Prep: 40 minutesTotal: 40 minutes

Fudgy brownie truffles made using chocolate cookie dough.


  • 115 grams (1/2 cup or 1 stick) butter, room temperature
  • 90 grams (1/2 cup) brown sugar
  • 50 grams (1/4 cup) caster sugar or granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 105 grams (3/4 cup) plain flour or all purpose flour
  • 20 grams (1/4 cup) cocoa powder, sifted
  • 75 grams (1/2 cup) chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon full fat or whole milk
  • 300 grams (2 cups) dark or milk chocolate, broken into pieces
  • Extra chocolate, grated, for decorating


  1. Line two baking trays with baking or parchment paper and set aside. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and sugars until combined. Add vanilla and beat until smooth and creamy.
  2.  Add flour and cocoa powder and mix until a soft dough forms. If the mixture is a little dry, add milk. Stir through chocolate chips.
  3. Using your hands, roll the dough into small balls (approximately 1 tablespoon) and place onto prepared tray. Gently cover the balls with plastic wrap and then place in the fridge or freezer to chill for at least 20 minutes.
  4. Melt chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 20 seconds, until smooth. Dip each truffle in the melted chocolate, and then gently lift it out with a fork. Give it a little shake to remove excess chocolate and then pop it on prepared tray.
  5.  Repeat with remaining truffles. While they are still wet, sprinkle over extra grated chocolate. Place truffles in the fridge to set for 10 minutes.


Heat treated flour: If you prefer not to eat raw flour due to bacteria concerns, you can use heat treated flour. You can buy this as a product online. Or Sally’s Baking Addiction suggests the following method for heat treating flour at home.

  1. Spread your plain or all purpose flour onto a rimmed baking tray. Use a little more than the recipe calls for in case some clumps or discolours.
  2. Place in oven that’s preheated to 150 C (300 F). Stir flour occasionally and check every 2 minutes until the flour has reached 74 C (165 F). You can test this using an instant-read thermometer.
  3. Leave to cool completely. Then sift flour, discarding any lumps, and give it a quick whisk before using as per normal.
