Cookie Dough Truffles

Cookie Dough Truffles

These are the most fabulous little candies. Easy and so very yummy. I got my recipe from a co-worker. I thought I'd better check their origin and found it at the site noted above.

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips or regular chocolate chips roughly chopped
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I prefer pecans)
1-1/2 pounds dark chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped - I prefer Ghiradelli Chocolate.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Gradually add flour, alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Stir in the chocolate chips and pecans.

Shape into 1-in. balls; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Loosely cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until firm.

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt candy coating; stir until smooth. Dip balls in coating, using two forks, allowing excess to drip off; place on waxed paper-lined or paarchment-paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes. If desired, remelt remaining candy coating and drizzle over candies. Store in the refrigerator.

Yield: 5-1/2 dozen.
