  • 150g unsalted butter, melted
  • 60g cocoa powder (for a rich chocolate flavor)

1. Prepare the Cookie Mixture:

  • Crush the Cookies: Begin by finely crushing the cookies. You can use a food processor for a quick process or place the cookies in a zip-lock bag and crush them with a rolling pin for a more hands-on approach.
  • Mix Wet Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, milk, granulated sugar, and vanilla sugar. Stir until the sugar is mostly dissolved.
  • Combine with Dry Ingredients: Add the crushed cookies and cocoa powder to the wet mixture. Mix well until you achieve a uniform, moist mixture that can be shaped into balls. If the mixture feels too dry, add a little more milk; if too wet, add more crushed cookies or cocoa powder.

2. Shape the Truffles:

  • Form Balls: Take small portions of the mixture and roll them into balls about the size of a walnut. Place them on a parchment paper-lined tray. If the mixture sticks to your hands, lightly oiling your palms can help.

3. Prepare the Chocolate Coating:

  • Make Ganache: Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan over medium heat until it begins to simmer. Do not boil. Pour the hot cream over the chopped chocolate in a bowl. Let it sit for a minute, then stir until smooth and glossy. This creates a rich ganache.
  • Dip Truffles: Once the ganache is slightly cooled but still liquid, dip each cookie truffle into the chocolate, ensuring it’s completely coated. Use a fork to lift the truffles out, letting excess chocolate drip off before placing them back on the parchment paper.

4. Chill and Serve:

  • Refrigerate: Allow the chocolate-coated truffles to chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or until the chocolate coating is set.
  • Serving Suggestion: For an elegant touch, you can drizzle some melted chocolate of a different color (white over dark, for example) or sprinkle them with cocoa powder, crushed nuts, or cookie crumbs before the coating sets.
  • Enjoy: Once set, your Chocolate Cookie Truffles are ready to be enjoyed. They can be served at room temperature or slightly chilled.

These Chocolate Cookie Truffles are not just a treat for the taste buds but also a delight to the eyes, making them perfect for gifting or adding a touch of luxury to your dessert table. Enjoy the process and the delicious outcome!
