Good Things Happen in Threes: 3-Layered Chocolate Brownie Cookie Dough Truffles

Summer of 2001 I was told good things happen in threes. Mind you, this was a truth told to me after I realized bad things ALSO happen in threes, but that’s another story. Since the summer of 2001, my superstitious self always searches for things in threes, for better or for worse! While walking home from work today, I figured out the big three line-up for February 1st:

One: We made it through the dog days of January (woohoo).

Two: It’s almost Valentine’s Day (my favourite holiday).

Three: It’s my older brother’s birthday (yes, you guessed right – there are three of us kids)

So going with my theme of threes, of course I have to share these truffles that are a combination of three unbelievable layers. Life is good with the big three.

3 Layered Chocolate Brownie Cookie Dough Truffles


Brownie Layer

  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder

Cookie Dough Layer

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Chocolate Layer

  • 3-4 Lindt chocolate bars, 60% cocoa
  • 1-2 tbsp butter

Assembling the Truffles

  1. First bake the brownies. Preheat the oven to 350* and grease a 9X9 pan with non-stick spray.
  2. Combine all ingredients for brownies and mix until smooth. Pour into pan and bake for 30 minutes. Let brownies cool.
  3. Once brownies have cooled crumble brownies to form a dough-like ball of brownie. Take a spoon full of the dough and form into small ball. Repeat until you’ve created about 20-30 mini brownie balls. Freeze on cookie sheet.
  4. While brownies are freezing, prepare the cookie dough. In a mixer, combine butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add vanilla. Slowly add flour and then chocolate chips.
  5. Once brownies have frozen, wrap a spoonful of cookie dough around the brownie. Freeze on cookie sheet.
  6. In a slow cooker, or over a double boiler if you’re good at melting chocolate, melt chocolate chips and butter. Once chocolate is melted dip frozen cookies dough brownie truffles. Let cool completely. Drizzle with left over chocolate.
