Valentines Cookie Dough Truffles, made in sweet heart shapes, dipped in chocolate and decorated with sprinkles. Everyone is going to LOVE them!

These are a no bake, egg free cookie dough base that is super easy to prepare in your stand mixer. Just mix, chill, shape and decorate. You can use any design of cookie cutter, so save this for later, and you can have some fun with making cookie dough truffles all year long.

A few simple steps

No one will guess how easy these Valentines Cookie Dough truffles are to make, and I won’t tell, promise.

Gather all your supplies far enough in advance to let the butter come to room temperature. Because there is no egg (since we eat the dough raw), you want to ensure that the butter is soft enough to cream well when beaten.

Also plan for some chilling time, between mixing the dough, cutting the shapes, chilling again and then one last time after they are dipped in chocolate and decorated.

If you are doing these with kids with short attention spans, I recommend doing all the prep work, and inviting them in when it’s time to dip and decorate. Oh and taste test of course!
