Cookie Dough Truffles

Cookie Dough Truffles
Here I go again posting recipes. But since Christmas is only 9 days away, I wanted to share this extremely easy recipe for those of you looking to add to your Christmas cookie collection. We are having a cookie exchange at work and I signed up for Cookie Dough Truffles. They are basically chunks of cookie dough that are actually intended to be eaten as cookie dough (no eggs included). I figured there wouldn’t be anyone at work not excited about that. BUT, here is the kicker, instead of just making the dough into balls and dipping it in chocolate like I have in the past, I got a little more creative with the presentation this time.

The final result is…wait for it…Cookie-Shaped Cookie Dough on a Stick! (Sounds like MN State Fair material, if you ask me…)

First, here is the recipe for the dough:
1. 1 stick unsalted butter
2. 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4. 2 cups all-purpose flour (or maybe a little more, if needed)
5. 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
6. 1/2 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
7. 1-2 packages chocolate bark candy coating


Directions: Mix butter and brown sugar with a mixer. Add vanilla. Gradually add flour and milk, alternately. Lastly, mix in chocolate chips.

Once the dough was finished, I laid it out in about 1 inch flat circles (the less perfect the better, to make it look as much like real cookies as possible).

Next, I added the sticks, and put them in the freezer for about 20 minutes (or until solid enough to dip).

After that, I dipped them in melted white baking chocolate (I also melted a few chocolate chips in with the dipping chocolate to add a tint of brown to look more like the color of real cookies). And lastly, I just wrapped them up and wrote on the sticks to make them look all nice and pretty!

Enjoy!
