Easter Egg Cookie Dough Truffles - CUTE! Delicious egg-less cookie dough dipped in melted candy coating!! So cute!

Hi Lil’ Luna readers!! I could not be more excited to be here! My name is Lisa and I blog over at Wine & Glue all about the life of a wannabe baker, chef, seamstress, and crafter. I’m also a very real mom kept busy by my six and two year old and excitedly expecting another kiddo in May.

Raise your hand if you are as obsessed with cookie dough as I am! When I was pregnant with my first, I made cookies all the time (like at least a batch a week) just for the excuse to sneak a nibble or two of cookie dough!


So you can imagine how nuts I am about these Easter Egg Cookie Dough Truffles!

One of things I feel really strongly about on my blog is the fact that I’m not an expert. (I wear my wannabe badge proudly!) So if you see something on my blog, you can feel confident that if I can do it, so can you!

Same thing goes for these truffles! I know that dipping truffles can seem really tricky and intimidating, but these are so easy. They stay together perfectly, and they dip beautifully. And the lines on top are just created by thinning the chocolate with a little bit of vegetable shortening, and then drizzling with a fork.

The ones you see are the best ones, lol. You might want to practice your drizzling skills on some wax paper before you go for it on the eggs. That way you will also know if your chocolate is thin enough.

Annnnnnnd, I have a fun little extra treat to go along with these delicious little nuggets of amazingness. A cute little printable that you can use to bag them up! People will think that you bought these fancy treats at a bakery 🙂 You can head over to Wine & Glue to get the printable.

Easter Egg Cookie Dough Truffles
  • ½ cup of butter, softened
  • ¾ packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • pink, blue, purple, and white candy melts
  1. In the bowl of a large stand mixer, cream the butter and the brown sugar until light and fluffy, about two minutes. Beat in the vanilla.
  2. Slowly add the flour, scraping down the sides as necessary.
  3. With the mixer still running, slowly add in the sweetened condensed milk. You may need to stop the mixer periodically to scrape down the sides.
  4. Once it is fully combined, stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Form the dough into one inch balls, and then shape into eggs. Place on a wax paper lined pan and cover loosely with plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight.
  6. Melt the candy melts according to the directions on the bag. Keeping the truffles in the refrigerator, and removing only three or four at a time, dip them in the candy melts one at a time with a fork. Gently tap off any excess chocolate and let dry on wax paper.

These look so good!! I love anything with cookie dough -YUM!


These look adorable and so yummy! I have a question though, do these need to be kept refrigerated once they are completed?

Desiree @ The36thAvenue

Yummy! I love this 🙂


How many does this recipe make?


This may be a dumb question, buy what are candy melts? Same thing as almond bark?


How many does this make?

How do you store these?


Can this be made with regular milk instead of sweetened condensed milk? When I’m making eggless cookie dough, that’s how I usually do it. I just feel like the sweetened condensed milk might make it too sweet.



I made these truffles for Easter & featured them on my blog. I had some cosmetic issues but they taste sooo good! Thank you for the inspiration! http://frugal0.onjumpstarter.io/?p=1046


Is the dough supposed to be so sticky


These look awesome, thanks for sharing! How many do these usually make? I would like to make these for Sunday, a couple days ahead of time. Once decorated, do you recommend refrigerating until ready to serve? Thanks!


How far in advance can you make your truffles and after dipping them and decorating, do you need to put them back in the refrigerator? Please let me know as soon as possible. I need to begin ASAP. Your quick response will be greatly appreciated.

    So, sorry to not have gotten back to you sooner. I was out of town. But, you could make them the night before or the morning of and I would put them in the fridge. Hope that helps. Thank you!
