Well, it’s safe to say I’ve eaten ALL THE SUGAR this past weekend. I was making Valentine’s day treats for everyone in my life and these Truffled Chocolate Chip Cookies were easily the show stoppers!
You all know that cookies are a staple in my house. They are stocked in the freezer at all times, and I’m putting a particularly decadent spin on them this time by upping the ante on traditional chocolate chips and sandwiching a full truffle in the middle of the cookie that melts down and helps create the best cookie imaginable. Trust me, there’s nothing about these that you’ll ever regret!
It’s my best chocolate chip cookie recipe
Truffled Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 8 ½ ounces cake flour
- 8 ½ ounces bread flour
- 1 ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 ½ teaspoon coarse salt
- 10 ounces unsalted butter softened
- 12 ounces dark brown sugar
- 6 ounces white sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- 16 chocolate truffles
- Combine the cake flour, bread flour, baking soda, baking powder and coarse salt in a large bowl. Stir to combine and set aside.
- In a large mixer add the butter and sugars and mix for 5 minutes until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl in between. Add the vanilla and combine.
- Add the dry ingredients a little at a time and mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Cover the dough and refrigerate dough for up to 72 hours.
- When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Scoop 1/4 cup sized cookie dough balls onto a parchment lined baking sheet and tuck a truffle in each cookie, making sure to seal it up with cookie dough, 6 cookies per sheet.
- Bake the cookies for 16-20 minutes until golden brown.
- Remove from oven and set aside to cool. Repeat with remaining dough

truffles in cookies! Um, I’ll take a baker’s dozen! YUM!!!
So smart to use truffles in cookies! These look amazing.
What a fun, easy way to make cookies extra special.
Keeping this in mind for next time I get a box of chocolates. Because (call me crazy), I’m not a huge fan of chocolates and truffles. I like chocolate, I just don’t like chocolateS. Makes zero sense, right? Anyway, I’d wayyyy rather have them baked into some cookies like this 🙂
I mean…the words make sense but my brain cannot comprehend the assumed delciousness that is truffles + cookies. I feel a major cookie monster moment stirring up within just looking at ’em!!
Swoon! Really, you put truffles in cookies? I love you so much.
I’m all about adding sugar to more sugar. It’s the best way to use up candy! 🙂 Pinned!

This is a stunning recipe! love how you transformed the ordinary chocolate chip cookie into an extraordinary cookie!….love this
You’ve really done it this time! I’m very loyal to my chocolate chip cookie recipe, but a truffle in the middle??? I may need to stray!
Wouldn’t those two types of flour just equal all-purpose (the softness of the cake flour and the heart-ier-ness of the bread flour?
I’m soooo gonna make these….but with dark chocolate truffles!! Thanks for the recipe Gaby!
Do you have a conversion chart for the flour and sugars from ounces into cups? Thank you.
Oh my these are the best cookies I have ever made. I shared with many people and they loved them. No photos though but these will be my go to when I want to impress.
Made these as a Valentine’s Day treat for my SO and they certainly were delicious & very impressive! With just a little extra effort, the basic chocolate chip cookie is transformed 🙂 I love the fun & tasty twist!
LOVE hearing that! xoxo
I have made these cookies once and am in the middle of another batch. This recipe is fantastic with or without the truffles.
I thought I would attempt to answer the question about ounces to cups. Being that baking is a sort of science, I want to preface that I’m taking an educated guess while in the process of making this recipe for my second time. My results might be different than others so take with a grain of salt. 😉
Cake flour can be substituted with all purpose flour and corn starch. 1.75 cups AP flour plus .25 cup corn starch equals 2 cups of cake flour.
8.5oz cake flour= approx 2 cups
8.5 oz bread flour = approx 1.75 cups
12oz dark brown sugar = approx 1.5 cups
6oz white sugar = approx .75 cups
12oz butter = 2.5 sticks
I just tried one of the “unstuffed” cookies and it was really good!
I just wanted you to know that these cookies are delicious. My 9 yr old son baked them for his county 4H cookie contest and won 1st place! He was so excited. Thanks for putting out such good recipes.
AH-MAZING!! Big congrats to him for winning!
I made this today…pretty similar to the chocolate chip cookie I make….BUT OH MY GOODNESS…the Lindt milk chocolate truffle in the center brings it to a whole other level!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
