First of all, please excuse the terrible photos. I brought these to work for a potluck and when I took the pictures it was 6:00am. These were a real hit with the ladies at work. They are so easy to make and would make a super sweet treat for your valentine. If you love the taste of raw cookie dough, but don’t like eating it because of the raw egg, then these are for you. They taste just like cookie dough, but they don’t contain any eggs. Your sweetheart will love you for making these. Here’s the recipe:
8 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 lb. semisweet (or bittersweet) chocolate, coarsely chopped
Mini chocolate chips (for garnish)
Combine the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the flour, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until incorporated and smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the mixture has firmed up enough to form balls.
Shape the chilled cookie dough mixture into 1-1½ inch balls. Place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Cover loosely, transfer the pan to the freezer and chill for 1-2 hours.
When ready to dip the truffles, melt the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Dip each chilled truffle, one at a time, coating in chocolate and shaking gently to remove the excess. (If at any point during dipping, the cookie dough balls become too soft, return to the freezer to chill for 30 minutes.) Transfer to a wax-paper lined surface. If using mini chocolate chips for garnish, sprinkle on top quickly after dipping each truffle before the chocolate sets. Once all the truffles have been dipped, store them in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
