Even with all the healthy eating and new year’s resolution hype, I can’t resist sharing these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles today! They’re the perfect bite-size truffles, and eating just one (maybe two 🙂 ) wont totally bust your diet.Raise your hand if your favorite part of eating chocolate chip cookies is the dough?! Guilty. (Except for these Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies–they’re the BOMB, and even better baked). I do always feel a little guilt taking a bite of the cookie dough, though. The thought “Is this the time I’m going to get salmonella” crosses my mind and makes me shutter.
So these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles win on all counts. A simple, egg-free cookie dough recipe dipped in melted chocolate. They’re amazing.
- 1/3 cup butter softened
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1-2 tsp milk as needed
- 1 cup mini milk chocolate chips
- 2 cup milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips for melting
In a mixing bowl beat together the butter, brown sugar and vanilla. Stir in the flour, just until combined. If the dough is to dry, add 1-2 tsp of milk. Stir in mini chocolate chips. Grease your hands with cooking spray and roll the dough into 20, small balls (about 1 inch). Refrigerate for 30 minutes, or freeze for 15.
When the dough is firm, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave at 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Drop the cookie dough into the melted chocolate and turn it gently with a fork. Lift it up onto the fork and allow excess chocolate to drip off. Place it on wax paper. Repeat with remaining dough balls. Refrigerate until chocolate is set.
