RECIPE: Decadent Cookie Dough Truffles
These deliciously rich truffles are perfect for cookie dough fanatics and lick-the-bowl-lovers!
4 oz cream cheese, softened
½ cup butter, softened
¾ cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1½ cups milk chocolate chips
1 tbsp vegetable shortening
1) In a mixer, blend cream cheese and butter until creamy. Add brown sugar and vanilla, mixing until combined. Add flour and salt, mixing on low speed until flour disappears. Fold in semi-sweet chocolate chips.
2) Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll cookie mixture into 1-inch round balls. Place on baking sheet and place in freezer for 25 minutes to set. Remove from freezer and roll truffles in your palms until smooth and round, and return to freezer for 5 more minutes.
3) Place milk chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave safe bowl. Heat at 50% power for 30 second increments, stirring between each time until fully melted.
4) Using a fork or skewer, dip truffles in melted chocolate. Place back on parchment baking sheet and refrigerate until ready to eat.
