Recipe Tips & Tricks

  • Ghirardelli dark chocolate melting chips are our favorite chocolate coating to use
  • Sprinkles should be applied immediately before chocolate dries
  • Dough can be rolled into balls and refrigerated a couple days before dipping
  • Pink sprinkles are fun at Valentine’s day, orange sprinkles are perfect for Halloween and red and green make Christmas even more fun
  • A shortcut is purchasing edible cookie dough, making balls and dipping in chocolate

Storage and Freezing

After chocolate dipped truffles have dried and are firm they can be frozen in an airtight bag or container.

Chocolate chip cookie dough truffles do not require refrigeration, but will last longer when kept chilled in an airtight bag or container.
