No Bake Recipe

  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 4 Tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/4 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener Granulated (or 1/4 cup agave or honey, which makes a smoother bar)


  1. Mix together melted coconut oil with splenda (or agave/honey). Add cocoa powder and stir well for at least 3-4 minutes. You want the mixture to be extra thick.
  2. Pour into a parchment paper-lined flat container (I used a 5 inch square ramekin).
  3. Stick in the freezer until solid (about 30 minutes) and chop into pieces or bars.
  4. Store in the fridge, since coconut oil is almost liquid at room temperature.

Sally’s Tip: If you do not wish to use artificial sweeteners in your recipes, you can use agave or honey (although the bar will no longer be vegan if you choose honey) a instead of the Splenda. Using agave/honey will produce a smoother chocolate bar.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Big-flavored truffles in a small package, this recipe by Christy Denney in The Girl Who Ate Everything for bite sized truffles with cookie dough is a must try!

No Bake Recipe

Image courtesy of: The Girl Who Ate Everything


  • 8 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1½ lb. semisweet or milk chocolate, coarsely chopped (Baker’s chocolate)
  • Mini chocolate chips (for garnish)


  1. Combine the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the flour, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until incorporated and smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the mixture has firmed up enough to form balls.
  2. Shape the chilled cookie dough mixture into 1-1½ inch balls. Place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Cover loosely, transfer the pan to the freezer and chill for 1-2 hours.
  3. When ready to dip the truffles, melt the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Dip each chilled truffle, one at a time using a fork, coating in chocolate and shaking gently or tapping against the bowl to remove the excess. (If at any point during dipping, the cookie dough balls become too soft, return to the freezer to chill for 30 minutes.) Transfer to a wax-paper lined surface. If using mini chocolate chips for garnish, sprinkle on top quickly after dipping each truffle before the chocolate sets.
  4. Once all the truffles have been dipped, store them in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
