Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles
Adapted from GimmeSomeOven.com
Makes about 5 dozen
2 1/2 cups flour (or 12 oz Soft White Wheat flour)
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar (or honey sucanat)
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar (or honey sucanat)
2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup milk (or soy milk)
1 cup mini semi-sweet chips
14 oz chocolate bark
In a large bowl beat together butter and sugar until fluffy (by hand or with mixer). Stir in milk and vanilla. Mix together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients and stir until incorporated. Mix in chocolate chips.
Cover dough and chill for about an hour in fridge.
When dough is firm, roll into 1-inch balls. Place on wax-paper lined baking sheets, and freeze for 30 minutes.
Melt chocolate according to package directions. (Be sure it is well melted to make dipping easier). Dip frozen dough into chocolate using a fork and tap on side of dish so excess coating will drip off. Return to wax-paper lined tray. Drizzle more chocolate on top if desired. Chill truffles until set, and store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week. Enjoy!
