Bits of Sweetness: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Maybe I shouldn't write this post. Because I have about five of these left in my fridge and they sound so very good. These are amazing, let me tell you. I discovered the recipe on this enjoyable blog I follow. I love cookie dough just about as much as the finished cookies. So to have a dessert where I get to eat cookie dough completely covered in chocolate? That, my friends, is dessert heaven! They're very easy too. Here's how you make this delightful treat.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Ingredients: 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup chocolate chips 
(I used milk chocolate. Feel free to vary it)
2 cups of dipping chocolate, chocolate candy buttons
or chocolate chips
(I used dipping chocolate. One container=1 cup)

Instructions: Cream brown sugar, butter, and vanilla until light and fluffy.
Add 1/2 of the sweetened cond. milk. Mix well.
Add 1 cup of flour. Mix well.
Add remainder of sweetened cond. milk. Mix well.
Add remainder of flour. Mix well.
Add chocolate chips and beat until the chips are tiny pieces
(My mixer isn't very powerful so they never broke up much. That's ok though!)

Refrigerate dough 1 1/2-2 hours. Take dough out and roll into 1 inch size balls. 
Put back into the bowl and refrigerate again for about 45 minutes.

Melt chocolate dipping chips or candy buttons in the microwave. 
(Chocolate chips will need to be melted in a double boiler to maintain smooth consistency.)

Place wax paper on a baking sheet or container.
*This part will be messy! But what a *problem* having delectable chocolate on the hands ;-) *
Using two spoons (or whatever combination works best for you!)
 roll the balls in chocolate until covered and place on the waxed paper.
Place the balls about two inches apart. Refrigerate again for 45 minutes
(or, if you're impatient like me and just want to devour the amazing treat, place in the freezer for about 15 minutes. Move to the refrigerator after or they will be too hard to eat right away.)
Perfect with strawberries or a glass of milk.
(If you are short on time, just pick up a tub of cookie dough -Costco has Otis Spunkmeyer brand!-
and a container of dipping chocolate and go to town on it!)
