Cookie Dough Truffles

3 posts in 1 day? Why? Because I like you.....and because I have gotten a few wonderfully nice comments today that put me in a good mood!!! So...need a last minute decadent V-Day idea??  I have just what you need..........COOKIE Dough Truffles, oh yes that's right!
Recipe:
8 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
2 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
½ cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
1½ lb. semisweet or milk chocolate, coarsely chopped (Baker's chocolate)
Mini chocolate chips (for garnish)
Combine the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the flour, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until incorporated and smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the mixture has firmed up enough to form balls
Shape the chilled cookie dough mixture into 1-1½ inch balls. Place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Cover loosely, transfer the pan to the freezer and chill for 1-2 hours.
When ready to dip the truffles, melt the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl (you may have to re-heat every once in a while) Dip each chilled truffle, one at a time using a fork, coating in chocolate and shaking gently or tapping against the bowl to remove the excess.
Transfer to a wax-paper lined surface. If using mini chocolate chips for garnish, sprinkle on top quickly after dipping each truffle before the chocolate sets.
Keep in fridge until ready to serve.....but I set them out for about 20minutes to get the chill off before eating! These babies are RICH and I love them! I gave them to my family for Valentine's Day and they were thrilled!
ENJOY!
