Every once in a while I crave cookie dough. Normally when I bake cookies, eating the cookie dough just isn’t my thing. My kids however can’t seem to keep their hands out of it.

Which is why an eggless cookie dough is a great option. And dunking that cookie dough in chocolate makes it a complete dessert.

Monster cookies have been around for many years. I tried to find the origin for you all, but it seems there are many varieties. Most often though monster cookies consist of a basic cookie dough with oats, chocolate chips and M&M candies. You may even see raisins thrown in too, but my kids would never go for that!

Today’s truffle is a perfect marriage of soft, sweet monster cookie dough with a delicious chocolate shell. And of course sprinkles. Because sprinkles make everything happy! I used Peanut Butter M&M’s (not peanut) to add a little extra flavor to these truffles. Feel free to use your favorite variety, or even Reese's Pieces.
