These cookies are a chocolate lovers dream. They are soft, chewy and intensely chocolatey!
They are so easy to make and will definitely satisfy any chocolate craving. I love dunking them in a hot cup of cappuccino and biting into all that chocolate goodness. They really do taste just like chocolate truffles! Very easy to make, but they will get your hands a bit messy (you’ll end up with sticky palms and fingers, but it’s so worth it!).
Sifted flour, cocoa, baking powder, caster sugar and bits of salted butter, ready to be mixed together.
Once you’ve mixed it all together with your fingertips, it should look a bit like sand.
When you mix in the egg and hazelnut liqueur, it will turn into a very sticky dough (that’s why I said your hands will get really messy!). Pop it in the fridge to chill and it will be ready to roll (literally).
Once you’ve rolled the dough into 3cm diameter balls, coat them in icing sugar and place them on a lined baking tray.
After baking in a 180°C oven for 10 min, you’ll end up with these little beauties!
Little bites of happiness just waiting to be wolfed down!
I really hope you enjoy these yummy chocolate truffle cookies. They are absolute bliss!
