Cookie Butter Truffles
Like cookie butter? Then you have to try these cookie butter truffles, featuring a Speculoos-based center and a chocolate coating.
Cookie butter is an addictive thing. Kind of like Nutella, for me. They are both extremely decadent, rich spreads that are best enjoyed in moderation.
But that rarely happens.
If you like cookie butter, then you really should try these truffles.
They have a cookie butter-based center and are coated in chocolate.
And trust me: These are truly easy to make – especially when you use Candyquik or chocolate almond bark to coat them. I don’t typically like to fuss with desserts, which is why I trend toward easy-to-make creations like truffles.
Plus – they’re so pretty and so delicious that they would make a great DIY gift for the holidays.
How To Make Cookie Butter Truffles
Be sure to scroll down for the detailed recipe, but here’s the process of making cookie butter truffles, in a nutshell:
- Combine cookie butter (like Biscoff, Speculoos or Trader Joe’s), butter, and powdered sugar with a blender
- Shape dough into balls
- Place in the refrigerator to cool and harden for at least an hour
- Use a fork or spoon to roll cookie butter balls around in melted chocolate candy coating
- Place decorative sprinkles on top, if desired
- Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and cool to harden

Foolproof Chocolate Coating
While there are fancier and more labor-intensive options for coating things with chocolate, I prefer the foolproof method of using microwaveable candy coating.
My go-to brand is Candyquik. It couldn’t be easier to use. You simply use the tray that is included in the package to microwave the chocolate until soft. Then, coat your chilled truffle (or whatever else you are coating with chocolate) and set it aside to cool until hardened (which happens very quickly if the truffle has been chilled).
