These may just be chocolate covered cookie dough balls, but it’s the execution that sets them apart. You see, not only are they decorated to look like the Cookie Monster, but he clearly has a mouth-full of cookies already! Oh I think I’m so cleaver sometimes. 

And yes I even purposely dipped these very messily to better resemble the Cookie Monster. 

And yes those are itty bitty homemade chocolate chip cookies strewn about as well. That or these truffles are massive!

I originally intended for those tiny cookie to be coming out of his mouth, but when I tested it out on one, it just didn’t look right (you can spy one at the bottom of the last photo in this post).

Turns out the visual of the cookie dough inside his mouth/the inside of the truffle exposed was plenty to seal the illusion of his chowing down on cookies. I know I wish I could have a mouthful of cookies/cookie dough.

Of course, I also used my eggless, heat treated cookie dough for maximum health safety. To learn all about why you need to also use heat treated flour if not baking it before consumption, check out my #ScienceSundays post!

Cookie Monster Cookie Dough Truffles #cookies #chocolate


Yield: 2 dozen Prep Time:
Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp heavy cream or milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cup all-purpose flour (heat treated*)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup mini or chopped semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp melted semisweet chocolate chips, for drizzling (optional)
  • 6 oz. blue candy melts
  • 4 dozen candy eyes


  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.
  2. Using a hand mixer, in a large bowl cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  3. Add milk and vanilla then mix in flour and salt on low speed until fully incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Roll dough into small balls (approx 2 cm – I used a small cookie scoop) and place on prepared baking sheet. Insert toothpicks into the top of each, then chill for at least 30 minutes. Can be made ahead.
  5. Melt chocolate in a metal bowl over a pan of lightly simmering water (double boiler). Stir occasionally until smooth; remove from heat.
  6. Dip cookie dough into melted chocolate leaving a circle uncovered at the base of the toothpick. Return to wax paper with the toothpick sideways, and immediately press two eyes on one side of the non-dipped spot. Repeat with remaining cake balls.
  7. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set. Remove toothpicks and serve immediately or store in fridge.


*Raw eggs are not the only possible source of bacterial contamination, raw flour is also a culprit. Heat treat by heating in microwave to 160 degrees F – about 1 minute stirring every 15 seconds.
