For a complete recipe list, check out my 12 Days of Gluten-Free Christmas Cookies announcement page.

I have to share my kid-friendly truffles with you. These are so easy to make, and your kiddos can help you out.

I found this recipe via a friend of mine. She sent it to me with a note asking me to please make them She Let Them Eat Cake-friendly.

Oh my goodness, they are good. And they would make the perfect hostess gift.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Gluten-Free and Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

¾ cup sorghum flour
¾ cup almond flour/coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp sea salt
½ cup melted coconut oil (softened)
½ cup warm maple syrup
½ tsp vanilla
2 tbsp warm almond milk
½ cup Enjoy Life Chocolate chips (or mini chocolate chips)
1 200 gram bar of dairy-free dark chocolate, chopped
1 tbsp coconut oil

In a small bowl, combine flours, soda, and salt.

In the bowl of your mixer, combine oil, syrup, and vanilla. Stir in warm milk. Add flour to wet ingredients and combine.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Dough should be the consistency of dough-meets-batter, so a little bit runny. You might have to use more almond flour if using it instead of coconut flour (up to 1/2 cup).

Refrigerate for 30 minutes, don’t let it get too hard (coconut oil chills fast). You just want it to be scoop-able so you can roll it into balls.

Using floured hands, roll into 1-inch balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Return to fridge for another 30 minutes (or longer if you want to do this over two days to make life easier). Remove from fridge and reroll balls so they’re in a perfect ball shape.

Melt chocolate bar and coconut oil in a double broiler, or a stainless steel bowl over a sauce pan. Dip pre-rolled balls into melted chocolate mixture using two forks. Return to parchment lined baking sheets and return to the fridge until set. Store in the fridge or the freezer until ready to devour serve to your guests.

Makes 18 truffles.
