Is anyone else totally in shock that Thanksgiving is only two days away? I planned on making a cute table runner. . . and a banner for our mantle. . . and trying out a few new recipes ahead of time. I have done none of those things. And this recipe I'm sharing today? It has nothing whatsoever to do with Thanksgiving. It would be perfect for a Christmas treat plate though. So I guess if I can't be prepared for Thanksgiving, at least I am getting an early start on Christmas goodies!
I will admit that I am not one that gets the heebie jeebies eating raw cookie dough. At least not in small quantities. But for this recipe I wanted to make a cookie dough that did not contain eggs. I got my inspiration from these Chocolate Chip Cookies. I tweaked it a bit to get a good consistency that would hold up to dipping. They were a huge hit! My family loved them, and I also took a plate to a Relief Society activity and I came home with an empty plate. Drizzling the white chocolate on top is optional, but it sure does make them look pretty!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles
1/2 cup soft butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup finely crushed graham cracker crumbs
1 cup mini chocolate chips
2# candy coating, melted
1/3 cup white chocolate chips, melted
Beat butter, brown sugar, and vanilla. Beat in sweetened condensed milk. Stir in flour, salt, graham cracker crumbs, and chocolate chips. Roll in small balls. Dip in melted chocolate and place on waxed paper till chocolate sets up. Drizzle with white chocolate if desired.
-I like to dip my truffles with a fork, tap the extra chocolate off, then scrape the bottom of the fork on the side of the bowl to get rid of the excess so it doesn't pool at the bottom.
-I also use a toothpick to help me scoot the truffle off of the fork and onto the waxed paper.
-I melt my white chocolate in a ziplock bag and snip a tiny hole in the corner. Makes it so much easier to control the drizzle.
