Cookie Dough Truffles

OMG...if you have never tried these, you should. First of all...EASY! I made a bunch of these last night as I needed a little treat to bag up for some friends. They are going to love these.

And if you couldn't resist licking the spoon from the chocolate chip cookie dough, this is for you...without the guilt of raw eggs hanging there.

I made the dough and let it sit several hours before handling it and that made it easier. Then back in the fridge for another hour or so. I used the rest of the bag of chips for dipping and left out the nuts. Wonderful and worth the wait of the refrigeration time.

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (OPTIONAL)
1-1/2 pounds semisweet candy coating, chopped

Directions: In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Gradually add flour, alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Shape into 1-in. balls; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Loosely cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until firm. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt candy coating; stir until smooth. Dip balls in coating, allowing excess to drip off; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes. If desired, remelt remaining candy coating and drizzle over candies. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 5-1/2 dozen.

  9. I've heard of a similar idea with cake, but I never would've thought using cookie dough. Great idea!!

  10. Your Cookie Dough Truffles look so good. I am going to make them as soon as I return to cooking after Christmas. I did so much cooking and eating that I almost made myself sick. Needless to say, I have stopped cooking for awhile. Have a wonderful New Year.
