Double Chocolate Cookie Truffles
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and Easter not far behind I thought an Easy Chocolate Truffle would be perfect, especially a no bake double chocolate recipe.
AND YES IT IS TIME ONCE AGAIN FOR OUR MONTHLY TASTE CREATIONS BLOG HOP, AND FOR THIS SPECIAL MONTH OUR FOOD IDEA IS Chocolate as a Gift Idea.
How to make Chocolate Cookie Truffles.
- Ground 1 package of Vanilla Wafer Cookies.
- Melt the white chocolate either in the microwave or I find it easiest to break it up and place it in a dish over a small pot of boiling water (make sure the water doesn’t touch the plate).
- Make sure to freeze the mixture and the formed balls, so they are easier to handle.
- Use a toothpick to dip your truffles in the melted either dark chocolate or milk chocolate.
- Ground your choice of nuts, I used almonds, but hazelnuts, walnuts or even pecans would work or even coconut if you prefer.
- Refrigerate the Chocolate Cookie Truffles at least one hour before serving.
To tell the truth the Italian is not the most Valentine’s Day kind of guy. He does not believe that he should show he cares on a specific day nor should it involve necessarily chocolate. (unfortunately for me)
A head of broccoli or a bag of fresh picked chicory is just as romantic in his opinion!
So I guess if I want chocolate I better make it myself!

So whether you celebrate or not Valentine’s Day, either with Chocolate or Broccoli, I hope it’s yummy. Enjoy!
Double Chocolate Cookie Truffles
- 1 package vanilla wafer cookies (6 ounces)
- 3 1/2 ounces white chocolate (melted)
- 5 ounces chocolate (dark or milk / melted)
- 1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
- 1/2 cup coconut flakes
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- In a blender finely ground the wafer cookies.
- In a medium bowl add the crushed cookies, and the melted white chocolate, mix to combine well. Place in a glass bowl, cover with plastic wrap and freeze for approximately 10-15 minutes or until firm but not frozen.
- Remove from the freezer and using a teaspoon remove a heaping spoonful, and form into a ball. (Place balls and mixture in the fridge if they become too soft). Once all the balls are all formed then place the cookie sheet in the freezer for another 30 minutes.
- Then remove from the freezer and using a toothpick or fork dip the balls in the melted dark or milk chocolate and then roll in the ground nuts or coconut. Freeze the chocolates once again for 30 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
