Stuffed Cookies. Stuffed Mint Crème Truffle Black Out Cookies. A mouth full, I know, but like a super delicious mouth full. Well, we made it. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. So I thought one last cookie recipe for the year will have to happen and I truly believed I saved the best for last. I mean who doesn't love A super chocolatey, STUFFED cookies?!
These are 100% the cookies you should be making for Santa and if you don't Santa will be sad. I just know it, ok? For black out cookies, the key is really dark cocoa powder. However, if you have regular cocoa powder, use it and it will taste just as good, promise!! My favorite part though? The Alter Eco Mint Crème Truffle that is stuffed right in the middle of the cookie.

I’ve partnered up with my friends at Alter Eco Foods to bring you the perfect Christmas Cookie! Chocolaty, minty and sup easy. Three of my favorite things! I know I totally told you to make these for Santa, but you might have a hard time not eating them up. The center of these cookies are truly out of this world because the Alter Eco Mint Crème Truffles are OUT OF THIS WORLD. There is no other chocolate and mint combination that can compete with these perfect truffles. I dare you not to just pop them in your mouth while baking these stuffed cookies.
HOW TO MAKE STUFFED COOKIES?
You will combine all of your dry ingredients into a small bowl. In a larger bowl, beat your butter, sugar, and vanilla until nice and creamy. Then beat in your egg until fluffy. Fold in your dry ingredients until there are no dry clumps left. Place in fridge for 10 minutes. Scoop a total of 14 cookie dough balls, using a small cookie scoop. Place an Alter Eco Mint Crème Truffle on 7 of the dough balls and cover with their better halves. Make sure your truffle is sealed up well and place on a a cookie sheet, 2 inches apart from each other, because they spread a bit! Bake for 10 minutes and let cool.
CAN THESE STUFFED COOKIES BE MADE IN ADVANCE?
Absolutely! Bake off your cookies up to 2 days in advance and store on counter in an air tight container. You can also make the dough 3 days in advance, cover and place in fridge, then bring to room temp and proceed to bake off!
