To make these Daisy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles I used a laundry list of baking tools – Wilton Silicone Daisy Mold, Ghirardelli White Chocolate Melting Wafers, Wilton Garden Candy Color, Paramount Crystals, and Wilton Candy Melt Dipping Tools.
Yes, this is a lot of gadgets if you don’t have them or don’t want to purchase them, however, this recipe is just as fabulous rolled into ball shapes and dipped into candy melts or baking chocolate using a fork.
Resources + Recommendations
If I recommend only one thing it would be the paramount crystals. They do wonders when working with chocolate; they help the chocolate dry shiny and smooth. They are very helpful in preventing sugar or fat bloom too. Use paramount crystals – 1 tablespoon per 1 cup of unmelted chocolate wafers.

Now on to the recipe…
First you’ll need to put a little flour into the silicone daisy mold. I just tapped mine around and then dumped the excess. This will help ensure easy removal of your adorable daisy truffles. Once you’ve whipped up your eggless chocolate chip cookie dough scoop the dough into the daisy mold. You’ll want to push it around and down filling the cavity. Be sure to make the cookie dough flush with the top of the silicone mold. This will give you a nice flat bottom.
Once you’ve filled your mold, pop it into the freezer for about a half hour. While the Daisy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is firming up you can start melting your chocolate.
To melt chocolate wafers I use a double boiler system, but you can also melt your chocolate in the microwave if you prefer. If using a microwave, heat the chocolate for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat until the chocolate is melted. Be very watchful while heating chocolate – you don’t want to burn it.
Once your chocolate chip cookie dough is firmed up and your chocolate is melted it is time for your truffles to take a chocolate bath. Dip cookie dough truffles into chocolate, lightly tap dipping tool to remove excess chocolate, and place on parchment paper to set. You don’t want the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles to get soft while dipping, so be brisk when dipping into the warm melted chocolate.
Once your Daisy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles have set store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. I doubt they will last that long though – so delish!
