Cookie Dough Truffles

Salmonella schmamonella...I'll eat this cookie dough any day that I want! I found these little treasures on-line a few weeks ago. I wanted to make them, but I was a little nervous about the whole "dipping them in chocolate thing." It never really works out well for me. I figured I would give it a go anyway, and see how it went. I mean, even if it didn't turn out the way they are supposed to, I would still have a ton of little cookie dough chunks to nosh on! This recipe is so easy too, no crazy concoctions or mixing, just everything in a bowl and go.
You are going to need
1/2 cup softened salted butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 (14 oz can) of sweetened condensed milk
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips
 Combine in a bowl, the butter, sugar, vanilla, and sweetened condensed milk.
 Then add the flour and the chocolate chips.
 You should be able to form the dough into balls at this point. My kitchen gets really hot when I cook because it's a tiny kitchen, so I had to put my dough in the fridge for a little bit. I did it for about 20 minutes. Take the dough out of the fridge, and roll it into walnut sized balls. Place them in the freezer for two hours.
Now take your chocolate chips and 1 tbs butter. I never put mine in the microwave, I do the double broiler method. If you do it in the microwave, melt it in 25 second intervals, stirring in between each.

Now you can throw the cookie dough into the chocolate, and fish it out with spoon. When you are done, put them in the fridge for 2 hours.
 Okay, they should look more solid than this when you are done. I, however, had made mine when company was here, and I didn't have a lot of time to put them in the fridge. So  they started to melt as soon as you touched them.  Yours should be fine.
 I took this pic when I pulled them out of the fridge (again a little melty because it was way early) but it was worth it, they were so good. My co-workers gobbled them up!!! I left a few of the cookie dough balls as they were, with no chocolate. They were great for a quick snack!
Enjoy!

  2. Holy cow - these look incredible. And salmonella free! Which, honestly, doesn't stop me from licking the brownie bowl or eating runny eggs - I'm dangerous!
