Cookie Dough Truffles Recipe

Brandi Kirkpatrick


These have become a Christmas tradition at our home! We have finally perfected it to our taste! We usually add more then 1/2 cup of mini morsels, but the sprinkling of sea salt on top is what pushes these over the edge! Even my picky daughter (who I started this tradition with) LOVES the addition of the salt.
