My excuses and a treat to hold you over....

Please excuse my long absence.  Our lives have been turned a little upside down these past few months.  The move was the start of it and things just haven't seemed to calm down since.  Luckily it is starting to feel like we have a grasp of things.  This blog serves me as a hobby outlet therefore being put aside during these past few months.  I look forward to getting back in the groove at the beginning of the year and to hold you over until then I will share a yummy (sinful) recipe with you.

Cookie Dough Truffles- sounds amazing right?  I have come across a few recipes for this and gave one a shot that had received great reviews.  I am not sure if I messed it up or what but it did not live up to my standards.  So I went to my archives and used my recipe for edible cookie dough batter and making the adjustments to turn it into the delightful truffle.

I tested this out on a group of friends that loved them- unfortunately some were leftover and I had my fair share the next day (which they seemed to be better after sitting in the fridge for a day).

Cookie Dough Truffles

1/2 C. of butter
1/2 C. Brown Sugar
1/4 C. sugar
2 T. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 C. flour
1/2 cup of mini semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 lb semisweet chocolate
Mini chocolate chips for garnish

Mix the batter together as you would a normal cookie batter.  Place in the refrigerator until firm enough to form into balls.  Roll the batter into teaspoon sized balls and place on a lined cookie sheet.  I found that it also helps to put the ball back in the refrigerator for a little bit if you have the time.

Melt the chocolate either in the microwave or using a double boiler system.  Dip the cookie dough balls in the chocolate.  I couldn't find an easy and non-messy way of doing this so experiment and do what works best for you.  Garnish the balls with a few mini chocolate chips and store in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat.

Yum!  Enjoy- and I will be back with new recipes and more.
