I know I already complained on Monday, but (and Michael will vouch for this) I'm a bit of a whiner.
So excuse me while I whine about the fact that I STIIIIIL DO NOT HAAAAAVE THE COOKIE DOUGH LOVER'S COOOOKBOOOOOOK! It's not faaaaair! whyyyy?! WHY DON'T I HAVE IT?!
I love the blog Love & Olive Oil and when I found out Lindsay (the lady behind L&OO) wrote a cookbook ENTIRELY ABOUT COOKIE DOUGH it became my #1 must have item.
Then time passed. More time. And then some more.
And I still do not have it. It's like...probably a crime against nature.
I mean, I've been pretty clear about my cookie dough obsession, yeah? Remember that recipe for eatable cookie dough? Or those peanut butter cookie dough brownies? MMm or those chocolate chip cookie dough balls. The only reasons more of such recipes haven't graced this site is because I'm just so depressed over my lack of cookbook.
Luckily, a few of the recipes from that much desired cookbook have found their way onto the internets. This recipe is one of those recipes. Cookie dough truffles. Oh yeah.
As I was just typing that line...I had major deja vu. Have you ever had that? So crazy. I literally dreamed like a whole moment of time, and I dreamt it last night and it happened today! Weeeird.
Anyway, sorry, back to cookie dough. These truffles are great for multiple reasons.Obviously...they're cookie dough...covered in chocolate. WIN. And, no bake, awesome for summertime! And they're so little you can just sit down and pop them in your mouth one by one and then you look down and....
...oops, they're all gone. :)
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 tbsp. milk
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 and 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- chocolate candy coating (or a combination of chocolate chips & coconut oil)
- Popsicle sticks, cut in half
- In a medium-large bowl, beat together butter and sugars until fluffy.
- Mix in milk and vanilla. Then mix in flour and salt.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Chill dough for 30 minutes, until firm enough to be scooped into 1 in. balls.
- Place the 1 in. dough balls on a wax lined baking sheet and freeze for at least 15 minutes.
- Melt the chocolate for coating.
- A couple balls at a time, remove from the freezer, press half a popsicle stick into each dough ball, and coat in the chocolate. Place on wax paper to set (if chocolate pools, dot on the wax paper and move to a clean spot). Repeat until all dough balls are covered.
- Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
