chocolate truffle cookies

chocolate cookies

Last Sunday was dreary…or at least it was dreary by Miami standards. After a most unproductive day, I decided I wanted to give myself a little project. To sate my chocolately craving, I decided to make Chocolate Truffle cookies. Thank God I had just purchased some cocoa powder. And I had some truffles stashed away in the pantry from an over-sized basket a client gave my Dad for Christmas.

Also, ever since I tried salted caramels, I’ve been obsessed with salted sweets. The salt enhances the sweet, and make everything completely addicting. So, I added a mini-pinch of fleur de sel to the top of my truffle cookies…and they were oh-my-God-so-good!

  2. Hi Amy,

    You can see the recipe when you click “recipe”. I’ll also copy it here:

    Chocolate Truffle cookies
    1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/2 cup chocolate truffles – chopped
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    1 1/3 sticks of unsalted butter at room- temperature
    1 large egg
    3 tablespoons fleur de sel

    Preheat to 375 degrees.
    In an electric mixer (or using your hands to knead), thoroughly mix the flour, cocoa, baking soda and powder, salt, and sugar.
    While on low speed, add the butter, and then the egg. Continue processing or mixing until dough comes together in a mass.
    Mix the chopped truffles into the dough until they’re spread out evenly throughout.
    Form little balls with the dough (about 1 and 1/12 inches in diameter) and place them baking sheet approximately 2 inches apart.
    Wet your hands a bit and slightly flatten the dough.
    Bake for 10 minutes.
    Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with fleur de sel.
