Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

These are some of Michael's favorite treats. I love them too, but I have a deep fascination with cookie dough so that is no surprise. The recipe for these can also be found in the recipe book we gave out as favors at our wedding. It originally came out of Taste of Home magazine. Here's what you need:
1 stick of butter, softened
3/4 c Brown Sugar
2 c Flour
1 tsp Vanilla
1-14 oz can Sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c chocolate chips (I used semi sweet morsels, but mini chips really work better)
Chocolate candy coating
2 Tbsp shortening +
1-12 oz package semisweet chocolate chips
Cream the butter and sugar

Add milk, flour, and vanilla. Mix well.

It will look all nice and doughy like this.

Stir in the chocolate chips. The dough will be pretty soft at this point. I recommend putting it in the fridge for a few hours or if you are in a hurry, the freezer for about 15-30 minutes.

Roll it into 1 inch or so balls. You may need to pop them in the fridge or freezer again if they get soft.

Melt your chocolate coating of choice. I chose chips + shortening melted in the microwave.

When the chocolate is good and melted, dunk the cookie dough in a few pieces at a time.

Plop them out on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. If you want to get fancy, drizzle some extra chocolate (or melted white chocolate) over top of the cooled truffles. After you have dipped them all, pop them in the fridge until chocolate is set. Then store in the fridge in an airtight container. I am really wanting some of these right now. Enjoy!
