Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 32 mini muffin cups with cooking spray.

Remove from heat; immediately pour over chocolate chips. Let stand 20 seconds. Stir until chocolate and cream are well blended and mixture is shiny.
  • 5 Fill each cookie cup with about 1 tablespoon chocolate-cream mixture. Gently cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until set.
  • 6 When cookie filling is set, sprinkle a few granules of coarse sea salt on top of each.

Expert Tips

Add a tablespoon of brandy, rum or even hazelnut liqueur to “spice” up the truffle filling.

Replace peanut butter dough with sugar cookie dough for a slightly different take.
