Cookie Dough Truffles

Who doesn't love ooey gooey cookie dough?! I love it in ice cream, I love licking the spoon when I make cookies.. and I love, love, love these cookie dough truffles!

Nice soft cookie dough covered in milk chocolate.. to.die.for. I promise. I got this recipe off of the "Recipe Girl" blog.

The pictures didn't turn out great, but don't worry - I'll be making these again soon and I'll be sure to update the photo then.

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2 cups (approx.) of milk chocolate dipping wafers or bark (melted)

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar, mix well and then add the vanilla. Beat in the flour one cup at a time until it's incorporated and you no longer see chunks of brown sugar (if you see any, just squish them with your finger). Beat in the sweetened condensed milk and mix until well combined, stir in the chocolate chips.

Refridgerate the dough until firm (about an hour - maybe more if you want it to be really firm which makes it easier for dipping). Once the dough is hardened up a bit and is ready to go, line a cookie sheet with wax paper, and roll the dough into 1 inch balls (you can make them a bit bigger if you want to - I do! But they are pretty rich and sweet, so for most people a little ball is good). Drop them onto the cookie sheet and pop them in the fridge again until you're ready to dip them.

Melt the chocolate wafers/bark in a microwave safe bowl for 40 seconds at a time stirring in between until completely smooth and melted.

Use a spoon and roll the balls around in the chocolate until well coated, scoop out with the spoon, shake off the extra chocolate as well as you can and then drop back onto the cookie sheet to firm up.

Refridgerate until ready to serve.
