Alright folks - this one is gonna knock your socks off.

As you know, I am a cookie fanatic and have been making various versions of my favorite cookies just because I can. What’s better than a chewy cookie filled with the things you love most?

Nothing. The simple answer is nothing.

And, as you also may now know, my favorite chocolate brand to use in my cookie recipes is Alter Eco Chocolate. Not only do they have the best flavor combinations, but their chocolate is organic, fair trade certified, and filled with simple and wholesome ingredients.

Their chocolate also happens to be freaking delicious, if I do say so myself.

they recently launched a new line of products called the Superdark collection - and within that range of products is their first ever vegan truffle! I have been waiting for them to make a truffle flavor that is plant-based and the day has finally come.

And allow me to tell you that it. is. pure. bliss.

And so, naturally, I have stuffed this incredible truffle inside of every one of these cookies and the results are superb.

Let’s bake!

Jumbo Truffle Stuffed Cookies

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/4 cup all purpose or spelt flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/3 cup melted coconut oil

2/3 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup warm water

6-7 Alter Eco Superdark truffles

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat your oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. In another bowl, mix together the sugar, oil and water. Combine the wet mixture to the dry, mixing until dough has formed. Take about 2 Tbsp worth of batter into your hands and form a ball. Place one truffle in the center of each cookie, rolling the dough so that the cookie dough covers the truffle. These cookies will be rather large due to the truffle middle, so you’ll end up with 6-7 large cookie dough balls. Place them on your cookie sheet, and bake for about 18-20 minutes.

Super simple cookie dough! Should look like this once everything (besides the truffles) has been combined.

Here is the star of the show - the Alter Eco Superdark truffle! These things are seriously addicting and the perfect addition to a simple sugar cookie.

Roll out your cookie dough and place a truffle within each, making sure to roll again and cover the truffle with dough. They should simply look like this - large cookie dough balls, with no visible truffle.

Your cookies may have a bit of truffle leakage but that’s totally fine!

Allow them to fully cool before biting - that truffle center can get very hot!

But once you break this cookie in half, you won’t be able to resist.
