Cookie Dough Truffles

Cookie Dough Truffles

1/2 C butter, softened

3/4 C brown sugar, packed

2 1/4 C flour

1  -14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk

1 t vanilla

1/2 C mini chocolate chips ( I used mini m&m's)

2   -12 oz bags semi sweet chocolate chips ( I only used 1 but have 2 on hand, just in case)

1 T shortening, divided

Sprinkles to decorate 

Cream the butter and brown sugar together until light and fluffy.  Add the flour, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla and mix well. Stir in the mini chocolate chips. Shape into 1 inch balls and place on a sprayed cookie sheet and freeze for 1-2 hours.  

In a liquid measuring cup, melt your chocolate chips in the microwave. Only heat it for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating interval. Add about 2 t of shortening to the chocolate and stir to incorporate. Dip each frozen cookie dough ball into the chocolate and then place on wax paper to set.  Sprinkle the sprinkles on top while the chocolate is still soft. Put the truffles back in the fridge to set for about 15 minutes.
