A MUST HAVE DESSERT!

I have a weakness...many of you have the same...CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH!!!

I love eating cookie dough batter while baking cookies. As I was blogging the other night, I came across a super cute blog, Favorites and Things. There I saw something I just HAD to try!


COOKIE DOUGH TRUFFLES!!!


I just had to make some!
Adding the good stuff :)




Cookie Dough Truffles
8 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
2¼ 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 bittersweet) chocolate, coarsely chopped

Mini chocolate chips (for garnish)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.
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.

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, coating in chocolate and shaking gently 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. Once all the truffles have been dipped, store them in the refrigerator until ready to serve.


Let me know if ya'll make them and what you think! These would be perfect to have at ANY get-together!
**This is my 3rd post in a row on sweets!!!** The next one won't include sweets :)
Have a FABULOUS week!!
