Growing up you could always find me sneaking a spoonful of cookie dough while baking chocolate chip cookies…. What could be better than eating cookie dough? Oh yeah, cookie dough en-robed in dark chocolate. It’s also nice that these are egg and of course gluten free. Super easy to make, you really can’t mess these up! Even your kids could make them!
Cookie Dough Truffles
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 + 2 tablespoons almond flour, packed
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour, packed
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 2 teaspoons coconut oil
- Stir together butter and honey.
- Stir in flours and salt.
- Fold in chocolate chips.
- Shape into balls, should make about 20.
- Place cookie dough balls in the freezer, for at least 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips with 2 teaspoons coconut oil.
- Here is my method for coating the truffles. Place about 1 tablespoon of the melted chocolate in the palm of your left hand. Then with your right hand, gently roll the cookie dough ball in the chocolate in your palm, just until lightly coated. Then place it on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Continue until all truffles are coated. Place cookie sheet in the fridge to set.
- Store cookie dough truffles in a sealed container in the fridge up to one week. Or keep in the freezer up to 1 month.

I’d also like to introduce you to the newest member of our family, Bobby the elf.
This is our first year doing Elf on the Shelf. My kids are super excited and are loving it. For those who are not familiar with what I am talking about, it is an elf that is sent by Santa. He watches over the kids during the day and then every night returns to the North Pole and gives a report to Santa on the children’s behavior. Then the fun part is, in the morning the kids are to go and find where the elf is hiding. But there is one rule they must follow. No one is allowed to touch the elf, or he may lose his magic. You also get to name and adopt your elf, and can receive a letter from Santa. My 1 year old is actually the one who named him. She kept pointing and saying “bobby, bobby”… she was actually trying to say “barbie”, but we all thought it was too cute, so the name Bobby stuck. I’ll be sure to attach any interesting places we find Bobby over the course of the next few weeks.
Do any of you have an Elf on the shelf?? I would love to hear some of your stories. Please share in a comment below. I hope you all are getting into the holiday spirit!
