By the way, on a random note… I got a NEW camera and I am having a blast using it.

I kept getting as CLOSE as I could to this mocha caramel truffle, just so I can take a picture of all the ooey gooey goodness inside it and share it with all of you…hehe.

Hubby was quite AMUSED…lol.

Anyways, at first…I was just going to leave these mocha truffles as is because I was in love with the delicate DESIGN on top of them.

But then I did something, which took them to a whole new level of GORGEOUS-NESS! 😉

I brought out my bottle of silver edible spray and sprayed the tops, then wiped off excess with a wet paper towel.

The end result was STUNNING!

I think the hint of silver really gave these mocha caramel cookie dough truffles a a SOPHISTICATED look.

They look like they came from a fancy, high end chocolate store! 😉

Great for GIFT GIVING too!

mocha caramel cookie dough truffles 6To make these mocha caramel cookie dough truffles, you will need the following ingredients:

1/2 cup milk chocolate discs (Bada Bing Bada Boom dipping and coating formula)
1/4 cup caramel
Cookie dough (Mocha cookie dough: omit the egg white and add 2 tbsp milk or water)
Candy mold (# 90-5635 )
Paintbrush
Edible silver spray
Water
Paper towels

Note 1:
My family eats raw eggless cookie dough a all the time. I used raw mocha cookie dough in these truffles and omitted the egg whites to make it eggless. This way, it can be eaten safely. But, I know that some people are still against eating cookie dough, even if it is eggless. If so, you can substitute my mocha cookie dough recipe with your own raw mocha cookie dough recipe (made with oat flour or coconut flour e.t.c) or use whatever cookie dough recipe you like.

Note 2:
I used the candy mold, caramel and melted milk chocolate discs from Chocoley.

Here are the steps:

Step 1:
Melt the chocolate in the microwave.

Use a paintbrush to paint a thick coating of chocolate inside the cavities of the candy cold.
Place the tray in the freezer for 5 minutes or until the chocolate hardens.

While the chocolate in the mold in chilling, prepare the mocha cookie dough.
It will be slightly crumbly coz I like it that way.
But if you want it to be smoother, add a little more water (1/2 tsp at a time) until you are satisfied with the consistency.

Tip:
Don’t make the dough too wet or else rolling it into little balls will become very difficult.

Roll out small balls of caramel.

Take a small portion of the cookie dough and roll it into a ball.
Then, flatten it in the center and place a small ball of caramel here.

Now, wrap the cookie dough around the ball of caramel until it’s hidden in the center.

Place a cookie dough ball into each cavity of the candy mold.
Push the dough ball gently with your fingers so that it fits into the mold properly.

Tip:
Make sure to leave some space on top of each cavity so as to cover it with melted chocolate.

Use a paintbrush to paint a layer of melted chocolate on top of the cookie dough.
Place the tray in the freezer for about 5 minutes and allow the chocolate to harden.

Remove the tray from the freezer and gently turn it over onto a sheet of wax paper.
Tap the top of the tray slightly and the truffles will just fall out.

Spray the top of the truffles with edible silver spray.

Store these truffles in a plastic container and keep them in the refrigerator.

You can eat them cold or let them come down to room temperature and then enjoy them.

I personally like them at room temperature coz they are so ooey gooey! Mmmm 🙂

      I used store-bought caramel… just rolled it into balls. I was trying to keep this recipe as easy as possible. So, I didn’t make my own caramel but if you have a great recipe, you can use that instead of store-bought caramel. I hope you like this truffles… they are truly addictive!lol

        Hi. What size should the cookie dough balls be before and after wrapping the caramel inside? Also if you used store bought caramels, did you use the the kind you unwrap (like Brach’s) how did you soften them just enough to reshape them and not make the caramel sticky? Thank you!!

          Each hole in my mold had a diameter of about 2 inches. So, I stuffed about 1/4 tsp of cookie dough at the bottom and a 1/4 tsp dough at the top.

          If you don’t have the mold, here’s what you do:
          1) Scoop out 1 tbsp of the cookie dough.
          2) Wrap a little ball of caramel inside it.
          3) Chill the balls in the freezer for 15 minutes.
          4) Dip the balls in melted chocolate and place them on a tray lined with wax paper to harden.

          The caramel needs to be the stuff you unwrap. It’s soft enough to mold.

          Hope this helps 🙂
