Cookie Dough Truffles

This past Sunday, my sister L and I decided to make these Cookie Dough Truffles, but with a few variations.

One, I don't really like nuts in my cookies and neither does EMX so we left them out.

Two, I just dumped the remainder of a bag of mini chocolate chips instead of measuring out the 1/2 cup.  Who wants a limit on chocolate, really?

Three, I used dark chocolate chips for the coating and when I ran out of those, I switched to milk chocolate wafers that I had leftover in the pantry.

Four, instead of immediately forming the balls after mixing, I put the mixture in the fridge for about an hour and then formed into balls and put BACK into the fridge to firm up some more.  MUCH easier and less gooey this way.

The result?  TO DIE FOR!  If you LOVE chocolate cookie dough ice cream like I do, you will love these.  They have the same texture as cookie dough, so you can eat as much as you want and not feel bad or worry about the raw eggs!  I would even dare to say that you could leave these in the mixing bowl, not form into balls at all and just grab a spoonful at a time.  GASP!  But, who does that?  I mean, really.  ;)

  1. Yea! First follower! ;)

    These sound so yummy. I love cookie dough and will admit that I probably eat more dough than the actual cookies!

  2. I did the same as you did - omitted the nuts and added about twice as many chips. Super yummy!! I did form the balls, then then they got all mishapen (sp?) on the bottom from being against the plate, so I had to reshape them. Next time, I'm doing it your way and only shaping once. ;) And I think I told you this already, but I didn't use candy chocolate - I went for a richer, more autnentic, less sweet option and just melted down some semisweet baker's chocolate. They're a little meltier when you eat them (when the chocolate warms where you touch it, it starts to melt and get a little messy), but they taste sooo good that way! And I agree - not having to worry about raw eggs is a huge plus!
