Funfetti Cookie Dough Truffles

I guess it turned out to be funfetti week. 🙂

I have made Cookie Dough Truffles once before, here. Instead of chocolate chip cookie dough, this time I went with funfetti.

This idea is really not new. You might have seen this on Pinterest. Something similar was also done by Hayley. And a slightly different recipe can be found here by Shugary Sweets.

Since all the recipes are slightly different, and I just recently made funfetti cookies, I decided to adapt my own recipe to be “egg free” aka pregnant lady friendly.

Speaking of pregnant lady, have you seen my new sidebar pic?! I’m going to try to keep it updated as I go now so you can all see whyyyy I am not posting very often.

Anyway, back to these cookie dough truffles.

Funfetti Cookie Dough Truffles

Ingredients:

1 1/2 sticks salted butter (3/4 cup)

1 cup sugar

6 tbsp milk

2 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking powder

scant 1/2 tsp salt

2 cups flour

1 cup dry funfetti cake mix

4 tbsp any kind of sprinkles

Directions:

1. Beat together butter and sugar. Add milk and vanilla, scraping beater as needed.

2. Add baking powder and salt, then slowly add flour then funfetti mix.

3. Add more sprinkles. I used a few different random packets of Karen’s Cookies sprinkles. I had been saving them up and this was the perfect opportunity to utilize them!

4. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Roll dough into tablespoon sized balls and lay on cookie sheet. Freeze until firm.

5. Melt candy melts in microwave. Using a fork, dip the balls into the candy and tap off any excess.

Return to the cookie sheet and sprinkle the top with more sprinkles.

    I’m making these for a bridal shower this weekend. How many does your recipe yield? And should I freeze them the night before and dip them in the morning or do it all the day before?

    • Either way. After they’re dipped they need to be stored in the fridge, so the candy coating will set up right away. If it’s easier to do it all the day before that would work too! I don’t remember exactly off hand, but I think the recipe yields about 3 dozen.

    I made these and they didn’t turn out. Idk why. Kinda fustrated. I guess it was the flour and butter I used.
