Chocolate Chip-Cookie Dough Truffles

Those that succumb to the joys of mining for cookie dough in ice cream will love having the mining done for them -- and dipped in chocolate, no less! Do not be tempted to make these truffles with classic chocolate chip cookie dough, though; the egg in classic dough is not safe when eaten raw.

Ingredients
  • 1/3  cup 
    butter, softened
  • 1/3  cup 
    packed brown sugar
  • 1   tablespoon 
    vanilla
  • 1   cup 
    all-purpose flour
  • 1   cup 
    miniature semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 4   ounces 
    dark chocolate or semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 4   ounces 
    chocolate-flavor candy coating, chopped
  • 1   tablespoon 
    shortening
Directions
1.
Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with waxed paper; set aside. In a medium bowl beat butter, brown sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Beat in flour just until combined. Stir in chocolate pieces. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place on prepared baking pan. Cover; freeze about 30 minutes or until firm.
2.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan heat chopped chocolate, candy coating, and shortening over low heat, stirring until until melted and smooth. Remove from heat.
3.
Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Using a fork, dip balls into chocolate mixture, allowing excess chocolate mixture to drip back into saucepan. Place dipped balls on the baking sheet. Let stand or chill about 30 minutes or until set. Lightly drizzle with the remaining melted chocolate mixture.
Storage
  • To Store: Place truffles in a single layer in an airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
