I am going to a cookie/ornament exchange tonight, and my hostess encouraged everyone to try a new cookie recipe this year. I found a recipe for Chocolate Truffle Cookies that caught my attention and taste buds at What Megan’s Making dot com via Pinterest.
I found a little extra time in my day yesterday to make them, and what can I say? They are heavenly! A melt-in-your-mouth delicacy! If you like chocolate, these will satisfy your craving!
Chocolate Truffle Cookies
1 1/4 cups butter
2 cups confectioner’s sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 cups chocolate chips
1/3 cup cocoa powder (for rolling)
2/3 cup confectioner’s sugar (for rolling)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Sift in cocoa powder and salt, and mix well. Beat in sour cream and vanilla extract. With the mixer on low, blend in flour. Stir in chocolate chips.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls and roll in the cocoa powder and place on baking sheet. If the dough is too hard to handle, refrigerate for 30-60 minutes before shaping into balls. Bake for 10 minutes or until cookies are just barely set. Let cool on baking sheet for 3-5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
When cookies have reached room temperature, after about 30-45 minutes, roll in confectioner’s sugar until completely coated. Store in an airtight container. Makes 4 ½ dozen.
