Take A Bite Of: Cookie Dough Truffles



I know you like your chocolate. So I've got a little something for you: Cookie Dough Truffles. Here is an easy fix for your chocolate-based addiction, and a fun twist on class truffles (which I have made many times and will confirm truffles are one thing I would rather just purchase.)

This makes five dozen but you can go ahead and tell everyone it only makes 1 dozen and hoard the rest to yourself.  Buon Appetito!

Cookie Dough Truffles

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup semisweet mini chocolate morsels
  • 1 1/2 pounds chocolate bark candy coating, melted
Directions
In a large bowl cream butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Add vanilla. Gradually beat in flour and add milk. Add chocolate morsels mixing well. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place on waxed paper; chill 2 hours. *Cook's Note: Since the dough is sticky, roll your fingers into flour. This will make it easier to roll.


Melt chocolate bark candy coating in a double boiler. Using 2 forks, dip cookie balls into candy coating to cover. Place on waxed paper and chill to set. Store in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.




And Happy Birthday this weekend to our friend Tracie at Stir-Fry Awesomeness. Celebrate, good times, come on....

Holy Mama. I should make these as gifts for my co workers.

Corrie Howe said...

Yum! They look like the Buckeyes my MIL makes. My FIL and I fight over them every Christmas. She finally started making us our own batches and separating them. My problem is I have four people in my house to hide them from. He only has one.

Miss E said...

Well, you don't have to tell me twice! I'll be taking a bite for sure. You should try oreo truffles too, yum!
