Truffle Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

These chocolate truffle cookies are a fun way to dress up a regular chocolate chip cookie. Each cookie is stuffed with a rich chocolate truffle that melts while the cookies bake. When you take a bite, you get a decadent surprise inside.

Now that it’s the new year, 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 truffle stuffed 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.

The truffle makes the cookies extra sweet and decadent so they’re perfect with a glass of milk.

Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love making stuffed cookies and have made ones with brownies, Nutella, and even Peeps and Cadbury eggs. So, I knew using a Lindor truffle for this recipe would work really well.

Lindor truffle candies


  • Unsalted butter
  • Light brown sugar
  • Granulated sugar
  • Egg
  • Vanilla extract
  • Salt
  • Baking soda
  • All-purpose flour
  • Semisweet chocolate chips
  • Lindor truffles

How to Stuff Cookies

The cookie dough is easy to make. Just cream the butter and sugar, add the other wet ingredients, and then add the dry ingredients and chocolate chips.

Once you have your dough, scoop about three tablespoons and wrap it around the truffle. It needs to be thick enough so when the cookies bake, the truffle doesn’t leak out onto the baking sheet. My stuffed dough balls are usually at least two inches in diameter.

Space the dough balls two inches apart on a prepared baking sheet. Bake them for 11 to 12 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are light golden brown. Cool the cookies on the baking sheet.

Storage Tips

Once the cookies are fully cooled, place them in an airtight container. They will keep well for a few days at room temperature.

As a side note, when I made these cookies, I realized that DH might be getting a little spoiled. Here was the conversation about these chocolate truffle cookies:

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?

Anyway, these chocolate truffle stuffed cookies are pretty amazing. I love that you get the rich chocolate in every bite. It’s a fun way to dress up a regular chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Chocolate chip cookies with a chocolate truffle upgrade! These chocolate chip cookies are baked with a Lindor chocolate truffle inside which creates a rich and chocolaty surprise layer inside each cookie.


  • 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


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream butter and sugars until fluffy with a 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.
  • Take about 3 tbsp 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 the dough balls 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.

  1. When I saw your cookie recipe I thought I would try it. I made the recipe, wrapped the cookie around the Lindt candy. Unfortunately, the cookies went very flat and had the Lindt bump in the middle, and the butter dripped off the pan onto the bottom of the oven. The smoke was so bad the alarm went off. I then had to clean the bottom of the oven. My point is, I think the cookie batter was a little soft. Not enough flour to bind it together. I wanted to so much try these because they looked delicious. I just thought I would let you know.

    • I haven’t had any of those issues with this cookie dough. It does sound like your cookie dough needed more flour or a little less butter because it really shouldn’t spread that much or have butter dripping.

  2. 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!

    • 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.

  3. 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 =)

    • 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.

  4. 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! 😀

  5. 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!

  6. I am in love with you and your blog and your goodies. <3

  7. 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.

  8. These look awesome! I def have not been sticking to my resolution to cut back on sugar…I’ve been snitching chocolates off my secretary’s desk all week!
