Sugar Cookie Truffles

425

If you want to make a sweet treat this holiday season but aren’t a big fan of baking this recipe is for you. These truffles are vegan and look pretty fancy for how easy they are to throw together. They make a perfect holiday gift or are a great addition to any holiday party.

The only baking involved in this recipe is the 5 minutes you will spend with your flour in the oven to kill the bacteria. Yes, you heard me right… apparently, you are not supposed to eat raw flour. I always thought eggs were the culprit when it comes to salmonella. I felt safe eating raw cooking dough because it was vegan. However, in a recent nutrition class, I learned that you can get sick from eating raw flour. If you bake it at 350°F for 5 minutes it will kill the bacteria and the cookie dough will be safe to eat.

I use two different types of chocolate in this recipe to add variety but feel free to stick to one if desired. All your friends and family will think you spent hours making this recipe but it is pretty quick and easy to prepare. Also, I highly recommend using store-bought vegan white chocolate. I tried to make my own and it was not coating the truffles well. I used King David Gourmet white coco chips but there are a ton of different options online.
