Cookie Dough Truffles
I've been making this recipe for quite a few years... I alway's include them in my Christmas cookie platters and have requests to bring to functions throughout the year as well.
They look so pretty on a platter!!
We have to "force" ourselves not to eat the entire dough before we have coated the truffles!!
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do, they are literally ADDICTING!!

- 1 stick
- (1/2 c) unsalted butter softened
- 3/4 c
- packed brown sugar (i used light)
- 1 tsp
- vanilla extract
- 2 c
- all purpose flour
- 1 can(s)
- sweetend condensed milk (not evaporated)
- 1/2 c
- mini chocolate chips
- 1/2 c
- chopped walnuts (i've used pecans in this as well)
- 2 1/2 lb
- milk chocolate candy coating
1Using either your stand up mixer or bowl and hand mixer, beat butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
Add your vanilla, then alternate adding your flour with the sweetest condensed milk. Once incorporated dough should be pretty thick. Turn off mixer.
3Using a small crockpot, melt your chocolate candies. Dip your truffle dough into the melted chocolate candy using either mini tongs or toothpicks. Place the dipped wet truffles on wax paper lined racks to set.
Sprinkle whatever decoration you prefer on the truffles before they firm up. For Christmas I love the little snowflakes or snowmen!!
(in the picture posted I sprinkled them with white course sugar).
Once truffles have firmed up, place in mini candy liners for a very, very pretty effect!!
**Note** You can use your microwave to melt the chocolate candies as well. Melt chocolate candy in 15-20 second increments, making sure to stir very well in between. You can reheat if chocolate candy is starting to harden.
