I used Jim Beam bourbon for these truffles, but feel free to use your favorite bourbon. The meringue powder is the egg replacement for the no bake cookie dough. You can find it where they sell Wilton products like Walmart or Michaels.
I chose dark chocolate for the coating, but you can do semi-sweet chocolate if you prefer. Either one will go well with the sea salt. I had some extra coarse sea salt that I crushed with a rolling pin to make the pieces a bit smaller. It worked out good.

Keywords: freeze refrigerate no bake dessert snack bourbon whiskey chocolate chips dark chocolate Father's Day truffles American
Ingredients (28 truffles)
- 1/3 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/8 cup granulated sugar
- 1/8 cup Biscoff cookie spread
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon meringue powder
- 2 tablespoons bourbon whiskey
- 3/4 cups + 2 tablespoon all purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1 cup Ghirardelli 60% Cocoa baking chips
- coarse sea salt
InstructionsFor the cookie dough
In a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars. Then add the cookie spread and vanilla, mix on low until well blended.
Add the merinque powder and bourbon to the mixer bowl and mix well.
Next, add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix on low until dough starts to form.
Last, add the chocolate chips and mix until all incorporated.
With a mini scoop, measure out 28 mounds and place them on a wax paper lined air-tight container.
Place the container in the freezer for at least 1 hour to set. (I left mine overnight.)For the coating
Place chocolate chips in a microwave safe container and melt for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until all chocolate is melted and smooth.
Remove chilled dough from freezer and dip the mounds, one at a time, into the melted chocolate until all covered. (I use a fork.)
Once covered, remove and softly tap until excess chocolate falls off. Then place the truffles on wax paper until the coating hardens. (If you are in a hurry, just pop them in the fridge for a few minutes.)Optional topping
If you are adding some sea salt, add it before the chocolate sets.Notes
These truffles don't require refrigeration, but I kept mine in the fridge anyway. Do keep them in an airtight container.
