This is basically just cookie dough without raw eggs, so you can gorge yourself without worrying about scary diseases! Perfect. When I was looking up stuff about this recipe, there was also talk about raw flour, but I am willing to ignore that because I don't care - cookie dough truffles!!!
I made little balls and covered one third with melted chocolate chips, one third with melted white chocolate chips and left one third uncovered, but you could easily just eat it with a spoon out of a bowl. The recipe I used is from a cookbook by the bloggers of Love and Olive Oil - I got the recipe as reposted on Bakerella.
COOKIE DOUGH TRUFFLES
Adapted from The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook, reposted on Bakerella
1/2 cup butter, 1 stick (room temp)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup mini-chocolate chips (or normal sized)
toothpicks or small popsicle sticks
Beat the butter and sugars (white and brown) until light and fluffy. Add in the milk and vanilla and mix. Add in the flour and salt and mix. Stir in the chocolate chips. Let it sit in the fridge for at least a half hour. That's your egg-less cookie dough! Dig in now if you just want to spoon it out of a bowl.
Roll into 1" balls. This would be easiest if you had a little ice cream scooper. Line the balls up on a wax paper-covered baking sheet. Stick a toothpick in each ball. Freeze them for about 15 minutes.
If you're covering them with chocolate, melt the chocolate carefully in a saucepan or in the microwave. Dip them carefully in the chocolate and shake off the extra. Drop some sprinkles on top if you want. Let them stand in the fridge for at least a half hour.
