Truffle Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Signs that DH and I are eating too well:

Me: Taste this, it’s a truffle stuffed chocolate chip cookie.

DH: I don’t taste the truffle.

Me: What? How is that possible? You can even see it. There’s a melted truffle all throughout the middle section of the cookie.

DH: (Taking a bigger bite) Nope, nothing.

Me: You don’t taste the Lindor truffle? Do you taste the extra chocolate?

DH: Ohh, you meant a Lindor truffle. I thought you meant black or white mushroom truffles.

?!?!?! I really am baffled by how his mind works sometimes. Why would a savory truffle be in a chocolate chip cookie. And when did we have enough money to start stuffing cookies with expensive truffle?

Anyhow, back to these cookies, which are stuffed with chocolate truffles. Is it safe to post this yet? Is everyone still sticking to New Year’s resolutions to get healthy and avoid sweets?

I’ve been trying to be good. But after a few tries at lightening up recipes, this weekend I really just wanted something fattening and sugary. So I went all out with these chocolate chip cookies.

Not only are they your regular full-fat chocolate chip cookies, but they each have a Lindor truffle stuffed inside. The Lindor truffle completely melted of course, but it ends up being a rich chocolate layer inside the cookie.

It makes these cookies super sweet. I definitely needed a glass of milk. But they were delicious.

Truffle Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

3/4 cup unsalted butter
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
16 Lindor truffles

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Cream butter and sugars until fluffy with stand mixer. Add in egg and vanilla extract and mix. In a separate bowl, combine salt, flour and baking soda. Whisk flour mixture. Add into wet mixture and mix on low speed until dough is formed. Stir in the chocolate chips until combined.
2. Take about 3 tsbp of dough and wrap around truffle. You want to make sure the layer of dough around the truffle is thick enough so that when the truffle melts, it will still stay contained within the dough. If the dough layer is too thin, the chocolate will leak out. Your dough ball should be about 2 inches in diameter, or slightly bigger. Place on baking sheet lined with silpat mat. Repeat with remaining dough, spreading dough balls two inches apart. Bake for 11-12 minutes until edges turn golden brown and cookies are set. Let cookies cool on baking sheet before removing.

    Oh, I saw the headline and was hoping for the savory truffles.

    ; – ) A bit tough to imagine a savory truffle flavor cookie but….still, I first wondered if that is what you did – LOL.

    These do look heavenly.

      Haha, no these were definitely the chocolate kind and not the savory truffle. I’m not quite sure how well they would taste together.

    Ooohh! These look delicious! :) Oh yea this is little off topic but I’m visiting SD tomorrow, and the first thing that popped into my mind was…who else is there to ask but Kirbie for recommendations! Is there any place you would recommend that I should absolutely try? We’re thinking of going to Phil’s for dinner because we’ve never been there. But we were looking for a place with good dessert options (I wanted to stray away from Extraordinary because I’ve been there and even though the cakes are good I would like to try other places) haha and also would you recommend any good bars with a selection of local beer? Thank you in advance!

      Yay, visiting SD! For dessert I’d suggest Cremolose or D Bar. Cremolose has a huge selection of gelato (40 something flavors) and other Italian themed desserts on display. They also have a huge space and bar area where they make a lot of dessert cocktails. D Bar was opened by Keegan Gerhard (Food Network). It has a nice selection of desserts and an open bar area where you can watch the desserts being made.

      For bars, I recently visited Barleymash in Gaslamp and enjoyed it. it’s a sports-type bar and they have a ton of local brews on tap and it’s a big location. I also went to Eureka inside UTC, which is mainly a burger joint but also has a bar area and they also have a lot of local brews on tap, as well as a beer sampler where you can choose 4 diff local beers and they also have a huge whiskey selection and whiskey sampler you can do.

      Hope you have fun in SD!

    I love D Bar! I went to the Denver location this past summer and it was really good. Thank you so much for your recommendations! :D

    Hehe – I have to admit that when I first hear truffle, I associate it with the mushroom variety, as well! But chocolate truffles are definitely the perfect addition to a gorgeous chocolate chip cookie like this =)

    • Kirbie replied: — January 21st, 2013 @ 3:49 pm

      I think, if I just hear truffle by itself I think of the mushroom variety, but when paired with dessert, my mind goes immediately to the chocolate kind.

    These cookies sounded SO good I had to try them. I followed the directions but ended but with a chocolate mess. All of the cookies oozed the truffles out. Oh we’ll, something’s are too good to be true!

    • Kirbie replied: — February 8th, 2013 @ 1:47 pm

      It sounds like you needed more dough on each cookie. If the dough layer is too thin then the truffle will ooze out, but if you put enough padding, it should just melt into the cookie. The cookies end up being pretty big balls before baking. Also what kind of truffles did you use? I think the Lindt ones are a bit better because they have a hard outer shell so they don’t melt as fast.
