It’s time for the 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats blog hop again.  It’s hosted by Brenda Thompson from MealPlanningMagic.com.  The blog hop goes live every Wednesday until Christmas.  If you’d like to join us, please fill out the form on Brenda’s blog.

This is the fifth week of Christmas Treats and I’m combining #ChocolateParty and #12WksXmasTreats.  Since the theme for Chocolate Party for October is candy bars, I decided to make these Butterfinger Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles.  This recipe is a variation of the dough I used for my Deep Fried Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.  I liked it best when it was frozen.  My hubby wanted baked cookies, so I did bake some at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.  They turned out sort of flat but he thought they were great.

Butterfinger Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Yield:  40 – 45 truffles


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pasteurized eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
  • 1 cup crushed Butterfingers (about 8 or 9 fun size candies)
  • 1 cup holiday sprinkles


Step 1:  For the dough:  Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.  With an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugars for about five minutes.  Add the eggs in two additions; mixing to combine after each addition.  Mix in vanilla and then flour in small batches.  Stir in chocolate chips and crushed Butterfingers.

Step 2:  Chill dough for 1 to several hours to make the dough easier to form.  Form cookie dough balls (about 2 teaspoons), roll in holiday sprinkles, pressing them into the dough so they adhere, and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.  When all dough balls are formed, chill in the freezer at least 1 hour.  Keep chilled until ready to serve.
