Stuffed Chocolate Truffle Cookies

These rich stuffed chocolate truffle cookies with sprinkles are a fun spin on classic chocolate snowball cookies. Great homemade gift for Christmas too.

These stuffed chocolate truffle cookies were a result of a SUCCESSFUL experiment about a month ago.

I was making my Mom’s chocolate snowball cookies and suddenly, got this crazy idea to STUFF them with a chocolate truffle.

Why???

Coz cookies stuffed with anything taste soooo much better than just plain old cookies 😉

And since I love sprinkles, I SKIPPED the powdered sugar and rolled the cookie balls in some sprinkles.

My first batch didn’t work out that well and I was disappointed…The cookies were too FLAT for my liking.

So, I made another batch and FROZE this one for 45 minutes and then baked them.

MY OTHER RECIPES


These ones had the perfect ROUND ball shape that I wanted!

These cookies are really RICH and the sprinkles add a subtle crunch and that chocolate truffle in the center is a nice surprise when you bite into  each cookie 😉

My family and friends LOVED them!

So far, I have stuffed these cookies with regular Kisses and truffle Kisses. They both tasted great but my favorite was the truffle version.

These stuffed chocolate truffle cookies will work great as a homemade GIFT during Christmas time too.

They have already made my Christmas baking list for this year…lol.

    Hi, I have a question. Can I make these cookies up until the part where you put them in the freezer, then store them in the freezer? I’m looking for cookies I can make ahead then bake when I’m ready. 🙂

      I don’t think that should be a problem, as long as you store them in sealed freezer bags.
