Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles @ Common Sense Homesteading

These chocolate chip cookie dough truffles are made with almonds, coconut oil, honey, chocolate chips, vanilla and a dash of salt, and can be coated with chocolate or served plain.  (The first batch disappeared before I got a chance to dip them.) Once you try these tasty little cookie bites, you’ll be hooked.  Even my somewhat finicky husband loves them.  They’re a great way to get more coconut oil into your diet.  (The Tropical Traditions website has a great recipe page with dozens of recipes using coconut products.)

For a simple, elegant treat that couldn’t get much easier, I make up a batch of these chocolate truffles.  I normally use milk chocolate, but good quality semi-sweet or dark chocolate should also work.
