Malted Milk Ball Cookie Dough Truffles

Cookie-dough-truffles

Cookie dough truffles made with crushed malted milk balls and smothered in dark chocolate are a super simple no-bake treat.

This quick and easy cookie dough recipe doesn’t include eggs so that it can be eaten as is. How great is that.

And as an extra bonus, these gems are packed with small morsels of malted milk balls.

To top it off, they’re completely covered in smooth and creamy dark chocolate.

These decadent truffles are so easy to make that you won’t believe it.

And the good news is that no baking is required which is a real treat considering the heat we’ve been having this summer.

No-bake desserts are the best especially when it’s hot outside.

These truffles can be done up in holiday form too. Just add holiday colored candy sprinkles and you have a quick and easy dessert that can be made ahead of time.

To really turn these into a fancy schmancy treat, after the chocolate sets, put the truffles in mini muffin papers and set them in a pretty candy-type gift box.

I’m sure the person on the receiving end of these yummies will be more than happy to gobble them up.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
