Hello everyone!

In the weekends I often make cookies for the kids and today I made these delicious Chocolate Truffle Cookies which melt in your mouth… the perfect weekend treat.




Chocolate Truffle Cookies (yield: 30)

  • 20 oz. (575 g) dark chocolate, 70 % cocoa solids (I use Callebaut)
  • 1 2/3 cups (200 g) all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons pure unsweetened cocoa powder (I use Valrhona)
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 16  1/4 oz. (460 g) regular sugar
  • 2/3 cup (140 g) unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  • 6 large eggs (at room temperature)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 8  1/2 oz. (340 g) dark chocolate chips, or roughly chopped chocolate (70 % cocoa solids)

Preheat the oven to 350 ºF (180 ºC). I use the fan setting for this recipe.

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water or in the microwave, set aside.


Put the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Stir to mix and set aside.


Put the sugar and butter into a mixing bowl and beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes.


Add the eggs and beat for another minute, then add the cooled chocolate and vanilla extract.

Beat for 3 minutes until everything is well blended.

Tip in the flour/cocoa mixture and the chocolate chips (or chopped chocolate) and stir until well blended.






Line two baking trays with baking parchment. Use an ice cream scoop to make mounds of the cookie dough, about 9 for each tray.


Dip a spoon into warm water and flatten the cookies slightly before baking.


Bake in the preheated oven for about 12–15 minutes.


Leave to cool completely.


Baked With Love..


These are a big hit in my house.


They also make a very nice gift for anyone with a sweet tooth…


Hugs from me to you.

  2. Hi Manuela,

    I have a question, i tried making this but i got a very watery batter that i had to add dry ingredients.. i baked it though and got a soft cookie, but i guess not like the one in the pic.. I measured and followed each and every instruction though but i feel i wasn’t able to achieve the perfect cookie… 🙂 Help 🙂 thank you and God Bless! Love you Blog!!!! please post more recipes! Thank you.

      Hi Anjela, these cookies are not crispy, so the result should be soft here.
      It’s hard to say why your batter was too runny, but it could have to do with the type of chocolate used. If the consistency seems more runny than shown on the instruction photos, try to add a little bit more flour.
      Good luck!

  3. Hello, Manuela! thanks a lot for your wonderful site with really great recipes!!! Wanna ask you if it is  possible to half these ingredients? cause I think it’s too much cookies for me 🙂

    • Team Passion4Baking Reply

      Hi Nika, this recipe can easily be halved to make a smaller portion.
      Good luck and happy baking!

  4. Hello, 
    Thanks for the great recipe! But I have some questions, I followed every steps but however my cookie didn’t have beautiful cracks as yours…. And mine didn’t look as moist as yours, they were tasted soft inside but not fudgy. Is it the right texture? Or I over baked? Hope you can help me to figure out these questions. Thanks a million!!!!

    • Team Passion4Baking Reply

      Hi Nienie, to get the cracked look it’s important to use chocolate with 70% cocoa solids, and to use the fan setting when baking in the oven.
      Good luck!

  5. Hi Manuela! First off, I love your blog and have been following it for quite some time now. I baked these cookies yesterday, the result was flat and fudgy cookies. What could I have done wrong? My cookie wasn’t as puffed up yours as shown in the picture. Hope you can give some tips regarding this ASAP. Thanks!

    • Team Passion4Baking Reply

      Hi inuglaf, do you have a fan setting on your oven? If using the fan setting the cookies will be more puffed up. 🙂

      Hi Niloooo, it’s hard to tell what went wrong, but you may try to increase the amount of flour, just a little.

    I made these cookies and share with my friends at school. All of them love it. All the shool wants me to cook again:) 

  8. Hi Manuela, I made the cookies again & they turned out great!
    They were chewy & a little cracked on the outside like yours. But they still didn’t have the truffle in the center, how do I make sure that I get the truffle in the center?

    • Hi dear, you have been overbaking the cookies, each oven is so different! next time bake them less, it will firm up after they cool down, happy you liked it
