Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

I found this recipe in a Taste of Home Magazine years ago, and it has become one of my most popular candies (I make gourmet cupcakes, truffles, and cakes for a living). They take some time, but they are SOO worth it. They make the perfect gift for Valentine's Day! I place them into individual mini-cupcake liners to dress them up!

Serves:

36 pieces

Prep:

1 Hr 30 Min

Ingredients

1/2 c
butter, softened
3/4 c
brown sugar, packed
1 tsp
vanilla extract
2 c
flour
14 oz
sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c
miniature chocolate chips
solid shortening (crisco)
large bag of chocolate chips (semi sweet)
small bag of white chocolate chips or crushed heath

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream butter,brown sugar, and vanilla.
2
Add flour alternately with sweetened condensed milk, stirring until well mixed.
3
Add mini chocolate chips and stir well.
4
Form dough into 1 inch balls (if the dough is too soft, you can refrigerate for 30 minutes prior to rolling into balls - also helps to flour your hands).
5
Place formed balls on wax paper lined cookie sheets, cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour. (When I've been in a hurry, I have put them in the freezer for 10 minutes and it's worked perfectly.)
6
Melt 1 C chocolate chips with 1 Tbl of Crisco in microwave, stirring every 30 minutes until smooth.
7
Dip balls of dough into melted chocolate (I use a fork so that the excess chocolate will pass between the tines of the fork) and place back on wax paper.
8
Refrigerate dipped balls until chocolate is firm (or freeze them again for approximately 5 to 10 minutes).
9
Decorate the dipped balls however you wish! You may use melted white chocolate to drizzle over them, sprinkle them with heath bits (before the chocolate sets), or sprinkle with a few of the mini chocolate chips.
10
Store in airtight container in the refrigerator.
