Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

These are fabulous!  My friend Donna makes something similar all of the time for her son, and I have always loved them.  Recently a preschool mom brought me a few of these and my family devoured them. She shared the recipe with me that she found on Pintrest.  I made them and dipped about half in chocolate and left the other half in the freezer.  I dipped the first ones in dark chocolate but my girls begged me to dip the rest in milk chocolate.  They were yummy either way - you just DIP however - you will want to make your family happy!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 sticks butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup milk
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

14 oz dark chocolate candy coating for dipping

Beat butter and sugars in a large bowl using mixer on medium speed til light and fluffy.  Add milk and vanilla. Stir in flour, soda and salt.  Mix on low speed or by hand til mixed and add chocolate chips.  Cover and chill dough for one hour.  Lightly flour your hands after dough is chilled and form/roll dough into 1 inch balls.  Arrange on a baking sheet lined with wax paper and freeze for 30 minutes.  Melt chocolate in microwave or double boiler according to directions. Using a toothpick, dip cookie balls into chocolate using a spoon to help cover them trying to remove excess chocolate from the bottom of the truffle.  Return the cookie dough ball to wax-paper lined baking sheet.  Chill and store in refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to one week.
