Cookie Dough Truffles

I wanted to post one last recipe before Christmas that would be good for any holiday party. When it comes to dessert, I think its really nice to put out small bites for guests sometime after dinner and before the main dessert is served. These cookie dough truffles are a perfect little bite. They also make great gifts. I prefer them right out of the refrigerator but they are meant to be served room temp.

I will return with more recipes after the new year. Layla has just started eating rice cereal this week with applesauce and bananas. She loves it! I will post pictures and I will start the baby part of Sous Chef Baby when I return. I hope you all have a great holiday season!  Enjoy :)

Cookie Dough Truffles 
Makes: 50 Truffles

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups flour
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 cup dark chocolate chips (I like Ghiradelli) 
Extra mini chocolate chip and coconut for decorating

1. In a food processor or stand mixer, beat the butter and brown sugar together. 

2. Add in the vanilla and beat until incorporated

3. Alternating, add the flour and then condensed milk., beating well. 

4. Fold in mini chocolate chips and coconut. 

5. Drop tablespoonfuls of the dough on a parchment lined baking sheet. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour until firm. 

6. Once the dough is firm, roll into balls. 

7. In a microwave safe bowl, add the dark chocolate chips and microwave on high for 1 min. Stir the chocolate and microwave again in 30 min increments until the chocolate is melted and smooth.  

8. Using a toothpick, dip each ball into the melted chocolate and place on parchment to harden.

9. While the chocolate is still wet, place the mini chocolate chips or coconut for decoration. 

10. Refrigerate until ready to serve. If you would like them to be at room temp, take them out of the refrigerator 1 hour before serving.
