 4th, 2012 @ 6:26 am

      Yes, unsweetened cocoa powder. Hope you like them! :)

    These are, by far, the BEST cookies I have ever eatten, much less baked. I just can’t seem to get enough of them, and that’s dangerous. Everyone who has tried them is also in love with them. Thanks soooooo much for sharing!!!
