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.

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.
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.

Truffle Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 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.
