Do you love cookie dough but feel a little funny eating it because of the eggs in it? Yes, how long have we heard don’t eat raw eggs it will make you sick? For as long as I can remember it seems, I don’t worry about it personally at home when I’m the cook . But I really don’t like eating store bought cookie dough ice cream and such because of that little voice in my head reminding me I could get sick. Well, thanks to my blue eyed friends over at Blue Eyed Baker’s they posted a recipe for cookie dough truffles that doesn’t have eggs in it. Yay! We can all rest assured no bacteria and pop this cookie dough in without a second thought to feeling sick, unless you eat too many truffles that is. I thought I would honor St. Patricks Day by dipping my cookie dough truffles into some green melting candy, yum! Now I think I will have to make some more dough and try out cookie dough truffle ice-cream mmm…doesn’t that sound delish. Happy St. Patrick’s Day may you find your pot o’ gold! 🙂

I love it! When I make cookie dough truffles I just use my regular chocolate chip cookie dough recipe omitting the eggs and baking soda and adding water if necessary to make up for consistency difference. But, I’ve never tried using different colored chocolate melts though. : )

Oh, this could be dangerous! Cookie dough without eggs, which means I could eat an entire bowl if I wanted to and believe me I want to! Your truffles are so cute!

Your cookie dough truffles are so festive! And so stinkin' delicious looking! I could eat ALL of them – I'm certain they have addictive qualities!

Cookie dough without eggs? Hurray! I've always ignored the egg concern. I'll worry about it when I die. These are so cute and pretty. I bet they were huge hits.

they were so tasty and yes my kids thought they were great for St. Paddy's day. If you make them dip them in chocolate I thought the candy melts were great but a bit sweet.

Oh Yum! I make cake balls ALL the time….but the LONG way… cook a box cake mix, let it cool, crumble it, mix in frosting, refrigerate, form into balls, refrigerate again, dip in chocolate.

These sound soooo good and make me want to go eat some cookie dough!
