It’s been barely a few days since I shared with you my Red Velvet Truffles . If you read my post then you know that I was determined, this year I want to make changes and I won’t make heart shaped Valentine’s treats like I did a last few years. But, never say never…

Cookie Dough Valentines Hearts with cutter

You may have read it, but obviously my dear hubby didn’t. He arrived from work yesterday and so proudly handed me a small package . It was a set of heart shape cookie cutters in different sizes. He said that was a little early Valentine’s gift. He had already learned that food bloggers make Christmas recipes for Halloween, and after Christmas and New Year we start baking Valentine’s desserts. So he assumed that I’ll need these cookie cutters . I did not want to disappoint him so I had to try them immediately. Finally, I really have to appreciate his good intentions, you must admit that rarely any husband would bought kitchen supplies.

And here I am again, going back to the good old hearts…but I have a good excuse. I wanted to return the love to my husband and decided to make him one of his favorite treats.
If you are wondering what does this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles have to do with heart shaped cookie cutter here’s the answers. I used recipe for popular cookie dough bars that you’ve already seen on many blogs, but I made a little twist. I didn’t make the classic bars. I used my new cookie cutters to cut off the hearts and than dipped them into the melted chocolate. I haven’t use my gift to bake good old cookies, because my husband is one of many who rather steal raw cookie dough than eat baked cookies. Whenever I bake cookies, especially those with chocolate chips he always seems to find something to do in the kitchen and while I turn around he managed to steal some cookie dough .Well, now he will get the whole portion for itself.

My husband didn’t even imagine what yummy surprised was waiting for him inside these irresistible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles. He probably thought that’s Oreo truffles or something like that. You can’t imagine how happy he was when take a first bite and find out that peanut butter cookie dough overloaded with chocolate chips was hidden inside crispy chocolate shell.

  1. I would love to make these for my grandchildren but can't use peanut butter because of a peanut allergy. Substitution for peanut butter ideas?
    1. Why not use "Wowbutter" or another equivalent? It's a peanut butter substitute, they're often made with sunflower seeds or soybeans. It's a very similar taste and can be substituted for peanut butter in basically any recipe.Also, the fields for entering in information have a spelling error (in the name and email fields). They currently read "Name (requiered)*" and "Mail (requiered - will not be published)*", but they ought to read "Name (required)*" and "Mail (required - will not be published)*", with required being corrected. Cheers!
    2. sunbutter can be used as a substitute for peanut butter. It is made from sunflower seeds and is completely nut free and tastes great. Soy butter could also be used, though I do not like the taste or texture of soy butter.
    3. Our son has a peanut allergy and we substitute all peanut butter with sunflower butter. It's the same as peanut butter, just made with sunflower seeds instead of peanuts. Sun Butter is a good brand.
    1. You can use sun butter for an alternative ! A lot of child care centers have that for children with peanut allergies. It's as thick as peanut butter so it should work well!
    1. To vanessa asking if you can use regular cookie dough.. If you can find a cookie dough that's egg free you could use that. These are no bake so I wouldn't recommend using regular cookie dough. It would make it a lot easier that way!
    2. Store bought usually has egg, which is why they do not suggest eating it raw. So I would say no. However, this recipe has no egg which makes it safe to eat without cooking.
    3. Re regular cookie dough. Because of the possibility of salmonella poisoning from raw eggs, it would not be advisable to use regular cookie dough since these are not baked.
    4. Raw cookie dough would have the same results though since raw cookie dough has eggs in it it should not be consumed before cooking. Raw eggs can contain some serious bacteria. Especially if they are a gift for a special little someone
  2. I have a son in college. Do you think these would do ok if I mailed them? He was my cookie dough snatcher and would love this let alone a package of love ❤ from mom.
  3. Wowbutter is a fantastic substitute for peanut butter...this is always what I use instead...even tastes better...available at walmart and other grocery stores....there are also other soy butter options as well as sunbutter....yummy stuff....
  4. For those requesting what to use instead of peanut butter; instead of omitting it altogether, would almond butter be an acceptable substitute? Assuming the allergy is to peanuts and not just a general nut allergy. Looks great!
  5. They say now days not to eat raw cookie dough because of salmonella and such, are these safe because of no eggs??
    1. Paula Trice-Did you not even read the recipe?? It doesn't mention store bought cookie dough which is unsafe raw, this recipe doesn't have that. Maybe if you read you would be able to find out..
  6. Looks AMAZING, great idea and I can't wait to try these!! What about storage and refrigeration after they've been chocolate coated? Can they be frozen?
  7. Could the flour be substituted with oat or something else? I just can't with the idea of eating uncooked flour, I believe you when you say is not harmful but it's still kind of hard to change a lifetime thought
  8. Found this and saved it because I thought it looked like something that would be fun to try sometime, never knowing how soon. I am helping with a baby shower this weekend and I am going to try these but using white chocolate chips, no peanut butter, cutting out rubber duck shapes, and dipping in yellow candy melts. Also will be coloring the dough pink. Hope they turn out like I hope. Thanks for the recipe.
    1. SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK SUBSTITUTE 2 eggs 1 c. brown sugar 1 tsp. vanilla 2 tbsp. flour 1/2 tsp. baking powder 1/4 tsp. saltMix all ingredients and use as a substitute for sweetened condensed milk in recipes for pies, bars and desserts.
    2. http://glutenfreeonashoestring.com/homemade-sweetened-condensed-milk/Xiu's suggestion would probably be okay in baked goods, but these are raw, so I wouldn't recommend it.
  9. How can you eat flour that hasn't been baked? What can u substitute for the condensed milk? Soy or Almond milk unflavored? Thanks
    1. To make your own sweetened condensed milk: http://glutenfreeonashoestring.com/homemade-sweetened-condensed-milk/3 optionsWhole milk, evaporated milk, or coconut milk (non-dairy option)
  10. My kids, husband loved these. I was a bit frustrated with cutting the shapes but I didn't let the dough set long enough in the fridge. It needs to set for quite a while to make cutting the shapes easy. My kids also thought it had too many chocolate chips so next batch I will use less. Overall these were tasty,,,,and addivtive :)
  11. When you dip these in the chocolate and transfer to the parchment paper, do you place them chocolate side down, or do you flip them to harden? Also, will the chocolate be smooth as shown in the photos, or will there be marks from the prongs of the fork? Would it be better for a mediocre baker to just dip the entire truffle to avoid messing these little beauties up?
  12. What is the yield on this recipe? Assume my hearts are no more than 2 inches in diameter. A ballpark number would be fine. I am making these this weekend. Thanks.
  13. The 7oz. Sweetened condensed milk is a weight not a volume. The amount needed is 1/2 of a 14 oz can. The can is 14 oz net wt. All other ingredients are volumes. This is why some people are getting sticky dough. Using 7 oz by volume (measuring it out) is way too much!!
  14. The latest New York Times article about the danger of eating raw cookie dough: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2016/06/29/dont-eat-raw-dough-f-d-a-cautions/The FDA statement: http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm508450.htmAccording to the New York Times: One study that looked at commercial wheat flour samples found almost 13 percent contaminated with E. coli. The investigators also pointed out that wheat flour can also be contaminated with Salmonella, and that flour-based mixes have previously been implicated in outbreaks of food-borne illness. Nestlé has also started sterilizing the flour it was in its raw chocolate chip cookie dough that it was selling because people were eating it raw and a very few were getting sick.In 2016 CNBC recommended that we should stop eating raw cookie dough because of E-coli in flour. They also suggested that your children should not do raw flour crafts.... http://www.cnbc.com/2016/06/30/no-really-stop-eating-raw-cookie-dough.htmlThis article is very interesting. Read this: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/12/12/beware-of-raw-cookie-dough/Here is an article from NPR: http://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2011/12/09/143450624/the-surprising-ingredient-in-raw-cookie-dough-that-could-make-you-sickhttp://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/12/12/beware-of-raw-cookie-dough/
  15. Tried out the recipe and the cookie dough was too sticky, so I added more flour, but it still wouldn't hold its form. Even leaving it in the freezer didn't help. I did continue on, and the truffles taste good! They're just super messy and sticky
